Warwick upgrades to web back office system

Warwick District Council is the latest local authority to upgrade to the new Metric ASLAN Web Back Office system.
The council will be going live with their new web based solution and parking services manager Gary Charlton believes it will be a worthwhile investment.

He said he will appreciate being able to log in to the system from the comfort of his own desk and it would be a bonus to have it linked through the IT system.

He said it would greatly benefit office staff, who were in one location, and enforcement, who were in another, who could equally sit at their own desk and log in for information.

Another plus is that a shopping centre, for whom we manage the car park, will also be able to log in themselves to view their own machines which will be handy from their point of view.

The councils stock of pay and display ticket machines in 22 car parks in three towns, Kenilworth, Warwick and Leamington, will be networked. Warwick DC has 48 of the Metric Accent A3s, four of the A2s and seven Auto-Slots.

Metric has a new leaflet on their web based solution which is available from their Swindon headquarters. The leaflet highlights the benefits of the new software features of the system which also retains the effective tools of the previous ALERT and STATS products.

The solution offers a single user interface where users are able to perform their tasks without the need to start or switch independent applications. Day to day tasks are now performed using a web browser.

The user interface no longer needs to be pc based with the information being viewed in a web browser. Many mobile devices can be used when the system is opened up to the internet.

The latest Microsoft technologies allow the ASLAN web applications to be installed with minimal fuss, providing control and security when installed on existing network infrastructures.

Added Gary Charlton: Because of our corporate IT systems, security measures in the past wouldnt allow for the ASLAN system to be placed on the mainframe so we had to have a standalone pc in one location which meant those in our satellite base couldnt log into it.

Now everyone at their desk will be able to log in and get information. It will be far easier than it was.
