Amsterdam implements Agendum digital parking enforcement
Last month, the City of Amsterdam achieved a first with the implementation of its new digital Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), facilitated by the Scanman application developed by Agendum, a Dutch parking enforcement solutions specialist.
Agendum points out that although the first step in increasing the efficiency of parking enforcement is digital scanning of licence plates by using mobile ANPR, a fast and accurate back-office is required in order to gain efficiency in the whole enforcement process.
The licence plate information (including GPS and time) is instantly transmitted to the Scanman back-office application, which sends a request to the digital parking rights databases to identify the scanned vehicles’ parking status. The application will automatically do the enforcement follow-up.
In the Amsterdam model all parking rights are digital and fines are sent by mail. This results in a significant reduction of personnel.
Only in some exceptions will a person need to confirm or reject a PCN on a monitor in a control room.
