May 3, 2013 (Boulder, CO) - Tokkers today released its new "talking" audio QR Codes. The unique new web-based service, available by subscription, allows users to easily create talking mobile landing pages, which can also include logos, photos, text, maps, video, and social sharing features. Audio messages can be created using the Tokkers online recorder, by phone, or by uploading audio files. The new QR Codes, called Tokkers, can be placed on printed products, marketing materials, advertising, signage, displays, menus, exhibits and publications. They can be scanned with any smartphone QR Code reader app. The company claims that their QR Codes achieve higher scan rates because they can "talk" and because the content is mobile optimized.
Tokkers believes their service will be useful to a wide variety of businesses, including marketing agencies, real estate professionals, museums and galleries, walking tours, magazine and newspaper publishers, printing companies, restaurants, pharmacies and educators. Tokkers CEO Steve Briggs says there is a real need for businesses to broaden their mobile presence, citing expanding QR Code and smartphone usage world wide. QR Codes are appearing more frequently in all types of media, scan rates are rising, and smartphone adoption has surpassed 50 percent market penetration. People are increasingly accessing content on their mobile devices, and Briggs believes that Tokkers provides the ideal tools to generate both compelling mobile content and the distinctive QR Codes that connect customers to that content.
"When people see our talking QR Codes, it makes them curious to hear the audio message and motivates them to scan," says Briggs, "and when they do, they'll be rewarded with a quality mobile experience." He continued, "We've had great response during our beta period and we're really excited to be opening up Tokkers to the public. We can't wait to see what our customers do with them."
Tokkers is offering their service by paid subscription with a 30 day free trial, and there is also a free plan. The service is available at their website - http://tokkers.com.
