GlobeSherpa Wins 2014 Juniper Research Future Mobile Award for Mobile Ticketing
GlobeSherpa, a leading provider of secure mobile ticketing and payment software, has been selected by Juniper Research as winner of the firm’s 2014 Future Mobile Award in the mobile ticketing category. The award recognizes the significant contributions GlobeSherpa has made in the mobile ticketing sector as well as the considerable future market impact the company is poised to make.
The Future Mobile Awards are given to companies at the forefront of new developments in Mobile Commerce and are selected by a panel of expert judges based on a number of criteria including product features and user benefits, innovation, commercial partnerships, commercial launches, certification and compliance, and potential future business development.
“We have already seen a pent-up consumer demand for mobile transport ticketing, and thus we believe the prospects are extremely bright for an innovator such as GlobeSherpa,” said Dr. Windsor Holden, panel judge and Head of Forecasting & Consultancy at Juniper Research. “The company’s Trip Tools uses beacon technologies to transmit real-time travel information and other contextual details, while its Rider App enables clear visualization of validation. We were also impressed with its TOMS solution, which allows transit agencies to manage fare product inventory, control dynamic pricing processes, and view system use in real-time.”
“We are delighted to be recognized by Juniper Research as a leader in the global mobile commerce industry,” said Nat Parker, CEO of GlobeSherpa. “Today, transit systems from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. are implementing GlobeSherpa’s award winning platform to enable their riders to use their phone as their fare. Winning this award underscores GlobeSherpa’s commitment to providing the most innovative mobile solutions to the transportation industry around the world.”
GlobeSherpa’s platform includes a Rider Application and eCommerce Website for fast purchase and easy use of mobile tickets by transit riders; a Fare Inspector Application designed to quickly authenticate and verify tickets; and a sophisticated Transaction and Operations Management System (TOMS) back-office analytics software that allows transit operations staff to manage the system through an easy-to-use, yet robust, cloud-based dashboard.
