17 July 2023, Denmark – Vix Technology, a leading global provider of intelligent transport solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been selected to join a framework agreement with Rejsekort & Rejseplan (RKRP). This agreement brings together four vendors to create an innovative solution that will allow for a smooth transition from Denmark’s existing card-based ticketing system to a new mobile-focused platform.
Rejsekort is the national card-based ticketing system used by over 2 million customers, while Rejseplan is a journey planner and provides live traffic information to passengers across Denmark. The proposed new solution will integrate these services together, with mobile ticketing a key component, while also requiring a non-mobile component to ensure inclusivity for all passengers. The solution will need to work within a complex ecosystem comprising multiple public transport operators (PTOs), travel zones, fare types and concessions.
Martihn Sjöstedt, General Manager Nordics & Northern Europe, commented on Vix’s selection: “Vix is very well placed to deliver on RKRP’s goal of transitioning to a digital-first solution that integrates journey planning, booking and ticketing into one service. We’re highly experienced in managing complex fares and zone structures, and look forward to bringing our expertise and industry leading technology to support RKRP throughout this project.”
The framework agreement groups four vendors and splits the solution into eight modules, allowing RKRP to choose the best of breed technology for each module.
“For significant projects like this, a one-size-fits-all solution isn’t going to work,” Sjöstedt added. “Collaborating with partners and operators to deliver a best-in-class solution together is completely aligned with how we work at Vix, which is why this is an exciting opportunity to be qualified for. We expect to see more procurement being done like this in the future, and we’re prepared for it.”
