SALTO Introduces EAN Code Standard into Product Packaging

SALTO Systems has introduced EAN13 standardized barcodes into its product packaging answering to partners and channel needs. The EAN code is a 13-digit bar code used internationally to identify each product. 

The International Article Number (also known as European Article Number or EAN) is a standard describing a barcode symbology and numbering system used in global trade to identify a specific SALTO product model, in a specific packaging configuration, with a unique identification number.

The use of EAN codes across SALTO products will allow partners and installers in the identification and distribution of SALTO products and reduce the margin of error within their own channels. One of the major benefits of standardization through product codes is having better warehousing processes and product tracking. The EAN code will allow SALTO and its partners to obtain valuable information about SALTO products, and optimize stock management, product information, operations, or even improve competitiveness.

The introduction of EAN13 codes will facilitate the selling and distribution of SALTO products across the channel. EAN codes help in distinguishing one SALTO product model from others easily and fast. These numbers are unique and describe the attributes of the products via identification marks. They can represent details like:

  • The type of lock, cylinder, or reader model
  • Technology compatibility
  • Price, weight, or color
  • Manufacturer
  • Country code
  • Other product-related data

The EAN13 code standardized barcodes will be adopted gradually into the complete product range from SALTO.
