The Real® Platform

One click unlocks a new product experience

Create a portal with your packaging that amplifies your entire digital presence

Packaging lives at the intersection of purchase decision and product ownership. There is no other channel that can guarantee the reach of every single customer. And yet, too many brands miss the opportunity to connect with customers via their packaging. 

It is time to remove the burden of consumers needing to reach for complementary digital content and hand-deliver it instead. With QR codes, brands have the opportunity to use this important point-of-purchase moment to connect the most qualified prospects to digital brand value.

In a world where people are always living in both physical and digital realities, shouldn’t your brand create product experiences that do the same?

Give your customers a better product experience.

Real® Product Codes

Is your brand using QR codes to their maximum potential?

Think outside the box and create a better brand experience.

The implications of COVID-19 changed the game for QR codes, making them a commodity near every consumer can act on. With these changed times comes opportunities far greater than the old-school applications of QR codes that drive to a single webpage.

Real Codes give consumers a richer product experience by providing information and context that has the power to not influence the purchase decision, but also support and serve your customer throughout product ownership.

Real® Brand Dashboard

A better B2B customer experience, too

We combine our easy-to-use technology with, you guessed it, Real human support

The Real Brand Dashboard is a cloud-based content management solution that enables brands to create, manage and measure both QR codes and the corresponding content. Create, edit and publish content for both product code experiences and your company profile in real time. Access valuable last-mile customer engagement metrics. All from a single, made-for-marketers interface.

We like to keep our business personal, too. Which is why we provide initial and ongoing strategy and tech support with real humans. Your success is our success.
