Ultrasonic payment authentication solution LISNR has scored another win in the mobility sector after signing a deal with Shuttl, India’s largest office commute service provider, to integrate its tech on Shuttl buses.
LISNR’s contactless authentication and verification software allows Shuttl passengers to verify their tickets via smartphone and removes the need for a traditional paper ticket or QR code. Shuttl operates across three countries using more than 1,300 buses, which is why it’s backed by Amazon, Toyota, Silicon Valley investor Sequoia Capital, and others.
“An ‘assured seat’ is one of our key offerings for consumers and it makes accurate boarding authentication in noisy on-road conditions critical to our business. LISNR has proved to be a reliable solution for our need and scale,” said Vivek Surie, Chief Business Officer of Shuttl.
This is the third mobility integration LISNR has rolled out globally. Most recently, LISNR secured a deal with BusUp, one of Europe’s leading commuter bus platforms. The company believes the shift to wireless authentication is a “new normal” for the mobility industry.
“Shuttl is the premier office shuttle service in all of India. They very much understood the importance of ultrasonic as an invaluable means of touchless authentication. We’re excited to partner with them as they continue to expand their international footprint,” said Eric Allen, CEO of LISNR.
