QR Codes for Manufacturing
Streamline and organize your manufacturing process with QR codes
Whether you're tracking parts during assembly, providing safety reminders, or expediting invoicing, QR codes can streamline your manufacturing business.
We help power direct connections for the world's leading brands
QR codes were first created in the 90s by a Japanese auto company, and they continue to make it easy to track a huge number of components during the manufacturing process.
Link to vital information
Codes can be stamped on walls or machinery to link to safety information where it’s most relevant.
Upgrade your invoices
If you want to get paid as quickly as possible, you should make it as simple as possible. A QR code printed at the top of the invoice can link directly to an online payment processor.
We’ve used Flowcode very successfully for the past two years! Flowcode allows us to not only stand out with our codes, but to also beautifully “brand” them with our company logo and colors.
