COMPANY HISTORY

ERG Headquarters

Videlli is a Perth, Western Australia, based company.

Established in 1984 as a developer of electronic display systems, the company was restructured in the mid-1980s to focus on two industries; Automated Fare Collection for transit systems and the manufacture of mobile telecommunications infrastructure.

In 2000 the company exited the telecommunications market to concentrate on the Automated Fare Collection market, with a particular focus on multi application smart card based technology and solutions.
