DESIGNA: How customers keep control of change

The new SLIMPARK Pay PRO pay station

The DESIGNA SLIMPARK Pay PRO pay station

With the Pay PRO, DESIGNA is bringing an automatic pay station to the market for all of the payment procedures that occur in the car park. The special feature is that change can now not only be given in coins, but also in notes.

A typical situation: you finished your last few errands in town or at the shopping centre, hurry to the car park, pay for your ticket and... oh, the ticket... up it pops again, that issue of having the right change. So what a relief to find an automatic pay station that not only accepts banknotes, but also, instead of giving you your change with a load of coins, can also give you back notes.

Like the ABACUS system by DESIGNA before it, the new SLIMPARK Pay PRO pay station is now perfectly up to the task. With its inbuilt banknote recycler, it has been especially developed for including banknotes in change. Meaning that depending on the amount to be paid out, change can be given not only in coins, but also in banknotes. An added benefit that pays off not only in reduced work - coin cassette holders don't need to be filled up anywhere near as often - but also through more satisfied car park customers.

As the big brother to the SLIM Pay, the Pay PRO is particularly adapted to the needs of customers in Central Asia, Central and South America and the United Arab Emirates. This is because in these areas cash payments are made significantly more often in the form of banknotes, which are ultimately also found again more often in change.

As an additional option, the Pay PRO has a graphic LC display for depicting different lettering as well as – in cases where payment is aborted – a hardware interim cash holder for returning banknotes that have been inserted into the machine. More information on the Pay PRO is available on


In 1951 DESIGNA became Germany's first producer and supplier of parking meters. DESIGNA's history of innovation continued. At the end of the seventies, the Kiel-based enterprise was able to to introduce its first fully automatic parking system. The company's programme has now been further developed to encompass fully comprehensive solutions, from the design and planning phase right through to the installation and service of fully automatic parking systems. The experience DESIGNA has acquired over the last 50 years continues to benefit customers at every stage of the project.
