AEP is strengthening its leadership in the implementation of EMV bank card based systems according to the Transit model of Transport for London, not only with the automatic application of the most convenient fare (best fare) but also with additional functions, such as multi-passenger and the possibility of use in suburban areas.
So far 16 systems have been implemented and 9 more are already in order.
With ET-MOBILE, we add to the modern Apps a beloved solution of the past, the paper ticket, with all its advantages and without the problems that characterized it. The “smart paper tickets” are equipped with QR-codes and can be issued by all the devices of the system (ticket offices, TVM, e-commerce portal, on-board devices, etc.) or massively produced in printers and distributed to retailers or staff. Complex tickets are possible, such as multi-passenger tickets, multi-ride carnet and check-in/check-out, both on paper ticket and App. ET-MOBILE then solves one of the major problems of ABT systems, as it can operate for a certain period of time even in the absence of communication with the center, thanks to an optimized local replication of the data base contained in the central system; and this is not only for validation and verification purposes but also for sales, which can thus also take place on buses.
The improvement of communication networks makes it possible to implement Account Based Ticketing (ABT) systems, where data is stored, instead of a card, in a central system customer account in the cloud. Cards are only used to identify the cardholder and do not carry other information while the process takes place in real time in the central system and no longer locally. This makes it possible to use any card, such as a bank or health card, as a means of taxation for a public transport subscription.
Futura 3B is the top of the range AEP contactless/optics validator and is probably the best product we have ever made. Its exceptional style, due to Giugiaro Design's pencil, is combined with state-of-the-art technical features, both for contactless and optical validation.
Futura 3B can be configured according to the customer's requirements, not only with many technical-functional options, but also in color and graphics, in order to become the distinguishing element of your fleet.
AEP's range of equipment is certainly one of the widest on the market. But if your needs go further, AEP's Technical Department is able to design the solution you need, thanks to highly specialized technicians, latest generation equipment and long-standing know-how, aligned to the state of the art.
In AEP we are in fact in possession of all the technologies necessary to realize the product that meets your requirements, in record time and with certainty of the result, from specifications to certification tests.
This service is also available to old AEP Customers, to evaluate those upgrade opportunities that could extend the life of existing systems, before declaring them obsolete and having to replace them. Only a large company like AEP can offer this type of service.
The Electronic Ticketing System is a living and constantly changing entity, both because of the nature of public transport, which must adapt every day to the needs of a changing world, and because the information that the system produces is a valuable tool, which allows the Management to constantly improve the service. The best systems and the most advanced products can therefore only be adequately exploited with efficient, flexible and responsive support services such as those offered by AEP, which guarantees them for at least 10 years after purchase.
The electronic ticketing market is still growing and few companies in the sector have expanded as AEP in recent years: we are now suppliers and trusted partners of many important Companies in Italy and abroad.
