Commercial Understanding signed with Metric

Metric Group and Cobalt Telephone Technologies, owners of the RingGo brand, have announced a commercial understanding to offer parking authorities a suite of parking solutions that integrates Pay & Display machines and a mobile phone based means of payment.
Joachim Oehmen, Managing Director of the Metric Group said, "This partnership will allow a parking manager to implement phone parking with confidence - with the added bonus of having a single source audit facility via our ASLAN networked central management system."

Harry Clarke, Commercial Director, speaking for the Cobalt Board, said, "We are excited at the prospect of joining forces to bring what is widely acknowledged as the best phone parking solution available to a community of local authorities that is already very comfortable with the reliability synonymous with Metric."

About the Partnership

This partnership will allow existing users of Metric machines to introduce RingGo phone parking technology under a single service agreement, with integrated management reporting and service structures. It also reflects Metric's desire to benefit from the new opportunities that phone payment brings, and RingGo's plans to accelerate its national and international growth. Metric's sales teams will now be able to offer a wider spectrum of parking solutions to the mutual benefit of both organisations.
