If there are two things every person needs on planet Earth, they're connectivity and genuine connections. You might be wondering what NFC is, or how it works. Well don't worry! You'll find all your answers in this article. NFC, or Near-Field Communication was invented to allow contactless data transfer between two devices - usually a phone and an NFC tag. For this to work all you need are one transmitting device like a smart business card or credit card, and another device receiving them as soon as they're tapped against the receiver in this case, a smartphone. Unlike Bluetooth which requires pairing before use (and time wasted waiting), simply tap any smartphone on your Tappett Business Card with NFC Technology today to share all your profile information instantly.
