As a leading UK retailer, Tesco has always placed a high importance on using GS1 compliant barcodes to drive efficiency across the business. Whether the barcodes are used in store at point of sale or throughout the supply chain, barcodes accuracy plays a crucial role in a company's operations. For example, it takes at least five times longer to key in a barcode than it takes to scan one at the point of sale.

"We have seen a 20% decrease in the number of reported errors during 2010". This is due to our continued efforts to monitor and assess the quality of barcodes coming into the business, ensuring their compliance with GS1 standards"

Diane Mellowship,

Barcoding Manager at Tesco plc.
