Ixxi releases its 2016 Annual Report
These achievements include the 16% increase in consolidated revenue and the strong increase of the number of employees (75 in 2014, 115 in 2015 and 200 in 2016). The year 2017 was also marked by innovation, which remains, of course, one of our priorities. We focus primarily on the new services that can be provided through "Big Data" and the dematerialisation of tickets in the field of ticketing. At the level of passenger information, we work on the indoor/outdoor guidance of travelers through virtual reality or augmented reality. Finally, we have launched a major reflection on the fleet management of the future. We are engaged in an innovative software development program on ticketing products, passenger information and an operating aid system of more than 6 million euros.
Ticketing system for the Abidjan lagoon shuttle
The international expansion of Ixxi is accelerating with a second contract in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivoiry Coast. Following a first assistance mission to optimize the ticketing operation of its new transport service, Citrans has entrusted Ixxi with the complete installation of the ticketing system for its lagoon shuttles.
Citrans is a new private lagoon transport company, created and managed by Zoumana Bakayoko, who will soon operate a fleet of several bus-buses in Abidjan. Ixxi will be responsible for implementing the entire future lagoon transport ticketing system. With this new contract, Ixxi is positioned in this region, where the company intends to continue its development. Abidjan, considered the cultural crossroads of western Africa, is experiencing strong growth characterized by major industrialization and urbanization. The Ivorian government, which has the will to promote alternative means of transport in order to reduce urban congestion in the city, relies in particular on the development of lagoon transport.
