France: Sqills and SNCF TER Transform Rail Travel for Passengers
Sqills, along with its partner Wiremind, has been chosen to be the new partner of SNCF TER (Regional rail) to deliver the proven S3 Passenger SaaS solution for reservation. Coupled with the CAYZN revenue management solution, this will provide a new range of services to TER passengers travelling between regional urban stops.
S3 Passenger SaaS Solution
SNCF TER chose Sqills S3 Passenger after an extensive market survey and tender and as part of its “CAP TER2020” strategy. The focus with CAP TER2020 is to differentiate TER’s regional transportation offer and add a complete self-service travelling experience for long-distance TER trains.
The proven and flexible structure of the S3 Passenger product with thousands out-of-the-box features and a interactive user story market, a full product offering and flexible implementation, documentation and competitive economics, grounded SNCF TER decision to engage in this partnership with Sqills and its leading portfolio of services to meet the regional rail inventory, reservation and dynamic pricing needs.
The GO live of the S3 Passenger SaaS solution is expected by end of 2020. The implementation of this platform is one of the major innovation and modernisation projects in the rail industry in France. It is managed and implemented by SNCF TER acting as system integrator during the project to design top-of-the-range services with and for the French Regions and regional customers.
