High Technology & Electronics

Transforming everyday business processes through global visibility

The high technology and electronics industry is an inherently global industry, making end-to-end supply chain visibility a competitive necessity. The industry sees supply chain visibility as its biggest challenge—and greatest opportunity.

Beyond visibility, companies need to connect with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) more efficiently, control implementation costs, and improve the quality of their data. Key benefits from improved visibility include:
  • Improved supply chain visibility and information sharing
  • Streamlined business processes (e.g., forecasting, invoicing, purchasing)
  • Optimized sharing of standards-based information (e.g., product, location, physical events)
  • Enhancing shipping accuracy 
  • Improving speed-to-market

GS1 Standards in Action

The use of GS1 Standards can help ensure perfect order fulfillment, shorten customer wait times, reduce total supply chain costs, and help attain true product visibility.

For more than 40 years, the GS1 System of global supply chain standards have revolutionized efficiency, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness in a broad range of industries. The GS1 System of Standards are a “common language” that allows companies and their trading partners to identify items at any point along the supply chain. GS1 Standards provide unique identification of items and products that link items to their applicable information. Think of GS1 Standards as the DNA of an item or product moving through the supply chain.

GS1 US is proud to include more than 300,000 businesses and more than 25 industries as members.
