RATP Smart Systems with Viva technology

From 16 to 18 May 2019, the world meeting of innovation and new technologies Viva Technology has resumed its brands at the Porte de Versailles. More than 100,000 visitors and nearly 10,000 start-ups from around the world were present for the fourth edition.

For its 4th participation, the goal of the RATP group was to establish itself as the preferred partner of a smarter and more sustainable city. The Group works with start-ups to improve the service it provides to its customers on a daily basis, to invent new businesses and to transform the way it works. In particular by developing the Group’s innovation thanks to the Urbanopolis Innovation Labs network created within the company last September.

RATP Smart Systems responded to the call by presenting its innovation for the Serre-Chevalier ski resort. Last winter, we installed seven terminals BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to dematerialize ski titles. More than 500 skiers used this new technology to trigger the mechanical gates with nearly 10,000 passes. The dematerialization of the use and the act of validation of the package without taking out his smartphone is a world first in this area. The mastery of this technology is very promising for the future because it will allow us to gather, on a smartphone, the entire customer experience and customer relationship. The phone will be both the customer relationship tool, the purchasing tool and the mechanical package.
