Thinfilm and Prime Vision will leverage Thinfilm’s NFC tags – both SpeedTap and OpenSense – in helping address key postal- and logistics-related needs. Applications will initially target increased mail/parcel security, enhanced e-commerce functionality and improved consumer communication.
Each SpeedTap and OpenSense tag is uniquely identifiable and virtually impossible to clone, and can be read with the simple tap of an NFC-enabled smartphone or device. Once tapped, tags wirelessly communicate with the cloud.
“For postal and parcel delivery services, providing confirmation to customers that a package has not been tampered with during transport can be a game changer. But that capability is essentially non-existent in the industry today,” said Eddy Thans, CEO of Prime Vision. “With Thinfilm’s NFC technology, our postal and logistics customers will soon be able to track the exact route of delivery and instantly confirm – with the simple tap of a smartphone – that their package has not been opened.”
“In working closely with Prime Vision, we are very excited to deliver innovative NFC solutions that help postal and logistics providers provide an even more compelling experience to their customers,” said Davor Sutija, CEO of Thinfilm.
