So how does KAPS Cloud Systems work?

To better understand how this system functions, you will have to get acquitted with the three basic stages of the cloud that include:

    1. Initial site setup
    2. Site management
    3. Site reporting and analysis

The Initial Setup

Initial setup basically means creating a site from basically nothing. When doing this from the cloud system, you get a lot of tools at your disposal. Once all formal agreements are done, information based on requirements is used to set up the site. This includes:-

  • Assigning a Unique IP
  • Number of stations expected
  • Rates to be used etc.

These details are used to set up a new site, and all that remains is to have the stations delivered physically to the site.

Site Management

The Site management basically means having the power to change the setup properties of a site. Cloud system makes this very easy. All that is needed is an account with privileges. This way we can do the following on the go:

  • Change rates
  • Add holidays
  • Include new change denominations
  • Rename stations
  • Deactivate stations, not in use
  • Activate stations
  • Manage maximum amounts that can be used for change etc.

Other than major site configuration management we also have site operations management. This is where operators use tools to manage such operations as:

  • Change management i.e. refilling APS stations
  • Posting sales i.e. Posting physical sales against system recorded sales
  • Doing site reports
  • Tenant card management

Site Reporting and Analysis

Cloud basically brings out the fact that everything is available on the remote server especially data. This data can be used for analysis and reporting and guess what, you do not have to be at the site. We can get data that is not limited to:

  1. Traffic analysis
  2. Financial analysis
  3. Site health analysis, this is how active or stable the systems have been by means of checking critical errors in all parking components such as device offline, device out of token.
