As the final semester of 2013 comes to a close at Curtin University, CellOPark, a provider of Pay-by-App parking solutions is praised by both users and industry peers for its ground-breaking implementation of multiple integrated systems that have greatly improved parking for the University and its motorists.
CellOPark announced today their ground-breaking solution has been described by local and international parking consultants as a “World First” for the level of integration with multiple technologies such as Pay-by-App, Pay-by-Phone, License Plate Recognition, Parking Guidance and Identity databases.
During a mobile or online CellOPark sign-up process, motorists providing a student or staff number are authenticated against the university’s systems and their account is tagged as to the locations where they are permitted to park. Members then pay using the CellOPark app on their smartphone, their online account or by calling a local phone number. License Plate Recognition systems installed in university patrol vehicles as well as Parking Guidance Systems throughout the 287 acre Bentley campus, are in constant communication with the centralised cloud-based CellOPark databases, allowing real-time signage updates and checks of parked vehicles by security and enforcement staff.
“Looking back at previous years, the manner in which we have been able to offer equitable and convenient parking in 2013 is no comparison to our previous permit-based systems” said Graham Arndt Director of Asset Management at Curtin. “The integrated solution from CellOPark and their specialist contractors has exceeded our goals and expectations. The project cost came in at about thirty five percent of what we would have had to budget for a traditional system of pay-stations, ticket machines and barrier arms” said Arndt.
CellOPark developers continue to enhance the solution with new features being released regularly. Brad, a student and a user of CellOPark at Curtin University recently wrote “I'm really pleased that you have updated the app with so many useful features. It now it feels easier to use and UI looks very nice. Keep up the good work.”
“Technology is moving at an ever increasing pace, affecting almost every industry including parking” states Michael Doherty, General Manager of CellOPark Australia. “We are seeing a lot of interest from Councils and University’s as their motorists rely more on their smartphones and live constantly connected lives. Chalked tyres and feeding parking meters is destined to become a thing of the past with our interconnected and revolutionary solutions”
CellOPark Australia, headquartered in Sydney, is Australia’s leading Pay-by-App and Pay-By-Phone parking provider. Every day thousands of CellOPark members enjoy the convenience of using their mobile phone to pay for a car space rather than feeding coins or credit cards into a traditional parking meter.
