Microsoft has given a notice of two years before it kills its Tag barcode technology on August 19, 2015. It is about to make some plans in order to terminate this facility.
The year 2015 has been set as the future time when the Tag barcode service by Microsoft will meet its doom. However, there is hope since all is not lost. It will continue in a different form under Scanbuy. It’s been three years since Tag was recovered from beta and now it is to be stashed away within the next 730 days. The Tag technology allows anyone to incorporate information into an image. Microsoft was looking forward to floating the facility to commercial enterprises in its capacity as an interactive advertising set up. And the fact was it held potential. Now however there has been a change of plans and it has been handed to Scanbuy. Scanbuy is the biggest provision source of QR codes. It is responsible for running ScanLife.
Sometime in mid-September, Scanlife will begin featuring this technology on its platform. Transition and migration facilities will be lent to the Microsoft clientele. What this means in reality is that campaigns may be carried out without any hitches on the ScanLife platform. The Tag technology runs on Windows Phone, iOS and Android currently. Microsoft is a leader and pioneer in world class technology. It makes changes on a large scale every few days in its set up to keep abreast of the times. The fact that the Tags are being trashed shows that it keeps absorbing what is useful and rejecting what is useless.
