What is a QR Code?
QR codes (quick response code) are a fast way to send information to a mobile device such as a smart phone. The QR code can be scanned by using one of the many scanner applications you can download through any smart market place. The scanner application uses the devices built in camera to scan the QR code and bring up what information is contained. The process is very fast and easy.
How are they used?
QR codes have been around a long time. A subsidiary of Toyota created and used them back in 1994 to track vehicles during manufacturing. The practical use of this technology was quickly recognized and they became very widespread in the Asian and European markets. Now they are commonly seen everywhere in the world displaying everything from a single line of text to a website address.
Why use them?
QR codes are spreading so quickly because people like to scan them. They are fast, easy, and can when used in the right way can be very useful. It is much easier for example: to pull up a scanner, scan code, and be at a web address than to open a browser and type the entire website address.
The biggest problem is that many people are using them to use them. QR codes are a powerful tool only if it directs the end user to a place they want to be. The majority of companies using QR codes direct the user to a website that is huge and not built for a mobile site. Also you are dealing with a entirely different market. When someone scans a QR code they are usually not sitting by a computer and the things the information they need or want is different. On the computer you may want to see more detailed company information, but on your mobile device you only want certain information that is useful for you in that moment.
