Integrated Intelligence:

May 17, 2017

Driven by innovation and committed to staying at the forefront of technology, DESIGNA has become a global technology leader in parking management systems. Our innovative and integrated equipment and software solutions make efficient parking management extremely easy on all new media.



The parking business is rapidly changing, with new opportunities arising all the time – opportunities that bring with them new possibilities. With a focus on continual enhancement of its systems and a strong development team, DESIGNA has a successful history of bringing ever more complex and intelligent solutions to market, establishing a clear reputation as an innovative company and a technological leader.


DESIGNA is taking its customers’ parking lots into the future, with a new digital and connected closeness to their parking customers. Digitalization is both an exciting challenge and an important opportunity. It is a trend that DESIGNA recognized years ago as the first to offer Cloud Services in parking management. It is also why DESIGNA for many years has designed product solutions in open system architecture and has set the standard for interconnectedness, security and flexibility. For many parking operators it is an essential shift in their thinking, as in recent years the basic framework of their business has changed, as have the expectations of customers. Some parking leaders, like The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), have seen the high-impact trends coming in parking management  and are now getting ready for the future with DESIGNA (News designa.com: http://www.designa.de/en/news/news/designa-is-awarded-contract-by-the-port-authority-of-new-york-and-new-jersey-panynj.html).


Seamless flow with Integrated Intelligence


Digitilization and the Internet have created a growing disruption of business models, increasing the speed of change. To achieve a seamless flow with all existing and future parking management solutions, a strong partner like DESIGNA is needed.


Perfect integrated intelligence and networking connectivity opens up new possibilities that we never dreamed of. This starts with a particularly high level of security in DESIGNA systems and includes the possibility of connecting additional parking areas in the blink of an eye to grow faster than the competition. Another opportunity is for increasing customer loyalty using the versatility of new digital media to achieve a greater market presence and make parking easier and more convenient through web & app services, and through new software partners or automotive trends. As a global technology leader, DESIGNA shapes the new intermobility – a fast growing field that is opening up new business areas and offers companies the possibility of a new strategic direction.


Future-Proof Solutions


Conventional parking garages require a dedicated server to manage and control their operations. With DESIGNA’s leading Private Cloud technology it is possible to network every facility together via a central, specially protected server. For large operators who are interested in networking several garages, server management makes it possible to grow more quickly than their competitors. Due to the centralization of the server, only the necessary terminals need to be installed on site for a new installation, then the software is activated from the central server. The system architecture is completely scalable to grow and evolve into the future.


Smartphone and web content is fully integrated via BackOffice modules. Different modules can be deployed over different servers in a hosted environment. Depending on your business requirements, modules can be flexibly combined – and grow as your business grows.


DESIGNA’s scalable system architecture provides parking operators access to the most state-of-the-art software, since all updates are automatically carried out for all connected systems. This saves time and money. Moreover, the centralization makes it possible to monitor every connected facility worldwide at the same time. The data from the garages is collected in a central location and supplied to the user as operating information. The parking operator determines the number of control stations and their setup as fixed workstations or mobile terminals.


Above all, centralizing the facility means added security for the operator. It means that manipulation of the system will no longer be possible, and all data is secured via a central backup system, meaning that the facilities’ smooth operation is guaranteed at all times.


Parking with our phones


DESIGNA’s solutions connect parkers to your facilities through a dynamic Smartphone App and online. Your parking information, pictures, services, hours, rates and more, are instantly available to your customers. Smartphone and Internet users get dynamic information like the occupancy-levels of all your facilities, and they can link to eCommerce modules like PreBooking, Mobile Ticket Payment or Customer Portal. All your content details are configured once and appear simultaneously in your App and on your Web. If you already have a Smartphone App up and running, your content can be integrated.


DESIGNA’s App features: navigation, pre-booking, contract parking, ticketless mobile payment, real-time hosted data, occupancy information, Car Finder, plus eCommerce applications like push messaging, Smartphone advertising and other marketing promotions for B2C and B2B. Additionally, customizable micro-sites can be created for seamless integration with partner websites or portals.


Our parking management systems allow both ticketless and ticketed payment on both entry and exit, by a number of payment methods including EMV credit card and mobile apps. Pre-booking and web validation systems enable ticketless parking with online reservations and prepaid mobile codes. Multiple payment options including mobile pay options such as Apple Pay and Samsung Wallet, are also available.


Web Validation


 DESIGNA’s Web Validation application works for short-term parker tickets with magnetic stripe or barcode technology. Validations are accessed online and allocated validations are saved in the system server. Multiple validation levels can be allocated and credited during the payment process or at the exit, when the validations are retrieved from the system server and deducted from the incurred parking fee.
