The Quick Response Bankruptcy Lawyer

20 Apr The Quick Response Bankruptcy Lawyer

Has your legal practice jumped on the QR Code bandwagon or has the QR Code jumped the shark? A QR Code, or “Q”, for short, is the latest greatest must-have high-tech business card you can wear on your sleeve, email, Gmail, even pony-express mail, and, yes you can tattoo it onto a body part. Think supermarket price bar code on steroids.

The Quick Response Code is a pixel generated collection of information packaged into a neat square comprised of dot artwork. Much like a barcode, you can create your personal QR Code, in multiple versions, with each version containing a specific message or URL. One can contain contact information, one can be the URL to a website or to a map with directional information to your business; you can offer special announcements, videos, press releases or just about anything that can be printed on paper or linked to a webpage.

The information is read with an optical scanner that recognizes the universal code. Android and Apple based phones can be programmed with software applications, or apps, to interpret the QR Code data. The ubiquitous camera cell phone serves as the quick scan reader.

As a practical application, the bankruptcy lawyer can use QR Codes to convey contact information, display office directions, promote the brand or explain complicated bankruptcy terminology. Imagine a box on a standard business card – scan the code with a camera phone and read the advantages of filing bankruptcy.

Codes are usually a bit larger than a postage stamp and can be expanded, depending on the amount of embedded information, though expanding the artwork can corrupt the data. The process can self-correct a small amount of corruption, though the final product should be tested, or proof-read, for accuracy. Users must be careful to isolate placement of the QR generated code [techies call this creating a buffer zone] so the optical scan reader does not pick up extraneous information and scramble the message. Get your QR Code, place it, set it and forget it, or change the data by using a short url service provider to maintain an adaptable QR Code account. You can create your own QR Code by picking a site from this Google list of QR Code generators.

A QR Code signals cutting edge technology. In practice, the code provides a quick shortcut to information. Is this really must have? No, but more with less, sooner than later, plays well in an attention deficit impatient society.
