AUSTRALIA, Wednesday 23rd July, 2014 — CellOPark announced today that their integrated ticket-less “Pay as You Go” parking solution first deployed in January 2013 at Curtin University in Western Australia has received an Award of Merit from The International Parking Institute (IPI), the largest association of parking industry professionals in the world. Representatives from both Curtin University and CellOPark Australia recently attended the IPI 2014 Expo in Dallas Texas where the awards for innovation in the parking industry were announced.

“We knew that the technical integration work linking Pay-by-Phone, Pay-by-App, Student / Staff databases, Licence Plate Recognition and Way-finding signage systems for the Curtin University PAYG solution was innovative” said Michael Doherty General Manager of CellOPark Australia “To receive this international recognition is confirmation that all involved should be very proud. Technology is playing an ever-increasing role in the efficient and effective management of parking and as we see more software based solutions come to market with an ability to integrate via industry standard API’s, we also see an ability to deliver a unified and cohesive solution to parking providers and their motorist users.”

We are seeing an increasing amount of interest from other campus based parking providers as well as local councils. When deciding between traditional hardware based parking solutions and making use of the technology in almost every motorists pocket, CellOPark is an easy decision to make, especially for a student demographic” Said Doherty

To use CellOPark, motorists install a free native app on their Apple or Android smartphone and register vehicle, phone and payment details to create an account. Starting a paid parking session is then simply a matter of selecting a matching zone in the app and pressing ‘start’ or pointing the phones camera at a QR code on CellOPark Signage. Non smartphone users can also enjoy the convenience of the CellOPark system by registering for free at
www.cellopark.com.au and calling the sign posted number with caller ID enabled and following the prompts.Parking officers enforce the ticketless parking by checking vehicle licence plates in the system using their own internet connected devices and Vehicle mounted License Plate Recognition technology.
