By combining 2D symbol technology, XML syntax for data description and Web Services communication channels, it may be possible to lower the cost of processing and reduce data redundancy inherent in many data processing systems. Having an on-demand access to the information by way of Web Services will provide a way to reduce the amount of the data being stored between trading partners. This paper investigates the use of 2-D bar codes to import data directly into a trading partners receiving computer system. The research investigates directly importing the data via 2-D bar codes, as well as their utilization to automatically gain access to Web services. In the latter case, all needed connection information can be contained inside a separate 2-D symbol allowing an automatic connection to an external data repository.
