A QR Code is an optical machine-readable representation of data, which shows data about the object to which it attaches. They are represented by rectangles, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns in 2 dimensions (2D).
These have recently become available to be read from devices such as smartphones and desktop printers.
QR Codes can be output in the following formats:
- Contacts - prompts to add to contacts on a mobile device
- Website / page - loads the URL
- Email URL - prompts an email from a mobile device with contact, subject (and body) encoded
- Phone number URL - prompts a call to a number from a mobile device
There are lots of websites that can produce QR Codes, but we can create custom websites that give you the tools to generate and use QR Codes for yourself.
QR Codes For Efficiencies in Custom Applications
QR codes are slowly becoming popular as a tool for simplifying data input to custom systems. For example, structuring your application to allow staff in the field to simply scan them to trigger specific functions speeds up business efficiencies around data entry. Just have your staff pick up a scanner and press a button to scan makes life easier.
They can be generated as one off's, from a CSV list, or from a database.
