ZDNet has just posted an exclusive podcast interview with ScanLife CEO and President Mike Wehrs. The interview covers security benefits of using a managed platform like ScanLife, as opposed to QR Code generators which are more prone to rogue and malicious content.
Check out the interview here and let us know what you think!
If you’re like us, you’re always disappointed after you scan a QR code and receive a poor user experience. Either it links to a complicated PC formatted website, or it’s not providing additional value (i.e. simply a home page). The content after the scan is really the most important piece to any successful QR Code project.
To make this easier, we have come up with the Custom Menu Code which is available right from the ScanLife platform with any of our Pro Accounts.
This new code action allows you to easily mobilize your brand – and your code in a matter of minutes.
Creating a Custom Menu Code is simple, just follow these steps:
1. Upload an image
2. Choose a background color
3. Enter headline & body text
4. Choose your menu items

We’ve just released our latest campaign examples from July. Like always, campaigns ranged from a variety of industries including Tourism, CPG and Retail. The summer has also become a popular time for sweepstakes, as we had codes linking users to contests from Hanes, JanSport, Tilly’s and more. And in perhaps the most bizarre code use we’ve ever seen, a man from Paris had an EZ code tattooed to his chest, becoming the first ever animated tattoo.
July’s Key Campaigns:
- Frito Lay – Our Promise campaign
- HP – Packaging promotion
- SeaWorld – App Download promotion
- Sharpie – Start Something Now campaign
- Crystal Light – Flavor Over Fizz campaign
Welcome to our first ScanLife post! We have a lot that we plan to cover including tips to using 2D codes, new code projects from around the world, ScanLife feature announcements, and more.
This is a very fast-moving and sometimes misunderstood space, but we will try to make it plain and simple because that’s what makes it so great.
We ask that all of you add your feedback and knowledge for the benefit of the community, but please keep it friendly!
