Ticketer is beginning the celebrations for its 10th year in businesses by throwing its full support behind the ALBUM Conference in Cardiff. Not only is the company exhibiting, as usual, it is sponsoring the delegate bags and John Clarfelt is one of the guest speakers.
ALBUM members were the first Ticketer customers and have benefitted from a decade of technical developments which today include contactless payments, schedule adherence and the latest developments of Tap On/Tap Off and Demand Responsive Travel (DRT) technology.
John Clarfelt, Managing Director of Ticketer, comments: “ALBUM members are the bedrock of our business and have shaped the way Ticketer has developed as a result. Their support has meant that we can develop and grow, but we have maintained the philosophy of providing the same service to all customers regardless of fleet size. We are also committed to making new software updates and technology developments available to all operators for the lifetime of the ETM, at no extra charge.”
All Ticketer’s ETMs run identical software, with the same features available whether the operator has hundreds of units or just one. The ETMs can accept contactless EMV as well as mTickets, paper QR tickets, ITSO smartcards and cash, enabling operators to tailor payments to the preferences of their passengers.
At the Conference, ALBUM members will be able to explore the benefits of driver defect checks, Ticketer’s latest solution for DRT services, as well as Tap On/Tap off and Account Based Ticketing. Ticketer’s system is the UK’s first to guarantee passengers pay for their actual journey, rather than a flat fare. Passengers Tap On with their contactless credit or debit card, then Tap Off as they disembark. They no longer need to state their destination or ticket type to the driver.
Clarfelt concludes: “We are very proud to support the ALBUM Conference. The most important thing for us is to have the opportunity to catch up with old friends and welcome some new ones.”
