Cincinnati Time of Maine in collaboration with Amano McGann have been contracted to upgrade the Parking Access and Revenue Control System (PARCS) at Portland International Jetport.
Tom Kane, chief technical officer at Cincinnati Time of Maine, commented, “The Jetport’s current Amano McGann machines have handled over 15 years of heavy use. Their continued operation is a testament to the longevity of Amano McGann products paired with the first-rate level of long-term care provided by Cincinnati Time of Maine. We look forward to keeping the Portland International Jetport as a customer and upgrading them to OPUSeries®.” The project will incorporate 23 new gates, and all existing pay-in-lane stations, POS terminals and ticket dispensers will be replaced.
The Jetport will also take advantage of Amano McGann’s eFlexPrint® and eParcVal® validation systems. Businesses located inside Portland International Jetport will have the opportunity to provide parking validations for their customers. Until now, validations were only available through the Jetport’s offices.
“Amano Corporation is proud to be a part of the Portland International Jetport’s parking system since the early 1990’s,” said Mike Hanney, Amano McGann’s vice president of Eastern Region dealer sales, “We look forward to continuing to provide patron-oriented technology that simplifies parking operations.” To further enhance convenience for the patron and operator, a new mobile license plate recognition system will be incorporated. Where the current system requires manual key entry of license plates, this new system uses cameras mounted to the sides of a vehicle. License plate inventory is then accomplished by driving through the facility, allowing the plates to be captured by the cameras and saving the operator a considerable amount of time.
“The Portland International Jetport has been a longstanding customer of Cincinnati Time of Maine and Amano McGann, and is pleased to continue this relationship with these significant upgrades to our Parking Access and Revenue Control System”, said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director. “I know these upgrades will provide significant customer service enhancements and improve the efficiency of our parking management operations.”
