Quebec City chooses Paragon ID for the development of its mobile ticketing solution
Paragon ID wins a five-year contract renewable for two additional years, worth close to 1 million euros with the RTC.
Paragon ID, the leading provider of identification solutions for Transport, e-ID, Traceability, Brand Protection and Payment, is pleased to announce that it has won the public tender for the implementation of the mobile ticketing solution of Réseau de Transport de la Capitale (RTC, Quebec) for a total amount of 1.44 million Canadian dollars (approximately 980 K€).
The solution deployed will be that of airweb*, a company in which Paragon ID made a strategic investment last year. (see press release dated November 13th 2018).
Paragon ID and airweb teams have worked together for several months to develop and promote airweb's mobile ticketing “platform as a service” (PaaS), internationally. This key success demonstrates the complementary nature of both companies’ know-how and their respective market positions.
This latest contract brings the number of public transport networks that have opted for airweb’s solution to more than thirty. The solution allows users to have access to a complete ticketing system on their smartphone, enabling end-to-end journeys while giving access to real-time passenger information. The mobile ticketing solution will be connected to RTC's existing "real-time Nomad" application, which allows users to access real-time information about their bus and plan routes on the bus network of Quebec.
A leader in ticketing solutions for public transport and Smart Cities, Paragon ID is pursuing its strategy of international expansion with an innovative offering to support transport and mobility operators in their technological evolutions.
Clem Garvey, CEO at Paragon ID, comments:
” We are particularly proud of this success in mobile ticketing, which confirms the relevance of our strategy to support our customers in their digital transformation. The adoption of our solution by RTC demonstrates the power of the combination of airweb’s technology and the presence and strong credibility of Paragon ID in Smart Cities around the world.”
Xavier Debbasch, CEO at airweb, adds:
” We are delighted by the Réseau de Transport de la Capitale’s decision to choose our mobile ticketing technology, confirming our positioning as the most complete mobile ticketing solution in the market.”
Airweb develops and installs mobile apps and other digital solutions.
The company is based in St Cloud - close to Paris - and has a team mostly focused on IOS & Android apps based on a flexible back end technology.
