Mack to place QRs on trucks

| March 11, 2013

Mack, QR codesMack Trucks today announced that all new units will feature a unique QR code to speed service response times and improve customer uptime. QR codes, or quick-response codes, are matrix bar codes that supply rapid retrieval of information when a tablet or other mobile device scans the code. Starting in April, Mack will install QR codes on the vehicle’s doorframe during the manufacturing process. When the vehicle arrives at the dealership, service advisors scan the vehicle’s unique code, allowing the service advisor to rapidly access the truck’s VIN, owner information and dealer service history. Likewise, scanning will automatically launch Mack’s service management system powered by MVASIST. Find more about the new addition to Macks via news on our sister publication CCJ‘s website.

    As much as I “dislike” technology,that seems like a good idea. I’m sure the Government will find a way to get in and screw with it until it becomes a BAD idea.

    I don’t see this as being disruptive technology, it looks to me as having many good uses for service techs in identifying the vehicles history without spending time in entering various data to obtain that information. It guarantees that the driver is on the road quicker rather than wait for too long. strives to maintain an open forum for reader opinions. Click here to read our comment policy.
