Each piece within the new collection is equipped with Smartrac's Experiences solution, and embedded with the Smartrac's Circus Dura NFC tag, featured by NXP's NTAG 213 IC, under the KBA logo. Customers can tap the logo with any NFC-enabled device to receive a dynamic user experience powered by Blue Bite, which includes product information, collection lookbook, real-time social media feeds, and a countdown to the next content update.
"We always aim to be on the forefront of quality and designs with our swimwear. Upon launching our new activewear line, we wanted to offer the best in technology, functions and quality - all in the same product. NFC technology fulfilled all of our requirements, especially when partnering with the leading providers of this technology. Blue Bite and Smartrac were easy choices," said Alexander Hagard Gronwall, co-founder at Khongboon Group Ltd.
"Partnering with Khongboon and Blue Bite is another confirmation that Smartrac's innovative products and solutions are essential ingredients for end-to-end product digitisation. Bringing digital services to their products presents a major opportunity for brand manufacturers, and Smartrac is proud to support Khongboon in making the most of that opportunity," said Corey L Wilson, vice president global business development, Smartrac.
"The launch of the new KBA brand comes at a time when fitness is an increasing priority for many individuals. The integration of Blue Bite technology into apparel provides health-conscious consumers added benefits that are currently unavailable in other activewear lines. We look forward to continuing the collaboration on new and compelling digital experiences for Khongboon customers," said Mikhail Damiani, CEO of Blue Bite. (KD)
