GS1 eCom denotes the GS1 standards used for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). It involves the transfer of structured data, based on agreed standards, from one computer to another, by electronic means and with minimal human intervention. This, in turn, provides a faster, cheaper and more accurate solution for exchanging commercial data than its manual / traditional counterpart which is slower, cost intensive and prone to error.
GS1 eCom standards are based on UN/EDIFACT (United Nations Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport), which is a set of internationally agreed upon standards, directories and guidelines for EDI.
