LOWELL, MA and NASHVILLE, TN, (October 27, 2022) – Scheidt & Bachmann USA, Inc. (“S&B”) and Creative Parking Concepts, LLC (“CPC”) announced the signing of their channel partnership agreement whereby CPC will become a sales, distribution, and service provider for new S&B customers in the southeastern United States. Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Creative Parking Concepts has been selling, installing, and supporting a variety of parking technologies since 2010 as one of the leading systems integrators in the parking and transportation industries.

Until now, the company has operated exclusively with a “manufacturer direct” approach throughout the US and Canadian markets.

“After evaluating several key data points and metrics within our current business, moving to a distributor-based model in certain markets with the right, hand-selected partners that will add value to our existing offerings just makes sense,” said Bill Geraghty, Executive Vice President of Sales for S&B. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to kick things off with Creative Parking Concepts and feel honored that they are as equally excited to be working with our organization. Todd Albert and his team are a highly talented and professional group of individuals that share our passion for delivering great technology and a great customer experience.”

Todd Albert, CEO of Creative Parking Concepts, stated, “When we became aware that Scheidt & Bachmann was building a partner channel in the states, we immediately raised our hand. S&B’s versatile product line is built to scale and includes the full range of features that today’s parking buyers demand; from gated to gateless, from tickets to apps. We are beyond excited to be selected to represent the time-honored S&B brand as a full-service partner in the US.”

Scheidt & Bachmann says similar announcements with additional key channel partners are in the works for other select markets around North America as they continue to enhance their Go- To-Market strategy to benefit both their customers and the business.

Harry Reid International Airport upgraded parking to LPR thanks to Scheidt & Bachmann’s & Survision.

April 13, 2022





Harry Reid International Airport upgraded parking to LPR thanks to Scheidt & Bachmann’s & Survision.




What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!




Survision LPR cameras have been Scheidt & Bachmann’s “weapon of choice” to face the challenge of upgrading Harry Reid International Airports (formerly McCarran Airport) Parking Management System.

Along with other major upgrades, this iconic airport has empowered its parking lots with 50 Survision Nanopak Totem cameras acquiring the ability to offer a frictionless exit to their customers, exponentially reducing waiting times, pollution levels, and radically eliminating lost ticket inconveniences/frauds.

When it comes to high volume traffic, as in the case of Las Vegas Airport, this represents a huge leap in service quality and operational efficiency; the challenge was tough: they needed to install 50 short-range LPR cameras without major infrastructure changes and without loop triggers.  Survision’s Ready-to-use Nanopak Totem was the perfect solution.

Laura Caillot, survision General Manager says:

“We are very excited of witnessing this LPR well justified “revolution”;  think about it, the benefits are undeniable for both customers and companies: 

On one hand, you have all the “magic” LPR can bring to the people(no wait in line, no lost ticket, less pollution, no badges) and on the other,  you have our special all-included Survision LPR cameras handling  all the processing by themselves!, All of this makes it easier and cheaper to do the LPR upgrade sparing you from spending thousands on heavy/expensive additional hardware” 

Survision LPR cameras already operate in many city airports such as London, and Paris.


LIDL Choose Scheidt & Bachmann and Survision for an Innovative Customer Parking Experience

April 01, 2021






LIDL Choose Scheidt & Bachmann and Survision for an Innovative Customer Parking Experience


LIDL, a European leader in mass retail and Scheidt&Bachmann, world leader in parking facilities, have come together to provide customers of the chain an innovative customer service experience with the help of SURVISION ANPR (Automatic number-plate recognition) technology.

The comfort of LIDL’s customers depends particularly on how easily and quickly they can find supermarket parking. As more and more supermarkets were opening in town centers, the importance of the reservation of parking places exclusively for LIDL customers became clear. A customer unable to find parking to load his shopping because all the spaces are occupied by improperly parked external vehicles is an unhappy customer who may never return.

Using SURVISION technology, Scheidt & Bachmann and LIDL have now installed in LIDL supermarket car-parks an access control Entrance to LIDL garage, closed parking barrierssystem which combines license plate recognition and barriers. Users benefit from a free parking period, beyond which they must pay a parking fee proportional to their length of stay.

Thanks to this system, the parking spaces are only used by LIDL customers who can park easily and exit rapidly, without payment and waiting at the barriers, as long as their parking stay doesn’t exceed the allotted free period. LIDL customers have a better experience in terms of comfort, fluidity and pollution reduction.

LIDL’s decision to employ the most innovative technologies for improved customer comfort is clearly in keeping with the progression of the chain in the French market. It has registered the best annual progression (with +0.4% of market shares in 2020) and has surpassed for the first time the level of 6% of market shares in France.

Scheidt & Bachmann Sponsors Women In Parking Networking Event at Intertraffic to Begin Discussions to Form European Professional Chapter



International PARCS provider Scheidt  & Bachmann GmbH partnered with Women In Parking to host an introductory networking event on April 7, 2016 during the Intertraffic Amsterdam Conference and Expo. The event served to encourage discussions to establish a formal European Chapter of Women In Parking for the collective continent. Over 70 professionals attended the evening occasion which was held at the Scheidt & Bachmann conference booth.


“The platform provided by Scheidt & Bachmann was vital in bringing together parking organizations and Chief Officers to not miss opportunities to grow their own companies by ensuring that they tap in to  and recognize the women in their organizations who may and could enhance their businesses,” said Anjna Patel, past president of British Parking Association and Principal Officer of parking at Sandwell MBC in the United Kingdom.

Representatives from a variety of parking sectors including vendors, operators, consultants and public specialties participated in the event to learn more about the organization’s mission. A host of industry leaders were invited to speak at the event including Anjna Patel; Ashley Bijster, Managing Director of Imperial Civil Enforcement Solutions; and Laurence Bannerman, current president of European Parking Association.

“The response and turnout for the WIP European Event was amazing,” commented attendee Julie Dixon, President at Dixon Resources Unlimited and WIP member. “It was so rewarding to see how many of our colleagues enthusiastically attended to represent their support.”

The Women In Parking (WIP) organization was founded in the U.S. in 2011 to serve as the premier association dedicated to promoting the advancement and achievement of female parking professionals by providing networking, leadership, and career outreach opportunities to its members. For the past few years, Women In Parking has worked persistently to offer resources that all organizations within the industry can access and take full advantage of to improve and capitalize on a gender balanced workforce within their respective organizations.

Over 200 individual members and a number of corporate sponsors including Scheidt & Bachmann support the Women In Parking. It is the organization’s desire to see the same success with a European Chapter. According to Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH’s Parking Managing Director and EPA Board associate member Martin Kammler, “it is imperative that global leaders in parking recognize the valuable initiative that an organization such as Women In Parking can bring to business discussions. I am fully supportive of a more diverse environment where collaborative ideas can be brought to the table to reach our fullest potential. This is not only a matter of supporting gender equality in the workplace but more importantly about recognizing valuable talent within our organizations by giving them necessary tools to grow and succeed.”

Women In Parking will be holding future information and networking sessions at European parking conferences and expos. In the meantime, the organization will work towards attaining formal establishment of a European Chapter as well as recruiting a leadership board and members.
