QR Codes

What's that?

QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) are a form of 2D bar codes. These codes are unique because they are easily recognizable, connect users to information quickly and can usually still be read even if the code is damaged. In the age of smart phones, QR codes provide a quick way to connect to a website, maintenance record, inventory software and more. Another common use of QR codes is for advertising. They provide a fast and simple way to connect customers to a website, a video, social media or for use in special promotions.
