sQuid is partnering MoFlow to launch an online smart card-based ticketing program for Midlands events company Vodbull UK.
Vodbull Ranger Cards are contactless smart cards that are sold preloaded with electronic tickets to some of the largest student events in Birmingham. Once a card is registered, students are able to purchase tickets for future events online. To gain entry to an event, students simply present their smart card to a contactless reader, which indicates to door staff the number of tickets purchased.
Participating venues include Luminar Leisure’s Superclub Oceana, Gatecrasher Birmingham and Walkabout bars.
According to sQuid, the company has been creating cashless payment solutions in educational campuses for some time, but this is the first ticketing scheme that they have introduced.
sQuid hopes to expand the scheme in the future to allow students to budget their whole night out, including paying for taxis, food and drink using their Vodbull Ranger Card.
