Skycore LLC’s codeREADr app authenticates NFC transactions embedded in tags, wristbands, FOBs and phones.
First pilot tracks & validates reusable, rechargeable NFC wristbands for secure ticketing and stored value.
Boston, MA (April 30, 2012): Skycore LLC, developers of the commercial barcode and Near Field Communications (NFC) validation app, codeREADr (https://codereadr.com), today announced powering the first pilot where reusable, rewearable NFC-embedded wristbands can be tracked and validated using mobile, NFC-enabled Android devices.
Wristbands embedded with NFC chips are currently used by some festival organizers to improve ticket security. Some multi-use transit cards, like Boston’s CharlieCard, include NFC chips to enable fast, contactless validation. However, in both cases those tickets are typically validated either with stationary hardware or expensive mobile computers.
“Our commercial codeREADr app is the first to enable mobile tracking and validation of both barcodes and NFC targets using Android 4.0 (ICS),” said Rich Eicher, CEO of Skycore LLC. “This year there will be many new NFC-enabled devices introduced well suited for mobile commerce and enterprise applications. One of the more prominent is the new, unlocked and aggressively priced ($399) Samsung Nexus available at Google Play.”
