Urban environments can be complex operations with multiple car park types – multi storey, surface, and street – spread over a town or city. Difficult to manage and seemingly totally separate components, urban parking solutions are usually disparate self-contained solutions from multiple providers with little integration.

Parkers are demanding better, integrated solutions. One registration for all the car parks they use. Discounts for regular parking. Discounts for using the shops and restaurants. EV Charging. All of this without having to use 5 different apps. Easy parking. Easy entry and exit. Easy payments. Choice of payments.

Operators are demanding better, integrated solutions too. No more managing every car park as an individual entity. Converged administration and estate insights are no longer nice to have extras, they are a core part of business.


Our urban solution makes it possible to give your customers everything they want from your parking environment. Integrate your multi storey, surface and on street parking with complete confidence. Go freeflow in some car parks and keep barriers in others. Provide subscriptions and prebooked spaces, offer discounts for registered, regular parkers. Offer EV charging on the same ticket as parking whilst keeping the EV charging revenue for yourself rather than give it all away to a network.

See all your estate in a single web-based portal. Reporting, analytics, management, support, and training all in the same place making it just one click away from getting where you need to be.

Adding EV chargers provides a valuable service for all visitors who drive EVs as well as improving air quality and reducing emissions near sensitive communities. It will also add a “green” dimension to the overall perception of the parking environment.

  • Wayfinding
  • Good signage within the parking technology plays a huge role in simplifying the arrival experience, for patients, visitors, and staff. This process can start before any of the parkers arrive with parking information made available online. It’s easy to see how important it is to make wayfinding clear and efficient.
