Scheidt & Bachmann and IVU form sales collaboration

Mönchengladbach and Berlin, 06.11.2014 - Scheidt & Bachmann’s Fare Collection Systems division and IVU Traffic Technologies AG have agreed to form a worldwide sales partnership and bundle together the strengths of both companies: Scheidt & Bachmann provides comprehensive systems for fare management while IVU offers IT-solutions for fleet management (ITCS), passenger information and driv-er-operated vending systems.

Through joint collaboration, both companies can now offer complete systems, ranging from ticket sales and validation, access control, on-board computer, and control centers to dy-namic information at bus stops and on mobile devices. This is based on integrated data and information management for their customers.

As a first result of this collaboration the companies demonstrated a farebox which integrates both companies’ systems at APTA Expo in Houston, Texas, from 13th to 15th of October 2014. This solution combines ticketing functions such as ticket sales & validation with com-prehensive ITS functionalities.

“With IVU AG we have the perfect partner to expand our expertise in ticketing with superb fleet control and passenger information systems,” says Matthias Augustyniak, Managing Director at Scheidt & Bachmann. “We look forward to working together and we are confi-dent our customers will achieve maximum value through our combined strengths,” added Dr Helmut Bergstein, COO of IVU AG. “Two such strong partners are perfectly equipped to collaborate on the international market.”
