It is also providing companies and individuals with another way to go paperless.
TagMyDoc has launched its tool based on QR codes that allows individuals to save paper and time when sharing documents, with integration with well known services and software such as Office, Dropbox, and Box.
The uses for this type of opportunity are virtually endless, but right now trade shows are seeing the appeal.
The QR codes are used to help to share folders full of information without having to print and carry actual papers or having to exchange email addresses and then remember to send the information later on. It gives the smartphone and tablet user the ability to scan the barcode in order to instantly obtain the copies that would otherwise need to be printed out.
The concept behind TagMyDoc is to use QR codes for sharing documents, presentations, and other information.
The way that the QR codes function is that they are added to a document file, a presentation, or another type of digital file. This tags the file with its own unique barcode and uploads it into the cloud storage provided by that company. There, it becomes a type of on-demand file, which allows anyone who has scanned the black and white square – using any free scanner app – to immediately obtain a copy.
This replaces the need for information packets, slide deck copies of presentations, product information, and virtually any other form of document. Scanning the QR codes is all that is needed to download a copy of the file into the mobile device used to scan.
The goal of this service is to save both time and paper. The service can be tagged within Office programs, becoming an add-in for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Moreover, its latest version will now integrate with Dropbox and Box, so that the accounts can be linked to the tool and documents can be tagged and automatically stored in those accounts.
Though free basic accounts provide storage for 100 QR code linked documents, anything more than that will require the individual or business to have to use the paid version of the service.
