Let’s build GS1 Rwanda together
Where do you get barcodes, how do you apply them, how to make your processes thus more efficient and how to enhance your business relations by doing so? Wouldn’t it be awesome if all of this knowledge would be easily accessible right out of Rwanda? Short distances, direct support, exchange of thoughts with a like-minded community, formation of opinions to address Rwandan business needs – all this is the prospect for a GS1 Rwanda to become a center for training, capacity building and innovative, efficient business processes. And the best: You could be provided with barcodes for your products directly from an organization in Rwanda.
Rwandan entrepreneurs will thus have it easier to participate in the global value chain and thus strengthen trade. GS1 is not a company to be established, but a global organization. To establish your own GS1 organization, different stakeholders need to come together as a community and jointly submit an application to GS1 Global. To ensure that this is successful, we are at your side as a project team and with our experts from GS1 Germany to support you throughout the entire process.
To achieve our goal, we are holding several workshops and community breakfasts so that you, as entrepreneurs, can gather information and organize together. The workshop is planned for November. All IT entrepreneurs, retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, and producers are invited to participate. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact us anytime.
Only the interaction of GS1 standards such as GTIN and barcode makes it possible to control business processes across company boundaries. GS1 Solutions are certain application areas of GS1 that are often cross-industry and cross-standard. They may vary from Member Organisation to Member Organisation.
