After many years of anticipation, NFC mobile technology is finally reaching the US retail market. Companies like Google, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and WHERE are leading the charge for making purchases with mobile phones at retail stores. Consumers will be able to just tap their phone to pay with cash or credit card, redeem coupons, or add points to loyalty programs.
Come hear how Boston companies are taking a leading role in this important technological shift. We’ll also be announcing the new NFC Cluster Boston.
