Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas is now benefiting from a state-of-the-art Parking Access and Revenue Control System (PARCS) from DESIGNA, installed as part of a redevelopment project of airport facilities. The DESIGNA solution was delivered by the airport’s incumbent PARCS systems integrator and maintenance provider, Next Gen Parking.
As one of the world leading manufacturers of car park management systems, DESIGNA has over 15,000 systems installed globally in a wide variety of parking situations including recent installations at Sydney and Frankfurt airports.
The new DESIGNA PARCS at Clinton National Airport is currently going through its final system acceptance. It cleverly integrates e.g. automated entry lanes, dual-use exit lanes, license plate recognition (LPR)and Commend VoIP intercom. TransCore Automatic Vehicle Identification and a HID Proximity Card Access complete the high technology solution.
“The DESIGNA system was preferred due to the robust system architecture, stability of the platform, the flexibility to integrate and interface with any third party service provider plus the number of cli-ent references at major airports across the globe,” said Jim Bass, landside operations manager for Clinton National Airport. “Moreover, DESIGNA has been an excellent partner in the process, and we're pleased to be working with the company.”
Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport is Arkansas’s largest commercial service airport, with nearly 2 million passengers annually. The Little Rock airport hosts six airlines with dozen of daily departures and nonstop service to 15 cities.
In 1951 DESIGNA became Germany's first producer and supplier of parking meters. DESIGNA's history of innovation continued. At the end of the seventies, the Kiel-based enterprise was able to to introduce its first fully automatic parking system. The company's programme has now been further developed to encompass fully comprehensive solutions, from the design and planning phase right through to the installation and service of fully automatic parking systems. The experience DESIGNA has acquired over the last 50 years continues to benefit customers at every stage of the project.
