With Bell ID’s Mobile Token Manager Software, we have been able to implement the necessary framework to oversee the secure delivery and management of mobile NFC services to any NFC capable device, including BlackBerry smartphones. As the software is vendor neutral, we have the flexibility to work with any third party provider to manage a global NFC ecosystem.”
