TicketOffice

Product description

TicketOffice – the digital ticket counter

Multiple distribution channels = one solution

TicketOffice is highQ’s digital “ticket counter” – a true all-in-one solution for the efficient and transparent management of season ticket holders, occasional passengers and school transportation. This versatile fare management system supports all types of travel authorisation, whether paper ticket, chip card or smartphone ticket. It also supports all the usual sales channels, from the customer centre back office, service points and web portals to the connection of corporate customer passes, job, student and school student tickets.

Users particularly appreciate how easy TicketOffice is to use and its many practical functions. One example is the flexible import of contract data for subscription management, such as student inventory lists that are not particularly standardised, or the provision of inventory exports and statistics.

TicketOffice is already in use in 30 public transport associations and 50 other transport companies throughout Germany. Because the system can be scaled as required, it is suitable for both small bus companies and large associations with hundreds of thousands of customers. The system can be used for rail or bus, metropolitan or rural areas, chip card, paper ticket or online ticket. TicketOffice offers the ideal solution for everything. In addition, the software is fully compatible with the nationwide standard eTicket Deutschland. Several users are already operating a cross-network check-in/check-out system on this basis.

Functions

Advantages

of TicketOffice

Receivables management

With its multi-level receivables management, TicketOffice supports all relevant booking processes, from SEPA direct debit, cost unit billing, payment reminders and multi-level dunning to the transfer of collections. The preliminary check is carried out via automated optional credit check requests. The optional fare.logiQ modules EDB (revenue database) and differentiated EAV (revenue splitting) complement the billing-related workflow. The results database module ensures that you always have a detailed overview of your revenues. An SAP interface integrated in TicketOffice can transfer this data directly to general ledger accounting. This automatic process increases efficiency and reduces costs.

  • Automatic chargebacks
  • SEPA CAMT messages
  • RLS DTI or MT940

References

“I got to know highQ from the very successful collaboration concerning TicketOffice, KOSE-P and WEB-Clearing-P. highQ was always extremely competent and punctual in all projects. It’s also a pleasure to work with a technology company where results orientation is not solely related to the quarterly report.”
