Info-supplying QR codes attached to General Equipment Co. machines

General Equipment Co. now includes QR codes on its surface preparation, hole digging and ventilation equipment. When scanned with a smartphone, the codes direct users to videos, literature, operational tips, service information and manuals. They are printed on weather- and damage-resistant data plates that are securely mounted on each piece of equipment.

The QR codes were implemented to help rental operators and end users find relevant information quickly and easily. Unlike similar systems in the industry, General Equipment’s QR codes link to product-specific websites rather than a generic page. This eliminates the need to browse for desired information after reaching the site.

To take advantage of the QR code, the user must have a smartphone with a standard QR code scanner application installed. This simple application is commonly used and is a free download for many devices.
