Meep, a leading provider of mobility-as–a-service in Southern Europe, has inked a partnership with LISNR, the global leader in proximity verification, to enable contactless authentications for mobility operators and riders.
The collaboration between Meep and LISNR is LISNR’s first major partnership with a MaaS provider this year, as mobility is a key vertical and focus area for the overall growth strategy of LISNR. The relationship between LISNR’s contactless proximity capabilities and Meep’s unique mobile app and platform capabilities will enable both groups to attract bus, train, and transit operators looking for a more robust customer experience.
LISNR’s ultrasonic proximity verification solution can be leveraged for mobile payment and mobile ticketing scenarios, where the high cost of QR code scanners and NFC readers can become obsolete with one complete platform offered by Meep. As MaaS aims to provide the best return value for users, societies, and the environment, a cost effective solution that aims to enable and include online and offline passengers is key to the success of LISNR & Meep.
“LISNR’s technology enhances the mobility ecosystems that Meep creates, making them more widely usable, and therefore, this partnership unlocks tremendous opportunities for American cities” – Guillermo Campoamor, CEO, Meep
As the Mobility as a Service industry is expected to hit nearly $78.5 bn in valuation by 2027, and the proximity payment ecosystem is expected to hit $42.7 bn by 2030, LISNR and Meep are focused on being the leader in this space. As digital transformation trends grow across the globe, and consumer feedback becomes increasingly important, a more inclusive and digital mobility experience will continue to enhance the rider and operator journey.
“Mobility is a key and critical market vertical for LISNR and Meep is a great partner for us to service this massively growing industry. The Meep team communicated to us that LISNR’s ability to over perform current modalities, QR code and NFC, with a more secure, cost efficient modality, with flexible range will enable operators and end riders to create a frictionless and seamless journey, all while gaining loyalty from entry to exit, with a complete and easy to use platform. LISNR’s ability to operate in offline environments will allow ecosystem leaders to provide an inclusive and accessible means of ticket entry and payment, which further enables LISNR to be well positioned in playing an integral role in the MaaS landscape.” -Eric Allen, CEO, LISNR
