The alliance will provide smart cities with a new generation of ‘mobility as a service’ solutions
Finland-based fintech PayiQ and Australian smart mobility software developer SkedGo have created an alliance to provide smart cities with a new generation of ‘mobility as a service’ (MaaS) solutions, designed to transform the public transport experience.
The alliance can deliver a cashless user experience for urban travelling, by combining SkedGo’s trip planning solutions with PayiQ’s mobile ticketing platform, which uses Microsoft Azure technology.
“We have worked with PayiQ in a small pilot before and their technology has proven to be advanced and reliable,” said Claus von Hessberg, co-founder of SkedGo. “Pairing mobile ticketing with journey planning is a natural fit and delivers the perfect one-stop-shop experience for customers. Juggling several transport apps will become a thing of the past eventually and this is a step in the right direction towards making MaaS a reality.”
“We’re excited about this alliance with SkedGo,” said Tuomo Parjanen, chief executive officer at PayiQ. “By combining our ticketing-as-a-service platform with SkedGo’s trip planning services we can offer customers one app with which to plan their journey and pay for all the necessary vehicles and tickets, and even events.”
