It's Hip to Be Square
They're called QR (or "Quick Response") codes. QR codes
are two-dimensional bar codes that can be read with a
smartphone or other device with a camera and QR reader
application installed. When you scan a QR code, you'll be
taken to a web page, document, video, or other information.
How is CSCPA Using QR Codes?
CSCPA will be adding QR codes to many of our publications
and displays. When you scan a QR code in Connecticut
CPA or on a promotional piece, you'll be able to quickly
access supplemental information like applications, registra-
tion forms, and reference guides.
We'll have QR codes on our displays at high school and col-
lege career fairs so this tech-savvy audience will be able to
instantly access up-to-date information, videos, and CSCPA
Pledge applications without having to type in a web address.
