Maynard, MA, May 26, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Longwood Software, Inc., developers of the RevBase® software-as-a-service (SaaS) marketing asset management (MAM) system (www.revbase.com) and the ForFile® large file transfer service (www.forfile.com), announces that RevBase customers now have new options – including QR Codes and native language zones - for accessing documents managed within RevBase.
QR (“Quick Response”) codes are next generation barcode/optical labels which when scanned with a smartphone are converted into a useful form, such as a URL for a website. QR codes save time and money by linking to digital documents in place of print materials. QR codes now can be linked to individual documents or collections of documents managed within RevBase.
“Our customers tell us they need more targeted, convenient, and economical ways to get product information to their customers,” said Scott Richardson, President and CEO of Longwood Software. “One customer who wanted to use QR codes to link to materials in RevBase now has some exciting options: a QR code can connect to product-specific documentation, a promotion relating to a cross-selling opportunity, or a customer service feature.”
Richardson continued, “Another customer has implemented mobile-enabled, language-specific zones so their users can obtain documents in their native language and have a more positive experience on their public website.”
BBB Industries Saves on Printing
BBB Industries (bbbind.com), a manufacturer and distributor of aftermarket vehicle replacement parts, decided to transition to all-digital document distribution using QR codes in order to cut costs and reduce waste. They now print QR codes on cards inserted in product boxes instead of enclosing printed product literature for their customers. When scanned, the QR codes on the cards link to relevant collections of documents within RevBase. Customers then can view the documents on their device and print the product materials if they wish.
As a result of the conversion to all digital documents, BBB Industries estimates they will reduce paper and printing costs by many thousands of dollars a year.
