About Us

We're an electrician and a coder who set out to make an intuitive, useful app for our local business community.

The idea for VividQR started when we were talking to friends at the farmers market. We met entrepreneurs with great products and websites, struggling to get customers onto their websites for refills and upsells, and not sure which upcoming location would be most convenient for their customers.

This gap between analytics and printed media/product packaging is the one we seek to bridge with VividQR. This is something that big companies have been doing for years, but we want to bring the power of this technology to everyone, in an affordable and easy to use platform.
