South East Flexible Ticketing to get ‘smart’

Smart421 wins contract for South East Flexible Ticketing system.

By Ben Sullivan

Smart421, an IT services firm, has won a contract to supply a next generation smart ticketing system for UK train lines.

The contract was for the South East Flexible Ticketing (SEFT) system and will enable rail passengers to benefit from automatic gate opening, NFC technology and personalisation features such as a photos.

The SEFT programme will deliver ITSO smart ticketing to the rail network in South East England, surrounding London. ITSO is the nationally agreed UK open specification for transport tickets on smart media, to include plastic smart cards and mobile devices that support Near Field Communications (NFC).

Neil Miles, managing director at Smart421, said, "The SEFT contract reinforces Smart421’s leading position and role in digital transformation in the Rail sector; Smart421 delivered the Live Sales Management system for Rail Settlement Plan as well as a separate Service Integration and Management (SIAM) project for National Rail Enquiries. We are delighted to be involved in SEFT which will contribute directly to improvements that both the Government and rail passengers want to see."
