After a thorough analysis of various valet automation and self-parking management systems, a premier downtown Austin hotel selects Service Tracking Systems and Federal APD to handle their parking needs.
Downtown Austin Hotel adjacent to the Austin Convention CenterThis 800 room hotel experiences high volumes of guests year around, as its the only hotel adjacent to the Austin Convention Center. This prime location is also convenient for visitors and locals as its just one block from Austin's famous Sixth Street nightlife, and a few minute walk to shopping, restaurants, and what Austin is most known for: live music and entertainment.
Federal APD ScanNet Self-ParkingThe Federal APD ScanNet self-parking application includes their new Access and Revenue Control product line, made up of a Universal One ticket dispenser, a credit card exit verifier, two automated pay stations, and their barrier gates. Proximity cards and hotel room keys can also be used for garage access.
We are delighted to install another integrated system with CVPS and ScanNet. The success weve experienced at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando, another combined valet and self-park system, provides us an excellent base for this upcoming installation. With this combination, we capitalize on the strengths of each company to provide the client with the best possible solution, said Andy Preas, President, Service Tracking Systems.
