How Efficient is KAPS ANPR + Mobile App Technology?

Our systems are able to leverage on the Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and Mobile phone App technologies, that are used separately or in a combined manner, to ensure that customers have access to your premises. This technology linked to the KPAS parking platform (ARK) that is integrated to all payment terminals, the system is fully automated to bring the most sought after customer satisfaction and unparalleled parking experience.

How does KAPS ANPR + Mobile App technology function?

This system basically operates on a three-tiered procedure model (Entrance –Payment –Exit).

Entrance process: At the entrance, the vehicles presence is detected and the number plate and time stamp are captured via our ANPR camera along with a still image/Mobile phone App/ handheld point of entry. The remote management system captures the data and enters it into the Arc system and registers in on the entry record for validation.

GatelessPayment process: Depending on the site setting, customers can be able to pay using normal cashier mode or choose to pay through our seamless Mobile App P.o.S. At this particular stage, the clerk will enter the car registration plate on the mobile payment terminal, and the system will display the parking fee amount owing to the screen. Alternatively, the client can pay using KAPS cashless mobile payment option or our short USSD code option.

Exit process: As the vehicle approaches the exit point, it is detected, and an ANPR camera and validation are done automatically or through the mobile app exit point. Once the payment has been validated, the clerk is alerted, and they allow the vehicle to safely leave the car park. The details of any non-compliant vehicles are stored in our blacklist database for enforcement action.
