Mobile Detection and Delivery of 2D Barcode Readers
Now offering White Label Services!
2DGO gives integrated media advertisers the power to "effectively" engage consumers.
Today, most consumers with smartphones do not have a 2D barcode reader pre-installed on their device. There are hundreds of QR, Data Matrix, and various other 2D barcode readers on the market. There is no reader among them that works on every device and not all work well, even on the device they are developed for. Therein lies the problem.
2DGO gives integrated media advertisers the power to deliver the correct reader to the consumer's phone with a free, automated solution that is supported and updated by mobile professionals at PLUSH Mobile Servers and PRINT2D. 2DGO offers integrated media advertisers a call-to-action in the form of a text (SMS) message and Web address to include with any campaign.
The concept behind 2DGO is simple -
To deliver the best possible 2D Barcode reader(s) to the consumer, so they can successfully scan integrated media ads.
Core requirements for ver1.0:
1.) Provide direct links to free readers,
2.) Authorize only readers that do not force the user to register,
3.) Authorize only readers that meet the standards established by Warbasse Design over the past 30 months of testing.
It should be noted that readers with enhanced features like SMS and VCARD capability are nice, however, the primary objective with ver1.0 of 2DGO is to get the consumer to the mobile web. With that said, there are some very good readers in the mix (19 total). All are free and we are confident 2DGO will help lots of people find a reader that works well for them.
