SKIDATA IMPLEMENTS FIRST TICKETLESS PARKING SYSTEM IN AUSTRALIA 

8 December 2015

The Austrian company SKIDATA is one of the world‘s leading providers of access solutions and visitor management with representation across 73 counties. Over 10,000 installations provide quick and secure access for people at shopping centres, major airports, cities, sport stadiums, event precincts and commercial car parking. 

SKIDATA Australasia , the subsidiary of SKIDATA Austria, has recently implemented an innovative solution at Westfield Miranda Shopping Centre to shift away from a traditional ticket based parking access control system to a ticketless parking solution which gives the shoppers higher convenience.

This cutting edge access control system was developed in Australia and relies on license plate recognition technology to record the customers’ number plate details on entry, logging the time of entry against the number plate which becomes the key identifier in lieu of a paper ticket.

Furthermore a purpose built digital eco system was implemented to support the overall shopper journey; e.g. users can check elapsed parking time from their smart phones. After user registration an SMS notification is received on entry and payment can be processed via a linked credit card. This flagship site is the first large scale high transaction deployment of its kind globally to control a car park in a completely ticketless environment.
