RFID NFC (Near-field Communication)

Near-field Communication (NFC) is becoming increasingly common among brand owners, retails and consumers alike, being ideal for a myriad of applications, such as brand authentication, product reviews, consumer loyalty programmes and as an ideal medium for gaining further information from a manufacturer or supplier of a particular product or service. Requiring only a smartphone, the NFC platform is becoming increasingly common as a cost-effective medium to communicate with your customers.

We can supply NFC labels or tags in small quantities  – you can be up and running encoding your own tags in minutes! We can also supply highly durable NFC tags suitable for use outdoors.
