Quick Primer on QR (Quick Response) Codes

In New Technology on September 1, 2011 by Lock+Store

Since we last posted on QR or Quick Response codes, we have had some feedback that the barcodes were adopted in Japan a few years back. In the US, they have just begun to adopt the system and a few self storage industry players are already on board. In Singapore, I’ve noticed that QR codes are displayed on each Groupon voucher, but it seems not every merchant has adopted the system. Some either are too lazy or don’t have the system in place to scan the codes. As a result, customers can use the same voucher over and over again. I may not be interpreting Groupon’s use of QR codes correctly, if so, please feel free to enlighten me.

I did a quick google search and found a reader-friendly quick primer on QR codes by Dataplex that serves as a basic introduction to the technology for interested SMEs. Here’s the link.
