Barcodes created to speed up data entry consist of lines created with various coding methods. QR Code (QR Code – Quick Response Code) can be specified as a type of barcode, which is also expressed as a two-dimensional barcode and created with dots on a matrix. QR codes are advantageous as they can store more data than barcodes.
QR codes can store the following amounts of data:

  • Numeric up to 7090 characters.
  • Alphanumeric maximum 4291 characters.
  • Maximum 2953 Bytes as binary (8 Bits).

There are different types of barcodes and QR codes that can be used according to needs. According to the symbol types of barcodes, there are types such as Code 11, Code 39 and EAN 13. QR codes have types such as Aztec Code, Data Matrix, Dot Code.
