Consult Hyperion, an independent consultancy that specialises in the fields of secure transactions in contactless smart cards and mobile technologies, is pleased to announce that it is supporting The Institution of Engineering and Technology’s E-payment in Transport event. Taking place on 16th November at The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London, the seminar is an opportunity for attendees to understand how technology innovations are improving the UK’s transport business. All the latest technologies will be showcased and presentations during the day include speakers from, Con sult Hyperion, Mastercard, ITSO, Transport for London and Mobile Operators.
Mike Burden, Commercial Manager at Consult Hyperion, will be drawing on his experiences in the UK and abroad to speak about the evolution of transport ticketing and the key issues transport sectors need to consider when implementing an e-payment system.
“We’re proud to support this seminar which aims to bring the industry together to discuss and showcase the successes and innovations to date, as well as the challenges such as security, interoperability issues between transport sectors, and reduced public sector spending, said Mike Burden, Commercial Manager at Consult Hyperion. “The impact of technology on transport payments is huge, and consumers’ expectations of ticketing are changing, so it is essential that we as an industry understand this and utilise technology to provide effective and convenient outcomes for transport users.”
Other topics that will be discussed include the future of ticketing gates in the UK and the security of Near Field Communication. MasterCard will be discussing its PayPass scheme working within the transport sector, and the future for Transport for London’s Oyster card and how that is evolving will be examined.
