Get Paid on Unpaid Tickets Using No Cost eParkingCitation.com
Taps a nationwide lien holder database to find the lien holder by VIN
Sitting on unpaid parking tickets? Delinquent motorists who don’t pay their tickets can put a dent in the parking industry’s bottom line. eParkingCitation.com can help the parking industry get paid! Best of all? eParkingCitation is a FREE service!
eParkingCitation taps a nationwide VIN database to find registered and legal owners and lien holders, and it allows users to send “pay now” notifications to lien holders and owners using the VIN instead of the license plate.
Why is using the VIN better than the license plate? Lien holders and lenders are not able to identify vehicles via license plate. All automobile lenders use systems that are VIN based. In many cases, a lender simply has no way to match a citation to a vehicle and account. In situations where a lessor is almost certainly going to pay the citation, the lessor cannot match the citation with the account. The end result is that the citation is sent to a collection agency along with 50% of the citation value. Stop the madness! ePakingCitation is a free tool.
The dirty little secret is that it costs money for the citation processing industry to obtain the VIN from DMV. The citation processing industry is not interest in spending money with DMV and may not even understand the importance of VIN-Based parking collections.
eParkingCitation is powered by Locator Technologies. Locator houses a VIN lien holder database for over 85% of the lien holders’ vehicles on the road today. This means when a VIN is entered at eParkingCitation.com, the lien holder (lender) is notified electronically and instantly about the parking citation and the need to pay it.
The lender then reaches out to the registered owner to pay it, or the lender pays it themselves.
eParkingCitation also partners with eImpound.com. eImpound allows users to electronically identify and notify lien holders and owners at no cost.
All of these are powered by Locator Technologies at www.LocatorTechnologies.com.
Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, eParkingCitation.com is powered by Locator Technologies and has over 35 million U.S. lien holders’ liens and Canadian secured party records in its internal lien record database connecting those who need to identify and notify lien holders and vehicle owners and those who want to get notified on vehicle occurrences for the vehicles they care about. Locator Technologies also powers eimpound.com, AutomobileMonitor.com, LocatorTechnologies.com, www.LienQuery.com, and www.SCRAsearch.com, providing electronic notifications and updates to lien holders and insurers on occurrences for the vehicles they care about.

EDC CORPORATION INTRODUCES e-TICKETING TO ITS AIMS PARKING MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS SUITE
New function allows parking enforcement officers to issue citations electronically from within the Parking Office in conjunction with AIMS LPR system; benefits include speedier and safer ticketing, increased fee collection, and better documentation of violations.
Syracuse, NY – EDC Corporation, the Syracuse, NY-based developer of the AIMS Parking Management suite of parking management solutions, announced today that it has introduced e-Ticketing functionality in conjunction with the company’s proven and popular LPR technology. E-ticketing enables parking staff to issue citations within the parking office, using the violator’s license plate as the primary credential. Benefits include enhanced safety for personnel, higher productivity, lower operational costs, faster collection of fees, and a more robust and automated documentation trail, which includes photographic, time-stamp and GPS ‘proof’ of the violation.
“Moving from physical to virtual ticketing is the next, logical step in the evolution of the parking industry,” said Ellen Genung, Vice President of EDC Corporation. “We’ve seen this same progression in other segments of the transportation industry, beginning with Red Light Cameras as early as 1993 – to the current rush in the U.S. to migrate from staffed, paper-ticket toll booths to LPR cameras and pay-by-plate tolls, after longstanding use of that technology in Europe.” According to Genung, e-Ticketing is likewise a logical enhancement to and investment in EDC’s suite of parking software modules.
EDC customer Derrick Davis, who is Director of Parking and Transportation for Georgia Southern University, has seen excellent results from the AIMS e-Ticketing software, which was rolled out to select customers as a beta this past fall.
“Building on our use of AIMS LPR and virtual permitting, we implemented the AIMS eTicket module in the fall of 2019,” said Davis. “We’ve been able to issue 54% more citations, are no longer spending a quarter of our time looking for vehicles to tag with a windshield envelope, and we’re providing violators with far more information with each citation. Even better, our web payments have increased around 10%, which saves hands-on processing time. And, if we cite an unregistered vehicle, the license plate RO Lookup has enabled us to collect over $26K of previously unpaid citations and link over half of the unregistered vehicles to students.” Davis adds his department has also seen a drop-off in parking ticket-related office traffic. “This has been a real game changer for our operation.”
HOW AIMS e-TICKETING WORKS
The AIMS system provides parking enforcement personnel with digital tools for virtual enforcement. LPR-equipped vehicles and Fixed LPR cameras continually patrol and monitor parking lots, garages and streets, tracking vehicles and easily triggering needed citations in real-time. On the backend of the system, office personnel review the LPR data and issue citations from the safety of their office via email or, if desired, through AIMS’ print-and-mail ticket management system.
BENEFITS OF AIMS e-TICKETING
- Increased officer safety – The officer continues to work in the LPR vehicle, checking plates without having to exit and interact with disgruntled customers.
- Increased efficiency and citation issuance rates – Mobile and fixed LPR cameras do the work in the field, enabling office staff to efficiently review hits and issue citations without the enforcement officer having to walk from vehicle to vehicle, across campus, or across city blocks.
- Fixed cameras can capture violators without an LPR vehicle patrolling a lot or parking structure to physically place the citation on the windshield
- Reduced costs in enforcement staff and parking violation stock
- Increased accuracy as the office has more time to review data before completing the citation
- More information can be sent with the citation than can be printed on a ticket. This information can include images from the LPR cameras and the GPS location of the ticket.
- AIMS generates and delivers the ticket automatically
Those interested in learning more about the new AIMS e-Ticketing Module from EDC – and the broader AIMS Parking Solutions suite supporting the app — are encouraged to visit the company’s website and/or schedule a live demo.
