Making VCards with QR Codes

by Nate Schubert

VCards are a very popular type of new technology that uses QR Codes with data encoded into MECARD format, allowing smart phone users to scan the QR Code on a business card, for example, for automatic entry into the contacts list on the mobile device. VCards help to increase efficiency by automatically adding pre-set data into mobile phone contacts lists, which saves the user time. Further, an accurately formatted and encoded VCard can minimize user error when manually entering data as a contact.

In some situations, a person may have a need to simultaneously generate multiple QR Codes with VCard data. This can be done using the IDAutomation QR Code Barcode Image Generator in conjunction with a special text file that is correctly formatted to MECard specifications. Our technical support staff has created an excellent video tutorial that demonstrates how to perform this task. Please take the time to check it out below and let us know what you think!
