To be successful today, brands and retailers need to compete more effectively in a mobile-first, omnichannel world. NFC technology offers a multitude of ways for brands and retailers to develop and strengthen a connection with the consumer at every step throughout their journey – pre-purchase, in-store, and post-purchase.
NFC helps consumers by connecting them to helpful information when and where it’s needed, offering a channel to interact with brands, delivering offers and rewards, providing the simplicity of one-tap payment, and more. For retailers and brands, NFC can lead to revenue growth, better customer experiences, new insights via customer analytics, and deeper, long-lasting relationships with the people who buy and use their products most.

The Contactless Future is Here

Beyond connecting with consumers in new ways, today’s customers want everything simple, fast, and safe. Whether it’s a fear of germs or the security of personal information, NFC-enabled payments systems will play a crucial role in the future of how society purchases goods and services in a post-COVID world.
