Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that triggers data exchange in NFC enabled devices. This could mean initiating an action, such as sending information from a cellphone to a POS terminal, or connecting to a URL from a name tag or business card. NFC tags can be attached, embedded, sewn, glued, embroidered and even ironed on or otherwise affixed to just about any product, including print materials, packaging and even wearable’s, to extend messaging and communication.
NFC is a subcategory of radio-frequency identification technology (known as RFID) designed with a shorter communication range, which provides a more secure one-to-one data exchange based on a global, uniform standard. This technology can be used for product identification and authentication, consumer engagement and chain of custody tracking. Think of NFC as RFID version 2.0 because it does not need any equipment or installation, it is a simple and effective way to make items smart and connectable. It’s simple, mobile, flexible, versatile, durable, economical, hide-able and best of all… universal. NFC technology is powerful because it’s compatible with just about every smartphone or tablet and is currently used by hundreds of companies and industries around the globe.
