|3. NFC or Near Field Communication is the latest wave in 2D coding. Instead of scanning a bar code for information, the NFC enabled code is a device that works simply by tapping the card or stationery to your NFC enabled mobile device. Corporate Graphic International or CGI, plans to implement this capability into their line of business cards to create a reusable plastic business card that has QR codes, Microsoft® Tags and NFC built into it. It allows the owner of the card to transfer their contact details and additional rich data to a smart phone simply by holding the card near an NFC enabled phone or by snapping the QR code or Microsoft® Tag with the appropriate reader.
This technology is covered under U.S. Patent No.: 8,166,011.
Strengthen your Customer Relationships by using Personal Landing Pages
Corporate Graphics International can create personal landing pages for each employee using information already stored in their ‘My Account’ section within their online ordering site. A simple check in the checkbox will allow a 2D barcode to be printed on your stationery item and a personal landing page to be created. Personal Landing Pages contains personal information and company information including links to the company website, blogs, news and other key communication points. The page will be designed to follow your brand guidelines and only certain parts of the page can be edited by the employees. Also there are no hosting fees to worry about.
Customers can get to your personal landing page by typing in the URL from your business card or other printed stationery, using a mobile device to scan a 2D barcode or clicking on your interactive signature.
