Flowbird: Charleston, SC Updates Its Parking System with Effortless Digital Solutions

 

 

New touchscreens and mobile payment options offer faster convenience

 

 

Charleston, SC — The City of Charleston, South Carolina has announced an exciting upgrade to its parking system in partnership with Flowbird Group, the leader in curbside management and urban mobility solutions. The City is updating its parking system with modernized touch-screen pay-by-plate parking kiosks, fully equipped with the industry’s latest technology. Additionally, the City will be offering two new digital payment options, the Flowbird mobile payment app and Pay-by-Text! The upgrade is a part of City’s continued efforts to enhance the customer service experience with a modernized solution.

The updated parking system will feature solar-powered parking kiosks with a 9.7” full color touch display available in all City-owned surface lots. The touch screen display has the look and feel of a tablet, walking users step-by-step through the transaction process.

The new parking kiosks will introduce a ‘pay-by-plate’ parking system. This means that users will no longer be required to return to their car to display a receipt on the dashboard. Instead, all they need is their license plate.

“The City of Charleston is excited about the opportunity to upgrade our parking meter technology to improve the parking experience for our citizens and those who visit our wonderful city,” said Director of Traffic and Transportation Robert Somerville.

The City is also excited to announce the release of two other digital parking solutions, the Flowbird Mobile Payment App and Pay-by-Text!

The Flowbird App allows patrons to pay for parking from their mobile devices, receive text notifications when time is about to expire, and extend their time without having to visit a parking kiosk. Designed as a true mobility app, the Flowbird App features a map-based user interface, integrated with Waze and other navigation systems to guide users to their preferred parking location.

The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Pay-by-Text is an easy-to-use web-based solution that allows drivers to pay for their parking session directly from their phone – without creating an account or downloading an app!

By implementing modernized parking solutions with convenient payment options, the City will be able to better manage parking turnover and visitor influx during peak periods and provide a more user-friendly experience. The addition of digital payment options will bring a consistent and higher level of customer service to the parking public.

Flowbird: Clearwater, Florida Launches Pay by Text Solution – No App or Account Required

Clearwater, Florida Launches Pay by Text Solution – No App or Account Required

 

New parking payment option released ahead of Spring Break

 

 

 

Clearwater, Florida — The City of Clearwater, Florida has released Pay by Text, the latest advancement in the City’s parking convenience options, in partnership with Flowbird, the City’s parking kiosk provider. Pay by Text is an easy-to-use web-based solution that allows drivers to pay for their parking session directly from their phone without creating an account or downloading an app.

This latest feature adds another convenient way to pay when parking in city-owned parking spaces, lots, and garages in Clearwater, alongside the pay-on-foot parking meters and mobile payment apps.

How Pay by Text Works:

  1. Park your vehicle
  2. Text ‘CLEARWATER’ to 727563
  3. Receive a secure link to input your parking details – including license plate number, duration, and payment information
  4. Confirm the details to start your parking session

Information is sent to parking enforcement who can verify the vehicle is in compliance. That’s it! There is no need to create an account, download an app, or visit a kiosk.

“We are very excited about the launch of the Pay by Text service – just in time for visitors coming in for Spring Break,” said Clearwater Parking Manager, Jeremy Alleshouse, “This feature gives our residents and visitors even more convenience when they park in our bright and beautiful city.”

The Pay by Text solution is PCI-DSS certified, giving assurance to parkers that their data is protected. Once the parking session is complete, the payment information is encrypted and the card data is not stored. To provide the parker with future convenience, their mobile device can store the card number in an encrypted manner so the number does not have to be re-entered the next time a parking session is performed.

By implementing modernized parking solutions with convenient payment options, the City will be able to better manage parking turnover and visitor influx during peak periods. The City can help motorists stay in compliance with parking enforcement, reducing the number of citations.

Along with pay by text, visitors may still use the parking kiosks to pay for their parking session, as well as the Flowbird mobile app and Parkmobile.

Pay by Text is now live throughout the City of Clearwater.

TKH Security: Horseshoe St Louis to revolutionize the parking experience for guests with a state-of-the-art Automated Parking Guidance System

TKH Security: Horseshoe St Louis to revolutionize the parking experience for guests with a state-of-the-art Automated Parking Guidance System

 

 

Cheshire, CT  – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) is thrilled to announce its recent collaboration with Horseshoe St Louis in St Louis, Missouri. The core of the partnership is the installation of a state-of-the-art Automated Parking Guidance System (APGS), ushering in a new era of parking efficiency and convenience for Horseshoe St Louis and its patrons.

Horseshoe St Louis is a premier casino and entertainment destination in St. Louis, Missouri. With the installation of TKH Security’s APGS, the casino aims to elevate the experience of guests and employees alike in its 867-space, four story parking garage.

TKH Security’s APGS optimizes parking facility management and enhances the parker’s experience from initial garage entry to an open space. Monitoring up to six parking spaces simultaneously, the M5 camera-based smart sensor is the core of the APGS. Sensors utilize streaming HD video 24/7 to provide operators with real-time occupancy data for each parking bay. With 99%+ accuracy, M5 sensors ensure precise and up-to-date information about space availability. Green and red LED lights on the sensors navigate parkers to the available spaces, reducing the time to park by up to 63%.

“We’re pleased to be selected by Horseshoe St Louis in their quest to elevate customer satisfaction through innovative parking solutions. This partnership showcases our dedication to transforming the parking experience for casinos and entertainment venues,” said Jeff Sparrow, Director of Sales, North America. “We anticipate installation completion in early 2024.”

Their APGS package also includes:

  • LCD Signage: Large LCD displays provide clear, user-friendly information, ensuring a seamless parking experience for all users.
  • Park Alerts: Real-time alerts notify operators when certain vehicles enter the building, including special guests and persons who are banned, if someone parks in a restricted space, or if someone overstays their limited-time space.
  • Park Surveillance: By capturing streaming video when motion is detected or continuously, operators can be on the lookout for suspicious activity in a more efficient way than ever before. Plus, since recordings can be saved up to 90 days, security can easily work with authorities when needed.
  • API Package: The API package allows Horseshoe St Louis to both integrate the system seamlessly with their existing infrastructure and connect securely to a limitless set of third-party parking related solutions, creating a customized and robust solution.
  • INX Integration: INX provides Horseshoe St Louis with powerful data analytics and reporting tools, enabling them to make data-driven decisions for ongoing improvements to their parking operations. Real-time and historical actionable data includes: occupancy, dwell, turnover, heatmaps, frequency, trends, comparative analysis, and environmental conditions.

TKH Security is proud to partner with Schaeffer Electric Co on this project.

AppyWay partners with Connected Kerb to revolutionise electric vehicle charging and parking

 

 

 

  • The UK needs to deploy 300,000 more electric vehicle (EV) chargers in the next decade to meet driver demands ahead of the 2035 ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles.
  • AppyWay and Connected Kerb have partnered to transform the way drivers find available EV charging bays and how councils deploy, manage, and monitor charging infrastructure.
  • The partnership includes the integration of Connected Kerb’s charging solution with AppyWay’s The Parking Platform™ real-time bay occupancy and insights.
  • The partnership and integration will empower councils with the information they need to monitor EV charging facilities and plan rollout to scale their decarbonisation and net-zero ambitions.

Tuesday 24th October 2023, London, UK: AppyWay, Europe’s most-awarded intelligent parking and kerbside management company, is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Connected Kerb, an industry-leading provider of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. This collaboration aims to reshape electric vehicle charging and parking solutions, enhancing convenience and accessibility for EV drivers, whilst helping the local governments unlock the insights, they need to meet their net-zero targets.

Through the integration of The Parking Platform™ powered by AppyWay and Connected Kerb’s cutting-edge charging infrastructure, a seamless ecosystem has been created, allowing drivers to effortlessly locate available electric vehicle charging bays. This innovation addresses the “range anxiety” EV drivers find they experience when searching for charging facilities during their journey or at their destination.

For local governments, the solution empowers them with the tools they need to make, monitor and monitise EV charging bays, and provides them with the real-time insights and historical data needed to scale charging infrastructure rollout effectively and seamlessly.

As environmental concerns and government-led initiatives such as the ULEZ expansion continue to drive the adoption of electric vehicles, AppyWay and Connected Kerb’s integration is leading the charge in enabling local governments to meet the charging demands of today’s EV drivers and prepare for the 2035 ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles.

Dan Hubert, Founder & CEO of AppyWay, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership: “Teaming up with Connected Kerb marks another significant milestone in our mission to help cities decarbonise through innovative technology. The UK is at a pivotal moment in its EV charge point rollout and it’s the decisions that are made today that will impact whether local governments meet their infrastructure targets by 2035. Partnerships such as this are crucial in understanding charging demand and planning rollout in a scalable manner. By integrating The Parking Platform™ with Connected Kerb’s charging solutions, we’re making electric vehicle charging and parking a hassle-free experience for everyone, drivers and local authorities alike.”

Connected Kerb’s Head of Digital, Ben Boutcher-West also shared his excitement: “Our collaboration with AppyWay is a pivotal moment in making electric vehicle charging infrastructure reliable, inclusive and convenient for everyone. Together, we are poised to deliver a hassle-free charging experience for drivers and make it easy for councils to manage and monitor charging infrastructure, while also putting our planet first.”

The partnership between AppyWay and Connected Kerb represents a sizable step towards encouraging and accelerating electric vehicle adoption, and the rollout of charging infrastructure. The integrated solution is already being used by the likes of Coventry City Council and is set to roll out further, ushering in a new era of efficient, convenient, and eco-friendly electric vehicle charging and monitoring.

Construction Specialties (CS): New Undermount Fire Barrier Minimizes Smoke Passage While Accommodating Dynamic Movement

August 17, 2023

 

Construction Specialties (CS): New Undermount Fire Barrier Minimizes Smoke Passage While Accommodating Dynamic Movement

 

 

(LEBANON, NJ)  — Construction Specialties (CS), a leading manufacturer of high-performance architectural building products, introduces a new undermount model to its FB-17 series of expansion joint fire barriers. This line of products effectively minimizes smoke passage while accommodating dynamic movement, without degradation of the material.

 

The FB-17UM system installs from below the joint instead of from above, as is the normal installation for expansion joints. This makes it ideally suited for applications where access above thejoint opening is not possible, including:

  • Renovations when a wall cannot be demolished and going under is the only option
  • Parking garages or under stadiums, where aesthetics may not primary objectives
  • Pre-cast slabs that can’t be cut
  • Other areas where an emergency solution is needed

 

“Construction Specialties developed the industry’s first UL-approved expansion joint fire barrier in 1983, then innovated models as new projects and applications came along,” said Gabriel Blasi, CDT, Director of Engineered Product Solutions for Construction Specialties. “Our new undermount fire barrier emerged directly from a customerneed. They encountered a situation where they had a fire-rated joint and couldn’t install fire barrier in the traditional way. We had to find a solution where they could install from below the floor joint.”

 

The FB-17UM Undermount Expansion Joint Fire Barrier is designed for 5″–20″ nominal and 9″–30″ maximum floor expansion joints where there are seismic, thermal, or wind-sway design requirements. It has been third-party tested and listed for 2-hour floor endurance rating, meeting UL 2079, ASTM E1966, and ASTM E1399 performance standards. It is available in 10′ (304.8cm) stock lengths and engineered for simple splicing. A lateral slide option accommodates multidirectional movement.
