- Framework Agreement on card supply for the next three years
- Europe's most innovative urban transport system relies on exceet competency
exceet Card Group AG, a leading European producer of RFID, dual interface and chip cards, recently signed a new agreement with Translink, representing the re-extension of a long-standing, successful partnership. The agreement pertains to the supply of smartcards to Translink.
Translink operates the ticketing system for public transport in the Netherlands. The contactless OV chip cards are used in buses, trams, metro and urban railways across the country and in all cities. The project, managed by Translink, is considered one of the most innovative public transport projects in Europe and has model character.
Reliable - All day, every day
Each day, the card is used countless times throughout the Dutch urban transport ticketing system and is thus in continual use. For such a project to be successful, a secure and reliable card is indispensable. Translink will continue to rely on the knowhow of exceet's experts and can depend on the high quality of the smartcards supplied by exceet. The new three-year agreement confirms and expands the close, long-standing partnership between exceet and Translink.
"With our state-of-the-art production facilities and our many years of experience in manufacturing and supplying smartcard technologies for use in public transport, we can support Translink in guaranteeing a secure and user-friendly transport ticketing system. At the same time, the contract underscores our high technical competency in the field of transportation", says Philipp Egner, Head of Segment, Access & Transport at exceet.
Translink operates as the connecting force behind the OV-chipkaart. What does that mean? Not just processing 2 billion transactions per year, but much more besides. As we have now built up a wealth of experience, knowledge and data on contactless payment in public transport. We are developing a variety of innovative, well thought-out services for our customers, with a clear vision of the future. And for passengers, because they're what it's all about.
