Schweers Technologies upgrades Niagara Falls, NY’s enforcement operation
- Category: News
Handwritten citations are replaced by a fully automatic solution featuring the new X7 handheld device. A first in the United States, we are proud to introduce our new ergonomically designed X7 unit designed and manufactured by Schweers. The X7 is Android based with a built in 5 mega pixel camera, 3” thermal printer, 2 D bar code reader, LPR, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth.
Niagara Fall’s solution is integrated with Parkeon’s Pay by Plate Kiosks and Whoosh Pay by Phone application. The handheld queries the Parkeon server and receives the most current plate status for each license plate in question. In addition, each plate is automatically checked against a current scofflaw list and officers are given an immediate alert if a match is found. Unlimited photos can be taken and linked to the ticket data. The 2 D bar code scanner is used to scan the vin code which prepopulates the handheld with information about the vehicle – plate, expiration date etc.
This is a fully web hosted solution with easy access for authorized administrators from any laptop, computer, phone etc. All ticket data is sent to Niagara Fall’s back office for post processing.
The robust X7 can meet and exceed the demands of this city’s harsh and snowy winters yet hot, humid summers.
Niagara Falls is currently visited by almost ten million people each year, with the waterfall considered one of the United States' top ten tourist destinations.
