EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH MASTERCARD
Mastercard is enhancing its Smart Cities strategy with the Olympus platform
With more than half of the population living in urban areas, mobility is one of the biggest contemporary obstacles. Mastercard, whose payment method is used almost everywhere in the world, has seen the mobility problem worsen over the years, based on the analysis of transaction data worldwide.
For Henri Dewaerheijd, Mastercard Country Manager Belux, this collaboration with Olympus is a new chapter in their Smart Cities strategy: “We have been working with global cities such as Singapore and London for years to make them smarter and to relieve congestion, thereby improving the quality of life of their inhabitants. But we are convinced that the Smart Cities concept is not a privilege for metropolises only. Thanks to this Belgian partnership with Olympus, we also meet the needs specific to Belgium. This philosophy, which has already been successfully implemented abroad, can also be applied seamlessly to the mobility challenges facing Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels. Mastercard has already developed a number of concrete solutions that make the lives of consumers easier. For example, mobile payments have been established in the London metro for years already, and with the card-on-file system users can buy a metro ticket with a single click with their smartphone.“.
For Koen Van De Putte, Managing Director at Olympus, cooperation with Mastercard is an important strategic step in the expansion of the Olympus Mobility Platform in the rapidly changing mobility market: “Innovative payment technologies with smartphones such as contactless payment that allows us to offer integrated solutions to cities where forms of public transport, car drivers and subsystems around cars, scooters, foot bikes and bikes are springing up like mushrooms. Our aim is to give cities the opportunity to tackle mobility in a smarter manner, and to make the commuting experience more enjoyable for their residents. Moreover, this initiative in Antwerp also fits perfectly into the ‘Smart Ways to Antwerp’ programme.”
OFFICE BUS BECOMES MULTIMODAL
As of September, nine new bus lines are added to transport employees to and from their offices in Antwerp or Brussels.
These office buses are equipped with specific facilities, such as a coffee machine, table space and power points. The idea is that employees can already start to work while they are on their way to work.
OfficeOnWheels, the organisation behind this project, concluded a collaboration agreement with Olympus Mobility to integrate the office bus ticketing into its mobility platform and the accompanying Olympus app.
Employees can therefore reserve their place in the office bus after obtaining approval from their employer, but companies can also opt to activate the full functionality of the Olympus app, so that their employees can use the Olympus app to choose for a train, De Lijn bus, tram, metro, shared bike or shared car with a simple push of a button. That makes life easy when you miss the bus.
Olympus mobility budget platform is becoming the norm in the mobility sector
The Belgian lease companies ALD Automotive, Belfius Auto Lease, KBC Autolease and Volkswagen D’Ieteren Finance, as well as smaller partners such as Xyrus fleet and Westlease, all use the Olympus “Mobility as a service” platform. OfficeOnWheels is now integrating its offer into the Olympus range that these companies have available.
The digital solution that the Olympus mobility platform provides does not only supply public transport tickets and access to shared transport on a single invoice, but also meets the needs of cafeteria plans and mobility budgets through its multimodal approach.
