Guide to using QR Codes
Why use a QR Code?
ENGIE offers an enriched experience to reading documents by enabling you to access additional online information via your mobile phone or tablet. This additional information may include web pages, videos, forms, the possibility to dial a phone number directly, etc.
Matrix barcodes like the one opposite are optical codes that provide your mobile phone or tablet with one-click access to online content to enrich your reading.
Using a QR Code
To read the code you need a compatible phone or tablet and a dedicated application.
Is your phone or tablet compatible?
Any mobile phone can read QR Codes providing it has:
• a camera
• software (an application) for reading QR Codes, either preinstalled or downloaded (see below).
• an active internet connection (to access online content).
We recommend reading the information for each publisher by going directly to their sites.

Code-reading time can sometimes be unusually long due to many factors, the main one being the quality of data transmission coverage.
