You are welcome once again to today’s information session. I will start by asking if you have a smart phone?
If your answer to my question is yes it is most likely that you have never used it to scan a QR Code.
What is a QR Code(QRC)?
QRC stands for Quick Response Code and in simple terms It is a way of encoding information such as website links or web systems
so that other devices such as smartphones can gain easy access to the system. You still do not understand? Okay, i will give an example.
Let us assume you run a business that has a website and you want your clients to be able to visit you website through their smartphones; there are two ways i can think of right now of achieving such:
1. Giving them the link to your website(by mouth, on paper and through SMS/email) and then they copy and paste that on
the browser application on their smartphones (mozilla firefox, internet explorer and several others) to be able to view your website.
2. Giving them a thank you note that has printed on it a QR Code.
Despite the fact that many may be used to the first method, I definitely see the second as a faster, easier and a more professional option. First is because it will enable you direct the client at every point in time to what you exactly want them to see on your website. In this case if you want them to respond to a question, they do not need to click a question button by the side when they get to the site, the code takes them straight to the question or the item you want them to see at that particular point in time.
How do i read a QR Code?
You can read a QRC using the following simple steps:
1. Download and install a QR code reader from the respective app store.
For android smartphones you should be familiar with an image like the one shown below.
2. When the QRC reader is launched, place your phone camera against any QR Code be it on your computer or on paper and your phone will automatically read and interpret the code.
