Mumbai: Ticketgoose has signed its first International associate M/s SPuTT Integrated Services, in Nigeria, marking its foray into emerging markets. M/s SPuTT Integrated Services has invested in the platform that enables SPuTT to offer wide range of bus ticketing solutions, which include online booking to its B2C customers, agent ticket booking platform, and bus operator ticketing platform.
“We faced quite a few challenges in adapting the software to suit the Nigerian circumstances and conditions. But frankly, most of the challenges were conceptual. We have built a platform that is highly adaptable and could easily be executed once the concept was clear. The recent foray that India has made at the African road show has additionally resulted in enquiries from a couple of more countries and hopefully, this will result in some additional adoption. But out immediate goal is to make the Nigerian foray a success” said Arun Athiappan, the CEO of Ticketgoose.
On this occasion, Napoleon Omomila, CEO of SPuTT Integrated Services, added “We are highly excited to associate with Ticketgoose, one of the experts in building online bus ticket booking platform. It was after considerable technical evaluation that we found Ticketgoose platform to be one of the most technologically advanced and adaptable to our requirements.”
Ticketgoose, a pioneer in online ticketing has been revolutionizing the bus ticket booking experience in India ever since the launch in August 2007. With time based filters and available seat position being displayed at the result page itself, Ticketgoose enables quick booking based on users’ past choices. Ticketgoose mobile app provides bus tracking facility using real time locations, enables to share the ticket with family and friends besides providing information on highway motel ranking that is crowd sourced. With more than 1800 operators displaying their inventory on the platform, and over 40 operators using the Ticketgoose platform to integrate their fleet operation, Ticketgoose has been the torchbearer for organising the hitherto unorganised bus industry in the country.
Ticketgoose has recently signed a memorandum of understanding with CMI and will commence the development of high value Intellectual property that brings automated solutions to the bus passenger industry. Arun further added “We are in the process of developing a range of mathematical models along with Chennai Maths Institute for application in the bus ticketing industry. All these can be made available to our partners”
