Moving Forward in 2017:
Brands and Retailers Meeting Consumers Where They Are

Article written by:

Angela Fernandez,
Vice President of Retail Grocery and Foodservice,


The relationships and interactions between brand owners, retailers and consumers are changing in our increasingly digital, always-connected landscape. Comparison shopping has taken on new meaning with the advent of online retailers and e-marketplaces, and with social media’s growing role in influencing consumer opinions.

On top of that, increasing consumer interest in a brand’s character, from environmental sustainability to nutritional and sourcing information, is driving new product information requirements — especially when it comes to food.

These and other evolutional shifts will usher in a lot of changes in 2017 and beyond.

Have Your Renewed Your GS1 Electronic Certificate?

It's a new year for new beginnings!

Following the launch of GS1's newly re-branded certificates in 2015, re-designed based on the initiative by GS1 Global Office, member companies are reminded to renew their certificates.

These membership certificates are printed with a barcode symbol that will allow anyone to ensure the authenticity of the cert. It also enables member companies to view their renewed GS1 Electronic Certificate with the membership expiry date.

The authenticity is verified simply by scanning the barcode symbol via the iGepir mobile application.

The iGepir App is free for download:


For more information on how to get your certificate renewed, please feel free to contact GS1 Singapore at 6826 3077 or email us at!

Transforming to a ‘Digital Enterprise’:
Key Steps for Small and Medium Businesses

Article courtesy of:


We live in a digital world where disruption and innovation have emerged as the “new normal”. The pace of change is rapid and possesses the ability to transform our lives by offering alternative and superior products and technologies that will enhance ‘product-priceperformance’ equation for the end-user.

To highlight the power of this disruptive force in action, we can look at how the world of telephony has evolved over the last ten years. Gone are the days when we used to use a mobile phone only for making phone calls. Today the innocuous handset has evolved into the next-generation gadget that we call a ‘smartphone’. This smart phone has emerged as a ‘onestop source’ for us that we utilize for not only making phone calls but also exchanging information through data downloads, leveraging multiple social media apps for shopping and fulfilling banking transactions at the click of a button.

In essence, we have created a digital revolution in the way we communicate and transact by using best-in-breed technology.
