Using a QR code to provide additional information about your product is a great way to free up space on the packaging or the product it self.


QR codes on product packaging promote customer engagement and brand awareness, as well as knowledge about the product itself. The more transparency the customer has, the more they are going to trust you and continue to purchase more from you instead of choosing another brand.

A QR Code also uses a small amount of real estate allowing for a wider range of information on the product or packaging.

Nutritional Information

Use QR Codes on food packaging to share nutritional information and allergens contained in the product. Consumers can scan these QR Code food labels while shopping in the aisles and access in-store information to sway their buying decisions.

The QR code can share nutritional facts, reviews, or even some sort of video or backstory about you or your product. Keep in mind that this content can be changed at any time.

QR Codes on food packaging to enhance social media engagement

Make your social media handles accessible to consumers via QR Codes on your food packaging. Ask them to post a review and tag your brand online, or direct them to your latest posts for a like and share. Curate fun social media games to boost your brand appeal and elevate the consumer experience.

QR Codes on Packaging

QR Codes can be printed on different types of product packages – primary, secondary, and tertiary packaging.

E-tailers are now increasingly implementing QR Codes on their packages as it not only reveals crucial data about the manufacturer but also engages customers via discount coupons, deals, future product planning’s, line-up of collaborations, et al.

Upon scanning these QR Codes, consumers can rate and review the product too.


Brand Awareness

According to a RetailDive, nearly 60% of consumers search for product information on their phones whilst shopping.

Placing QR Codes on or next to the product and even on tags can empower customers with more information about the product they are purchasing and encounter seamless transactions to enhance their online shopping experience, thus contributing to an omnichannel retail strategy,

Most consumers’ biggest woe is that the products on the internet are unreliable, not secure or don’t have enough reviews. Brands fail to target these pain points before reaching out to their audiences.

How To Use QR Codes for Worker Saftey

QR Codes can help you avoid accidents and mishaps that happen in handling equipment. You just need to create QR Code and link training videos to it. And paste it on the equipment.

Upon scanning via a smartphone, the workers will be redirected to those videos. This way, you can provide instant guides to workers.

QR Codes In the Field Equipment

Many-a-time, you want to give detailed information about the equipment. But the limited space allows you to provide only selective information.

With QR Codes, you can add details such as ownership, destination, and use of that machinery/equipment in current project and timeline of delivery.

Plus, you can use QR Codes for technical documentation. That is, you can encode key information about the equipment such as weight, height, and materials used in its production.

QR Codes for Home Products

In a similar way you can provide care and usage information on products around the home from Mattresses, kitchen equipment, Lounge care and TV trouble shooting.

Move outdoors and gardening equipment etc can all have links to your product and additional services and offers.

Identify workers effortlessly

You can create a personal profile of every worker in the database. In this, you can add details such as their contact information, skill set, and training level.

And then encode all this data in a dynamic or static QR Code. You can also update the information whenever required. And these QR Codes can be placed on helmets which engineers wear, tags or passes etc.
