Understanding the Function of a Digital Link Resolver: 2D Barcodes

Discover what a Resolver is and how it enhances the functionality of 2D Barcodes.


A Resolver serves as a conduit for a diverse array of product information to surface when a 2D Barcode is scanned. When it comes to 2D Barcodes, you have two options:

1. Without a Resolver: Absent a Resolver, a 2D Barcode leads solely to a designated webpage via its URL, limiting users to a singular source of information.

2. With a Resolver: By integrating a Resolver service, the 2D Barcode becomes a gateway to varied information sources. It facilitates seamless transitions between different scans of the same barcode, offering access to a spectrum of data, including recipe suggestions, product specifics, store locations, and multilingual content.


Let's explore some real-world scenarios:

• Teresa, a sustainability-conscious fashion label owner, seeks to enlighten her customers about her clothing's origins and environmental impact.

• Mark, grappling with prescription instructions, relies on scanning the 2D Barcode for guidance.

• Isabel, in Argentina, accesses Spanish language instructions for her UK manufactured watch via a simple scan.

• Lana, a retail worker, swiftly retrieves pricing details by scanning products at the point of sale.

With a quick scan, individuals obtain the information they need. Consumers effortlessly scan a 2D Barcode containing a Digital Link, gaining access to comprehensive product details directly from the manufacturer.

Link Types, configured on a Resolver Platform, enable diverse scans of the same 2D Barcode to lead to distinct destinations, enriching the user experience and facilitating seamless information access.
