Smart parking start-up ParkCo chooses Melitron to design and manufacture digital kiosks Tablet and touchscreen kiosks with Samsung HD screens are deployed in skyscrapers and office buildings in the innovation district of Kitchener
GUELPH, Ontario, September 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – ParkCo, a technology start-up from Kitchener, Ontario and a spin-off company of Momentum Developments, has selected Melitron Corporation of Guelph to manufacture smart kiosks with high-profile Samsung digital displays. definition for ParkCo’s InsightPay (TM) “Tap-and-Go” paperless and cashless parking solution. Digital kiosks have already been installed at a skyscraper in the Kitchener Innovation District, and more locations are planned in southwestern Ontario.
“The parking industry is known for its archaic and bulky hardware,” said Bryan Hopps, CEO of ParkCo. “ParkCo is changing that and making parking management sustainable. Melitron’s digital signage and kiosk designs fit our vision perfectly.
“Melitron is a great partner for ParkCo’s forward thinking approach,” said Jennifer Steele, Business Development at ParkCo. “We clicked immediately after meeting at their headquarters and touring their impressive facility. Their designs are stylish and already tried, tested and verified by some of Canada’s top drive-thru restaurants.
ParkCo’s first Melitron kiosk installation took place last month in a mixed-use tower at 1 Victoria Street in downtown Kitchener. The Melitron tablet series outdoor kiosks with a single 55-inch Samsung high-definition display are located just inside the parking lot entrance and exit. Visitors are greeted with digital promotional content and parking instructions on the kiosk screen, then press their credit card on entry and exit with time stamps and payment is processed automatically through a payment system MONEXgroup secure and fully integrated. Entry and exit to private parking lots for residents and office workers is automated using license plate recognition cameras as part of ParkCo’s InsightSecure (TM) solution. ParkCo also offers advanced orientation solutions and occupancy metrics, all with the goal of generating more revenue and increasing the value of parking assets.
A second InsightPay kiosk installation is underway at Momentum Development’s new 150,000 square foot brick and beam office complex, also in downtown Kitchener. Two Melitron kiosks, a series of outdoor tablets with a single 55-inch Samsung high-definition display and one with a 32-inch Samsung high-definition touchscreen with integrated payment terminal, will be installed later this year to support 500- parking space for office workers, residents and the general public.
InsightPay can be used in tandem with ParkCo’s InsightDetect analytics platform, a smart AI engine that learns parking lot usage patterns, allowing owners to choose to sell more parking cards in the event of public, semi-private or mixed car parks. This reduces the number of vacancies, optimizes the use of the parking lot and increases daily income. Think of it as “carpooling” parking for office buildings, mixed-use and residential condos.
“ParkCo is an innovative real estate technology start-up that is building smarter parking lots and smarter cities for increased parking capacity in high density areas,” said Mike Turner, President and CEO of Melitron. “We are delighted to be the exclusive supplier of digital kiosks for such an innovative company. “
The durable kiosks stand just over 64 inches tall, are dent and scratch resistant with a steel frame, aluminum panels and a powder coated finish to withstand wear and tear from public use and weathering. abuse. Fully customizable kiosks may vary in format, size, function, color and graphics depending on location and site needs. Semi-outdoor and outdoor models are available.
