Webinar with Parsionate & Varo
29 June 2023, 2:00 pm | ENGLISH | 45 MINUTES
Customers have become more informed and interested in ethical and sustainable aspects before buying a product. This growing demand for transparency is also reflected in legislation: this year already, supply chain laws presented companies with significant challenges, and soon, the EU Digital Product Passport (DPP) will be introduced as an initiative for higher product transparency.
Businesses that cannot meet these demands risk losing market share and revenue. However, with the right approach, product transparency can transform from a compliance issue to a competitive advantage for your business.
The most promising tool for adopting Digital Product Passports is the 2D barcode, offering buyers a wide range of product information in-store. However, not all manufacturers and retailers are ready for this technology change.
In our webinar with Belgian tool manufacturer Varo, we will show how a solid database and a comprehensive PIM system like Contentserv help businesses meet transparency requirements like the DPP while also unlocking new growth opportunities and differentiate themselves from the competition.
Find out how Varo feels confident about introducing 2D barcodes and is already delivering high-quality product information to their customers today.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How Varo implemented 2D barcodes and the requirements for the Digital Product Passport in their Contentserv PIM solution
- The challenges companies are facing with the organizational implementation of a new software solution and how to avoid them
- How to leverage product transparency to enhance your customers' trust in your company and turn product transparency into a competitive advantage
