Vivotech powers Cubic EMV reader

Vivotech’s EMV and NFC payments software is now being used in Cubic Transportation Systems’ new Tri-Reader 3 contactless readers, after the two companies signed a licensing and development agreement in 2009.

The Tri-Reader 3 was originally developed by Cubic for Transport for London for its switch away from the current proprietary Oyster card system to accepting open loop contactless debit card payments, and is now being made available worldwide.

“It was important for Cubic to have Vivotech, with a large installed base of readers worldwide and experience in contactless open payments, alongside us in this development process,” says Cubic’s Pradip Mistry. “With their help, we have been able to launch the first fully-accredited reader capable of reading all the major card types in combination with existing closed loop contactless cards and mobile NFC devices, anywhere in the world.”
