DataKrat Corporation and Vendotek integrated payments by ski passes and bank cards at ski resorts


DataKrat Corporation has integrated VENDOTEK POS terminals into the Bars Payment and Access System for ski resorts. Turnstiles are equipped with a long-range antenna manufactured by DataKrat. The new solution allows you to pay for the ascent with a bank card if you do not have a ski pass or have run out of money on it.


This solution was implemented at the Malka ski resort in Sheregesh. A long-range antenna with a reading range of up to 40 cm allows you to get to the lift via a ski pass based on NXP ICODE chips. And the presence of a contactless POS terminal from VENDOTEK adds the functionality of a paid pass – by bank card.


"In connection with the coronavirus pandemic, products that minimize contacts between people are gaining more and more relevance. This solution allows the visitor to immediately receive the service, bypassing communication with the cashier, even to receive a ski pass. Thanks to the implementation of deferred online payment technology, the payment speed at the turnstile is about 2 seconds, which practically does not differ from the passage through the ski pass, and the use of Smart watches for presenting a bank card makes this solution as convenient as possible for the visitor," said Mikhail Sukhorosov, Head of the DataKrat Corporation’s Software Development Center.

Multipass implements innovative Account-Based Ticketing system with Vendotek сEMV validators


The Multipass System and Terminal Technologies announced a partnership to deploy innovative Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) system equipped with Vendotek T validators. Multipass is a new generation of the Automatic Fare Collection System based on ABT platform, a ‘ticketless’ way for people to travel on public transport. ABT with Vendotek cEMV validator enables passengers to simply tap or scan a secure token, linked to an account in the back office to make a journey.


Multipass differs from traditional card-based schemes, because the business rules and fare calculation are managed in the back-office and the fare is calculated and billed after the travel is complete. This means that the fare-media used to tap in and out of the system is nothing more than a unique identifier for the customer that is linked to their account. More about Multipass System


“Multipass has created an innovative Automatic Fare Collection System based on ABT platform that does not require tickets. Now you just need to tap or scan a secure token and start your journey. Multipass find Vendotek T as best quality, price performance validator on the market. There is not any product close to it," said Andrey Kostin, CEO of Multipass System.


“In the future, smart cities will become green and clean oases of comfort, where residents can easily reach any area. An excellent combination of Multipass AFC with Vendotek T validators allows passengers to forget about tickets. Thanks to the innovations of our partner, public transport will become more convenient, and fare collection will become easier,” said Igor Sukhostavsky, CEO & Founder of Terminal Technologies Group.
