When networking city centre sites from one control room it is important that the car park management system can offer the device status and reporting tools required to ensure quick fault resolution and minimal downtime.

The installation of Power.Gates on each lane enables both barcode ticket issue for short-term parking and QR code reading for contract parking ID.

Parkers using the coach services can receive discounted parking thanks to the SKIDATA sweb.Validate solution with online data transparency to the operator on usage.

With the brief of totally going cashless throughout all connected car parks, SKIDATA supplied both cashless pay stations and optional payment on the exit lane. This has reduced cash collection and maintenance costs for the operator 

IP intercom is integrated to all devices to enable hands-free two-way communication with parkers if assistance is required.

“We have worked closely with SKIDATA Ireland over the past 4 years and rolled out their parking system at a number of our locations across Ireland. We had in the past had significant problems with parking equipment and having reviewed all the equipment in the market, choose the SKIDATA solution. We are delighted with the equipment and have thoroughly enjoyed working with their professional team. I would recommend SKIDATA equipment to other carpark owners/operators”
