Virtualised Permits

By leveraging ANPR technology, we’re able to help you manage the parking on your site using a powerful virtual permit system.

A virtualised permit system is especially beneficial to car parks juggling several different user types – for instance, an educational facility supporting students, staff, visitors and suppliers. Integration with ANPR enables your business to manage/allocate thousands of virtual permits at once, from anywhere, via a responsive dashboard.

Our permit system provides a powerful suite of tools to any business looking to manage their parking in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner.

Parking management software

Our web-based parking management software and parking permit application/allocation system allow you to move away from managing parking permits with paper applications, which is often very time-intensive and costly in terms of labour and printing the physical permits. Our easy to use software is designed so that it can be configured to meet the unique needs of each client, making it easy for you to define workflow processes, approval steps and permit types which are specific to your organisation.

Why use our web-based permit management software?

  • All-in-one system from application to approval and payment
  • Applications are made directly into the system, meaning admin staff do not have to duplicate this information from paper applications
  • Permits become digital and are managed via the integrated system, removing the risk of motorists making copies of paper permits
  • Full tracking of changes to information by administrator/user/permit holder on the system
  • Issuing of permits based on scoring criteria set out by the client – making sure those who really need the permits are allocated first
  • Provides the motorist with all the rules of their permit via email and through the secure log-in, removing excuses for unauthorised parking
  • Ensures the motorist is kept up to date with the stages of their permit application and status/rules once approved or denied
  • Allows communication to all permit holders in case of car park changes, reminders of rules about changing vehicle etc.
  • Links with ANPR technology that monitors the car parks on-site, meaning permits automatically get added to the authorised car parks and become live straight away, once authorised

Our system complements our existing car park management services and can be used in conjunction with your own permit management system. By linking with our ANPR systems, we provide the ability to automatically populate approved vehicle lists and authorise parking on a site that is managed and enforced via our ANPR technology.

Our handheld devices (using the PARKS app) are also integrated with the permit management system. This allows attendants on sites, with or without ANPR management, to perform a quick look-up of valid permits on-site, effectively providing the ability to implement a parking management system with virtual permits.
