Making standards happen - a world first for Almex and ITSO

(PresseBox) (Hannover, ) Almex is pleased to announce the award of full certification for the Optima electronic ticket machine

(ETM). Not only is Almex the first ETM supplier in the UK to achieve this important milestone, it is the first in the World. A delighted John Clarkson, Almex’s UK General Manager said:

“ITSO was first introduced as a concept almost ten years ago and the achievement of full certification is testimony to the hard work of my colleagues both in Hanover and Swindon. We knew we were capable of reaching ITSO’s 31st May deadline and the last couple of months have seen much frenzied but focussed activity. This is a significant milestone not just for Almex, but also for ITSO. It confirms us as market leader in the development of solutions for the public transport industry.”

The Full Compliance Certificate was presented on Tuesday 5 June 2007 during the annual Moving On
Conference in Cardiff.
