Popularity of mobile tickets is growing

Passengers in Zlín and Otrokovice have quickly got used to mobile tickets, the sales of which have been growing each month. In January 2015, the public transport company in Zlín – Otrokovice sold 7,230 mobile tickets.

“Our presumption that mobile tickets would be especially popular among the young, who can no longer imagine their daily lives without using their phones not only for calling, but also for sending messages, taking photos, searching their position, using internet banking, searching the transport schedule and surfing the web, has been confirmed. Buying tickets for public transport is just another of these services,” said Josef Kocháň, director of the public transport company in Zlín – Otrokovice.

     “We are happy that the public transport company’s management put their trust into our hands again.

  • Company ERIKA, a.s. changed to GLOBDATA a.s.

    Praha, July 1, 2015 – The company ERIKA, a.s. changed its name to GLOBDATA a.s. Apart from changing the trademark, the corporate identity was also completely transformed, including the company’s mercantile and advertising printed matter, logo and website. The new name reflects the company’s goal to introduce its services and products on foreign markets. The creative concept was done by Flamesite, mercantile goods and the website were designed by FG Forrest.

    “There were two reasons for rebranding the company. Firstly, the original name ERIKA was created in 1997 and after 18 years on the market, the time has come to emphasise that we are primarily a provider of electronic payment services and that our solutions are of global character, i.e. that they can be used anywhere in the world. This is closely linked to the second reason – our ambition to penetrate foreign markets,” says Pavel Zákravský, managing director of GLOBDATA a.s.
