One step closer to the mobile wallet
The operator Orange, in partnership with the manufacturer Gemalto, decided to offer its customers SIM cards equipped with NFC chips.
Why it matters
Our mobile phone is an extension of ourselves – and we rarely leave home without it. 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?

Swifts are birds facing extinction because they don't have enough places to nest. So to find the largest concentration of Swifts and install new nests there, we decided to use the highly identifiable sound Swifts make to get everyday people to locate the places where there are Swifts in large numbers.
We ran spots that asked listeners to do something simple: Hear the sound. Identify the sound. Tag the sound by texting your location. SMS reports sent in, were fed into a map, making the solution visible and actionable. All that was left to do was install additional nests where needed.
