Transport ticketing experts, Evolvi Rail Systems & Penrillian, have collaborated to create the first mobile solution to provide multimodal ITSO ticketing services.
The collaboration provides UK rail content to Penrillian’s Voyager product and means Voyager can support integrated travel ticketing across multiple modes of transport.
Joanne Thompson, CEO at Penrillian said “It is quite clear that mobile ticketing is the future and there are a number of organisations and operators that have made huge strides, but the big issue still to be addressed is seamless integration across ticketing services operating in individual silos. We believe that we have made a major breakthrough, for the first time bringing rail together with all other modes of public transport to provide passengers with the ability to plan, purchase and download ITSO tickets for their entire journey.”
Ken Cameron, Managing Director of Evolvi Rail Systems commented “We are delighted that Penrillian has chosen Evolvi to provide UK Rail content to its Voyager product and look forward to collaborating on this exciting project.”
Penrillian has been liaising with the Rail Development Group to ensure Voyager’s full and endorsed compatibility with the requirements of the Rail Settlement Plan standards. Melvin Mayes of the Rail Delivery Group stated: “It’s essential that the exciting new developments in future ticketing such as Penrillian’s Voyager product are developed in accordance with our standards. This helps ensure these innovative products can be integrated into the complex multi mode schemes that are being developed.”
Penrillian is one of the world’s most experienced developers of mobile technology, creating innovative software solutions for connected and mobile devices since 2000. Millions of people use its software every day for contactless payment, mobile tracking and wireless dongles to smart ticket apps.
