Lauderdale-By-The-Sea awards new pay station contract to Global Parking Solutions

July 2013

Commissioners at Lauderdale-By-The-Sea recently awarded a contract for new parking pay stations to Global Parking Solutions.

Key to the decision was the total cost of ownership over a 5 year period. The Metropolis terminals cost 65% less per year to operate than the nearest rival, and significantly cheaper when compared to a Single Space Meter solution.

The Metropolis Parking Terminal is a state-of-the-art, multi-space parking terminals featuring award winning design and lightning-fast credit card processing. All information on the Metro is communicated to a back office system in real time via the cellular network. This allows the city to view the statuses of the machines at any time as well as using the very powerful real-time reporting functionality.

Motorists will also benefit from the terminals quick and simple to use interface. The interface is built around the user and is centric to its design incorporating a large graphical screen which uses icon based menus and instructions. The terminals provide multiple payment options including Coins, Bills and Credit Cards, with credit card processing being the fastest, and most secure of any multi-space terminal on the market today.
