Metric will be featuring their innovative cashless technology at Traffex 2011. Amongst a total of nine pay-and-display parking machines on their 120m stand will be an Aura cashless machine as well as the brand new Metric Mobile.
“We are fast becoming a cashless society and we are meeting the needs of the market with a product which is a cashless machine,” said Richard Boultbee, Metric’s UK sales and marketing manager. “The advent of contactless credit / debit card payments will have an impact on coin payments over the coming years. The public will decide how they want to pay for parking and we are providing them with the cashless option.”
He said the introduction of Metric Mobile to their portfolio of parking products meant that operators now had the biggest-ever choice of parking payment options via Metric systems.
“Metric Mobile is the new way to pay for parking, allowing customers to pay on their mobile phone using a credit or debit card,” Boultbee added. “The benefits for the customer are instant. No need for change or dealing with tickets on windscreens. And for the parking operator the benefits include a completely managed online web service.”
