Parkeon, a global provider of smart city solutions has announced that it has deployed a new smart parking system to the City of Norman, OK. The system includes multi-space parking meters, mobile parking payments, and the Parkeon CLOUD system. The purpose of the system is to help the City better manage its parking space inventory, while providing a high level of customer convenience.
The Parkeon Strada multi-space meters in Norman are configured for Pay by Space parking. The meters are solar powered and feature a full color 7” display screen to help quickly guide users through each parking transaction. The meters accept coins and credit/debit cards.
Included in the multi-space parking meter solution, are two of Parkeon’s CLOUD services, City News and Validation Codes. City News will help the City push out news, events and other information in real-time, allowing the new parking technology to alert or inform residents and visitors of various happenings around the city. The Validation Codes system allows the City the flexibility to offer local merchants a convenient way to validate parking for their clients and employees.
To add another level of customer convenience, the City chose to implement Parkeon’s Whoosh! mobile parking payment system. Whoosh! allows users the ability to pay for their parking from anywhere and extend time remotely before their parking session expires. The solution can be accessed through the Whoosh iPhone and Android app or through www.whooshstore.com.
“The new parking system in Norman really showcases how Parkeon delivers advanced technology with the end user in mind,” said Benoit Reliquet, President of Parkeon, Inc.. “We are really excited that we can provide convenient ways to pay for parking while giving the City the chance to promote local events and news.”
The City of Norman will be supported locally by Parkeon’s distribution partner, Wetherbee Electric.
