Photo Violation Technologies will be working with IBM in the next few months to improve on their backend software, the Photo Violation Meterlink program.
While there are no flaws with the current software and past trail cities have been very pleased with it, CEO & President Fred Mitschele felt it was time to make some improvements on the backend software that had already impressed city officials and leaders of the parking industry. With more and more cities using the PVM, the new Meterlink will handle the increase in data traffic more efficiently, using less recourse and speeding up response times. Because the PVM is also becoming a global product, the new backend software will handle multi-currencies, as well as automatically adjusting for time zones and language issues. And as security, the new software will have global redundancy with multiple servers. This way, should one server in any part of the world ever fail, another server will automatically process the data in its place. The overall system designed by IBM will cost approximately 5 million USD.
