ParkCloud renews contract with AENA

ParkCloud renews contract with AENA

 

 

ParkCloud is extremely pleased to announce that it renewed its contract with Spanish airport operator AENA earlier this year.

 

 

The association with Spain’s airports began in 2011 when ParkCloud first promoted AENA’s parking facilities at Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga airports.

 

In the intervening years, ParkCloud and AENA have furthered their partnership to almost 30 of the largest airports in Spain. 2015 saw the introduction of simplified booking management for customers, and the new contract means convenient parking spaces will be distributed across more platforms than ever before into 2017.

 

AENA – Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea – is the world’s largest airport operator, managing every public airport in Spain. Moreover, AENA has operations in the United Kingdom, Colombia and Mexico. Not only the largest operator, in 2015 AENA also saw the largest volume of passengers in Europe – a massive 219.7 million.

 

Up to four types of service are offered at each AENA airport, with parking spaces located inside the airport building; just a short walk away; connected by a fantastic and frequent shuttle bus service; with the option of a VIP or “meet and greet” service.

 

About ParkCloud

ParkCloud, founded in 2008, lets drivers book a parking space in advance, in the same way as it’s possible to do with hotel rooms, restaurant tables… and even a coffee these days.

When travelling, parking is usually the last thing on anybody’s mind, but research shows that as much as twenty minutes is wasted when searching for a parking space. ParkCloud’s award-winning service aims to solve that problem by letting customers make a parking booking, whether they are getting on a plane, taking a cruise, catching a train, or visiting a city or event. In 40 countries and counting!

HAZLETON, PA THE FIRST CITY TO CHARGE FOR PARKING WITHOUT AN ACTUAL METER: Pango launches citywide allowing drivers to pay with their phones

HAZLETON, PA THE FIRST CITY TO CHARGE FOR PARKING
WITHOUT AN ACTUAL METER
Pango launches citywide allowing drivers to pay with their phones

 

NEW YORK, NY – August 24, 2016 – Neil Edwards, president of Pango, a FinTech company providing mobile payments for smart cities and transit, today announced the expansion of Pango’s pay for parking payment app into the City of Hazleton, PA. The use of the app-driven payment system will be required to park on certain streets throughout the city and will replace the function of a typical parking meter.

 

“Up until today many cities across the country have been offering mobile payment for parking exclusively as a convenient alternative to traditional meter payment,” said Mr. Edwards. “Hazleton is the first city to offer the technology without the use of traditional parking meters also always being offered. They are setting a standard for other cities who may be looking to replace outdated meters or add an additional source of revenue to the city.”

The Pango parking payment system will replace the need for Hazleton to conduct costly repairs on or the replacement of nearly a third of their meters.

“The City of Hazleton is enthusiastic to add more advanced technology like Pango for City parking that will accommodate shoppers, employees and residents,” said Hazleton Mayor Jeff Cusat. “Pango offers a convenient and easy way to monitor the parking without the city needing to make expensive purchases on new meters and maintenance.”

Pango’s mobile payment app allows residents and visitors of Hazleton to conveniently pay for parking and extend the parking from their mobile device. Users will receive alerts 7 minutes before their parking is set to expire. They can return to their car and move it prior to the expiration or elect to extend the parking without the hassle of returning to the parked vehicle. Signage will be installed on metered and unmetered streets throughout the city and stickers will be placed on parking meters that will tell people about the Pango program and provide instructions for downloading and using the smartphone app. Another benefit of the Pango program is that a person can pay to park in a particular zone and use any remaining time they’ve purchased to park at a different spot within that zone.

The Pango app is available for Apple iOS, Andorid, and Blackberry devices. Those who do not have access to a smart device can pay for parking by calling a toll free number.

“I think Hazleton is at the start of a trend we will start seeing in other communities around the country. That being; the death of the parking meter,” added Mr. Edwards.

Quercus ANPR cameras make it to the news on KARK NBC 4 channel in the US

Quercus ANPR cameras make it to the news on KARK NBC 4 channel in the US

 

 

Quercus Technologies continues its worldwide expansion with new installations in the US market. With license plates recognition units already installed in important parking facilities in Florida, Manhattan, Chicago, Illinois, Wisconsin, Quercus is becoming a more and more important player. SmartLPR® Access made by Quercus Technologies arrives in Arkansas to make drivers’ life easier at Clinton National Airport in Little Rock.

 

 

The installation of Quercus license plate recognition cameras is part of a larger program designed to upgrade the parking facilities of the airport, ensuring extra security and convenience for both car park operators and drivers. One of the main advantages given by SmartLPR® Access is that the cameras take a picture of the license plate of the vehicle arriving at the airport and register it into the system along with the exact time of the entry. When leaving the parking facilities, if drivers do not have the ticket, they can simply search their license plate in the system and information related to their stay in the parking lot is immediately retrieved. By accurately identifying the number plate and the entry time of the vehicle, drivers can be correctly charged for their stay.

“This new parking installation at Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas is part of a wider very good feedback Quercus has been receiving in the US market”, says Albert Górriz, US General Manager at Quercus. “Our license plate recognition cameras are prepared for feeding accurate data to high end applications meant to automate and modernize the way parking facilities control and manage vehicle access”, adds Mr. Górriz.

Data provided by SmartLPR® Access cameras can be further used in other smart applications that allow for online reservation of the parking spot at airports, prevention of ticket exchange, search of lost tickets and many others.

Quercus Technologies manufactures and markets smart vehicle detection units based on advanced computer vision algorithms, which aim at improving mobility and security in parking facilities.
