Gamatechno Smartcard, especially gtsmart ticketing, is quite to be the center of visitors' attention at the UGM Research Week in Graha Sabha Pramana. They did not hesitate to try gtsmart ticketing and the equipment on display. In fact, because the people were too enthusiastic to take a try, the gtsmart ticketing equipment did not function properly.
“Enthusiasm is quite good. But because there were many people trying it, the equipment did not run yesterday. In addition, a group from SMK Purbalingga intentionally came to our booth, "said Ignatius Dony, Product Branding Marketing and Sales Division, at the exhibition stand, Friday (16/7).
Dony added that gtsmart ticketing so far has been developed since 2005. At least for its application, gtsmart ticketing has been implemented in the Trans Jogja Bus and Pekanbaru Trans Metro.
For the Trans Jogja it has been applied since the year 2007. According to Dony, Gamatechno has distributed about 20 thousand cards/tickets at the Trans Jogja bus stop. "It is spread over 76 the Trans Jogja bus stops, and will be added again in 24 new bus stops," he said.
This Gtsmart ticketing, Dony added, is a system designed to facilitate the management in the transportation sector in form of Smart Mass Transit System (SMTS) with several advantages such as a ariety of tariff mechanism, integrated control systems and remote surveillance, and it supports various vendors, transactions monitoring, as well as data smartcard security.
“The new card for the 24 bus stops even has more advantages, such as anti-corrupt data, more strength and there are some extra features," he said.
He explained that this gtsmart ticketing in the 2007 was awarded the Indonesia ICT Award category of research and development, in addition to Indonesia’s Most Prospective Innovation 2009 in the Business Innovation Award. Gtsmart ticketing is one of the flagship product of Gamatechno besides the university gtsmart, and gtsmart membercard.
