A success story. But let us start right from the beginning: Richard N. Best Associates, Inc., a recognized integrator of parking, access and revenue control systems, was planning to implement a new parking system for the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing when a long-time supplier discontinued its product line. After extensive research, Best turned to DESIGNA to supply equipment that fulfilled client requirements for a customized parking solution using advanced technologies.
They planned and installed a parking facility management system at the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing consisting of entry and exit points as well as two automatic pay stations from DESIGNA’s Blue Edition series. The system features a valet component and a hotel option and ties into the hotel’s OnQ Folio package with Saflok room keys so patrons can use their keys to enter and exit the garage. Validations for the restaurant and catering facility are also included, along with a comprehensive reporting system.
Richard N. Best Associates, Inc. and DESIGNA continue to develop their working relationship in 2016. Vice President Jeffrey Best says, “I am very pleased with our new partnership with DESIGNA, which provides our customers with cost-effective, integrated hardware peripherals and web-enabled software utilizing the latest technologies.”
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.
