SUNNYVALE, Calif. & GLASGOW, Scotland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) announced the launch of its award-winning mobile ticketing solution for a pilot with Scotland’s national rail operator, ScotRail. The new all-in-one solution is fully integrated with ScotRail’s existing ticketing app and will enable customers to skip the queue at ticket vending machines and tap through the gates by purchasing and downloading tickets directly to their smartphone.
Tap and go with a smartphone for an easier travel experience
Rambus’ HCE Ticket Wallet Service leverages technology proven in the payments industry to create a virtual smartcard that securely stores tickets on mobile devices. The solution integrates with existing software and station infrastructure, allowing transport operators to manage both smartcard and mobile tickets in a single system, reducing integration costs and deployment time.
“This pilot app delivers the convenient, easy access to tickets and travel that we know our customers want,” said Lesley Kane, commercial director at ScotRail. “Over the coming months, customers will be able to buy and download digital tickets from a single app, anytime, anywhere. This is a really exciting time for Scotland’s railway as we continue to build the best railway this country has ever had.”
Purchase, store and use tickets in a single, mobile app
Customers are increasingly expecting more innovative forms of ticketing and so transport operators are looking to smartphones as the point of delivery for new services. This also reduces the need to issue and manage physical smartcards and provides greater convenience for customers who don’t have to wait for a card to arrive in the post as they can quickly register and download their virtual smartcard instead.
“Delivering a modern and innovative transport experience that customers can rely on is a key driver for smart mobile ticketing,” said Russell McCullagh, vice president and general manager of Rambus Ticketing. “We’re delighted to combine our expertise developing and deploying high-volume ITSO-based ticketing systems, through our Nevis Technologies joint venture, with ScotRail’s drive to provide a truly seamless and leading-edge customer experience.”
