MobiGuider Software

This is the core of the AFC system and is an internationally deployed and preferred AFC System in multiple international BRT and Mass Transit Systems (MRT) and ensures the best standard management of the entire transactional process for fare and passenger transactional information collection, secure transmission, recording and processing.

MobiGuider is the controlling software managing all AFC services in both the Front Office and Back Office environments and securing and managing the actual field device hardware.

The system hardware, such as passenger facing validation equipment (validators), boasts ‘built for purpose’ manufacturing standards, specifically for buses and other mobile environments and can withstand the harsh operating environment of bus and other MRT systems, such as vibration, temperature extremes, varying voltage power supply, as well as public use. In addition, the equipment has a high throughput ability, consistently achieving arguably unrivalled reliability, accuracy, and longevity.

Any financial system demands the highest standards of financial and banking compliance and accuracy and performance consistency in its primary function of fare collection. System availability is thus a critical dimension of performance, and TMT provides comprehensive complementary and essential services in terms of preventative and reactive maintenance, high availability, backup and system restoration and general system management.

TMT’s business values and service proposition ensures critical system availability, performance, and an ability to deliver client-focused bespoke solutions. This makes our system more than capable of processing and exceeding Rea Vaya’s daily transactional requirements of over 72 000 average passenger transactions per day and revenue collection exceeding R150 million per year.
