Loyalty Pro offers a contactless option as an alternative to magnetic swipe and barcode cards.
The proximity chip can be attached or embedded to almost anything, paper, wristbands, key fobs, golf bag tags, clothing or even jewellery to name a few!
The system uses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, which enables two electronic devices to establish communication by bringing them within 4cm of each other, creating electromagnetic induction between two loop antennas.
Each of our tablets has an attached NFC reader which will enable the system to read the unique card number and send the transaction to our Loyalty Pro database straight away.
One of the main advantages of using contactless loyalty is the ability to attach it to almost anything allowing the use of anything from paper to jewellery and therefore saving the need to carry a physical card.
The NFC chips have capacity to hold additional information alongside the unique card number, which is beneficial when working offline. The data written on the chip can be encrypted.
Unlike bar and QR code reading, contactless chips do not require good lighting conditions allowing them to be used in various situations.
Additional features such as key fobs are hardwearing and waterproof and can outlast barcode equivalents.
