GHS Labelling – Our NEW QR Code Feature for Label Enterprise

Wouldn’t it be good if someone could point their smart-phone or tablet at one of your labels and immediately see the associated SDS right there on their mobile device?  With the new QR Code feature on our GHS labelling software, you can do just that!

GHS labelling software - label with QR Code

Label Enterprise is our one-stop shop solution for producing quality hazard warning labels. It fully supports the new GHS /CLP formats and is designed to work with any standard Windows™ compatible printer to quickly and simply produce labels for carriage, supply, janitorial and many other functions.

We are now pleased to introduce our new QR Code feature.

What is a QR code?

A QR Code (Quick Response Code) is a type of two-dimensional barcode that can be read by smartphones and tablets. The codes can link directly to text, websites, phone numbers, email addresses, social media and much more. QR Codes are different to standard vertical reading barcodes in that the data is stored in both directions which means that they can be scanned vertically OR horizontally. You can quickly and easily create your own QR codes with a free QR Code Generator.

GHS LABELLING & the benefits of QR codes

If your SDS’s are available online, then just by adding the appropriate web-link as a QR code on your label, your customers (or anyone else coming into contact with your labels) could immediately have access to many types of valuabe information that’s NOT printed on the label.

You could use QR codes for:

  • Emergency response instructions – who to contact and/or what to do in the event of spillage etc. (does not replace any statutory obligations to include this type of information directly on the label).
  • Product marketing – how and where to obtain your product.
  • Re-Ordering and/or ordering for companion products.
  • Information on classifications and chemical properties.
  • Directions for use (of your product).

All these things, and more, are now possible with the new QR Code module available for HibSoft Label Enterprise.
