The Worldline solution allows Transilien to quickly and easily accept card payments in on-the-go environments, thanks to a Spire mobile payment terminal and an electronic payment application. The user experience for Transilien’s agents is very simple, fluid and fast: they are equipped with the payment terminal which is connected via Bluetooth to the smartphone that has the Transilien’s sales application.
"We chose Worldline to support our use cases’ transformation. We have identified travellers' expectations and we believe that on-the-go card payment can ease the wait time at the stations’ sales machines as well as facilitate the regularization of tickets, with notably agents positioned at the gates. The agents appreciate the simplicity and efficiency of the mobile application, and customers appreciate the dynamic image conveyed by this mobile solution", says Philippe Vilandrau, Systems, Sales, Validation and Pricing Projects Manager of at Transilien
