Integration is nowadays the key element to improve urban mobility overall. We believe that as more mobility services are integrated under the same experience, more travellers will be attracted, benefitting all operators.
Pick is an agnostic platform that integrates and aims to offer the more complete range of mobility services: metro, bus, tram, train, car-sharing, car-hailing, bike-renting, ferry boat, etc. Quite soon, highways with tolls and car parks will be also able of adhering to the platform.
Pick is an alternative channel that operators can benefit, in parallel with the systems they have in place, to sell their mobility services, collect fares, access real-time ridership information, and control passengers flow, without investing in infrastructure, as Pick relies primarily in the resources of travellers smartphones. Yes, REALLY, no infrastructure is needed.
Pick provides full control and transparency. Operators are notified each time a traveller gets in or out. Each fare collected is sent directly in real-time to their account. Pick works with instant payments, ensuring security and the lowest cost per transaction for small amount payments.
Pick is very competitive, as it dematerialises the actual common elements that represent investment, maintenance or stock, like vending machines which need to be feeded of money, cards or tickets, validators to control travellers flow, etc.
Pick provides real-time information about ridership, so you can react immediately to get the maximum value from your operation.
Pick allows an excellent control of fraud and fares avoidance, which can be done on the go to increase the speed of travellers’ flow, particularly in rush times. Pick includes a free-of-charge app for your staff or bus drivers to audit riders tickets or travel situation, even when their smartphones run out of battery.
Pick can even be easily integrated with the systems which control gates that need to be opened to allow riders to get in and off (closed systems).
Communicate in real-time with travellers to warn them, contextually, of any anomaly or disruption. They can also notify you of problems faced in the field. This improves the relationship with customers and their experience.
Through Pick you get powerful information regarding fare collection and ridership, and in real-time, which is a tremendous advantage compared to any alternative. You can explore this valuable information through your dashboard in our platform, but also export it or connect it, through web-services, with other software you may use. Again, you do not need to invest in equipment, nor abdicate of existing systems.
