This solution not only allow users to perform various operations remotely and at their own pace, it can also act as a mobile wallet. Users can also access a portfolio of scalable applications for NFC payments, transportation, ticketing and loyalty programs. While NFC technology has been discussed at length for some time now, how can brands use this new technology to connect with customers and their favourite everyday tool?
