Wizway Solutions partners with Paragon ID
and provides the first global European Platform
for contactless mobile ticketing

 

Wizway Solutions, the French leader in the dematerialization of contactless transit cards and tickets on smartphones, is now offering Transit Authorities and Mobility Operators the whole range of NFC technologies on mobile through its API and platform.

Following the announcement of its industrial partnership with Samsung – the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer- this new agreement enables Wizway Solutions to expand its dematerialization service by also accessing the HCE technology developed by Paragon ID.

Wizway Solutions is the sole industrial player in Europe providing a comprehensive NFC mobile ticketing solution, having access both to hardware security solutions (such as the Secure Element embedded in smartphones or SIM cards) and software security solutions (such as Host Card Emulation compatible with most Android NFC smartphones).

Through its seamless integration of these contactless dematerialization technologies in a complementary way, Wizway Solutions offers the widest range of compatible smartphones and the best solution for travellers and transit authorities both in terms of user experience and security.

Partnering with key international players enables Wizway Solutions to provide a unique offering in Europe to simplify the deployment of mobile contactless solutions for transit operators.

“We are very happy to partner with Paragon ID, a company already recognized for its know-how in transit ticketing, security and successful implementation of HCE solutions. Wizway will widen the scope of its comprehensive industrial platform, to provide contactless mobile ticketing to an even larger number of travelers and transit operators” says Louis Brosse, CEO of Wizway Solutions. 

“Partnering with Wizway is another stepping stone towards offering our customers a complete mobile ticketing solution. We share the same vision of making technology accessible and providing outstanding user experience. Our teams have shown in the last months their ability to create together the best offer in the market relying on Wizway’s unique technology platform and Paragon ID’s strengths in digital & HCE technology” says Clem Garvey, CEO of Paragon ID.
