Why QR Codes Haven’t Had A Great Impact In Commercial Property Marketing

Why QR Codes Haven't Had A Great Impact In Commercial Property Marketing | IUseSocial.com

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. In fact, in most cases it was just a plain old waste of time.

The QR code has been a popular punching bag for the nonplussed tech press, but Mercedes-Benz has figured out a way to not only make the over-endowed barcode useful, but life-saving. The ADAC — or the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club — is Germany’s version of the AAA. And they require every automaker to provide a “rescue sheet” in vehicles sold in Germany. The sheet provides first responders with information about the placement and volatility of everything from fuel lines to airbags, pressurized cylinders, and the high-voltage cables fitted to hybrids. This gives paramedics, police, and firefighters a map of the vehicle so they don’t cut through something that goes “boom.” How a QR Code Could Save Your Life | Autopia | Wired.com Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

QR Codes added to UKHO's Standard Nautical Charts

In an initiative to deliver the benefits of digital solutions to users of paper navigational charts, the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has introduced Quick Response (QR) codes to its portfolio of Standard Nautical Charts. All newly printed versions of 3,371 Standard Nautical Charts and Mariners' Routing Guides, including Print-On-Demand charts, now feature a unique QR code. By scanning the QR code, the user will be taken directly to the relevant page for the scanned chart on the UKHO's searchable Notes to Mariners database, known as NM Websearch, where they will be provided with instant access on their smart phone or tablet to chart status information. This is a valuable chart management tool that will help to deliver the latest navigational safety information at the touch of a button.

QR codes are getting into politics by engaging voters

It is far from rare, nowadays, to see QR codes here and there, including on poster and billboard ads, as well as on bus stops and on food packaging, but now they are being used in an entirely new way for the European Elections this year. A South East standing party in the 2014 elections will have the barcodes added to the ballot paper. This is the first time that QR codes have made it onto the country’s ballot papers. This is because the YOURvoice party has managed to incorporate the barcodes into their official logo. This has never happened before in the U.K., according to the Electoral Commission. It was chosen by the party to be able to give voters the ability to scan using their own smartphones and a free reader app. Source: QR codes are getting into politics by engaging voters - QR Code Press | QR Code Press Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.
