Texas, the new nerve center of the technology industry
Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Tesla, Oracle…several large companies leave the Silicon Valley heading to Texas. Having become a real hub for tech companies, Texas presents many opportunities for Famoco, especially in the transportation sector. Texas is also the second economic power in the USA after California with a GDP of 1.9 trillion dollars, which places the State of Texas ahead of Canada and South Korea.
Due to the aging urban infrastructure, the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) supports Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The US DOT is also deploying a national investment of $ 25 billion to modernize the transportation network and improve the customer experience by favoring contactless payment and “Mobility Payment Integration” (MPI).The latter concept refers to allowing users to pay for multiple modes of transport under the same digital roof.
Famoco sells Android ticket validators FX915 and FX925 which accept several payment methods: contactless bank cards, NFC cards and paper and mobile barcodes (QR Codes).
Famoco mobile devices are also used by merchants as part of their professional activity and make it possible to respond to many mobility issues and to digitize field operations (such as order and inventory management, loyalty programs, payment.)
America: a market of opportunities
Famoco already has a few customers under its belt, such as :
–Metrolinx in Toronto who deployed the Famoco validator for an Open Payment ticketing solution in their transportation network
–Coniq has digitized its loyalty program in its partner stores using Famoco Android devices
