With growing adherents to the smart phone and tablet market, the number of technology apps seems endless. Also, as most of us are continually on the move it makes sense to be able to access important documents or files without having to lug around the laptop computer. Both Apple and Android have a vast library of downloadable QR barcode applications – most of them free of charge! While up until recently, many magazines and the like carried the URL for an advertisement or article, it is now possible to scan a QR barcode in any publication/print media merely using the onboard camera on your tablet or smart phone. The software deciphers the barcode and will automatically open up the file, video clip, or other media contained within the URL.

Who knows, one day you may be able to download your customs status and release information without having to be at your desktop. It seems that with some innovation and thought such a seemingly simple application can become a powerful information and decision-making tool. Try out the QR-code.
