Parkeon joins the ACT Cloud to extend ITSO smart ticketing capability

27 January 2014

Parkeon has secured ITSO Part 11* smart ticketing capability for its range of rail industry Ticket Vending Machines (TVM) by joining the ACT Cloud. 

The deal will enable Parkeon, a global leader in mass transit ticketing and parking payment solutions, to integrate the ACT Remote POST into its Astreo and Galexio TVM ranges to support the purchase and collection of rail ticket products using ITSO compliant smart cards. 

Paul Moirano, Parkeon Sales Director for UK Rail, said, “By joining the ACT Cloud, we will be able to offer ITSO smart card holders speedy ticket vending and fulfilment solutions via our TVM portfolio, bringing the vision of a truly integrated public transport network one step closer. ”

 ACT is making it simple to connect more systems to its Cloud Ticketing service. All the communications, transaction processing and payments are managed in the ACT Cloud, so retailers and ticketing equipment suppliers don’t need to invest in additional hardware to gain ITSO capability. 

Gary Watts, CEO, ACT explained, “Over the last year we have developed a new approach to support the growth in smart ticketing. Our Cloud Services provide a framework and infrastructure that’s easy for our Cloud Partners to join, without the need for additional hardware investment.

“We provide the secure, resilient and scalable infrastructure that enables our partners to grow their services fast, reliably and cost-effectively, by tapping into the ACT Cloud.”

 For more information about joining the ACT Cloud, please contact Nigel Cullum, Head of ACT Partner Programme.

 

 * ITSO - Government backed ITSO specifies the secure technical, electronic platform on which UK smart ticketing schemes can be built. Part 11 was an addition to the ITSO specification and provides the technical specification to remotely locate ISAMs (ITSO Secure Application Module) from the device the user presents their customer media to.
