BusUp, the #1 corporate bus commuter management platform in the E.U. announces their integration of LISNR’s ultrasonic technology platform to enable contactless mobile boarding pass authentication. LISNR’s ultrasonic technology enables contactless “Person Present” authentication and transactions across numerous mobility and retail commerce experiences that require contactless fulfillment. In the “new normal” where contactless methods are needed at distances greater than what NFC or QR can provide, LISNR is proving to be the safest and most seamless option for merchants as shown in this partnership with BusUp.
“Incorporating LISNR technology into our on-boarding process is a real breakthrough for BusUp. Thanks to LISNR we can offer our daily passengers with an even faster and safer contactless check-in on board.” – Rui Stoffel, CEO and co-founder of BusUp
LISNR’s frictionless solution will prove invaluable for BusUp’s extensive list of clients that include Siemens, Accenture, Louis Vitton and Cognizant amongst others. While the Coronavirus brought most forms of shared transportation to a halt, BusUp has taken a proactive approach in selecting a safe and seamless solution.
“A recent survey showed that 88% of BusUp users feel safe or very safe with BusUp. By incorporating LISNR ultrasound technology, we are confident that we will be able to improve these excellent results.” – Thibaud Kistler, CEO USA
Priding themselves on incorporating the most advanced technology for their customers, BusUp saw LISNR as a safer and more efficient solution to QR code. They recognized LISNR’s technology as the market leader for reasons such as safety, efficiency & ability to function without an internet connection. Safety for the riders and drivers through contactless authentication. Efficiency and speed to better eliminate queues and ensure less reading errors. The fact that the technology works without an internet connection was imperative since BusUp is a global company providing services in areas with less than stable internet connection, especially in LatAm where they are currently operating in Brazil and Peru.
“BusUp is a perfect use case for our contactless, “person present” authentication. They are a prominent corporate transportation provider in the E.U. and U.S. for a reason. They work with some of the biggest brands to help ensure their most valuable asset, their employees, have a safe commute to the workplace. We’re excited to be an integral part in making sure that process stays reliable, safe and seamless in these “new normal” times.” – Eric Allen, CEO LISNR
As BusUp continues to expand globally, LISNR will continue to play an essential part of their contactless authentication process. Overall LISNR has seen contactless authentication and transactions skyrocket in many different verticals like mobility (transportation + delivery) and retail (scan pay & go, BOPIS, curbside pickup). According to McKinsey contactless services have seen a rise, and many consumers intend to continue using methods like self checkout (79%) + BOPIS (64%) after the pandemic subsides.1. With universal safety regulations recommending distances greater than what incumbent solutions like QR Code or NFC technology are effectively able to carry out, LISNR’s ultrasonic proximity platform is proving to be a stronger & safer alternative for these new times.
LISNR’s ultrasonic ‘data-over-sound’ technology enables contactless proximity verification and authentication across commerce experiences for merchants, financial service providers, and mobility companies. Today, multiple Fortune 100 companies trust LISNR to power data transmission & authentication between devices. Founded in 2012, LISNR is located in Oakland, CA and Cincinnati, OH. Major investors include Visa, Intel, Jump Capital, NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Mercury Fund, R/GA, and Synchrony Financial.
