In recent years the use of NFC technology has been stagnant and focused solely around the in-store payment method using GPay and ApplePay. Many industries are only just starting to adopt outdated technology and means of expressing information through the QR code. Similar to a barcode, the QR code does not require touch and is also fast in its access, such does a NFC tag, the only requirement being a capable phone. However, NFC’s capabilities are broad and extend far beyond single-use applications and simple website links, images, and text.
In this day and age, it is unlikely to find a phone made after 2016 that does not support NFC functions. And with the newer models, an app isn’t required either, just unlock and tap. With this in mind NFC tags become incredibly accessible to consumers in many capacities, whether they are connecting or discovering. Unlike a QR code, the user does not require to use a camera, which provides a unique opportunity in low light settings. As well as being camera free, NFC tags are customisable and reusable, as opposed to the unique code and design of a QR code.
With the growth of free-wifi connectivity in businesses, events, and even personal home wifi, the question on everyone’s mind is “What’s the wifi password?”. Currently, the solution to this question is a written password or having a password-free wifi connection, and with this can cause security issues. But, with Neuroe’s NFC a business, home, or event can have one-tap access towards their connectivity for all patrons.

Where this be access to a business card, menu’s, feedback forms, navigation, app downloads, or even repacing a paper process, anywhere there is data and information to be transferred and shared NFC is only one tap away.
