COLOMBES, France - Tuesday, March 24th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Oberthur Technologies (OT), a world leader in digital security solutions for the mobility space, today announced its selection by Stockholm’s Lokaltrafik (SL), the largest public transport company in Sweden, as sole supplier of travel contactless smart cards and associated personalization services.
SL manages the Swedish capital’s transport network, used every day by 700 000 travellers. Thanks to OT’s cityGo contactless smart cards, Swedish commuters benefit from a more convenient, secure and easier transportation experience: they can remotely buy their tickets and just have to wave their contactless cityGo card in front of a terminal to access transportation; no ticket in the pocket which is more time efficient.
OT has been appointed by SL to deliver a complete solution including contactless travel cards and pre-personalization and personalization with the cardholder’s data, as well as the fulfilment. OT will also support SL migrating to new technologies, including new smart cards with increased security features and new services around NFC, which will further enhance the travellers’ experience.
“OT is delighted to bring its expertise to SL which is the largest transport network operator in Sweden in order to offer end-users an enhanced travel experience” said Eric Duforest Payment Business Unit Managing Director at OT.
