About SAM

Smart Applications Management (SAM) is a not for profit, membership organisation, specifically created to help local councils, commercial bus operators and other public sector bodies realise the benefits of ITSO smart ticketing, by pooling resources and expertise to access best in class services and systems at an affordable price through economies of scale.

Since our creation in 2010 we have been exceeding our Vision for Members, in delivering a wide range of solutions, from small concessionary entitlement schemes to large commercial schemes. In this time we have grown into the UK’s largest independent ITSO smart ticketing Managed Service provider, and led the UK in commissioning and hosting the National Procurement Framework for smart and integrated ticketing services and goods. This has all been based on the core principle of delivering high quality, value for money solutions for our Members.

We continue to be at the forefront of smart ticketing innovation and development not only continuing to deliver high-quality smart ticketing solutions but also in helping shape the future of smart ticketing in areas such as scholars ticketing, ITSO on mobile and on bus contactless EMV payments.
