    QR code (in english Quick Response) is a technology born in Japan in 1999. QR code readers can be easily used on all smartphones and advanced mobile phones by installing a free application. QR code means that the content of the code can be decoded quickly by reading it with a bar-code reader, a mobile phone, a smartphone, a tablet or a simple webcam. QR code allows to store more information than a traditional code bar which is one of the main advantage of QR code used in the frame of Anicod service.
