TORONTO, ON, MAY 11, 2022 — Modaxo Inc. (“Modaxo”), a global technology organization focused on moving the world’s people, today announced that it has expanded its investment in mobile ticketing and customer engagement technology through the acquisition of Corethree.

Based in Watford, UK, Corethree has been a leading provider of mobile ticketing technology to the public transport industry since 2010. The company’s platform processes over £7m a week in client mobile ticket sales and enables millions of customers to purchase mobile tickets and have them securely delivered to their device.

“Spurred on by passenger demand, cashless payment options such as contactless cards and mobile apps are quickly overtaking cash transactions for many transport operators,” said Laurent Eskenazi, Modaxo’s Head of Europe/UK. “We are thrilled to have Corethree and its team join Modaxo, helping operators to embrace this trend and deliver to their customers a turnkey mobile ticketing solution.”

Corethree provides technologies to some of the UK’s largest transport operators including First Group, Transport for London (TfL), Lothian, and Transport for Greater Manchester, (TfGM) amongst many others. The company has won multiple awards for its ticketing system and supports the growing niche of active transport, providing the mobile platform for Transport for London’s (TfL) Cycle Hire scheme.

“This is an exciting and exponential move forward in the evolution of Corethree and I am very proud to see this announcement made,” commented Founder & Corethree CEO Ashley Murdoch.

Corethree’s solutions become part of Modaxo’s overall mobile ticketing portfolio offered through Trapeze Group in Europe and the UK.
