Nordic Usability Launches NFC RFID JiffyTags Designed for Time-Tracking
Nordic Usability has announced that its Android App Jiffy now works with Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID-enabled JiffyTags. Operating much like a stopwatch, Jiffy is a time-tracking application designed for tracking and accurately reporting work or project time, Nordic Usability explains. The app is available from the Google Play app store. By affixing JiffyTags to various objects contextually relevant to a project—for example, notebooks, folders, or keys—users can activate the Jiffy app by tapping their NFC-enabled smartphones to tagged objects and tracking time in the project linked to each particular tag. JiffyTags can also be shared among colleagues, making them suitable for mounting outside meeting rooms, or at an office entrance. The Jiffy key fobs and stickers are made with NXP Semiconductors' NTAG203 RFID chip, Nordic Usability reports, and are designed to work with as many phones as possible, by using the widely accepted standard NTAG203. "We have identified that the most difficult thing about time tracking is that it is so easy to forget," said Lorica Claesson, Nordic Usability's user experience designer and founder, in a prepared statement. "JiffyTags help our users remember by working both as a visual queue, as well as a trigger to start tracking your project." Unlike with most NFC tags, the company explains, JiffyTags are already prepared and will be recognized by the Jiffy app. When first held to the back of a phone, Jiffy asks which project it should be linked to, and the association is made within the app, the company says. Within the app, projects can be distinguished by different colors, which are represented on the JiffyTags to enable visual identification as well. Available now, the key fobs come with elastic bands and changeable color labels, and the stickers have the Jiffy symbol printed on top. The JiffyTags are sold online on Jiffy website, at a cost of €10 ($13.83) for three key fobs or five stickers.
