Near Field Communication or NFC is a set of short-range wireless technologies and a default feature that comes with most smartphones today. NFC adapts the concept of MiFare that allows data to be transmitted via radio waves with radio frequency of 13.56MhZ as well as induces electric currents within passive components. On top of phone-to-phone communication, NFC Tags are often used to store information from short texts like web addresses, contact details, bookmarks, geolocations and many more. It is a quick and efficient way to push information into your phone.
As a technology-driven developer for security products and workforce management systems, TimeTec taps on the NFC technology with the use of NFC Tags in replacing the conventional checkpoint devices for guard tour, punch clock or biometric devices for time and attendance clocking. Being committed in our goal to better improve the user experience of our products, we’ve decided to further enhance our NFC Tags by getting it a new skin update.
In TimeTec TA, users can tap on the dedicated tags for their attendance clocking activities on TimeTec TA by using NFC enabled Android smartphones complete with TimeTec TA App. With the latest enhancement, our NFC Tags will now be more prominent thus making it easier to spot for a more efficient and productive workforce clocking.
For TimeTec Patrol, the NFC Tags replace conventional guard tour checkpoints and are readable by NFC-enabled Android smartphones installed with TimeTec Patrol App. Since most checkpoints are placed outdoors and are subjected to harsh environment, this latest design will ensure that the durability of the NFC Tags is guaranteed.
The deployment of NFC tags and smartphones in today’s BYOD or Bring Your Own Device environment gets you to save on the hardware cost for time clocking and it brings convenience to your businesses. What are you waiting for! Get started with TimeTec Smart Solution today by clicking on the link below.
