We already experienced implementing GS1 barcodes in Ventor (Odoo Inventory mobile app) for some of our customers and were going to release this feature in our generic app. And the Odoo v15 release forced us to do it now 🙂
Now, using Ventor, you can read GS1 barcodes in Odoo v11 and higher (Community and Enterprise). This function works in the Warehouse operations, Instant inventory, Quick info and Internal transfers menus (by Nov. 2021). Support of the other menus will be added in next releases.
You can instantly read the following information coded in a single GS1 barcode (GS1 identifiers in parentheses):
Product barcode (01) (02 + 37) – Global Trade Item Number
Lot number (10)
Serial number (21)
Best before date (15)
Sell by date (16)
Expiration date (17)
Package / Pallet (00) – Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC)
Product owner (401)
For example, if you scan this GS1 128 barcode,
The app will recognize the item, qty (packaging), expiration date, lot number.
And will send the information to related fields in your Odoo.
So now you can receive, pick, and ship your products much faster when they contain GS1 barcodes.
The same for internal moves; you don’t need to separately scan the item, Lot / SN, package, QTY, and more. Just scan a GS1 barcode and destination location. Any inventory adjustments: just scan, scan, scan, and that’s it.
The app also works with SSCC barcodes. You can put items on a pallet by scanning SSCC, and then move whole pallets from one warehouse location to another.
Activate a setting in the app to scan GS1 barcodes. GS1 activation in Odoo (v15e and higher) is not required; Ventor allows working with GS1 barcodes independently from Odoo, and works with v11 and higher.
