Business needs

To fit today high-speed rhythm of life better and meet users needs, the company decided to integrate the NFC technologies into its services. In order to make this process faster and easier, the customer charged Noveo team with the development of the unique and innovative NFC library for several platforms: Android, BB, WP8.

This library was meant for the further integration in the customer’s mobile applications and so that it allowed the use of NFC tags, namely: connection to NFC tags and reading data from them.
