CrimShield Uses QR Codes For Contractor Verification

Can scanning a QR code make your life safer? An Arizona-based company, CrimShield, thinks so, and has just launched a new, QR-code based system which lets consumers scan a QR code to verify the identity of contractors, installers, and others. According to CrimShield, its new ValidID product lets anyone scan a QR code on an employee badge, business card, or website with their smartphone, and get employment status and other details on a contractor. The firm says it is looking to help prevent thefts and other forms of crime by offering up the service. Crimshield is based in Mesa, Arizona.
