Snapper performing on the world stage with its account-based ticketing solution
Snapper is thrilled to have been named runner up for the supreme award of Transport Ticketing Technology at the annual Transport Ticketing Global Awards in London.
Snapper entered its account-based ticketing solution – a payment method where customers are no longer required to top-up their smart card in order to travel, but instead have their fare direct debited from their credit or debit card. It’s been trialling the technology in Wellington and will be rolling it out further soon.
CEO Miki Szikszai says he would love to have come first but to be runner up from an international field of over 40 entrants was still an amazing feeling.
“New Zealand produces innovative tech companies that belong on the world stage. After winning the supreme award in 2015, Snapper has again been recognised at this prestigious event as a company that develops innovative and quality technology products that not only fit customer needs now but also prepares us for the future of Public Transport.
“The judges said we are literally removing barriers for transport authorities to implement an account-based ticketing solution. Given account-based ticketing solutions often take up to five years to deploy, cities around the world now have a new option to provide these benefits to their customers faster and at a fraction of the cost.”
Snapper is the provider of ticketing solutions to the entire Republic of Ireland, Riga in Latvia as well as Wellington.
“We can’t wait to take this product out to the rest of the world, and we’re sure with this international achievement this will only increase the considerable interest we’ve already generated,” says Miki.
Transport Ticketing Global is an annual expo of the world’s leading transport ticketing providers. Companies from all over the world gather in London to show off their wares. The top providers are recognised at these prestigious awards.
