T2 Systems' PermitNow Speeds Parking Transactions and Improves Revenue Control for High-Traffic, Event Parking

PermitNow Makes it Easy to Issue Permits and Receipts in the Field, Improve Traffic Flow, Enforce Staff Accountability, and Increase Revenue.
t2logo.gifT2 Systems, Inc., a leading provider of parking management software, hardware and consulting services, introduces PermitNow for issuing parking permits and receipts, while improving revenue and staff accountability. The stand-alone system saves convention and special event facilities time and money.

With PermitNow, parking attendants can issue permits and receipts in seconds. PermitNow also makes accepting cash, check, credit card and debit card payments in the field easy and trackable. Its fast transaction time improves overall traffic flow during congested event parking. Further, the system assists facility management with staff accountability by minimizing the opportunity for theft—without sacrificing parker convenience.

Using a lightweight handheld ticketwriter and mobile printer, attendants can issue uniquely numbered permits. PermitNow in-office software runs on a traditional PC workstation and allows organization to generate reports, track transactions, program handheld configurations and export information.

According to Mike Simmons, CEO for T2 Systems, "Reconciliation and management of parking revenue for concerts, sporting events and conventions, can be inefficient and costly for facility management who do not have portable revenue control equipment."

PermitNow cuts reconciliation time through the timely production of detailed, comprehensive tracking reports. The reports outline revenue generated by each cashier noting the payment method for all transactions. Tracking each transaction improves staff accountability and limits the opportunity for revenue loss.

T2 Systems recently partnered with Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) to test the equipment. During their 2004 Cinco de Mayo event, two cashiers using the PermitNow handheld software issued 325 permits and accepted cash and credit card transactions. With a two-to-three screen tap sequence, the cashier recorded payment, issued a permit, then allowed the vehicle to park. On average, permits were issued in under eight seconds.

John Nolte, Director of Parking Operations at the GICC, currently manages 5,000 parking spaces on surface lots. "PermitNow has the potential to save any parking operation significant money by reducing shrinkage," says Nolte. "With such a large amount of revenue being generated remotely, a remedy is a must."
