How does barcoding on mobile phones work?

Date June 22, 2010 Author admin Comment No Comments



Barcoding on mobile phones is the latest industry buzz, allowing companies to provide their customers with electronic tickets, confirmations and the latest promotions via a barcode.

Promotional offers – Ideal for pro-actively targeting existing customers with new discounts to get them back to your store or reactively allowing customers to request a discount barcode from your website by text rather than printing it out – good news  for the environment too!

Mobile tickets – Cost effective method of giving your customers electronic tickets, ideal for events and transport.

Order confirmations – order online, receive confirmation through a barcode, go in store and scan to pick up the order.

If you think this could work for you – what do you do next?

1. Decide what barcode you want to use.

2D barcodes – PDF417 and Aztec barcodes can store more information than a standard 1D barcode, e.g. name, address, ticket and offer details. Allowing you to track offers by customer or scan details in for tickets or order confirmations.

2. Choose a barcode scanner.
