SALTO Systems introduces EAN code standard into product packaging

February 8, 2022

SALTO Systems has introduced EAN13 standardised barcodes into its product packaging answering to partner and sales channel needs. The EAN code is a 13-digit bar code is internationally used to identify individual products.

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 and is used 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 assist partners and installers in the identification and distribution of SALTO products and reduce the margin of error within their own sales channels. One of the major benefits of standardisation through product codes is better warehousing processes and product tracking.

The EAN code will allow SALTO and its partners to obtain valuable information about SALTO products and optimise stock management, product information, operations and improve competitiveness. Each EAN13 code number is unique and describes the attributes of products via identification marks. They can represent details like:

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

The EAN13 standardised barcodes will gradually be adopted across the complete SALTO product range.
