QR Codes were primarily developed in 1994 by Japanese automaker Toyota to track vehicles during car manufacturing.



Barcodes were used for inventory management prior to QR Code inventory systems. Barcodes are one-dimensional, which means they can only hold information in the horizontal dimension. Inventory management these days has far surpassed what was required in the 90s—and therefore barcodes don’t suffice anymore. 



Before any of these technologies existed, cashiers and administrators tracked inventory manually, which was extremely slow and inefficient.



While barcodes were used extensively for inventory tracking purposes, they were still inefficient for mass product inventory management since they do not have the ability to store large data and lacks flexibility. 



With complex global manufacturing and logistics systems, QR Codes for inventory provided the capability to hold more comprehensive information for these systems to function properly.



Thus, a QR Code inventory management was developed for effective and easy inventory tracking and management.
