QR codes have heavy-duty applications

Jason Cannon February 14, 2013

Other ideas for QR Codes in a service setting include:

• QR code placed in your lobby with a link to a Facebook page to generate more likes.
• QR code placed in a common waiting area with a link to Google Places/Yelp/Citysearch review page.
• QR code to linked to interesting websites recommend by the manager.
• QR codes for customers to look up the recommended schedules maintenance for their vehicles.
• QR code directed to the service shop’s web page where appointments can be scheduled, and so the customer can bookmark where to go to make their next appointment.

Implementation of QR Code technology has been slow in the heavy-duty marketplace. Volvo is currently the only heavy-duty manufacturer putting QR codes to use in service capacity.

But Matthew Matthew Gallizzi, founder of Notix Tech – a mobile technology company — says a QR Code decal placed in the window of vehicles for sale could easily replace the old-fashioned “sticker,” with many added advantages at the dealer level. 

Gallizzi notes that a QR Code could easily provide the same information as the traditional sticker — mechanical specs, price and warranty information — but also link to videos about the vehicle, test drive footage and additional photographs of the inside should the dealership lot be closed for a closer inspection. 

Generally, QR Codes can be created at little or no cost. Sites like Kaywa and QRStuff are free

To download a QR Code reader, simply visit the app store from your tablet, smart phone or other mobile device and download the one of your choosing. Most of them, too, are free.
