Cracking The Code: How To Think About QR 26 October 2010
What we’ll cover: Origins & Early Adoption Evolution of Proprietary Codes Considerations & Recommendations What’s Next?
Origins & Early Adoption
What are Quick Response Codes? A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode, readable by QR scanners or QR scanning apps available on Smartphones. The information encoded can be text, a URL or other data. QR Codes are one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. Sources: Wikipedia, Denso-Wave Corporation
Origins of QR Codes Created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR codes were first implemented as an order/product scanning system for automotive parts. Benefits: ,[object Object]
Significantly reduce the cost of forms compared with conventional slips.Source: Denso-Wave Corporation
How do they work? QR Code Bar Code Contains data Contains no data Contains data Contains data Source: Denso-Wave Corporation
How do they work? Application* decodes data Data instructs device to perform a task Scans (takes pic) of code on mobile device User encounters QR Code Source: Graphic adapted from a Retina Funk blog post
What exactly is encoded? Source: “QR Codes Explained”, QRme.co.uk
Early Adoption of QR Codes (Insert “bowl of cherries” joke here.) 10
Adoption of QR Codes grew first in Asia, then Europe, driven by quick-response programs created for consumer mobile devices without the benefit of a full QWERTY keypad. 11
The QR code serves as a shortcut to typing a full URL or phone number. In this example, the code delivered a movie trailer and local show times to London commuters waiting for tube trains. 12
It’s common for QR Codes to deliver richer marketing or product information, but some instead encode customer information. For example, Continental (pictured) and other airlines continue to experiment with QR Codes to expedite the on-boarding process.
Calvin Klein recently tested QR Codes when the company replaced several “racy” outdoor ads with this giant code – to help distribute an uncensored version of the advertising. 14
Adoption of QR Codes To celebrate Internet Week 2010, the City of New York outfitted Times Square with a rotation of several large ads featuring QR Codes. Inclusion of the codes catered to both the tech-savvy crowd visiting for Internet Week and the press who had more reason to talk about these ads because of the QR. 15
QR Codes work best as one component of a larger program. Nike’s True City program uses QR in conjunction with a mobile app, print, outdoor, and an evolving network of content curators to help fans learn more about select European cities, their culture, and, of course, where you can buy a new pair of Nikes. 16
Google uses QR Codes to bridge online and offline worlds.The Favorite Place program helps businesses leverage the extended Google universe (Maps, Ratings, etc), but also many Android devices that can now read QR without any additional apps.
Others strive to connect this life with the next… In Japan, “machine-readable tombstones” use QR to let visitors view images of the deceased, browse the guestbook, even make an entry using a cell phone.
Best Buyconnects shoppers with relevant information to inform their purchase decision.  In stores, QR codes link to product reviews, images and other information from the Best Buy mobile site. On circulars, QR codes link shoppers to full product inventory and related product accessories.
Evolution of Proprietary Codes
What are Proprietary Codes? A Proprietary Code is another type of two-dimensional barcode. They are experiencing strong growth in the US but do not have the global reach of non-proprietary two-dimensional codes (e.g. QR codes). They can reveal text, a URL or other data, though a Proprietary Code’s data is stored on a cloud-based server, not within the code. Another distinction is that these codes are not scannable by a universal two-dimensional barcode reader. They either require their own proprietary reader or in some cases, can only be encoded via MMS or email.
Why are brands adopting them in the US? ,[object Object]
Branding ability
Free or low cost to experiment
Follow-the-leader,[object Object]
E-Mail
MMS (for certain carriers)
Ongoing alerts come from a long codeFeature phones – are they worth it? ,[object Object]
Cannot access data, so can really only engage via SMS,[object Object]
Non-Proprietary Decodes instantly /  Requires Internet QR code EZ code Easier to Use More Difficult to Use Decodes in the cloud / Does not require Internet Microsoft Tag Jag Tag Snap Tag Proprietary
Considerations & Recommendations
We don’t really need QR & 2D codes.

  • 22. What are Proprietary Codes? A Proprietary Code is another type of two-dimensional barcode. They are experiencing strong growth in the US but do not have the global reach of non-proprietary two-dimensional codes (e.g. QR codes). They can reveal text, a URL or other data, though a Proprietary Code’s data is stored on a cloud-based server, not within the code. Another distinction is that these codes are not scannable by a universal two-dimensional barcode reader. They either require their own proprietary reader or in some cases, can only be encoded via MMS or email.

  • 38. Criteria for Determining Use of QR Codes Be honest: are we simplifying or complicating a user experience? If we’re complicating, why? Is the intended audience likely to require education on how to use QR? What is the overall experience? Does QR compete with or compliment another call-to-action? Is the context right? Are the codes in places where they’ll be noticed? Is there adequate cell reception? Is it an integrated part of a larger, coordinated effort – rather than an add-on? Is the encoded content compelling, worth the effort of retrieving it? If the intention is solely to gain “cool points”, why? Are everyone’s expectations set accordingly? No crummy commercials.
