Abstract [en]

Swedish public transport organizations have set an objective to double usage of the public transport during the next coming five years. This study attempts to investigate if the current ticket solutions support the goal of the public transport companies, and if the available mobile phone solutions can lower barriers for consumers. In order to do that, critical travelling moments for users of different market segments were estimated during a pre-study stage. The following focus group discussions helped to validate problems identified during the pre-study. At the same time, focus groups provided deeper consumer insights on general consumer perception of the transport service, ticketing, mobile payment, quality of service, consumer expectations related to the public transport services, and consumer satisfaction and loyalty.

The conducted research helped to identify problems existing in public transport ticketing and mobile payment areas, which have the negative impact on the usage of the public transport service and contribute with additional barriers for users. Moreover, this conclusion is supported by multiple examples that clearly illustrate what does not work, and why it does not work. Hence, mentioned solutions do not support the overall objective of the public transport operators. The comprehension of these problems and barriers can contribute to a better understanding of consumer needs and expectations, and help the public transport service providers to improve the service.

Abstract [en]

 Mobile payments are transforming the payments industry. These services open up the opportunity for non-banking actors to enter the market. In order to embrace this challenge, banks, traditional payments market players, are forced to launch mobile payments. However, in Europe and most developed economies, a big number of launched services get terminated soon after their introduction in the market. Hence, the ability of different actors to act locally calls for additional research.

The main objective of this thesis is to broaden knowledge and understanding about the ways mobile payment service providers address the opportunities and challenges of mobile payment services. In order to investigate this problem, this research (i) explores factors stimulating and hindering the introduction of mobile payments using perspectives of different types of service providers (i.e., banks, independent providers, direct operator billing providers, retailers, and public transport companies) and (ii) seeks to explain the importance of these factors for each type of provider.

The primary data collected using interview method. More than 40 industry representatives in six countries were contacted. The Service, Technology, Organisation, and Finance (STOF) model was used as a theoretical research framework. This is a business modelling framework that specifies a set of critical design issues that have to  be considered within each model’s domain.

Research findings highlight that the organisation domain is the key domain, which  affects all other domains and has an impact on the general viability of the business model. A comparison of the approaches used by different service providers to address each of the critical design issues helped to identify the factors that are most important within each domain. These factors stimulate or hinder development of a viable business model within each category of service providers.

This research contributes to a better understanding of challenges and success factors associated with the design of business models for new mobile services and uses the lens of the STOF model. The contributions to the academic research on mobile payments are: (i) collection and analysis of a rich empirical data set on mobile payment services implemented in six Northern European countries, (ii) discussion of a bigger picture by connecting research findings to the context of the existing payment system, (iii) extension  of knowledge on business models for mobile ticketing, and (iv) extension of knowledge on the value of mobile ticketing services in the business-to-business (B2B) context.

Abstract [sv]

Uppkomsten av mobila betalningslösningar förändrar betalningsindustrin. Tjänsterna erbjuder möjligheter för nya aktörer att komma in på marknaden. Detta utmanar traditionella aktörer såsom banker vilka börjat att införa mobila betalningstjänster. I Europa och andra utvecklade länder visar det sig att ett stort antal av dessa nya tjänster dras bort från marknaden strax efter att de lanserats. Därför behövs fördjupad forskning kring olika aktörers förmåga att agera på lokala marknader.

Det övergripande syftet med denna avhandling är att bredda kunskap och förståelse om hur tjänsteleverantörer hanterar möjligheter och utmaningar med mobila betalningar. Forskningen har fokuserat på att: (i) identifiera faktorer som stimulerar eller försvårar  lansering av betalningslösningar för olika typer av tjänsteleverantörer (banker, oberoende betalningsleverantörer, telekomoperatörer, detaljhandel och kollektivtrafikföretag) och  (ii) förklara inverkan av olika faktorer för varje typ av leverantör.

Forskningen baseras på primärdata insamlad från intervjuer med drygt 40 aktörer i sex länder. Som teoretiskt ramverk används den s.k. STOF modellen (Service, Technology, Organisation, and Finance) som är ett verktyg framtaget för analys av affärsmodeller. Den anger olika kritiska faktorer och problem som bör beaktas inom affärsmodellens olika domäner.

Resultaten pekar på att “Organisation” är den viktigaste domänen i affärsmodellen, denna påverkar de övriga domänerna samt affärsmodellens allmänna bärkraft. En jämförelse av de strategier som olika tjänsteleverantörer använder för att hantera kritiska designproblem har använts för att peka ut de faktorer som är de viktigaste inom varje domän.

Denna forskningen bidrar till en bättre förståelse av utmaningar och framgångsfaktorer i samband med utformningen av affärsmodeller för nya mobila betalningstjänster. Bidragen till den akademiska forskningen om mobila betalningslösningar är: (i) insamling och analys av ett brett empiriskt material om mobila betalningslösningar i sex nordeuropeiska länder, (ii) en diskussion av helhetsbilden genom att koppla forskningsresultaten om nya betalningslösningar till det befintliga betalningssystemet,  (iii) utökad kunskap om affärsmodeller för mobila biljetttjänster, och (iv) breddad kunskap om värdet av mobila biljetttjänster inom business-to-business (B2B).
