Since gaining card processing certification with the Canadian Moneris bank processor, CreditCall has seen a dramatic rise in the number of Canadian parking terminals that are being equipped with the company’s CardEase credit card payment system.
Parking machine manufacturers Parkeon and MacKay Meters both offer the CreditCall service to their Canadian customers and there are now approaching 600 machines live in the country. The largest installed base is in the city of Toronto although there are installations in London, Barrie and Brampton (Ontario), and Quebec.
Canadian motorists in these cities no longer have to worry about having enough change to park for the time they need. The CardEase system securely authorises every transaction online with the bank, protecting the operator against card fraud.
MacKay Meters’ customer, Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, has recently added credit card payment to their parking scheme. Assistant facilities manager Marion Dietze commented, “I’m very happy with this system. It has certainly increased our revenue with credit cards being used. Customers often purchase more parking than needed but they feel comfortable with this choice.”
Regarding the CreditCall WebMIS transaction management system, she added, “The reporting system is easy to follow for my staff, and they can produce daily or monthly reports. I would suggest to others to use it!”
