IDOM posses the know-how to assist on master planning, design and upgrading, testing, support for the implementation and operation of the most advanced ticketing systems.
IDOM, in recent years, is aware as consortiums, operators, suppliers and ticketing consultants are receiving information impacts from a multitude of new technologies promising to be the definitive solution to all the possible limitations of current AFC systems and allowing us to offer new seamless travel experiences to our commuters.
Travel card emulations inside mobile SIMs, open loop systems, physical or virtual EMV financial cards, bluetooth beacons, static or dynamic QR codes, NFC for top-up or validation are examples of this wide range of technology that can confuse us. Oyster in London or EZ-Link in Singapore become unreachable icons of ticketing R&D producing a permanent sensation of never being technologically up to date.
Engineering and consultancy services
At IDOM we have been providing manufacturer independent ticketing engineering and consultancy services for over 3 decades, while working with many of these providers on almost all of our customers’ projects. In this time, we have been able to learn that there is no single and perfect model valid for all metropolises.
It is just the opposite, each system is and must be the fruit of its history (technological precedents or security schemes, fare policies). The stability of transport, the volume of infrastructures as well as their long technological investment life cycles make continuous adaptation to change more complex. Nor should we forget the types and proportion of users and their socioeconomic profile, since not everyone is prepared or has a financial card, a smartphone or a state-of-the-art NFC wearable.
Therefore a master plan that defines the architecture, roadmaps and appropriate proportions of each of these complex ingredients is one of the great keys in our AFC sector.
