Report on impact of data standards in retail published for consultation

GS1 UK and PA Consulting Group have published a joint report exploring the impact of data standards in retail.

The report sets out the history of the application of data standards in retail, while presenting two different scenarios depicting what life would be with and without standards.

GS1 UK and PA Consulting Group have also launched a consultation, encouraging retailers and brands to share their views on the future role of data standards and the effect they will have on their customers and business performance.

Comments received during the consultation period will be fed into the next stage of the report.

GS1 UK is a membership organisation, helping businesses involved in making, moving and trading goods, including the retail industry, to standardise their supply chain processes using the common language of GS1 global standards.

PA Consulting Group is a global consulting, technology and innovation firm.

The consultation is running for a month and deadline to submit views is 30 November 2017. For further information: www.gs1uk.org/futurestandards.
