WHAT IS A QR CODE?
QR Codes can contain text, a link to a website or file, instructions to send an SMS, and much more
A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode (also known as a matrix code) that, unlike the traditional one-dimensional barcodes that we're used to seeing, can contain far more information. 'QR' stands for 'Quick Response' and the initial use of a QR Code was for tracking vehicle parts during the manufacturing process. Today, via mobile phones with built-in cameras and barcode reading applications, QR Codes are accessible to the masses.
QR Codes are being used to link the offline world with the online, using embedded information that you can access immediately. They can contain a passage of text, a link to a website or file, instructions to send an SMS, or make a phone call, and much more.
The Japanese company, Denso-Wave, invented the QR Code in 1994. Denso-Wave is a member of the Toyota Group companies; while they do make the technology available openly, they do hold the patent rights and Trademark for the term QR Code in Japan and other countries.
