Sequent Software, a California-based provider of mobile NFC software, announced the launch of Core Card Services (CCS), a solution designed to enable any mobile app to seamlessly integrate NFC payments, ticketing, coupons, ID badge access and more.
According to Sequent, CCS consists of on-device middleware and support services that “unlock NFC innovation” for app developers, enabling them to incorporate NFC into existing apps such as mobile banking, loyalty, transit or ticketing.
“A killer NFC app should do more than simply replicate a physical wallet on a mobile phone,” said Drew Weinstein, CEO at Sequent. “CCS enables app developers to build new apps with rich NFC experiences and also makes it easy to integrate NFC within apps that consumers already use and trust.”
On the security side, Sequent says its CCS solution protects the physical and digital security of a mobile device’s secure element by creating a trusted software layer between the secure element and mobile apps. CCS also enables only authorized apps access to a consumer’s protected data.
