While NFC-enabled Android smartphones and tablets can read NFC/RFID wristbands, they tend to be slow readers and generally require a careful placement to the target.
We were pleased to see that Famoco’s FX100+ device has significantly improved the reading speed and broadened the sweet spot. Their purpose-built NFC reader runs Android OS 4.4 (KitKat) and can be deployed in the field as a handheld or mounted device. Our CodeREADr app installed from Google Play can also quickly and accurately scan barcodes. TheFX100+ includes a built-in MDM solution to remotely control applications and devices from their centralized Over-The-Air (OTA) device management service.
Our ticketing clients were the first to use this device for validating wristbands at festivals. Here is more information about our ticket scanning app. We are now also working with our institutional and enterprise clients to help them track attendance and assets globally. Visit our solutions pages to learn more about attendance tracking and asset tracking.
