Nissan Improves Car-Buying Experience with QR-Code Stickers
Nissan has set the bar even higher for the automotive industry, yet again. Earlier this month, the company publicized their intent to become the first automaker to incorporate QR-code stickers in every new 2012 model. By 2013, the United States will call for all automobiles sold in the country to have QR-codes.
QR-codes' original purpose was for original equipment manufacturers to be able to track each vehicle part. Now, these codes are becoming more widely used across different industries. By now, you've probably seen QR-codes in magazine advertisements or even on business cards. Nissan has decided to incorporate the codes in a different way.
Nissan is promoting a more interactive shopping experience for drivers by incorporating QR-stickers across their entire new model lineup (beginning with the 2012 Altima). In the near future, consumers will be able to scan the code from a Nissan car into their smartphone and instantly they will have all of the information surrounding that specific model. Nissan is anticipating that this will make the purchasing decision easier.
