Medicine Park's New Barcode Business Card
50% of the cell phones in the United States are now smart phones. Among the things that a cell phone can do is read barcodes. These barcodes can lead you to a description of a product on the Internet but they can also be used to take you to a website. Using this idea as a jumping off point Michael Fahrion designed a new business card which incorporates a bar code that when scanned will take your cell phone to MedicinePark.com expressly designed to work perfectly with cell phones. MPEDA gave the go-ahead and the new card has been delivered to Townhall. These new business cards are an inexpensive but efficient way of getting tourist and visitors to the town's website with its events, shops, and restaurants. Barcode Scanner is a free downloadable app available to all types of smartphones.
You can take it for a spin now. Download the barcode scanner app (if you haven't already) then scan the image of the business card barcode.
