DIY Ticketing - Gold - Overview of PCN Issue

PCN Issue / Smart Mobile Device

Evidence, Accuracy and Speed are all crucial factors for the efficient issue and enforcement of a Parking Charge Notice. Hand written PCNs are prone to errors due to inaccuracies or illegible hand writing. Our Smart Mobile Device captures and records contraventions in a controlled manner, providing incontestable time stamped photographic evidence, accurate vehicle and contravention details and access to PCN details within minutes of the PCN being issued. Using the latest mobile device and communication technology, provides unprecedented functionality and incredible value for money.

Cost Effective

Our system is designed to work on low-cost, mass produced hardware. No need for custom hardware which soon becomes obsolete and expensive to replace. All devices can be customised to suit the customer’s requirements and working environment with a range of protective cases to provide additional protection against the elements.

 

Simple Operation

Our system is designed from the ground up to be easy and intuitive to use. No need for long training sessions and refresher courses to keep operatives up to speed with data entry devices, utilises mobile phone technology used every day by millions of people.

 

Issue Authorisation Control

Access to each device is controlled via a simple login screen. The operative is always identified to a device allowing the system to control how each PCN / Warning Notice is issued. Access control is centrally managed by Client Web allowing each device to be continually updated remotely and configured without any reconfiguration of the handheld device.

 

Locations and Sites

Operatives can simply switch between locations they are allocated to work at. All other location related data required to issue a PCN is then automatically recorded against the PCN at the point of issue. Only enforceable contraventions can be selected based on site rules, client wishes and signage. These are defined on Client Web and sent to the handheld making it impossible for an operative to issue a PCN for a contravention which has not been authorised.

 

Image Capture

By utilising the handheld inbuilt camera, the need for operatives to carry a digital camera is removed.
As many images as required can be taken and are automatically associated with the PCN at the point of issue. The task of posting, downloading and indexing images from digital cameras is no longer required.

 

Enforced Observation Time

At locations where an observation time is required, the system can be configured to prevent the issue of a PCN until the vehicle has been logged and a specified observation time expired.

 

Contraventions

A comprehensive list of predefined contraventions is built into the system which can be expanded and tailored to your requirements. Additional information such as P&D expiry time can be added to ensure all relevant data is captured by the operative when issuing a PCN. Vehicle Overstay / Free Time is handled using our overstay module that allows vehicle details to be recorded and checked at intervals during the day.

 

Warning Notices

Certain environments require a more tolerant approach to enforcement. Our system can be setup to monitor logged vehicles and issue warning notifications to first time offenders. Remember its your car park so your choice.

 

Vehicle Logging and Notification

All vehicle details are logged and tracked within the system. This enables notifications about specific vehicles to be given to the operative, allowing them to make informed decisions about how they handle individual cases. This can help control how repeat offenders are dealt with or how the operative handles vehicles with a known history.

 

Latest Mobile & Communication Technology

Enforcement activity data is transferred to our servers and Client Web via the internet using the latest GPRS or G3 communication technology. All transfers are made automatically by the handheld at regular intervals. Docking stations and complex data transfer procedures become a thing of the past.

 

Autonomous Operation

Our Smart Mobile Device is designed to operate without a permanent internet connection. This allows operatives to work in locations where mobile web access is limited or unavailable. The system automatically detects when connectivity is available and processes data transmissions during these times.

Administrative staff can easily view detailed information about the handheld via Client Web and the system will indicate when a device last communicated with the server.

 

Secure

Connectivity and data transmission is encrypted and sent over an SSL connection to the server. No personal details are stored on the mobile device and access is controlled via a user id and password. Parking Charge Notice data is only stored on the device for a short period and automatically deleted after a predetermined time.
