Arriva contacted Telepen as they needed a solution for recording students, from the University of Nottingham, using their bus routes around the City. They wanted students to be able to present their existing student cards on an Arriva bus and then be able to feed this information back to the university.
At Telepen we pride ourselves on being able to offer bespoke solutions to our customers and were delighted to broaden our client base to include Arriva. Our Sales Account Manager, Kevin Sontag, met with the tech team from Arriva on a number of occasions and developed a bespoke solution repurposing existing hardware and utilising our in house software development team to create new software.
This summer, in time for the start of the new term, 10 Telepen RB2 boxes were installed onto Arriva buses in Nottingham.
