Project referenceWeb/Mobile Development of a commercial offer in the Rail Transport area
Our client, a rail transport operator, wanted to be the first to provide a low-cost business offer that was simple and free of hidden costs for its users via the Internet.
ALTEN took on responsibility for the development of an e-commerce portal for ticket sales in its Sèvres Development Centre.
It developed both the marketing editorial website and also the extranet for controlling operational management of trains, the middleware necessary for mobile access, and the mobile applications for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile.
ALTEN also took charge of the design and architecture, the choice of technology and the development-test-acceptance activities.
Thanks to ALTEN’s assistance, our client obtained a robust and reliable platform, enabling it to offer its users the world’s cheapest, high-speed offer, while preserving the fundamentals of railway safety. The project also helped unearth a technology partner for the long term in ALTEN – perfectly familiar with its issues and business lines.
