Our challenge

Sales is a primary process of any public transport company. The complexity of sales is increasing dramatically due to increasing competition and changing consumer expectations.

Nowadays S3 Passenger is used by a great many more international transport companies. These include leading carriers such as Eurostar, VIA Rail and SJ Swedish Rail. In countries like France, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and even Canada, customers buy their train and bus tickets through our software. For the position of Business Consultant (Trainee), this means you will be travelling internationally on a regular basis to visit (new) customers.
