Application of QR technology to simplify business process and reduce carbon footprint

At Rocktime we are often presented with challenges faced by our clients that require us to take a broad approach to problem solving. Sometimes this requires us to consider writing code that builds functionality that is shaped to perform in a certain manner and involve different audiences. Other times it is understanding technology that exists and adapting its usage with clever software development to enable the same result. Recently a long standing client 'CBL' approached Rocktime with such a challenge.

Challenge - 'How can we address the overhead of resupplying instructions for hire machinery to our customers who fail to return them'?

Solution - ' Digitise all instruction manuals, make them available online and connect the correct manual to the piece of machinery through the use of a QR code'.

The result was a cloud based application which offers the ability to upload Adobe PDF instruction manuals and assign them to a record with a unique identifier in the form of an individual URL string. Using a QR code builder to create QR code image of the URL string print to a sticker and label each and every piece of machinery.

Customers renting machinery are able to scan the QR code (automatically recognised by IOS devices and on Android by downloading a QR code reader app), this launches a web browser and reveals the instructions manual for that piece of machinery.

The added benefit is the removal of paper thereby reducing the company's carbon footprint.

If you are faced with a challenge please get in touch and we'll offer you a similar positive result to overcoming it.
