Now that QR codes have been around for a little while now and are fairly prevalent, it feels safe to say that they have not caught on with the general population. In 2012, roughly 20% of people in the U.S. scanned QR codes, according to Pitney Bowes. Maybe it’s just me, but that number probably hasn’t increased much since. I know I haven’t scanned a QR code in that time frame.

A few years ago, people were touting QR codes—those crazy, speckled black and white squares—as the greatest thing since email. You couldn’t read a magazine or pass a bus stop without seeing one, and brokers quickly employed them in every phase of commercial property marketing. Well, now it’s 2014, and the QR code has become Questionably Relevant. Turns out, scanning a code to get to a webpage wasn’t a revolution in commercial property marketing.
