New back-office solutions improve parking profits

Parkeon is introducing a number of new end-to-end solutions on Stand P70 at Parkex 2009, including a flexible range of back-office services. These will reduce the cost of operating centralised management facilities for on and off-street parking operators by making the most widely used functions available for a cost-effective and all-inclusive monthly fee.
Among them is Parkfolio Easy, an entry-level module bundled with all Parkeon airtime packages. It provides a 2-page overview - via a web portal - of parking operations in an easily understood and regularly updated format. The program runs on Parkeons own back-office systems and is easily configurable to suit operators individual requirements. Parkfolio Easy features at the front end of Parkeons more comprehensive centralised management systems, too.
Also new from Parkeon is a back-office function that collates financial and statistical data from Pay & Display and Pay-on-Foot systems and integrates them into combined parking operation reports. A similar solution that integrates data from Pay & Display and mobile phone payment systems into a single financial report is also being introduced.
Parkfolio Control is a new and innovative module that provides a graphical representation of an on-street parking scheme. It splits this into zones, which are then highlighted individually upon interrogation, enabling managers to see at a glance how each sector of the parking estate is performing financially. Operators are able to identify zones in which parking revenues have fallen below average and see the cause, e.g. full cash boxes, empty ticket rolls, vehicles parked in excess of paid-for time, etc. Enforcement and/or service teams can then be directed, via SMS messages, to take the necessary action in order to optimise terminal up-times and parking revenues.
The approach to Parkeons web portal has been redesigned to make it even user-friendlier and enable operators to configure their own interface.
