Digital Payment Technologies Announces Real-Time Interface with Complus Data Handheld Devices
Friday, June 13, 2008
Vancouver, BC, June 13, 2008--(T-Net)--Digital Payment Technologies, a manufacturer of multi-space parking pay stations and online management systems, and Complus Data Innovations, a leader in the field of Parking Ticket Management solutions, have teamed up to provide wireless integration between DPT’s LUKE parking meter and CDI’s handheld enforcement devices. The partnership was unveiled at last week’s International Parking Institute Conference (IPI) in Dallas.
The integration enables municipalities, universities, and private parking operators to capture real-time information about paid and unpaid parking spaces in Pay By Space operations. The benefits include increasing the efficiency of enforcement officers, raising the accuracy in citation issuance, reducing customer service issues due to false citations, and positively impacting the environment with the elimination of paper-based reports.
“We are thrilled to offer this new capability to current customers already utilizing DPT pay stations,” said Stephen J. Hittman, CDI Chief Operating Officer. “Payment compliance and efficient parking enforcement are crucial to our customers’ bottom line. Anything we can offer to impact revenue in a positive way is welcomed by our customer base.” Hittman also noted: “Going forward, this will present tremendous advantages for both Complus and Digital as we continue to grow and search for new business opportunities.”
The integration between DPT parking meters and CDI’s enforcement devices was made possible by DPT’s Web Services application. DPT Web Services provides the tools required for third-party technology companies to pull real-time data for DPT’s Internet-based management system, Enterprise Management System (EMS). Additional applications can include the automated delivery of transaction information into parking operation accounting systems and the customized reporting in association with in-ground parking space sensor systems. DPT Web Services was launched in October 2007 and DPT expects there will be a significant growth in integration demonstrations over the next year. Cities like Milwaukee, WI, and Fredericton, NB, have already developed their own custom applications using the software platform.
“Technology integration was a theme at last year’s IPI, but very few companies in the industry were actually demonstrating how it could work,” stated Chris Chettle, DPT’s Vice President, Marketing. “We are very excited to work with CDI to deliver a tangible example of how industry players can work together and deliver expanded benefits to our mutual clients.”
