Zwickau: We just managed to win a great order and will install 29 mobile ticket vending machines in the vehicles of the Städtische Verkehrsbetriebe (Municipal Transport Services) of Zwickau (SVZ). These automats had also been subject of a European-wide call for tenders and we managed to convince in this quite demanding bidding procedure. By the end of 2016, the SVZ customers shall be enabled to purchase their tickets easily and rapidly.
Mr Seidel from SVZ in Zwickau is very happy to continue the long-lasting collaboration with krauth - which had started with on-board computers - with the realisation of this larger project. Mr Seidel states that, due to the positive experience with krauth technology so far, he has not doubt at all that the common project realisation will proceed without any problems. He is already looking forward to having these vending machines in the SVZ vehicles.
The modern automates are not only able to process coins and banknotes, but also 2D-barcodes as per VDV core application. Part of the system solution is the printing unit PDM170 developed. This way we are able to ensure a reliable and permanent operation for the next 10 years. Together with our backoffice system SMART, this is an excellent basis for future up-to-date ticket selling in Zwickau. Klaus Liedloff, sales coordinator at krauth technology for this project states: "A brilliant start into the year 2016, many thanks to the Zwickau team!"
