A QR code is short for “Quick Response” and is like a bar code. It is actually an encoded internet address that you can scan with a QR reader on your smartphone. The QR reader scans the code with the camera in your phone and then takes your directly to that internet address.
QR codes were invented in Japan in 1994 and are popular in Japan and South Korea but adoption has been slower in the West.
With all the new smart phones out there we have been adopting this technology in as many areas as possible. It is on our picture boards at our display centers, in our newspaper advertisements and on our feature sheets both inside and outside the property. The QR we use most often use takes you directly to all our listings.
Don’t have a QR reader then head to your App Store and download one now. I have found that the ones from Paperlinks or I-Nigma work very well and are free.
