Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB), is completely reformating its sales system at present – the end result will be consistent in terms of design and structure across all customer contact points. In Wirecard, ÖBB has a strong partner by its side as it seeks to integrate innovative payment systems and develop new, customised solutions together. The partnership will ensure that payments are made even simpler and quicker for passengers travelling with ÖBB – across all payment channels and with the usual high level of security guaranteed.

Klaus Leven, Manager Marketing & Sales, ÖBB-Personenverkehr AG: “Our goal is to satisfy the new service and mobility requirements of our customers. This includes making it possible for customers to pay using their preferred method – at all times and for all sales channels. In Wirecard, we have found a strong partner, with whom we can work to develop new payment and service options and adapt technological standards.”

Jörg Moller, Executive Vice President Travel & Mobility at Wirecard: “Our partnership with the ÖBB Group is an important step towards the future of rail travel in Europe: payment processes in public transport systems are rapidly evolving. Fast, flexible payment processing and offering passengers additional services relating to their rail travel are key elements of this. We are looking forward to taking this step alongside ÖBB.”
