GS1 Singapore Seminar 2016

Date of Seminar: 17 February 2016
Theme: Increase Your Profits with Accurate Asset Tracking!

It has become a widely acknowledged fact that if a company isn’t investing in asset tracking, it may end up losing both money and time in the long run. Properly implemented asset tracking systems will help a company in lowering its costs, streamlining business processes, and even improving customer experience.

In view of this, GS1 Singapore, a Centre of Excellence under Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF), organised a seminar for its members on the topic of establishing an accurate asset tracking with GS1 Standards. Held on 17 February, the seminar proved to be an informative session for the twenty-something participants, who gathered at SATO Asia Pacific for an interesting afternoon of knowledge-sharing, site visit, and networking.
