We process over 24 billion transactions every year.
We are transforming the traveler experience. By advancing developments in data communications and solving complex technical challenges, we are providing convenience and simplicity to travelers. Whether it’s paying directly from a contactless bankcard, NFC-enabled mobile phone or a pre-funded transit account – it’s about choice.
Our revenue management solutions are future-ready and easily scalable, including individual card-based, account-based, or open payment "pay as you go" options - or a combination of two or all three. Our systems address the accessibility and equity concerns of all the communications your agency serves, focusing on simplified and seamless travel choices.
Urban Mobility Back Office
With the growth of multimodal travel, the performance of an intelligent urban transportation system depends on the seamless integration of diverse components. At Cubic, we accomplish this with our Urban Mobility Back Office, an open architecture revenue management system that allows our customers to manage complex, multimodal transportation networks while offering travelers a single account to manage all their travel needs.
Each solution is flexible to support evolving payment technologies while allowing transportation operators to choose from a mix of products and services that reduce operational costs. Additionally, each system accommodates the growing demand for integration with third-party service providers.
Provides support for customer-assisted service centers and call centers, IVR, website, mobile, and other self-service portals. Secure, role-based access to customer data ensures protection of PII data, and an open use case-based API is provided to enable our customers to choose alternative CRM applications.
Offers comprehensive automated financial accounting support. A comprehensive clearinghouse rules engine supports complex apportionment and financial business agreements, with an open API for automated general ledger postings providing the flexibility to work with an accounting provider of your choice.
Ensures data security accuracy and traceability in a data heavy environment. System data is required for time sensitive functionality and for standard reporting on ridership, revenue and other operational functions. It is also valuable for improving service and optimizing operations, facilitating future planning and decision making, and allows our customers to spot trends and act accordingly.
We developed account-based system architecture to keep pace with rapidly evolving technologies and the demand for multimodal integration. Instead of storing information on the traveler’s smart card, account-based systems move the intelligence formerly stored on fare devices in the field to the back office, along with fare policy, products and pricing. This makes it easier for agencies to manage changes and provides greater security and convenience for customers by being able to manage their account online.
Think of it as Amazon for transportation.
Open Payment / EMV
We launched our first open payment “pay as you go” across London’s extensive transit network, beginning with buses in 2012 and rolling out across the rail systems in 2014. It’s a model offering travelers the option to use their existing contactless bankcard – whether physical or on their smartphone – and helps agencies better service infrequent travelers, such as tourists or occasional transit users. Our systems support EMV chip technology, the global standard for bankcards.
Our Cubic Mobile Suite offers a portable, fully integrated ecosystem of transportation information and payment capabilities, powerful mobile applications, and supporting back-end systems that enrich the travel experience for both travelers and service providers.
All apps enable or support multimodal transport, providing travelers with seamless payment capabilities and information from a single account, offering merchants a simple and convenient way to sell tickets, and empowering inspectors with the ability to check ticket validity and process mobile device-powered ticket purchases.
Our data-driven systems ensure data security, accuracy and integrity. This gives agencies maximum value from their data through more efficient planning, insight into optimizing operations, and a better understanding of how their customers use the system. The data talks when it comes to creating a great customer experience – and one that can be repeated day after day.
