SWITZERLAND: Scheidt & Bachmann has developed a Swiss Tourism & Attractions in-app ‘Mini Program’ for public transport operators who are targeting tourists from Asia where the WeChat platform is widely used.

Traveller can use their mobile devices to purchase and receive tickets for services including the Glacier Express and the Jungfrau and Gornergrat mountain railways, reserving seats and accessing operators’ online shops.

Real-time synchronisation avoids overbooking, and future plans include expansion to offer services from restaurants and shops.
