Become a Solution Provider

GS1 Solution Providers are particularly active members who seek opportunities to engage more closely with the GS1 community. There are three levels at which a Solution Provider can engage with GS1 NZ through it’s Partner Programme; Premium Alliance Partner, Business Alliance Partner and Alliance Member. Each offers a scaled package of benefits and entitlements as follows:

Premium Alliance Partners

This is the top tier of engagement and requires a strong commitment to work in close collaboration with us to help deliver a range of e-business and supply chain solutions. Premium Alliance Partners are leaders in their field, whether academic or commercial organisations, and will have a significant reputation and level of influence in the market. You must also have the ability, desire and capacity to participate in GS1 NZ standards education programmes and our sector development strategy.

At this level of engagement you will have access to a broad network of business contacts and opportunities to submit your credentials for tenders and joint projects.

Following consultation, we structure a membership package that mutually benefits both our business objectives.  In addition to this, other benefits apply such as: opportunities to present to our GS1 community, access to key professional GS1 staff members and also all the benefits detailed below as for our Business Alliance Partners.

Requests to become Premium Alliance Partners must be submitted to the GS1 NZ board for assessment. Please contact Annique Davis to discuss the terms and fees.

Business Alliance Partners

At the middle tier of engagement Business Alliance Partners are required to have a strong commitment to become active members of the GS1 NZ business community and to drive adoption of GS1 standards through related solutions and services.

You will have mutually beneficial objectives and activities that align with our sector development strategy.

A membership package that meets both our business objectives is structured following consultation and includes marketing and media opportunities.
