TapBoards are the easiest way to discover information. Simply place an NFC enabled smartphone on the TapBoard and tap the required information.
TapBoards contain a electronic circuit board which is powered by your smartphone. By pressing one of the TapBoards’ 8 menu buttons you select data to be passed to the phone via NFC. The selected information is displayed either on the phone’s browser or in an App.
As TapBoards use the smartphone’s power and internet connection to deliver the information they do not require external power, nor an internet connection, TapBoards can be placed anywhere.
Tap, Scan or TXT
TapBoards transfer information to your smartphone using NFC. Smartphones without NFC can either scan the QR Code or use TXT to open the interactive TapBoard menu.

What is NFC
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range, low power wireless link that can transfer small amounts of data between two devices held closely to each other.
NFC is pre-installed on most smartphones and a phone usually does not require an App to read a TapBoard.
The NFC needs to be turned on in the smartphone’s settings and your Smartphone needs to access the internet.
iPhone 1 to 5 do not have NFC, however a SMS code and QR Code is provided on every TapBoard so that iPhone users can still easily discover the same information.
Stats & Analytics
TapBoards provide marketers and analysts with a huge range of statistical data.
The data is access via the iPX and can be exported to other analytical systems.
Information includes time, date, location, information selected and may, depending on the application include some data on the users smartphone.
Everyone can use TapBoards
TapBoards are interactive and fun to use and you get to take the information you discover with you on smartphone.
Most late model smartphones equipped with NFC can use a TapBoard. NFC needs to be on and the phone requires an internet connection.
Early model iPhones that do not have NFC can use the SMS or QR Code displayed every TapBoard.
Some TapBoard installations use an App, the TapBoard will explain which App to download.
