Flowfinity Adds NFC Technology to Its Software for Faster Asset Scanning

Flowfinity Wireless Inc. today announced new features for its enterprise mobile application software that improve management of tagged assets in real-time. Flowfinity's latest software update leverages NFC (Near Field Communication) technology on Android for rapid tag scanning, enabling digital information to be captured and stored faster.

Using Flowfinity point-and-click software, IT professionals and operations department staff can now create custom mobile forms and applications that support NFC technology for quickly scanning NFC objects in the field. NFC tags are a faster way to scan items than using smartphone camera-based barcode scanning software, as NFC only involves a single tap rather than a slower camera-based scan that requires image focusing. Android devices with built-in NFC technology also eliminate the need of purchasing additional custom scanning hardware. Now, business applications created with Flowfinity enable field staff that use Android devices with a built-in NFC scanner to gather accurate information, quickly and with less effort.

For organizations with a barcode system already in place, Flowfinity offers a combined barcode and NFC feature so NFC can serve as an improved alternative or in addition to barcodes for easy transition.

"We're excited to support NFC for Android devices so organizations can track field assets faster and more conveniently," said Larry Wilson, VP of Sales and Marketing, Flowfinity. "This allows management to make quicker, informed decisions by having a live view of business assets directly on their smartphones."
