In their own words Revenue Control The Companies

January, 2015

AMANO McGANN

For more than 25 years, our customers have relied heavily on Amano McGann’s industry-leading lane devices, software and local offices to help manage their business. With emerging technology such as “big data,” business intelligence and mobile devices, customers need a technology partner with all of the above, plus a cloud-based, enterprise-caliber parking management platform.

 The OPUSeries lane devices and OPUSuite cloud application allow customers to leverage the latest tools and technology. Our customers experience improved performance and yield using the same cloud platform that powers thousands of applications such as Office 365 and Bing.

 OPUSuite provides parking owners and operators the ability to cost effectively consolidate, access, view and manage their parking facilities from anywhere at any time. This allows for “command center” approach options incorporating back office applications with communication center capabilities, making remote management a reality.

 The parking industry is just as reliant on dependable, flexible lane devices on-premise. These lane devices must provide physical control of the operation and revenue while accurately and seamlessly collecting and transferring car park data. OPUSeries devices meet those needs and receive information and commands from “the cloud” for reservations, validations and more. 

 The company’s full line of robust, on-premise devices meets the needs of any application. All are integrated and engineered by Amano McGann to take full advantage of the OPUSuite cloud platform. Contact us to experience a global view of your operations and leverage these emerging technologies to improve business performance, yield and customer satisfaction.

TIBA PARKING SYSTEMS

The strengths of TIBA Parking Systems, a member of the Israel-based Afcon Holdings Group, are founded on innovations in hardware and software.

The hardware technology has been based on barcode technology for 28 years, which confers multiple benefits. Because barcode systems require less internal hardware to operate than magnetic stripe technology, there is an initial lower acquisition price for our systems. Subsequently, this translates into significantly lower maintenance costs over the lifecycle of the installation.

An additional operational cost reduction feature is that there is no requirement for the more expensive magnetic stripe tickets or the requirement for preprinted ticket stock.

At the time that TIBA entered the North American market eight years ago, it made the strategic decision to completely rewrite its management software. This resulted in a robust, open-architecture system based on modern software tools.

This has enabled the company to quickly and easily address interface requirements, whether they be hardware (e.g., LPR or AVI), software (e.g., general ledger), hotel and university systems and emerging technologies (e.g., online reservations systems, mobile payments systems, chip & pin and NFC).

Being able to quickly interface to all of these technologies results in a lower cost and quicker time to implementation for customers.

Going forward, TIBA is uniquely positioned to help customers bridge the gap from the existing, traditional PARCS processes to a broader business system that anticipates and interfaces with emerging technologies, supporting automated facilities, new payment methodologies and centralized operations.

Xerox Corp.

Parking services present serious challenges for city governments. Cities incorporating a variety of technologies, products and services from multiple third-party vendors are tasked with the time-consuming challenges associated with managing numerous vendors.

At times, these vendors may have competing incentives or interests. As an integrator, we’re able to combine multiple functions into a single responsibility center for improved performance.

Xerox parking solutions deliver intelligent management systems that not only optimize parking programs, but also deliver convenient solutions for drivers.

The city of Los Angeles is one example of our innovative approach to managing parking demand. We developed a program designed to ease congestion and reduce pollution through demand-based parking pricing and real-time parking guidance.

Within the first six months of the program, there was a 10% decrease in parking congestion and an 11% decrease in parking rates; however, there also was a 2% increase in parking revenue. This program demonstrates the power that pricing can have in changing driver behavior.

From smart-parking integration to violation processing and meter operations, we can help you reduce costs and street congestion. By integrating technology with our proven strategies for efficiently managing programs, you’ll gain powerful results for your organization. 

Best of all, our smart parking solutions are not just for big cities.  Xerox offers any size municipality innovative solutions that integrate real-time data and then apply analytics to help decision-making.

Parking solutions are complex, but for you and your customers, parking should be simple.
