Our History

NFC Direct was born out of our sheer excitement at the huge potential and almost limitless opportunities on offer from the thrilling new world of NFC and Contactless technology. Wedded to our geeky giddiness was our serious commitment to help drive the development and adoption of Contactless in the UK and around the world.

It all began with the revolutionary Nokia 6131. This was the very first smartphone to incorporate NFC technology, and it pointed the way to a bright Contactless horizon of thrilling opportunities. By 2006 the specifications for NFC tags and products had been published, but we remained frustrated at the slow progress of Contactless. We were determined to share our love of NFC with as many people as possible, and to help bring Contactless technology into the everyday life of millions of people.

NFC Direct was formally incorporated in 2012, with a mission to spread Contactless far and wide – providing a platform for the growth and expansion of this incredible technology. We understood how important it was to show companies that NFC is secure, that it’s reliable, and – perhaps most importantly – to demonstrate to them how Contactless can become an important, valued and even an indispensable element of their marketing and business processes.

Now that every new smartphone is NFC-enabled and Contactless technology is ever more visible, you might suspect that our initial excitement about the technology had faded. Not a bit! Even today, nothing gives us greater pleasure than pushing the boundaries of Contactless – exploring and innovating, and sharing every new discovery with our lovely customers.

So come and join our expanding Contactless family. It’ll be fun, we promise!
