Warrendale, PA (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
CTR Systems, Inc. (CTR) and QuickPay Corp. have just made getting in and out of the parking garage as easy as sending a text with your phone. Thanks to a new partnership between the two companies, consumers parking in downtown and university garages and airport parking facilities will find parking struggles to be a thing of the past.
QuickPay, the company that made finding and paying for parking easier, is now totally integrated with CTR’s car park management solution, WebPARCS™. QuickPay’s mobile payment solution, QP QuickPay®, provides consumers with convenience when entering and exiting parking garages. The process is fast and safe because drivers do not have to worry about having cash or running their credit cards through the system. In addition, QP QuickPay® lets drivers skip the lines at pay-stations or cashiers and proceed directly to the exit gate. The systems can also be set up to enable QP QuickPay® users to exit via monthly only gates, further speeding up time to exit for everyone. The entire parking transaction is handled by phone via the free QP QuickPay® smartphone app, available for iPhone® and Android™, or by SMS text or a phone call.
QuickPay also offers parking managers a way to track and reward frequent parkers. Every time consumers use QP QuickPay®, they can earn valuable points toward future discounts and free parking.
Parking operators benefit from this integration by offering consumers the convenience of paying by phone and gaining more knowledge about their parkers while having visibility into their entire operation through the WebPARCS™ Dashboard. All customer transactions including mobile, credit card, cash, and monthly parking are captured and reported in WebPARCS™ providing a simple operations management, revenue reporting, and auditing.
“We’re excited to be working with QuickPay on the delivery of their mobile payment solution,” said Roger Slayton, Executive Vice President, CTR Systems. “Our focus on developing innovative solutions that serve the parking industry aligns perfectly with QuickPay’s products and strategy to bring a truly unique capability to the market.”
CTR specializes in methods of tracking and collecting parking fees in a variety of settings from on-street parking locations, to surface lots, to garage complexes, including those at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. From system design and installation, to implementation and support, CTR offers clients full-service project management to streamline parking operations and meet changing needs.
“We are excited to partner with CTR, a leader in the parking industry known for delivering fully integrated solutions at high-volume and premium facilities,” said Barney Pell, Chairman and CEO, QuickPay. “Together, we will bring the benefits of fully integrated mobile payments technology to owners and customers of airports, universities, and cities at national scale.”
