BMS Tehnologija and Turnit developed a joint solution for managing the ticketing system within the framework of the TICKETER EST-LAT85 project
In October 2018, the Latvian international technology company BMS Tehnologija, in cooperation with the Estonian company Turnit, began work on the development and implementation of a unified ticket management system solution. After a year and a half of successful cooperation, the companies developed an integrated solution for public passenger transport operators.
At the beginning of the project, the goal was to develop a comprehensive solution for the ticket management system, which will be offered as a comprehensive software and hardware package for small cities and intercity carriers. Working on the product for a year and a half, step by step, this product was developed and will be available to many carriers.
“Participation with our Latvian partners in the "Interreg Estonia-Latvia" program was a great success for us at Turnit. It helped us to open new boundaries and client base. Such collaboration has helped us to improve our product and extend the range of partnerships to Latvian and Lithuanian market,” told Turnit CEO Andres Osula.
In addition to working on a solution, the project partners also visited a number of exhibitions at which they adopted the experience of other companies representing this industry, as well as learned useful information that can be used not only for the development of this project, but also for its development in the future. Representatives of BMS Tehnologija visited four exhibitions - Intelligent Transport Conference, Transport Ticketing Global, UITP Global Public Transport Summit and ITF Summit 2019. At two of these exhibitions, not only the solution being developed, but also the prototype was presented. Presenting the solution at exhibitions, companies had the opportunity to meet with potential customers and partners.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in the "Interreg Estonia-Latvia" program together with our Estonian colleagues. Participation in the program was a difficult challenge, but it was successfully accepted, which as a result led us to our goal achievement and development of a common solution with our partners. We are also grateful for the support that we received from the representatives of the program throughout the project,” said Andrei Blazhko, member of the board of BMS Technology.
Project is funded via Interreg Estonia-Latvia program which is a part of European Regional Development Fund. The total funding budget for the project is 462 613.64 EUR.
