A QR code is a so-called Quick Response Code. This barcode is made on the basis of a two-dimensional matrix. The code of the QR Code leads the visitor to a certain page or sets a certain action in motion.

You can compare such a QR Code with a QR code in a restaurant. More and more restaurants are choosing to place such a QR code on, for example, the tables. If you scan such a QR code, you will see the menu on your smartphone. Convenient, affordable for the restaurant and also environmentally friendly.

An example of such a desired action is referring the visitor to the app store. In the app store, the visitor can directly download the app of your company or webshop. This is just one of the many examples of actions that you can process in a QR code.

The most important advantage of a QR code can be found in the convenience. All the visitor has to do is scan the QR code. After the visitor has done this, the desired action is immediately carried out for him / her – convenience serves the human being.
