Accenture (NYSE: ACN) is listed as a “vendor to watch” based on evaluation of
its transportation industry expertise and a focus on mobility in the recently
published Gartner Market Trends: Mobile Ticketing for Public Transportation,
Worldwide, 2012^[1].

The new report assesses the deployment of mobile ticketing and the migration
to open fare systems, two important trends in public transportation. It
examines the opportunities for traditional and nontraditional transport
technology providers that are being generated by these trends.

“Accenture is an industry pioneer, with extensive experience of e-ticketing
and mobility solutions as well as insight into device suppliers, which allows
us to design solutions for both open payments and open architectures,” said
Patrice Massat, global lead for Accenture’s Infrastructure and Transportation
industry group.

The move toward both mobile and open fare management is examined by the
report, as well as the scale of adoption of mobile ticketing. It examines
technology trends and outlines the areas where mobile ticketing can deliver
value in the public transportation industry.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Gartner as we work with our clients to
identify their issues using a strategic research-based approach backed up by
strong technical delivery capabilities that drive better business outcomes,
said Michael J. Wilson, Head of Accenture’s Public Transportation practice in
North America. “Accenture’s public transportation expertise, combined with
experience in implementing large mobility projects involving significant
back-end integration and large-scale deployment – were drivers for our
inclusion in the report.”
