GS1 Global Location Manager

LocationManager

A single source of truth – an easy, cost-effective and time-saving way to manage and access location information

GS1 Location Manager

LocationManager is an online service that enables Trusts and their suppliers to store, share and manage their locations in an accurate, timely and consistent way. It saves time throughout the healthcare supply chain and gives both Trusts and suppliers a single source of truth for their location information.

GS1 Global Location Numbers (GLNs), which are used to identify any type or level of locations, are now all available in one place – LocationManager.

What are the benefits?

  • Single point of access to location information
  • No more errors due to data inaccuracies
  • Reduced delays
  • Less invoice queries and faster payment
  • Any physical, operational or legal location can be identified in seconds
  • Certainty of shipping and billing to the right location

All Acute Trusts, and their suppliers, will be expected to use LocationManager to manage location information in the future.

What do you need to do?

Trusts and suppliers upload their location information, making it automatically available to all other users through this one service – LocationManager. Every time there’s a change to any of this information, everyone who needs to know is automatically informed.
