Sunhill shows parking app at Intertraffic
German IT company Sunhill Technologies is showing its mobile payment system for parking garages.
Using a mobile ticketing app, a motorist sends the parking garage’s ticket number to a signposted short code number before leaving the garage. After inserting the ticket, the barrier opens; the fee is paid via the customer’s mobile phone bill.
Benefits for the customer include no queuing at cash machines and no registration to use the system. The new system also provides another payment option, rather than cash or debit cards. The new system can be incorporated into any existing car park without any modifications to existing barrier systems, says the company.
