A TAILORED Combination OF TECHNOLOGIES TO SUIT MOST AIRPORT CAR PARKS
The PARKi LPR system can provide a fully integrated airport parking solution. All vehicle registrations are identified upon entry and exit and sent instantly to the parking management system.
AIRPORT STAFF PERMITS
Permanent parkers who have supplied the operator with their vehicle registration can enter and exit without having to stop at the gate. This is also applied to the fleet of vehicles that shuttle passengers to and from the airport.
This feature enables customer to prepay for reserve parking for a period of time within a day, or consecutive days.
The Reservation System is can be web based with your branding as well as a subset PARKi app solution for Android and IOS.
If a reservation is made then entry is authorised either by presenting the users PARKi QR Code on their phone to a scanner on entry or the user’s licence plate number is recognised by a licence plate recognition system as part of their PARKi account and the boom gate opens automatically.
We have integrated Google Maps into ther app, giving the user directions to their nominated parking location.
Exit from the car park is using either the user’s Parki QR Code App, which is scanned at the exit station or if an LPR is installed, automatic recognition of licence plate will open the boom gate and enable exit.
If the reservation user overstays their paid reservation period, then payment can be made at the exit station by either using their Parki QR Code linked to their credit card account or paying by credit card for the displayed value at the exit station.
For casual parkers that have successfully paid for their parking at the pay station, the exit boom gate will automatically raise when their vehicle is identified.
CDS developed intervention software that ensures that the exit boom gate will only open for a vehicle that has successfully paid for a ticket where the entry and exit LPR reads match. If a paid ticket is scanned at the exit station, but the vehicle does not match that of the vehicle from the entry, then the boom gate will not raise. In this circumstance a warning will be raised to the operator and images of the entry vehicle and exit vehicle for this ticket are displayed. The operator can then choose from a number of different options as to how they will proceed. A quick filtered search through the entry database will show the operator the time that the current vehicle entered the car park and they can apply the necessary charges.
To ensure that hotel guests park in the required area, PARKi can build custom stations to be placed at the entry and exit to this area. All hotel guests can scan in and out using their entry pass. The system only refers to these scans when a guest pass is presented to the pay station. In this case, all time spent in the special area is free of charge, while the combined time spent in the normal car park is charged at normal rates. This essentially gives hotel guests free parking so long as they park in the special area.
PARKi has an integrated a guest pass printer for use a a hotel reception PC. Hotel staff can enter details and create passes for guests upon check-in. This is then connected back to the car park management system via the internet and in real-time.
Permanent parkers now have the pleasure of entering and exiting the car park without having to interact with a station. Time is saved for every vehicle. Management also have the benefit of their fleet vehicles saving time for travelling passengers as each vehicle is treated as a permanent.
Casual car park users are surprised when the boom gate automatically opens upon their exit when they have already paid at the pay station. This improved efficiency has prompted customers to return.
Intervention software, help car park management see who is trying to abuse the system and stamp out this behaviour. What would previously have been lost revenue is now being fully captured. It is now extremely difficult for any user to ‘cheat’ the system.
Hotel guests are given a single pass that they can use for the duration of their stay regardless of how many times they come and go that gives them free parking. The pass is created for them by the hotel front desk upon their check-in. The voucher only works when they park in the specified hotel guest area. This benefits the paying public with more available spaces in the main car park. The car park is more profitable as all vehicles in the main car park are now fully fee paying.
