JCM Global’s NFC Mobile IO device is the latest innovation from the world leader in secure transaction gaming solutions. NFC Mobile IO stands for “Near-Field Communication Mobile Input/Output,” and is a small-form-factor network module. The unit is mounted to the front exterior of an EGM, enabling contactless transactions at any EGM operating with JCM’s iVIZION bill validator, GEN5 printer, and FUZION technology.

JCM’s NFC Mobile IO gives players the ability to interact with the EGM using a secure mobile connection, primarily to enable contactless financial transactions. However, JCM designed the device to be incredibly flexible, giving operators multiple options to use it with other applications developed by third-party providers.

For example, any application can interface with NFC Mobile IO through secure APIs. This means operators bring enhanced mobile interaction to players while they are on property. Operators can also further future-proof their floors by establishing NFC Mobile IO as a mobile transaction portal for current and future casino applications.

With NFC Mobile IO connecting to the player’s mobile device, applications can notify players of available mobile marketing and promotions, expiring player funds, or specific events, greatly enhancing the property’s marketing abilities as well as the player experience.

JCM’s NFC Mobile IO allows for location-based services and geolocation validation, bringing both added convenience and security. For example, as the customer interacts with NFC Mobile IO, operators can verify the identity and location of every transaction (financial, promotional, gaming, etc.), and suspicious activity and money laundering can be tracked directly back to all user accounts.

JCM selected NFC technology for the device because the short-range connection that is inherent in NFC provides enhanced security, seamless communication, and zero interference with other devices. NFC technology has been globally proven to be convenient and versatile, and it is the industry standard for mobile payment providers.
