Near Field Communications, or NFC, is technology that is embedded into the phone and allows people to exchange information with a simple swipe against a tag. NFC reads information on the tag (like reading a bar code) and then processes or records it. The discussion around NFC these days has been centered around Mobile Payments, but we have explored NFC applications that most mobile technology providers have not - workforce management. We've taken an innovative approach with NFC and built the XP1301 CORE NFC, not for mobile payments, but to help workers keep track of their activity and whereabouts while they are on the job.
By now, you're probably familiar with the XP3300 FORCE, released last February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The FORCE is the Guiness World Record holder for Toughest Phone and also the recipient of PC Magazine's Extreme Performance Award for longest talk time in the cell phone industry.

Last week, we announced the arrival of XPand NFC, an attachment you can put on the back of the XP3300 FORCE's battery cover, enabling the FORCE to have NFC capabilities. Here are some questions that will help you find out if your workforce needs the XPand NFC.
- Do your workers work extra long shifts and their phone battery life can't keep up with?
- Do you wish you had a way to check that your workers are doing their jobs on time?
- Do you want your workers to report back to you in real-time what they are doing?
If you answered yes to these questions, check out the XPand. For more information about this revolutionary product, check out the full press release here.
