The solution combines Near Field Communication (NFC) and QR code technologies to make the process fast and app-free. Several restaurants have already deployed the systems in order to meet the needs or reopening. The company is using NFC tags from HID Global, due to HID's ability to quickly provide the NFC technology in large volume.
