The French branch of Hectronic is already working with the PayPoint product PayByPhone in several cities in France. PayByPhone is a cashless payment service that enables customers to pay by mobile, smartphone or over the Internet.
In the cities of Vanves, Chaville and Beauvais, Hectronic France has attached NFC tags to a total of 150 Citea parking meters and ticket machines. This will make it possible for users who have an NFC-equipped smartphone to make payments easily and without the need for any cash. Further joint projects are planned for the next few months.
The cooperation enables cities to offer additional user-friendly payment options to users of parking ticket machines. The partnership between Hectronic France and PayByPhone is very promising. Cities that have already taken advantage of this option are very enthusiastic about cashless payment for parking tickets.
Hectronic France and PayByPhone, who were previously competitors in this market, have now joined forces to the advantage of all their Clients.
