Compliance integrates with NSW State government program
In a move to streamline the management of parking infringement collection, The Hills Shire Council in New South Wales has introduced integrated parking compliance technology solution, vCompliance, to work in conjunction with
the NSW State Government’s Print and Post program.
vCompliance, which is one of several products offered by award winning Australian parking technology company, Smarter City Solutions, is a platform that is used by parking officers to record and then send the necessary evidence to Revenue NSW, who are then able to expedite the parking fine straight to the motorist in a more timely manner.
The integration of this technology replaces the more traditional, manual method of processing infringement notices, which is known for creating ongoing delays and a less than satisfactory experience for motorists and councils alike.
General Manager of The Hills Shire Council, Michael Edgar said the program is the perfect example of looking for ways to use technology to improve processes which provide better service delivery, reliability and quality in an environment that also enhances safety.
“The Print and Post program provides a seamless solution, making it more efficient whilst maintaining accuracy,” Mr Edgar said.
“As this technology becomes proven over time, I am confident other regulators will see the advantages,”
Michael Doherty, Head of Business Development for Smarter City Solutions, said, “The Smarter City Solutions team are leaders in tailoring solutions for our clients by developing intelligent and customised technologies which can be integrated with both contemporary and legacy systems.
“In NSW, it is mandatory that local councils submit evidence of a parking infringement to the government in order for Revenue NSW to issue the fine, which is a hassle for councils and causes an unnecessary
burden for motorists.”
“vCompliance minimises the input required by a Council into the process and ensures that they can confidently opt in to Revenue NSW’s new initiative and expect a seamless and streamlined parking infringement process.”
vCompliance has multiple applications and is a scalable solution for municipalities that allows efficient and resilient mobile parking enforcement. License plate recognition technology is integrated with a smartphone enforcement app, real-time data verification and Bluetooth belt printers to facilitate seamless issuance of infringements and parking audits.
