The Quick Response code was first designed in the 90’s for the automotive industry in Japan – barcode that is a machine-readable optical label containing information about the item to which it is attached. Since then, QR codes became popular also outside the automotive industry, and used in applications to include product tracking, item identification, time tracking, document management, and general marketing.

Available in SAP Business One 10.0 PL02 and SAP Business One 10.0, version for SAP HANA PL02.
