Innovative parking payment system
Challenging traditional parking garage payment methods, German IT company Sunhill Technologies will highlight sms&exit, developed in cooperation with the leading producers of barrier technology, including Designa, Scheidt & Bachmann, and Skidata.
sms&exit provides for a registration-free, reliable and fast system for processing payments that can easily and without any adaptations be integrated into any existing barrier system. This technology has already been put into operation at Munich Airport, at parking garages of Brepark in Bremen, shopping malls in Munich (Hamburg and Berlin coming soon) and will be implemented at Vienna Airport soon.
This is how it works: The user sends the ticket number to a signposted short code number before leaving the parking garage. After inserting the ticket at the exit, the barrier opens. The customer benefits because there is no queuing at the cash machine, no registration and the parking fee will be settled via the mobile phone bill. For the operator, it provides a new, secure and innovative payment option with the potential of future savings due to its high cost-efficiency.
