    Spanish Hotel Provides Information to Guests via NFC 


    The Aimia Hotel in the resort of Port de Sóller, Mallorca, is using NFC to provide information on local services to guests via a tap of a mobile phone.

    A printed panel containing NFC tags, designed and managed by NFC and social media solutions provider GeoCrono, has been placed in the hotel’s reception area. Guests can tap to access information about public transport, places to visit and weather forecasts as well as downloadable maps, the hotel’s Wi-Fi password and its restaurant menu.

    The panel is expected to reduce “cost and unnecessary queues at reception”, GeoCrono says, and “enhance the guest experience.” The panel also includes QR codes for guests without NFC phones.

    Japanese Library Uses NFC Tags for Information Search 

    Japanese-library-NFC-tags-rfid-blogNowadays, although NFC is known to more people, it is mainly used for mobile payments or pairing of Bluetooth speakers. Recently a Japanese library has put this new technology into an old field.

    The library has implemented NFC tags in its bookshelves, allowing users to get more information with their NFC-enabled phones before they borrow their books.

    These tags are from Fujitsu, allowing users to get information about writers and books, etc., as well as reserve the books they want to borrow or review the books they’ve read.

    So far, the library has implemented 100 NFC tags but they intend to put more into use. Fujitsu also plans to expand their information system to 500 libraries in Japan.
