DIGICEL Fiji has teamed up with global e-ticketing company Mikroelektronika specialist Jan Storek to install state-of-the-art e-ticketing machines in Fiji's buses.

Mr Storek, who is in the country to monitor the machine installation, said the Czech Republic-based company specialised solely in e-ticketing for the automotive industry and had big plans for the Fiji bus industry.

"Quality is our number one priority and the systems as well as their installation are a very high priority for us too," Mr Storek explained in an interview yesterday.

"E-ticketing is our company's main goal and has been for more than 20 years, where we've used it in about 35 countries all around the globe."

He said a number of countries the company had worked in showed very similar climate aspects to Fiji.

"Fiji conditions are very similar to Central America and South America — they have similar types of buses and similar types of conditions — the salty air, the Pacific Ocean and so on, there are several countries with very similar conditions to Fiji that we've already installed these in.

"What we are using is a high European standard, so what we've made is coming from great experience collected throughout the installations over the past 20 years."

Meanwhile, Digicel Fiji commercial director Andrew Skelton said safety was paramount for the company.

"One of my biggest things was the safety aspect of the buses here and that's one of the main reasons we've gone with Mikroelektronika because they've done this before in countries with very similar conditions to Fiji."
