The success of an EDI implementation is achieved by linking different systems together to ensure an error-free trading system based on GS 1 Bar Codes and GSI EANCOM messages. This case proves the GSI standards are the building blocks of a true paperless and electronic supply chain.

All products are uniquely bar-coded with GS1 Global Standards and all B2B messages conform to GSI EANCOM Standards. These standards create an environment capable of electronic input of detailed product, delivery, location, price and sales data. This allows insertion of data electronically in one end of the supply chain to be carried through to fulfilment with no manual interference. Fulfilment rates increase and error rates decrease for all parties involved in the order fulfilment chain.


The GoFar B2B system is a viable and affordable method of linking retailers to suppliers. GoFar translators verify and check data, ensuring error-free processing and a thorough and smooth flow through the electronic supply chain.
