The ticketing and telematics specialist for public transport

Metric provides public transport corporations with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for all ticketing and telematics needs. Mobile or stationary, bus or rail, train station or airport, Höft & Wessel supplies individually customised solutions – speedily and reliably.

Metric is amongst the market leaders in Germany, the United Kingdom, and in Switzerland. More than 10,000 ticket vending machines in long-distance and commuter train stations and more than 25,000 ticketing systems in buses and trains across Europe bear testimony to the reliability of solutions. Devices and systems from the product brand Almex of Höft & Wessel can also be found in South Africa and other countries outside Europe, however. The name Almex has been synonymous for ticketing on an international scale since as early as 1946.

Thanks to its proven products and open standards, Höft & Wessel provides its customers with a high degree of investment protection. ITSO, VDV-KA, Calypso, DAX and CUSS are the primary foundations of the solutions on offer. Metric proactively helps to shape these standards; accordingly, the company commits itself to an open and standardised system world.

Metric solutions excel on account of their seamless integration into existing customer systems. This saves operating costs in the long term and ensures speedy, effective processes.

The key success factor is simple operation of the systems by users. In implementing its hardware and software solutions, Höft & Wessel relies on and favours the universal design approach. The resulting high degree of acceptance of the solutions by passengers and personnel ensures customer satisfaction and low operating costs.

Metric manages its pan-European und international activities from Hannover, the principal location. In the United Kingdom, the company is represented in a large location in Swindon in the west of London, as well as in Glasgow.
