The Magic of Updateable QR Codes

Updateable QR codes are a game-changer, offering a range of benefits that you might not be aware of. At their core, they function much like traditional QR codes – you scan them with your smartphone, and they can link you to digital content. However, the real magic lies in their flexibility.

  1. Track Your Success:
    Imagine being able to track how many people have scanned your QR code. With updateable QR codes, you can do just that. Whether you're running a local business or promoting a community event, having access to statistics can help you understand what's working and what needs improvement. This is a game-changer for marketing campaigns and events because you can make data-driven decisions and tailor your strategies accordingly.
  2. Sustainability Matters:
    In the land of the long white cloud, we take our natural beauty and conservation efforts seriously. That's why an eco-friendly option is always a win. Traditional printed QR codes often go to waste when the content they link to needs an update. But with updateable QR codes, there's no need to reprint anything! This is a small yet impactful step towards a more sustainable New Zealand.
  3. Easy Peasy Updates:
    Here's the real star of the show – the ability to update the redirect link of your QR code from within your account anytime you want. So, let's say you have a QR code on your restaurant menu that links to your website. If your website's menu changes, there's no need to print new menus. Just log into your account, update the QR code's destination, and voila – you're good to go! This not only saves you money but also minimizes waste.
