Who is Mobile Near Field Communication (NFC) for?
We offer NFC solutions to
mobile network operators (MNOs), banks, transport operators and retailers who intend to deploy mobile NFC services.
Benefits for end-users
NFC brings a new dimension to mobile commerce by revolutionizing the consumer shopping experience. For example, it allows them to make mobile payments simply by waving their phone at a payment terminal.
All existing plastic card and coupon details are stored in a virtual NFC wallet on the end-user's mobile. They can then pay, collect loyalty points and redeem coupons by simply waving their phones near point-of-sales terminals.
Benefits for financial institutions
Financial institutions intend to use NFC payment to replace cash, which in 2010 still represented a huge number of payment transactions made globall.
In addition, they view NFC as a new way to:
• Enhance their relationship with their customers
• Drive the use of mobile services such as mobile banking and money transfers
What’s in Our Offer?
There are many exciting applications for mobile NFC that will make consumers' lives easier.
For example, end-users could download a
mobile ticketing application to their phone, allowing them to buy transport tickets on the move.
Once purchased, the ticket is downloaded directly to the secure element of the phone. It can then be used by waving the phone over the reader on the bus or train.
Searching for ticket vending machines and queuing at rush hour will be a thing of the past.
