Transport core module

It ensures batch verification of transaction using Account Verification Request (AVR) for Visa cards and pre-authorization for MasterCard cards. Authorization from offline transactions is transmitted from terminals. Results of the AVR process are transmitted in intervals to the Fare Collect module to settle transactions and the Fare blacklist module for regular updates of blacklists.

  • Transaction authorization
  • Transaction routing via an H2H connection to the selected processing center
  • Ability to connect terminal networks of various partners
  • Terminal network key management (shielded from authorization center keys)
  • Transaction verification and risk management modules that excelled in high-risk environments
  • Resilient, scalable performance (millions of transactions per day)

 

The module features sophisticated systems to manage risks and optimize authorization requests based on configurable parameters specific to bank card acceptance in transport ticketing solutions.

  • Risk management function
  • Fare Blacklist function
  • Fare Collect functions
  • Automatic debt recovery process

Account base ticketing offers the opportunity for schemes and transport operators to move the fare calculation software and logic away from the card reader to the back office (or ‘cloud’) where the account of the traveller also resides.

So the various modules, such as fare calculation, always have access to every existing data set within the system. This allows the tariff system to be designed in a completely dynamic and flexible way, without the passenger’s active involvement in the processes.

Electronic ticket / E-ticket - an electronic ticket system is a more efficient method of ticket entry, processing, and marketing for transport industries.
