As you know I’m a huge advocate of QR Codes. I believe that between QR Codes, RFID tags and NFC (Near Field Communication) technologies, QR Codes will have the largest impact, making it easier for people to check-in using location-based services. At least I’m betting on it. While working on TriOut version two (aka world edition), Lawrence Ingraham and I decided to build a QR Code Reader into the app, but that’s just one part of the QR Code implementation. The second part of incorporating QR Codes with TriOut was adding a custom check-in QR Code generator to the analytics section of TriOut, (aka TriOut For Business).
By adding custom QR Codes to TriOut for Business we allow any verified business to create a check-in QR Code for their location. This not only works for store fronts but for mobile food trucks, conferences, trade shows and locations that may want to direct customers to check into multiple areas inside of their buildings, what we call micro-check-ins. It’s easy to setup and implement as well. First you verify your location on TriOut.
