Never before have companies and establishments been able to engage so completely with their customers - directly to the devices they value so much - converging marketing to an easy payment experience. I am thrilled to have joined such an experienced and passionate team who really do live and breathe NFC!".

The interest in NFC from advertisers, network operators and handset manufacturers is growing at a phenomenal rate and the demand for our services is mirroring that rapid increase. The challenge for us is to recruit people who have the right skills in what is still a very new technology to deliver high quality NFC marketing and payment solutions for our clients. I am delighted that we have been able to secure the services of Russell and Stuart as they are both high calibre operators and I am sure that they will contribute to the growth of Proxama's client base."
