Genetec Ships AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync Feature Targeted for the Parking Enforcement Industry
Genetec, a pioneer in the physical security industry and a leading provider of world-class unified IP security solutions, is now shipping its new Pay-by-Plate Sync feature for AutoVu, the license plate recognition (LPR) system of Security Center, the company’s unified security platform. The Genetec AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync feature offers an open-architecture approach that simplifies the process of creating an end-to-end pay-by-plate (PBP) solution, allowing customers to select and integrate different parking systems that are otherwise non-compatible; including parking and permit management systems, parking meters and pay-by-phone solutions.
Many parking-payment systems are not designed to be compatible or to integrate with disparate systems, and often have little-to-no levels of integration. By acting as a central aggregating database, AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync uses the license plate number as the key identifier, and works with a wide variety of parking permit types, including residential permits, university semester permits, employee permits and shared permits, as well as transient parking transactions from pay stations and pay-by-phone systems.
Genetec AutoVu supports the following parking technology suppliers: T2 Systems, Cale, Parkmobile, Parkeon, Aparc Systems, Digital Payment Technologies, PayByPhone and Global Parking Solutions. Additional partner integrations that leverage the Genetec open platform architecture are being added in the coming months.
"Genetec AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync was designed to help our customers integrate, unify, and automate their parking systems in the most efficient and cost effective way for easy management, administration, and use for both the vendor and customer," said Chris Yigit, Senior Product Manager for AutoVu at Genetec.
The new AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync feature is already being deployed at several customer installations, due to go live by end of summer 2013.
