Pacific Hoists has launched their new QR Code Program designed to provide end-users with ‘point of use’ information on their product range. The QR Code Program follows the corporate identity change and redesign of the website by Pacific Hoists.
An abbreviation for Quick Response Code, the QR Code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background.
Each code is unique and contains a wide range of information, which can be decoded through a QR Code Reading App on a smartphone. Available for download from the App Store, the app is used to scan the code through the phone’s camera for decoding the information automatically. QR Code Reader programs include Optiscan, RedLaser and Telstra Code Reader.
The QR Code on each Pacific Hoists’ product will allow users to access specifications, technical drawings and instruction manuals in a quick and environment-friendly way through a simple scan using a smartphone and the app. This information can be saved on the smartphone or accessed again by re-scanning the code.
Pacific Hoists has implemented the QR Code on the Hitachi electric chain hoists by placing two codes on each product. The first one is placed on the hoist body and provides easy and immediate access to the instruction manuals while the second code is located on the pendant and will direct the user to all Hitachi specifications, technical drawings and the manuals.
Pacific Hoists will soon extend the QR Code Program to other product ranges.
According to CEO Richard Crake, implementing the QR Code Program will add value to their products and is part of Pacific Hoists’ commitment to further improving their business on a day-to-day basis.
