The Paris area transportation public company -the RATP-, which transports more than 10 million people every day, has chosen Ingenico, a leading provider of payment solutions, for managing its future centralized payment transactions system.
Ingenico will operate this service from its multi-channel high availability transaction platform Axis NG on a 24/24 - 7/7 basis. Enabling its millions daily passengers to purchase their transportation ticket more rapidly, easily and securely is an absolute priority for the RATP (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens). That's the reason why the 6th biggest city transportation company worldwide has chosen the Ingenico solution, which combines groundbreaking terminals and the Axis NG centralised transactions platform.
Already used by hundreds of French and foreign merchants, Axis NG is the worldwide standard reference for centralized payment transaction solution. In 2009 -as every year-, dozens of large and middle-size retailers have chosen Ingenico for managing their card payment transactions.
Several criterias have guided the RATP's choice to Ingenico: a unique PCI-DSS certified end-to-end securing, along with last generation PCI-PED 2.0 certified terminals, a global awareness based on ground proven reliability and performance, and a recognized experience into project management.
Ingenico will be responsible for operating an infrastructure made of 3,800 PCI-PED certified terminals, 1,000 check readers and the PCI-DSS certified Axis NG platform which is able to manage an expected 50 million transactions per year and to deal with peaks going up to 50 transactions per second.
"We are particularly proud that the RATP has chosen us for managing its entire payment transaction system. Through its choice, we are fully aware that the RATP makes us a partner in its daily commitment toward its users in terms of quality of service, availability and security" said Jacques Behr, Executive Vice-President Retail solutions and vertical markets and Managing director, Ingenico France.
