The UK Home Office's Identity and Passport Service has created an Android app that allows citizens to read the embedded NFC chip present in most passports issued since 2006. The app is a proof of concept that displays the data held on the passport once a user has entered their passport number, date of expiry and date of birth. The passport cannot be verified as genuine by this method, although future versions of the app might do so, the Home Office says.
MedStar Software (MedStar) has partnered with SkyBank Financial (SkyBank), a leader in electronic payment processing services for businesses of all sizes in the United States and Latin America. With a growing need for medical practice management software to enhance productivity and increase profitability for its users, MedStar now offers an integrated payment processing solution that eliminates reconciliation issues caused by duplicate data entry, while also lowering the fees associated with processing credit and debit card transactions.
