Scalable and Fully-Integrated the IPS Permit Management Solution handles the entire permit lifecycle from design through fulfillment, and allows for real-time validation of vehicle registration information via an integration with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), provided by IPS.
The IPS Data Management System (DMS) allows parking professionals to remotely monitor their entire parking network from anywhere, at any time.
The DMS provides a comprehensive set of financial, technical, and administrative reporting features paired with remote meter configuration, and allows managers to seamlessly manage an entire parking meter network with ease.
Fully-Integrated with the IPS Smart Parking Platform, sensors can influence strategic data-driven policy decisions to make your parking program more successful, and can help increase revenue by an average of 25%–50%.
The Bluetooth enabled PARK SMARTER™ mobile app allows users to pay and extend parking session remotely and manage an entire parking session from their smartphone.
With its integration with the IPS Data Management System (DMS), cities can manage parking policy with live alerts, as well as reporting and data analytics across both meters and the mobile app.
The IPS Pay Station Upgrade Kits are designed to retrofit existing pay stations, maximizing current investment and infrastructure while upgrading to the latest parking meter technology.
Designed with the service technician in mind, the modular components can be easily removed, serviced, and replaced with no more than a screwdriver.
IPS, in collaboration with Honda and Visa, introduces a revolutionary breakthrough in parking – an end-to-end in-vehicle mobile payment parking solution that eliminates the hassle of digging for change or leaving the vehicle to feed the meter.
With full control at their fingertips, drivers complete the entire process using the in-vehicle dashboard with just the touch of a button.
The Smart Collection System offers cash collections accountability and accurate revenue tracking, transparency to the meter audit, and access to collections data from anywhere, at any time, with real-time transmission through wireless communication.
IPS smart meters can integrate with any third-party vendor. At the heart of the IPS DMS is a database structure and associated web services that can exchange information as specified in either a real time format (such as XML) or batch files in a pre-determined time frame (such as daily CSV). IPS has successfully demonstrated this capability in multiple locations and projects.
