OSPT Alliance Membership nears 100 as it increases influence on mobility services

OSPT Alliance, a global community that enables the future of mobility services across a variety of markets including transport, ticketing, access control and micro-payment, is close to attracting 100-member companies and organisations following a highly successful first half of 2018.

A total of 17 new members have joined the association over the last six months, representing a wide range of players across the mobility ecosystem including software developers, hardware and card manufacturers, system integrators, technology service providers and testing laboratories.

AUSTRIACARD and Elpass have joined the association as Full Members, while FIME and Keolabs have joined at the Affiliate Membership level. New Associate Members include Asensco Technologia, Autofind, Facillite, Nexus Technology, Pri-Num, Quanta-IT, San Joaquin Regional Transit District, Silone, Consorcio Sir Cuenca, solution LAB, Springcard, Tue Minh and Urbanito.

“The addition of 17 new members is further evidence of the momentum the Alliance is building in bringing together the mobility industry to increase innovation and interoperability across ‘mobility as a service’ solutions,” comments Philippe Martineau, President of the Board at OSPT Alliance.

“These new members have acknowledged the value that our non-proprietary open standard CIPURSE™ can bring to their product development and deployments.”

The last year has seen a breakthrough in the use of the CIPURSE Specification for ID and access control with a card-based driving licence in Brazil and student services at a university in Cuenca, Ecuador. In addition, in June, it was announced that the CIPURSE Specification has been selected for a new automated fare collection solution trial across Moscow’s Skolkovo bus route.

Throughout 2018 OSPT Alliance continues to evolve as it focuses on demonstrating the value of CIPURSE for new mobility services. Transport ticketing remains a key priority for the association as it continues its commitment to assist the industry as it moves towards the next generation of secure, cost-effective and open flexible fare collection solutions.

This work includes the Alliance’s ongoing contribution to HCE, through advancing the use of CIPURSE tokens in enabling contactless mobile ticketing. This software-based technology can enable operators today to deliver mobile ticketing services and support Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions. Further information on OSPT Alliance’s HCE abilities can be found here.

Influencing activity surrounding HCE and MaaS is a benefit of OSPT Alliance membership in addition to technical standardisation and strategic activity within the Alliance, early stage market intelligence, market influence and profile, and enhanced networking and collaboration opportunities.
