Trident’s new packaging includes a QR code that links to a demo video.


Ontario, Calif. — Trident Case is rolling out a new packaging program for its rugged mobile device cases that adds a QR code to each box linking to a demonstration video.

“To show just how tough our cases really are, we put a simple QR code on each package that lets shoppers use their phone or tablet right in the store and watch our Tough Test video of that particular model getting battered, bruised and beaten, and coming out unharmed.” said Erin Luzzi, Trident's marketing VP.
