ScanLife Sees Fifty Percent Growth In QR Code and UPC Scanning Over Black Friday

Sunday, November 25, 2012 3:27 PM






ScanLife, the leader in Mobile Engagement Platforms, has released its Black Friday 2012 mobile barcode scanning results. The company reports over a quarter of a million scans on Black Friday, the busiest day to date for mobile barcode traffic. In addition to continued 2D (QR) barcode adoption among marketers and media publishers, Q3 2012 proved to be a big period for attracting new users with almost 4 million new people scanning from the ScanLife app representing a 45% percent increase over the same period in 2011.




During today's Black Friday shopping extravaganza, mobile barcode scans increased 50 percent the daily average to help make informed buying decisions. The ScanLife Mobile Engagement Platform processes scans from QR Codes on thousands of ads, products, and store displays, plus from UPC codes found on all products.

  • A quarter million scans were processed through the ScanLife system between 7 p.m. ET on Thanksgiving Day to 7 p.m. ET on Black Friday
  • The single best QR code marketing campaign powered by the ScanLife system delivered a promotional rebate offer for a popular DVD title
  • Among marketers using the ScanLife platform, the consumer electronics and retail industries saw the most scans on Black Friday

The data in this report was pulled from the ScanLife Mobile Engagement Platform. It represents traffic from both two dimensional barcodes (i.e. QR Codes) and UPC barcodes. The 2D barcodes scanned may have been generated on the ScanLife Platform, or from 3rd party generators. The 2D barcode scanning traffic may come from either the ScanLife app or 3rd party apps.

ScanLife recently launched new versions of its ScanLife mobile barcode application for Android and iOS users. The new versions of the app make it easier for users to discover the best QR codes and products via Facebook. In light of the holiday season, ScanLife is running a "Like It to Win" holiday giveaway. Participants can join in the social spirit in a few simple steps:
