- You probably only need this product if you deal with printed material (adds, reports, business cards etc).
- The main purpose for this product is to have an easy way of linking to web content from printed material.
- Lets say you are producing "printed data sheets" of products managed in Plone, but want the possibility to let readers "read more", or see the latest price. You can then include the qrcode.
- Lets say you have a (psychical) shop where you want the price tags to include "info about the product": Hide the qrcode with CSS and show it in print.css
- Let say you are producing product labels and you want them to include a link to "how to use this product", where to re-order etc.
