2009 is the year of "Application Service Providing" for Designa

Fundamentally, Application Service Providing, or ASP for short, is nothing new. Many companies are already taking advantage of the opportunity provided by ASP services to outsource entire areas of their administration and procedures in order to concentrate more fully on their core skills.
The use of the most up-to-date technologies and databases, and many years of experience in operating networked system structures are now providing DESIGNA with the chance to offer car park operators the ASP model as a service.

Be it individual hotel garages or major worldwide networked projects, Application Service Providing is suitable for any kind of car park. The reasons for using ASP are clear: in comparison with conventional server structures, in which each parking facility is controlled by a separate server, with ASP it is possible to network every facility together via a central server. Through this efficient and reliable data centre, car park operators have access to the most up-to-date software applications, which are made available and retrieved over the Internet. This service offer helps car park operators to achieve greater cost efficiencies and time savings. The costs for personnel, updates and maintenance, as well as downtime in the event of server malfunctions, are reduced or entirely done away with.

What remains is the question of security. On this subject, Stefan Ille, Development Manager at DESIGNA, says, Above all, centralising the facility means security for the operator. Manipulation of the system will no longer be possible, since the companys own personnel on site are unable to intervene in the servers technical functions. Furthermore, all data is secured via a central backup system, so that the facilities smooth operation is guaranteed at all times.

The first operator to utilize Application Service Providing for its car parks in Osnabrück and Hannover, is OPG Parking GmbH, who adopted the system in September 2008 with great success.
