Quality Assurance

What is quality assurance?

Product and image information is shown in many places throughout a product’s journey through the supply chain. Products have much to share about themselves!

Product data quality, barcode quality and image quality are necessary to maintain a consistently high quality level of your and your industry’s product data. High data quality helps both consumers and retailers.

Quality Assurance Services

Fortunately, there are services that can help you with getting your information right. Suppliers with the service agreement Validoo Supplier can at any time start quality assurance of your trade item information, your barcodes and your pictures.

Quality assurance of trade item information and barcodes

Quality assurance of trade item information is the manual check of your digital trade item information, as compared to a physical or a digital product sample. A specialist will help you secure your product data quality before you start selling the product.

We check that the following:

  • measurements,
  • product markings, (for example: KRAV, FSC)
  • packaging type,
  • storage temperature,
  • ingredients lists and nutrient values

… are correct and in agreement with the information on the product packaging. In total, we check approximately 50 different attributes that must follow the GS1 standard for trade item information.

Barcode quality assurance is a manual check that the barcode on the packaging is legible and follows GS1 standards for barcodes. About 20 parameters are checked by our specialists with the help of advanced scanning equipment.

The checks reveal whether your product data quality and the barcode are up to par. If it is not, we provide an easy-to-understand list of corrections to be carried out.

If you are logged into Validoo, you can order a quality assurance and then see the status.

Quality assurance of product images

Quality assurance of marketing and planogram product images entails a manual check of your image, which gives your reseller proof that it is of sufficiently high quality. An image specialist will help you audit your image quality before you start selling your product.

We check that:

  • image quality
  • metadata
  • the image’s consistence with its trade item information

… complies with industry rules for image quality. We check that approximately 30 attributes follow the global GS1 standard for product images.

Once the image is approved it will be made available for publishing, and it is then ready to be shared with retailers and other recipients in Validoo.
