Datategy has just signed a partnership with TICE to deploy a fraud prediction model.

A key local player in the mobility sector, TICE (Transports Intercommunaux Centre Essonne) is increasing its actions to fight fraud on the network as effectively as possible.

After strengthening its field teams with the hiring of new controllers and following the signing of the Local Security Contract on 4 May 2018, illustrating the collaboration with government services, TICE is focusing on the need to reduce the number of fraudsters, whether active (absence of a ticket) or passive (failure to validate).

To this end, TICE and DATATEGY met.

DATATEGY, a consulting and expertise company in Data Science, designs, develops and markets a predictive platform for fighting fraud based on 100% cloud-based artificial intelligence technologies.

This solution will enable the deployment of control agents at the right stations and at the right times.

"This is a great opportunity to further demonstrate the effectiveness of the OctoCity® solution. A first in France. Given the importance of the TICE network and its commitment to innovation, we are very proud that our solution has been selected by TICE. It has been entirely developed in Ile-De-France by our engineers specialised in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. We have other deployments elsewhere in the world, so it is only natural that we are particularly pleased with a deployment in our region. With this deployment, we want to create a precedent with the best possible results in order to spread throughout the region with other operators. Let's keep in mind that transport fraud costs more than 1 million euros a day in the IDF region; we are pleased that the region has participated in the financing of this project." Analyses Mehdi CHOUITEN, CEO of DATATEGY.

"We are delighted with this innovative and promising partnership. We have decided to use all the means at our disposal to fight against fraud, including the most innovative ones such as Artificial Intelligence. Fighting fraud is a major objective: the financial impact is considerable on a network such as ours, which carries 87,000 passengers every day. This is money that we cannot then reinject into the production tool to improve the quality of the service given to our user customers. Moreover, if you don't have a ticket or if you don't validate it, then you are not visible as a passenger. This results in cancelled journeys due to a lack of passengers or overcrowded buses." Analyses Jean CARON, President of TICE. "We expect a lot from this collaboration and from this predictive model".

The Société d'Economie Mixte TICE was created in 1988 at the request of local elected representatives concerned about transport in their communes. It now employs 550 people on 3 sites: the commercial agency in Evry-Courcouronnes station, the head office in Courcouronnes and the depot in Bondoufle.

With 19 regular bus lines used by 87,000 passengers a day, the network serves 20 towns and villages with a population of nearly 350,000. Its 18 km exclusive right-of-way (bus corridor) is one of the largest in Europe.
