Smart Ticketing For a Smart Future

The world is moving into cities, but the streets are not getting any wider. Smart traffic is a must, and to make it work smooth mobile ticketing, validation and payment experience is vital. This is our mission.

PayiQ is an account based multimodal mobile ticketing platform for transport operators and city event organizers. You can work with us directly or through our network of partners.

Are You Ready to Join the Growth Game in Transportation?

There are at least two ways of looking at changing transportation: what’s shrinking and what’s emerging. These are always the two sides of disruption. Car manufacturers face a diminishing market as people opt not to own a car. Local bus companies that have enjoyed monopoly returns for years see their customers moving to bigger cities and closer to rail services. Traditional taxis are fighting for clients with the ride-sharing companies. At the same time, the ride-sharing companies, the eScooter services and the MaaS operators are growing, soon to be joined by autonomous taxis and maybe even passenger drones.

How to Start With the Smart Today

When we talk about Mobility as a Service (MaaS) we usually talk about MaaS operators. You can think of MaaS as a pyramid, with the modern operator represented by an app on the top, and traditional operators that offer physical transportation services at the bottom.This approach immediately offers two ways to look at and build MaaS: top down and ground up. Top down MaaS starts with an application, designed to be as beautiful and easy to use as possible, and then connects different modes of transport to it. A big part of the idea is of course that you can use the same app in as many places as possible. When this works it is convenient for the user, and the big dream is to have the world’s transportation behind one application. In practice the heterogeneity of cities and their transportation systems makes this extremely difficult.

Let’s Not Jeopardize Smart Cities With Dilettante Directives

Just when The European Union should be stepping up its efforts to keep the old continent competitive in the digital game, it introduces regulation that will probably drop the usage of some of the most important mobile applications by 50 %. The idea of Payment Service Directive 2 (PSD2) is to make the world safer for digital consumers and increase competition in the banking sector. The idea is great, the reality looks like a disaster.

Smart Cities Require Open APIs

Whenever a new technology is introduced, there are two main questions hanging in the air: does it work and what is it good for? The first question is best answered by trying the thing yourself and, if there is interest, studying the architecture behind it. The second question refers to money or time saved, quality improved or some other measurable improvement to the current state.
Decision-making on new technology should therefore be relatively rational, but it seldom is.

A Modern Ticket Is Your Key To The World of Transport

We still call the supercomputers in our pockets phones, although that is not how we use them much. Modern ticketing is a little bit like that. We can call it ticketing, but it is growing into something entirely different than a receipt for a single travel fare.

Pay-as-you-go challenges the subscription model

In smart mobility we are seeing a trend that is challenging this and that may be a game changer. It is pay-as-you-go, but with a twist in the end.

How to Run a Successful Public Procurement in Smart Ticketing

A public procurement that’s put together without proper knowledge can turn out to be a messy, time consuming, expensive and discouraging affair for everyone involved. Here are a few observations we at PayiQ have made over the years regarding successful public procurements in smart mobility…

Smart Cities Can Thrive on Account-Based Data

Account-based ticketing is a trending buzzword in our business but it is also a profound change in how transport is operated, understood and developed.

Why Ticketing Infrastructure Is a Group Effort

When I book a meeting saying I’m from a smart ticketing company, people are glad to see me, but when we sit down, the first question I often get is: “We’ve already got our own mobility app. Why are we having this meeting?”
