Code EAN (European Article Number), also known as the International Article Number, is a barcode system to identify products. It consists of a series of numbers encoded into a barcode format that can be easily scanned by barcode readers. The EAN code typically contains 13 digits, although there are shorter versions like EAN-8. Each digit represents different information, such as the country of origin, manufacturer, and specific product details. This standardized system enables efficient inventory management, accurate product tracking, and faster checkout processes.
By scanning the EAN code, retailers can quickly retrieve product information, including pricing, stock availability, and other relevant details, enhancing overall operational efficiency and customer service.
