Introducing The Apollo Platform
Apollo is The Hub smart ticketing and payment software platform. It cost-effectively integrates with any back office and any traditional internet connected customer device, e.g. mobile, handheld, tablet, PC, kiosk, and the growing networks of smart devices referred to as The Internet of Things (IoT). Apollo can be customised using different combinations of her software to meet the digital requirements of any of the following markets: transit; retail; hospitality and financial services. It is backward compatible with most legacy systems as well as future proofed for a world of new digital transformation.
The Apollo Admin Console ‘THE COMMANDER’
Core to Apollo is a central admin console known as ‘The Commander’. It remotely manages any networked device and provides all location based software functionality 24/7 and in real-time. All hardware used is globally sourced and locally assembled, at which point The Hub loads the chosen Apollo applications onto the device and hosts the solution in our secure cloud based data warehousing facility. The Hub supports and maintains these networked devices under an agreed service level agreement (SLAs), using ‘The Commander’ console for both software and hardware maintenance by Esteem field engineers located nationwide.
One Apollo Platform - Ten Engines
The Hub Apollo platform is powered by ten independent and customisable software engines. These can be partly or fully, integrated with any chosen hardware device in order to deliver and manage the desired end-to-end customer solution. Critically Apollo ensures that all content and functions are delivered across all channels making the platform truly omnichannel.
