A series of supplier meetings were arranged to select the best team of suppliers. The Consultant then negotiated discounts with suppliers to ensure the project remained within budget. The solution was then built to plan and as per the requirements using a Mifare 4k contactless card.


Our Clients Results

The OneCard was delivered to budget and on time. Additional benefits were identified which enable full Return On Investment inside 30 month as opposed to the predicted 3 years. The card was well received by the citizens who put the council under pressure to quickly add more services.
