Paragon ID, a trading name of BemroseBooth Paragon, the smart ticketing and print solution specialist for the mass transit sector, has secured a multi-six figure contract to provide the warehousing and distribution for all ScotRail timetables.

Further building on the number of transport organisations that the company works with, Paragon ID will provide ongoing support for ScotRail as it puts in place an implementation plan that will manage time-critical distribution of timetables for the rail operator.

Richard Farmer, Sales and Marketing Director from Paragon ID, comments: “As part of Paragon ID we are now seen by train operators, such as ScotRail, as much more than a ticket supplier; we are now recognised as a smart technology transition partner, as well as a provider of mission critical print and marketing solutions such as this.”

Sarah McLaughlin, Key Account Director from Paragon ID, comments: “We are very pleased to announce that we have been chosen as the preferred timetable distributor for ScotRail. As a trusted specialist supplier to ScotRail for many years, it’s great to demonstrate that we have the capacity and infrastructure in place to manage a critical service, while making recommendations to improve efficiencies.”

David Waddell from ScotRail comments: “Paragon ID has a strong reputation within the transport sector. Working with many of the TOCs we were able to agree this contract knowing with full confidence that they have the experience and expertise required to deliver against our brief. We look forward to working with the team and to building on the relationship we have in place.”

Supporting the future growth strategy for the business, Paragon ID has extended the portfolio of products and services that it offers to train and bus operators, becoming one of the largest suppliers to the transport sector both in the UK and across the globe.
Paragon ID is a leading supplier of smart products and services including RFID tags, smart cards and tickets, contact and contactless cards in addition to be being the preferred ticket supplier of the UK and Republic of Ireland rail networks.

The business acquired Buralls InfoSmart in June 2017, one of the few companies certified to produce ITSO smart cards in the UK. This strategic acquisition allows the business to launch ITSO approved smart products and services into the sector. As one of the preferred suppliers to the UK rail network, Paragon ID will support the transition to smart ticketing as well as expanding the offering into the broader transportation sector.
