Open Payments systems mean easier, faster and more streamlined access to transport services. FLOWBIRD

Transport and mobility technology provider Flowbird has been named the winner of the EuMo Expo Innovation Award for its Open Payments expertise.

The company received the accolade during the recent European mobility exhibition, held digitally, for its success in enabling passengers to access and pay for multimodal travel using contactless bank cards and smartphones.

“We are delighted to have won this prestigious award,” said Francois Mottet, Head of Product Management and Strategy at Flowbird Transport Intelligence.

“For passengers, our Open Payments systems mean easier, faster and more streamlined access to transport services, while operators benefit from a more efficient fare collection and ticketing process, with lower risk of non-payment.

“Travellers also benefit from a ‘best fare’ guarantee for individual journeys without needing to navigate sometimes complex journey and fares rules, while for people making multiple journeys over a given timeframe, fare capping rules can be automatically applied. All this is managed in a cloud-enabled back office, along with a secure revenue settlement process for operators.”

Flowbird was named the winner of the Innovation Award after receiving the greatest number of votes cast online by virtual visitors to the event.
The EuMo Expo digital show attracted manufacturers, operators, engineering companies, electronic payment and ticketing companies involved in the mobility movement from across Europe. Further details can be found at flowbird.group/transport
