Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of short-range wireless technologies, typically requiring a distance of 4cm or less to initiate a connection. NFC allows you to share small payloads of data between an NFC tag and an Android-powered device.

As you can see below, NFC tags have a small circuit behind them which will react to metallic surfaces.

So we want to Stick them ideally on an NON-METALLIC Surface, similar to the below locations. Ideally, the Entry Glass Door will be the most suitable location.

While we know this isn't always possible, the logic is that we also surface the Site and Security Information about this location to the Employee only once they Check-In to site. So if the Tag in INSIDE the building this features doesn't work.



Ferrite Backed Tags for Metal Surfaces

In instances when adhesion onto non-metallic surfaces isn't possible, we do have Special Ferrite Backed freshOps Tags available by special order. If you do require these please email support@freshops.com.au

We still suggest looking for a location external to the premises for the special tags also.

Custom Branded Tags

All our Custom Tags automatically come with a Ferrite Backing and can be placed on any suitable surface that enables solid adhesion.

If you would like to know more about custom branded tags please email support@freshops.com.au

We still suggest looking for a location external to the premises for the custom branded tags also.
