The CNECT Platform
A powerful cloud-based platform for NFC mobile marketing
Versatile software that empowers brands to engage consumers and deliver impactful mobile experiences through the tap of a smartphone.
Thinfilm’s CNECT Platform allows companies and brands to engage consumers with timely and contextual content through the simple tap of a smartphone. This opt-in, high-intent interaction facilitates the instant and direct connection between consumers and products, effectively bridging the gap between the physical and digital worlds.
Brands, agencies, and companies use the CNECT Platform to:
Make physical products ‘smart’ and connect them to the digital world
Tapping intelligent products with a smartphone facilitates a direct connection between brands and customers, effectively removing intermediary search engines, social platforms and online marketplaces from the conversation.
Deliver compelling and targeted mobile marketing campaigns
Create, launch and dynamically manage consumer-focused content and experiences based on tap sequence, time, and geographic location.
Analyze tap activity and related data to gain meaningful consumer insights
Understanding who tapped, what they tapped, when they tapped, where they tapped – and their subsequent actions – provides critical consumer insight to improve KPIs and drive business success.
