Varenna, a beautiful village on the eastern branch of Lake Como famous for its picturesque alleyways and breathtaking views, is a popular destination for Italian and international tourists. The lake and the small village can also be admired from the rooftop of the Varenna car park, the parking area a stone's throw from the center and perfectly integrated into the surrounding area.
For the Park Varenna Project, the challenges faced successfully by the Designa Team were many.
1. The Context
The CONNECT series is characterized by its ambitious design and aesthetic value as well as its undoubted technological value and fits perfectly into the context.
2. High Traffic Volumes
The use of new technological solutions and the remarkable software performance of the Designa system play an important role in parking processes under all conditions and circumstances, the software functions and operational applications simplify and improve management during peak visitor times as well as during periods of constant flow of subscribers, residents and occasional visitors.
3. International Customers
The parking experience for visitors is optimal all around:
At the entrance to the multi-storey car park, communication is made highly intuitive and fast thanks to the full touch column display with integrated ticket request functions, language change of instructions and intercom calls. The same ease of use is repeated at the automatic cash machines. And finally, the quick and effective QR code scanner reading of short-term tickets and season tickets at the exit is a success factor.
Crucial for Parking Varenna, was the rapid installation of all the equipment and the efficient start-up of the CONNECT system; these elements combined have enabled the operator to avoid system stoppages and revenue losses.
"I am very satisfied", says Francesco Frigerio of the car park management company, "I immediately appreciated the excellent quality of the Designa products, but above all the professionalism and helpfulness of the Designa Italia team, which was able to activate the system in a short time, allowing continuity of the services offered, without any interruptions whatsoever, especially in the integrated management of the agreements with the many hotels that use our car park for their customers."
