NEW YORK, July 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

             ScanLife, the leading provider of platform solutions for mobile
             barcodes, indicates continued strong quarterly growth, with
             second-quarter mobile-barcode scans surpassing 16 million,
             representing a 35-percent increase from the first quarter of
    What:    2012.

             The ScanLife app has surpassed 20 million downloads, with June
             producing the highest-ever number of scans for a single month.
             ScanLife also saw its first-ever customer campaign to register
             more than one million scans from a QR Code, taking just over six
             weeks to reach the milestone and tripling the previous single-
             campaign record. The campaign provided consumers with branded
             content, demonstrating that offer- or coupon-based QR Code
    Why:     campaigns are not required to drive strong consumer engagement.

             "This rate of growth in scans and downloads reflects a technology
             that has clearly moved beyond the early?adopter stage and has gone
             mainstream," said Mike Wehrs, CEO and president of Scanbuy. "It
             also reinforces findings from industry analysts such as
             Econsultancy that QR Codes are a more popular tool to engage
             consumers than mobile email, SMS and location."
