HaCon Expands Its Ticketing Expertise

— filed under: , , ,
Hannover Oct 13, 2015


Since 2013, the Hamburg-based ticketing expert EOS UPTRADE has been part of the extended HaCon family. Now, Bytemark, Inc., headquartered in New York City, has entered into a close partnership with HaCon as well.

HaCon is expanding its international activities into the North American market. Together with Bytemark, Inc., HaCon develops fully integrated, market-specific solutions for real-time mass transit planning and mobile ticketing. The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Capital Metro) in Austin, Texas, will be the first Bytemark customer to introduce HAFAS components.

Bytemark is one of the most ambitious startups of the industry and has successfully deployed mobile ticketing for agencies in New York City, Austin, Chicago, Boston and Toronto. "HaCon brings decades of experience to the mass transit agencies here in North America," said Micah Bergdale, CEO of Bytemark, Inc. "Together with our industry-leading software and mobile solutions for mobile ticketing and payments, this partnership will deliver powerful new IT capabilities for transit agencies and put accurate, real-time transit information in the hands of their riders."

Bytemark and HaCon are currently in the middle of their first joint project for Capital Metro, the regional public transportation provider in Central Texas.  In and around Austin, passengers will soon benefit from multimodal door-to-door trip planning, push notifications and real-time data that will be visualized on a dynamic HAFAS Live Map. "We launched the mobile app to streamline the rider's boarding and riding experience," said Capital Metro President/CEO Linda Watson. "Convenient trip-planning capabilities are integral to the user's experience, and the new enhanced app with next-generation technology will make it even easier to use."

Michael Frankenberg, managing director at HaCon, looks forward to valuable synergies: "Together with Bytemark and EOS UPTRADE, we now want to promote the integration of ticketing in our apps beyond European borders. Both partnerships expand our possibilities to meet our customers' wishes and needs to the fullest possible extent." EOS UPTRADE and Bytemark are also working together closely to further develop their products by exchanging their experiences and knowledge with one another.
