WeQreQR was created as a result of the trademarked award-winning Digital Information Hub’s Product. The Hubs incorporate multi—URL QR codes which link to websites, videos, PDF, automated feedback forms and host of other digital literature through one interactive live hub.
The hub’s inventor, Steffan Gimblett, who has over 20 years’ experience in the public sector, used many QR code generating platforms to achieve his goals but, by using the generators, he quickly realised that he could improve on what was already available by introducing an even better generator platform offering and exceptional user experience.
More importantly, Steff discovered that most qr generator platforms do not cater for the single user, someone who only wants one QR code, as all other generators have expensive medium to high use pricing plans.
Here at WAreQR we are the first generator platform to offer a pricing plan for the single QR code user, making the exceptional technology accessible and affordable for all, while at the same time catering for small, medium and large needs with industry leading price plans.
I began to notice that QR codes were becoming ever more prevalent in our daily lives as they are being widely used by major advertising companies and social media as a means of improving communication between them and their customers while at the same time saving money on print costs.
I began researching how QR codes worked and discovered their amazing potential, the variety of what could be linked to them, the wealth of information which can be communicated and how they can be applied in any sector.
I have been a Manager in the NHS for 15 years now and know only too well that communication with our patients is paramount. I was also acutely aware that although posters and leaflets have a place, they are very costly to produce, are hardly environmentally friendly and I didn’t believe we used digital communication methods effectively enough.
So, I came up with the idea of getting rid of our cluttered poster laden information board in reception, and replacing it with some kind of digital communication interface where we could harness the technology of smartphones. And so QR Info Pods were born.
As a practice, we simply decided what information we wanted to communicate to our patients and converted that information into dynamic QR codes. We worked closely with our chosen design and print company to produce a simple but distinctive design for the QR Info Pod. Through a number of prototypes and an extensive testing period, I am now satisfied that the product I have produced meets my initial criteria of creating a seamless experience for the user.
I am proud of the product I have produced and I’m proud that this new technology has helped to engage our public with the services that we, and other health organisation have to offer, bringing us closer together than ever before.
