Why choose QR-Code® (over other 2D Codes)?

‘QR’ stands for Quick Response, a 2D barcode technology invented in 1994 by the Japanese corporation DensoWave. Unlike conventional 1D barcodes, QR codes contain up to 4296 characters and can be read by Apps installed on your mobile device, by simply scanning (photographing) the code.

Uses can range from simply launching a URL, to the downloading of exclusive content (text, images, video or sound)


• QR-Codes® are easily identifiable.

• The QR-Code® is an ISO "Open Standard", free from constraints of copyright or patent laws.

• No proprietary reader is needed, compatible with all readers respecting the QR standard

• QR-Code® has now become a standard format across the US, Europe and Asia
