Bangkok Smartcard System (BSS) has announced a partnership with Australia’s Vix ERG for the design and delivery of a smart card clearing house solution for micropayments in Bangkok, Thailand.
“The system will initially provide support for an integrated payments solution for the Bangkok Mass Transit System Company Limited (BTSC) and Bangkok Metro Company Limited (BMCL) transit systems. Over time the system will be extended to provide support for more transit modes as well as other micropayments in Bangkok,” said Nelson Leung, Executive Director of BSS.
Vix ERG ERO Steve Gallagher says the solution will also impact Thailand’s retail, tourism and service industry sectors.
The clearing house solution is based upon Vix ERG’s MASS system, which has been implemented in 11 cities in five countries around the world, including Beijing, China, where the system currently processes more than 9 million transactions per day, according to BSS.
