Bryan deserves a big round of applause for his commentary on this topic. I totally agree. 2D barcodes are just a tool. Correctly aligning barcode w/ goals of the campaign and the company's brand promises with the customer experience is critical. A lot of companies fail because they don't pay enough attention to this. It is all about the experience!

If we want QR codes to become a way of life then having the enabling software available in a user friendly way is critical.
