Howen MDT Improves Efficiency of Pulic Bus in Africa

Howen partners with local System Integrator to launch E-ticket bus system in Africa. The system is a combination of Howen’s hardware and a local partner’s software.

With the development of the urban public transport system, buses have become one of the primary means of transportation for citizens. However, how to manage the bus fares efficiently has become a headache in Kenitra city, Morocco. 

To tackle this issue, our partner identified opportunities to work with Howen and eventually provide an innovative technology for bus companies with the ideal solution to help them equip with an effective way to manage the bus fares and offer local services based on accurate data for efficient bus transportation.

Howen Solution

Howen, the leading VSS manufacturer, is honored to provide the best mobile data terminal system to empower the local Bus Ticketing Solution. The Howen team customized the MDT for the project and got it highly integrated with the local partner’s self-developed APP.
They are perfectly integrated into one complete system, including geolocation systems, surveillance cameras, and internet services.

Howen MDT also has rich interfaces which support various types of accessories. In this project, the MDT is connecting with a Bluetooth printer and NFC reader, and the passenger needs to swipe the NFC card to get in, and then he will get a receipt. Meanwhile, all data can be collected on the backend server.

Up to now, Howen works with the local partner and has deployed this E-ticket bus system in many countries in Africa and helped them resolve the long-standing public transport inefficiency.
