Unlock the Potential of a Smart Society
The cornerstone of our business is our in-house developed linking tool, "XPAND Code", which coexists with QR codes and addresses their challenges. XPAND Code is an innovative fusion of functionality and aesthetics, boasting an elongated shape and adaptable colour scheme that seamlessly blend with landscapes and object designs. Furthermore, its impressive reading range enables scanning from up to 200 metres away.
The XPAND Code platform offers both free and paid versions, ensuring accessibility and flexibility for users. The paid version provides the added advantage of modifying the URL of the set link at a later stage. Moreover, we have secured a patent for collaboration with NFT technology, demonstrating its strong compatibility with Web3.
To make it easier for users to access XPAND Codes, we also offer installation-free reading apps such as App Clips. Our reading app has been recognised for its exceptional quality, winning the Asia Smart App Awards 2021.
Additionally, we provide technology and design consulting services, drawing on our expertise in merging design and technology, which underpins our technical foundation.
