Exit control is often overlooked. However, exit terminals support entry point strategies and reduce bottlenecks.
Here are a few strategies that consider parking systems at both access points.
Shopping malls and other high-capacity retail parking environments depend upon ease of use. Shoppers and guests want to find a spot, enjoy some leisurely shopping and then leave at the speed of light.
A car park serves customer needs when there are:
- Variety of Payment Options
- Multiple Ticket Stations
- Control Barriers
- Clear Communication
Variety of Payment Options
Customised car park payment systems to suit a variety of needs. From the customer standpoint, the option to pay with banknotes, coins, debit, credit or contactless payments makes payment simple. APTL Payment Machines are configured to accept a wide range of payments.
When customers are able to pay quickly, traffic flows into the park without a hitch.
Multiple Ticket Stations
Some shopping centres need numerous entry-exit ticket terminals. Others may need only a few, but those must be strategically placed.
A study of traffic control, vehicle choice, amount of time shoppers spend at the location and the number of employees needed in the car park are all taken into account.
Control barriers keep staff and clients safe. Even customers that exit parks at the speed of light will appreciate control barriers. Especially when it means they avoid an accident.
A range of control barriers styles makes it easy to choose the best exit-entry control for your location. Some are designed for narrow spaces. Others emphasize durability and security. While others can be used for foot traffic or cyclists.
Entry-exit ticket terminals are more than payment stations. For unattended car parks, stations like the VT exit ticket terminal act as a central point for customers. When customers need help or expect service they look to these pieces of technology.
Ticket terminals are configured for many uses. LCDs inform customers of sales and promotions. They can generate maps of the area. They can be used as a communication device for security.
Terminals are often available 24/7. Here are a few services they provide in the off-hours and during peak times:
- 2 x 20 characters LCD Blue & White Display
- IP / GSM Intercom / Third Party Integration option
