This is technology you are going to be hearing more and more about in the coming months/years therefore we thought our latest blog could give you a little more information about the technology and what it can do for you and your business.
Near Field Communication (NFC), is a form of contactless communication between devices like smartphones and tablets. Contactless communication allows a user to wave their smartphone over a NFC compatible device to send information without needing to touch the devices together or go through the hassle of setting up a connection (as you would with a Bluetooth connection and PIN).
Businesses can really benefit from Near Field Communication as it allows your business to provide fast, secure ways for customers to pay without digging through their wallets for various credit cards. It also lets customers store coupons and redeem customer loyalty points without carrying around extra papers, cards and other items that add to the daily clutter we all carry around.
NFC can also offer ways to send information to customers using smart posters and displays with a NFC tag inside. A user can swipe their phone to learn more about your products, services and special offers.
By integrating credit cards, train tickets, and paper vouchers all into one device, a customer can board a train, pay for groceries, redeem coupons and even exchange contact information all with the wave of a smartphone. Faster transaction times mean less waiting in line for all of us!!
