No, I am not talking about booking a flight or boarding a flight this time round…but close enough. With the use of QR Code, did you know that you can cut your time, effort and money by a whole chunk…just from using your mobile phone to scan mobile codes and surf through mobile websites? The process of shopping for, booking, checking in and out of a hotel will be reduced down to one simple process….mobile phones. Thanks to the QR Code technology, the need for keys and cards to get in and out of hotel rooms would be a thing of the past.
Imagine if you wanted to book a hotel in a foreign city where language is a problem, how would you go about doing it? Yes, you’d go online and start researching on the price and the kind of service they provide. After booking a room online and providing relevant persona information, likely to be mobile phone number and email address, the room is yours. The link between the online hotel room booking and QR Code is here….the mobile phone number, without which, the hotel would be unable to get in touch with you, you see. So, an SMS is sent to your mobile phone, confirming and thanking you for your business.
What’s different, I presume, is that in the SMS, the hotel marketing team can include a mobile website that you can browse through to find nearby tourist attractions, diners, night spots, shopping malls, etc. Does it matter whether Sam is using an iPhone or a Blackberry? Absolutely not because the website has been designed in such a way that it will display content suitable for the phone. Cool, isn’t it? If the mobile page is designed properly, it would also load much faster than it normally would on a laptop or personal computer. In the website, there is information like videos, images, and telephone numbers to the hotel’s facilities and nearby attractions…PLUS, you can also download brochures, guides and discount coupons. To use the coupons, all you have to do is to download QR codes and flash it when you’re there.
With a downloaded QR Code, you will also use the QR Code as a key to your own room! So, unless you lose your phone during the trip, you won’t have trouble getting in and out of your hotel room and no extra stuff to remember picking up too. Now, tell me that isn’t what convenience is all about!
And the possibility doesn’t end there either because the sky is the limit, as far as QR Codes is concerned. Imagine if you could get location to spots you want to visit, book a car, check bus or train schedules, find friends who are in the same place as you are, find song list or programs showing in a night spot before heading over, etc.
With QR Code, headaches often associated with traveling can be easily removed….except for packing and unpacking, of course.
