Near Field Communications (NFC) is an exciting new technology set to change the face of business and open up a world of possibilities across multiple sectors. As always, when there’s an advance in technology, Scotcomms can be found leading the way.
NFC uses the same communications technology as that of contactless smart cards, a specific area in which Scotcomms has a wealth of experience and demonstrated expertise. This means that smart cards can be replaced with, or supplemented by, a simple application on an NFC enabled phone or tablet. Customers can leave smart cards – and even credit cards – at home and businesses expand exponentially the opportunity to capture vast new customer bases through previously unavailable channels
NFC allows for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other. It is expected to become a widely used system for making payments by smartphone or tablet device. Many smartphones currently on the market contain embedded NFC chips that can send encrypted data a short distance (“near field”) to a reader
NFC will see applications in multiple sectors including sales, marketing, promotions, payment, transport, tourism, retail, events, and social networking.
