Delivering on their promise to accelerate the adoption of Contactless technology, ViVOtech will host a live demonstration of its end-to-end NFC payment solution at the National Retail Federation Show in New York City. The ViVOnfc is designed to enable secure transactions with mobile devices. This demonstration was part of the recently announced NFC pilot program at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
ViVOtech's live NFC Contactless demonstration includes:
-- Four NFC-enabled mobile phones pre-loaded with ViVOwallet software as well as various credit cards will be making Contactless transactions at ViVOpay readers attached to point of sale systems located throughout the booth. Attendees viewing the phones will be able to see what a "soft card" image looks like in the phone's display window after being delivered through an over-the-air (OTA) provisioning infrastructure.
-- The NFC enabled phones will regularly download various types of content from "smart posters" with RFID tags embedded into them. Attendees will be able to view this content on the phone display screen
About the ViVOnfc solution:
The solution includes:
-- ViVOwallet software which allows consumers secure access to soft cards directly on their NFC mobile phone screen and an over-the-air (OTA) provisioning infrastructure which securely downloads credit, debit, prepaid, loyalty and gift cards.
-- A Midlet software package that provides secure communications between the NFC phone and the growing number of merchant locations equipped to accept Contactless payments.
-- ViVOpay 4000 Contactless readers which are designed to provide easy, convenient, and safe transactions in limited space counter environments such as movie theatres, ticket booths, quick service restaurants (QSR), car rental facilities, retail outlets and hospitality areas.
