NFC Tags

What are NFC tags?

NFC tags are small devices that can store and send information to mobile phones in short range. An NFC tag can be attached in- or outdoors on stationary or moving objects, turning them into interactive ones. A single tap onto the NFC tag with a mobile phone presents the content. This way you can focus on creating content for specific zones and products. NFC tags come in a variety of shapes and sizes, they can be integrated into a poster at a bus stop, fixed into a digital signage in a shopping mall or even as printable packaging in supermarket items.
