End-to-end ticketing solution


Developing pricing models, analysing income, acquiring customers – IVU.fare manages the entire spectrum of sales processes from setting fares through to settling ticket sales. IVU.ticket brings tickets to the customer: Printing paper tickets, selling and validating e-tickets – the software for sales and inspection terminals handles all transactions reliably, whether in the vehicle or at the counter.

The IVU.fare central background system contains all data required to process ticket sales, including fares, devices in use, sellers, and seller authorisations. The integrated customer management function makes the multi-client-capable system an end-to-end e-tick­eting solution. From ticket issuing and contract man­age­ment, through to automatic SEPA direct debits – everything remains within one system.

IVU.ticket calculates the appropriate price through its connection to IVU.fare. The software takes position data from the on-board com­puter via standard protocol for easier location finding. IVU.ticket assists with both cash sales and cashless card payments using the pay terminal – contactless or with PIN entry. It also supports widely used e-ticket standards such as VDV-KA and Calypso as well as barcode tickets – for example, from the IVU.ticket.app.

The mobile ticketing app takes care of the whole process on your smartphone. When used with IVU.fare, extensive evaluation functions are available to transport operators.

IVU.validator
Whether you use it purely as a reading device for boarding checks or in combination with the optional screen as a useroperated sales terminal – the IVU.validator enhances the IVU.ticket.box with a number of attractive features. The device is attached to the second door and not only takes some of the pressure off the driver, but also makes boarding faster.
