SNCF completes Phase 1 of mobile payment project

Thursday 4 May 2017 | 10:37 AM CET

SNCF and UK-based mobile point-of-sale (MPoS) ECR Retail Systems have completed Phase 1 of a mobile payment solution across SNCF’s entire fleet of trains in France.

The project includes the delivery of nearly 1500 lightweight ECR Go MPoS devices.

More than that, they aim to enable SNCF’s catering providers, Newrest Wagons-Lits, to manage the onboard sale and stock process. ECR says the initial testing stage was successful, demonstrating that the project could support Newrest’s wider payment strategy across 2353 services per month.

The two-phase contract was awarded in April 2015. Phase 1 of the project comprised deployment of 1480 ECR Go handheld devices running ECR’s rail point-of-sale system, RailPos, which will enable staff to carry out sales via cash or card payments while trains are in operation. Phase 2 aims to build on this by enabling Newrest to transition towards a system that automates and improves the current paper-based stock management process, and enables greater control, predictability, traceability and management of stock.
