NFC business cards are taking over the smart business card industry, but what really are they? This blog explores everything you need to know about NFC!
What is NFC?
NFC, or Near Field Communication, is a wireless technology that enables mobile phones to connect with each other. Unlike Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which have ranges up to 100 feet away from your device, NFC only works with an NFC smartphone within close proximity. Most smartphones today are readily equipped with an NFC tag reader.
How do NFC business cards work?
NFC business cards are the latest and greatest way to exchange contact information. They work by using a specialised chip, known as an NFC tag, that allows two NFC-enabled devices to communicate, making exchanging contact information as easy as tapping your phone against someone else’s.
NFC business cards are becoming more and more popular and for a good reason. Re-designing, re-printing, and carrying around lots of paper business is becoming a thing of the past. NFC business cards are a more cost-effective, convenient, and eco-friendly option where all your information can be held and edited limitlessly via an online portal.
The rise in use of NFC for Android and iOS
Near Field Communication has seen rapid growth in previous years (predicted to be valued at $55 million by 2028). The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed the development of the NFC technology market due to the increased demand for contactless solutions. Business cards with NFC technology allow users to share their contact information without the need to share anything physically; a simple tap of the card on a smartphone is all that is necessary.
