LONG BEACH, Calif. — DENSO ADC, the Americas sales arm of DENSO Wave Incorporated, inventor of the QR Code®, announced that it has launched a new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DensoADC, where it is inviting customers to sign in and share their experiences with the QR Code, barcodes and barcode scanners, and tell how these technologies have helped them in their businesses.
“Businesses and individuals are constantly finding unique new ways to use the QR Code,” said John Doran, senior manager, Commercial and Industrial Systems, DENSO Sales California, Inc. “Our new Facebook page is a great space to share QR Code ideas, success stories and marketing strategies, and learn from others’ experiences.”
The QR Code is a two-dimensional (2-D) barcode that can hold many times more information than one-dimensional (1-D) barcodes, and in a smaller space. In addition to being used in such diverse industries as manufacturing, warehousing and logistics, retailing, healthcare, life sciences, transportation and office automation, the QR Code is increasingly appearing in mobile marketing and advertising campaigns. Examples of these marketing applications include business cards, retail product displays, billboards and clothing.
DENSO ADC is the Americas sales arm of DENSO Wave Incorporated, a pioneer of CCD technology and inventor of the QR Code. DENSO Wave is among the world’s largest manufacturers of mobile data-capture systems. DENSO ADC manages sales of its barcode-scanner products throughout North and South America.
