The benefits of this latest technology for brand owner, retailers and consumers are obvious. Fast inventory check with longer range helps brand owners for reducing their time and money. Moreover, the possible integration of data capturing when interacting with the NFC Vicinity tag allows real-time, back-end data visualization for convenient and data driven decision making of the management, supply chain manager and brand protection manager.
NFC Vicinity also offers easy cloud connectivity via NFC enabled smartphones to support convenient consumer engagement that allows consumers acquire the product information, sign up for coupons or join the lucky draw.
