About QuiCR

QuiCR was conceived on a train ride when I had to deal with a balky reading light. It dawned on me that the train had Wi-Fi and that it would be very convenient if I could somehow quickly and easily report the issue. It might not solve the issue for me, but hopefully would solve it for the next customer.

Soon after, it dawned on me that this idea had far more reach than I initially thought of. That's when the idea of QuiCR was truly born.

Humans are by nature helpful and generous. But let's face it, there are limits. Whereas one person may be willing to track down the train conductor, report the issue and hope it gets fixed, most of us really don't want to spend more than 30 seconds or so on such a minor issue that we'll forget about the minute we get off the train. Or if it's an issue with a hotel room, we may simply decide it's not worth the trouble to report. But we may also not come back.

Years ago, I coined the phrase "Intelligently Lazy". For me, it meant any rote or repetitive task, or menial task should be as automated as possible and made as simple as possible. This is what QuiCR does.

You'll find several examples of how QuiCR can be used within these pages. Hopefully one of them matches your needs. If not talk to us, we're always open to new areas we can apply QuiCR to. And in fact, we already have a laundry list of future development ideas. Your idea may be on the list and simply needs to be bumped up.
