In recent years, we have already had the privilege of equipping several car park objects with camera systems for number plate recognition and have thus been able to push the use of digital parking products.
With the conversion of the parking management system in the high-frequency inner city car park Stepgesstraße / Minto Süd to a Free Flow solution from Scheidt & Bachmann Parking Solutions, the digitalisationaof parking in Mönchengladbach continues to progress. Free Flow means parking without a ticket and without barriers, even with high parking pressure in the surrounding area. A completely new entry and exit experience for users, parking becomes even more relaxed and pleasant. Upon entry, a camera records the car registration number, which is stored in the system for determining and paying for the parking time. This can then be paid at one of the new pay stations, after entering the registration number, without cash using a bank or credit card or digitally via the pay station app. This eliminates the need to search for suitable coins or banknotes in the future.

Payment can then be made from the comfort of your own home within 48 hours.

"As a pioneer in the field of digital parking, we are very pleased that more and more operators are relying on our digital solutions - this not only means many benefits such as cost reduction and efficiency gains for car park operators, but also a pleasant experience for parking customers from entry to exit," says Ulrich Fleps, Managing Director of Scheidt & Bachmann Parking Solutions Germany.

It should also be emphasised that the conversion was carried out during ongoing operations. Due to its prime location near the MINTO shopping centre and a large number of medical facilities, the car park is highly frequented. The conversion phases were adapted to the degree of occupancy. Much to the delight of the regular guests, who could continue to use their accustomed car park.
At this point we would like to spread some anticipation: We have already received a promise that the Stepge
