Scanapalooza: QR Codes – Where, How and Why They’re Being Used

Lab42 surveyed 500 Americans over the age of 13 to discover where people saw QR codes, how they were using them, and why they were scanning (or not). This survey was conducted online via social networks from July 28 to August 1, 2011 among 500 social media users. Take a look at the infographic below to see the scantastic results:

IFS Announces New Brand and Website, Launches Social Media

We continue to embrace our founders’ ideals as we move into a new era. As of October 19th, 2011, Independent Forms Services has simply become IFS. Our new tagline – Changing the Way You Think About Print – reflects the way our company has also changed over the past 35 years. We have grown from a forms distributor into a solutions provider with many different product lines and services. We have adapted to new printing processes and technological changes without losing our focus, which has always been superior customer service. Print has been, and always will be, our world – but we offer much more than that.

We encourage you to browse this new website and explore the many ways that IFS can change the way you think about print. You can also click the “Get Social” button below to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.

Why Cleaning Cards are a Must Have for Check Scanners

Recently, we've had experiences with clients having difficulty achieving maximum read rates on branch capture documents. What we have found on most occasions after reviewing the documents is that the scanners have not been properly cleaned. In addition, it is also critical that the documents are properly jogged prior to reading to avoid piggybacking.

Just What is a QR Code Anyways?

We’re sure you’re seeing them. You might not know what they are, or exactly how to use them, but they can be powerful for your business. Simply put – they are a way to link your print media to your website or blog. Visit Independent Forms Services’ QR Code Information Page to learn more about the codes, gain insight on practical as well as interesting uses, and gain access to scanning software links so you can start using QR codes today.
