Penrillian launches Voyager app to aid public transport users

penrillianPenrillian, the mobile software developer, has created a new app that enables users to plan, purchase, download and top up tickets and passes for public transport directly to a smartcard via their mobile device. The app, called Voyager, says the company aims to make travel simpler, quicker and easier.

Penrillian’s software is used by millions of people every day, from ticket apps to contactless payment solutions & wireless dongles developed for major clients including MasterCard, EE, TUI and Vodafone.

This latest technology development is intended to enable public transport operators to offer a customer the facility to buy tickets and passes, then instantly top up their ITSO (the national standard for smart ticketing) travel smartcard using their mobile’s in-built Near Field Communication capabilities.

Joanne Thompson, Penrillian’s CEO, explained, “In order to remain competitive, travel operators need to drive down the costs of installing and maintaining ticket machines, minimise their cash transaction volumes, reduce or eliminate queuing, and reduce their customer’s journey steps from purchase to use.”

“Our Voyager app has been developed in order to meet these needs. The ITSO compliant app can provide seamless and real time transactional capability, combining journey planning, ticket purchase and ticket delivery direct to their smartcard via a customer’s own smartphone.”

“As a modular and white label product, we have designed Voyager to be capable of rapid and low-cost, low-risk implementation for operators, with subsequent costs linked to transaction volumes.”

“Smart tickets and contactless payment apps are becoming the norm, and are being adopted by a wide cross section of our population. Penrillian continues to carve out a niche in this area.”
