Sunhill Technologies’ TraviPay makes smartphones smarter
Sunhill Technologies has taken the smartphone to new levels with its latest product – TraviPay.
The name covers travel, information and payment and enables you to use the phone for on- and off-street parking payment, or to order taxis or get information about public transport. Electric car drivers can also use it for payment at charging points.
“We integrated our successful mobile payment applications into this new smartphone app’ with features for a lot of mobility, travel and information services like public transport, parking, taxi and e-mobility,” said Jan Luhr, Sunhill Technologies product and business development manager.
“This is all about mobility with just a click on your mobile phone.”
Sunhill’s international reach has been extended following the recent partnering deal with carrier billing-based mobile payments firm Boku.
In future, customers using Sunhill payment apps will have parking charges added to their mobile phone bill.
Sunhill Technologies software is also at the heart of a trial in Germany that could result in a step change in the efficiency of traffic wardens and a tougher time for parking violators.
Under its Digitalisation of the Parking Business programme, drivers would log their licence plate details with the parking authority. Images of licence plates on parked cars can be captured from a passing vehicle and instantly checked to see if they are authorised to park.
