The next generation of the ISO card: acoustic cards as an alternative to NFC increase the security level of mobile payment applications

The next generation of payment cards provides a range of new functionalities by integrating electronic components into the ISO Format. There are fingerprint cards without a battery, with flexible PCB card designs, e-paper displays with Dot-matrix, and batteries that recharge via NFC. Technically, these are all viable options, as Yiwen Jin, B-Id explains. With partners, the company is working simultaneously on several innovative developments and projects. Acoustic cards, the next evolution of payment cards, are already in the starting blocks. The card interacts with the smartphone using an integrated speaker and microphone and offers - as an alternative to NFC - the high-security communication feature of a smart card for mobile payment applications.

Early RFID Adopters Have Learned the Lesson: The Right RFID Solution Leads to Faster Inventory Turnover, Higher Margins and Increased Profitability

“Today, there is no question whether RFID should be used in the apparel industry. Based on the experience of early RFID adopters, every retailer can benefit from the right RFID solution optimized for their operation,” says Francisco Melo, Vice President of Global RFID for Avery Dennison. But how can a retailer evaluate which solutions will actually optimize existing processes? And does investment in RFID implementation really pay off, and if so, when?

White Paper

In recent years, omnichannel has been touted as one of the most promising new business marketing strate-gies worldwide… and there is a very good reason for this. The omnichannel approach offers significant op-portunities to increase profits and brand loyalty by creating a seamless, integrated, customer-centric experi-ence at every consumer touch point across all channels, both real and virtual. Omnichannel helps realize the increased customer satisfaction that results from placing the customer at the center of your business. This allows you to respond to their needs promptly and appropriately, creating a deeper, richer experience for the customer.

The true power of omnichannel is the ability to collect data that provides valuable insight into buying habits and preferences, offering a priceless opportunity to differentiate and personalize marketing to the consumer. By leveraging this rich data, a retailer can create a complete, 360-degree profile of each customer based on purchase history, shopping behavior, preferences and demographics, providing the keys that unlock today’s retail marketing success.

eTicket technology brings more than just a switch from paper tickets to smart cards, with new developments bringing both challenges and benefits for the future

VDV eTicket Service is the operator of the VDV core application, which is now the standard platform used for eTicketing in Germany, benefiting millions of people mainly in urban areas. It sees itself primarily as the system developer, rather than administrator, and has new initiatives planned to allow for use of NFC smartphones, increased safety management and international standardisation. ‘RFID im Blick’ talked with Niels-Zeino Mahmalat, Managing Director at VDV eTicket Service, on the challenges and future for eTicketing systems.

Standards are a Key Support to Industry 4.0

For almost a decade, RFID standardisation within the German automotive industry has been shaped by the ongoing and intense debate about two alternative standards: ISO / IEC or GS1. In Q1 2015, the AIDC project group of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) brought forward a key decision, expressing a clear recommendation for the implementation of ISO / IEC standards. The cross-application RFID recommendation VDA 5500 and the application-specific industry recommendations VDA 5501 (container), VDA 5509 (prototypes), VDA 5510 (serial parts) and VDA 5520 (vehicles) will be amended accordingly. As a result, ISO / IEC standards have prevailed in the core logistics processes of the cross-enterprise supply chain in the automotive industry.
