A QR Code (‘Quick Response’) is a mobile phone readable barcode. Simply put, a QR Code is a ‘print based hypertext link.
You can encode a URL into the QR Code, point your mobile phone (or other camera-enabled mobile) at it. If the device has a QR Code decoding software installed, it will start up your browser and go to that URL.

We are currently researching how we can incorporate QR coding technology into our product ordering process.
