Politess Office ™ - Effective Parking Enforcement

The automobile industry has grown to be one of the biggest in the world. With an ever increasing volume of cars on the road, the cost of the average parking space can be greater than the cost of the average car. Since the very beginning, there have been restrictions on where, when and for how long cars can be parked. As with any form of restriction, to be effective there must be a way to enforce it.

Politess Office ™ is a service tool, designed to help private operators, city authorities and police to enforce parking regulations efficiently and effectively. Correct enforcement ensures the respect of the parking regulations leading to improved public safety, increased traffic flow and increased availability of legal parking spaces.

Offence data can be collected by traffic wardens or police using a handheld computer which is capable of printing a paper ticket to be left at the vehicle. The intelligence of the handheld ensures that a variety of checks are made on the data, all but eliminating incorrect entries and ensuring the confidence of the court system for a valid fine. All important entry fields such as streets, citation details and special license plates are present in the handheld ensuring immediate feedback and correction for invalid entries.

The data is transferred from all of the handhelds, either overnight or immediately via GPRS, to a central PC from which it can be sent on to one of many different back end financial processing systems. This data is also archived within Politess Office ™ to be available for our flexible and powerful statistical reporting tool.

Some of the more recent features such as colour camera and GPS can dramatically improve both the accuracy and the reliability of the citation, necessary in today’s increasingly litigious society. Using mobile data communication, the units can even communicate in real time to one of the many mobile phone parking solutions available in the market today.

By automating the mobile data processing, the work of the officer on the street can be optimized minimizing data entry errors and increasing efficiency.

As any officer on the street will confirm, to be an effective on street Police PDA, it should be possible to enter data in weather conditions ranging from bright sunlight to heavy rain; and a similar range of temperatures. Once entered, it must be possible to print the citation quickly and efficiently without relying on external devices. The unit must, of course, be resilient to that wide range of knocks and scrapes it can experience in a day on the street.

With fully integrated thermal printers, camera, alpha-numeric keyboard and, of course, street resilient construction, both the flagship X600 handheld and smaller, but equally impressive Ticketman are designed to be used. A wealth of other options ensures a future proof choice.
