We see this a natural convergence of two powerful media tools
Brevard, NC (PRWEB) September 28, 2010
With the growing popularity of QR codes and the mass adoption of social media, JumpScan™ leverages the power of both media tools to instantly connect the offline and online world in one place. JumpScan™ utilizes QR codes to create a "hardlink" from the physical world to the virtual world -- displaying a user's social media feeds and contact information. All that is required is a smart phone, and readily available QR code reader software.
Once a user signs up, and obtains his or her JumpScan™ QR code, they simply display it, and anyone with a smart phone can scan the image. The image links directly to a customized page on JumpScan.com, which displays the user's most feeds from Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. They also have the option of adding contact information.
JumpScan can be thought of as a bar code to a user's personal or business life.
The benefits of JumpScan™ are numerous. Instead of asking for a business card, or typing a phone number into a cell phone, a user can just take a snapshot of a JumpScan™ QR code and get contact information with the click of a button.
Businesses can also use JumpScan™ by signing up and using their JumpScan™ QR code as the one image for all their consolidated social media feeds (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) If a business is closed, a potential customer can just scan the JumpScan™ image on the door or window of the business, and have access to the latest information, phone number, store hours, etc. In this way, it can serve as a silent salesperson.
"We see this a natural convergence of two powerful media tools," states Phil Davis, one of JumpScan's three founders. "For those looking for a convenient way to share and display all their social media in one place, on a mobile friendly platform, this is the way to go."
With a background in branding, social media, and internet commerce, Davis teamed up with Mike McKearin, a web strategist, and Ben Davis, an IT developer. The group plans on adding additional features and feeds in the coming weeks.
