Ticketfriend launches end-to-end contactless ticketing system
A young sales technology company has launched a new ticketing solution allowing users to buy and redeem tickets through a tap of their smartphone.
Dublin, Ireland-based ticketfriend, a ticket sales and event promotion company, has since 2009 provided a space for users to buy, sell and promote tickets to events through their Web site. With the refinement of near field communications (NFC) technology over the years, the company has made a decision to move into mobile contactless ticketing, and it has just launched a new app specifically for use with Google’s Android operating system. NFC allows users to tap their smartphones to another device to make a purchase or exchange information.
