Revolutionary Parking Facility Management System

A new generation of parking management systems, that will make hunting, waiting, and fighting for parking spaces obsolete, even during peak parking periods, and that is being developed by iVALET Systems Inc. (, has reached another milestone in its creation. With the assistance of KLN KLEIN Product Development Inc. ( the prototype of a special Touch-Screen/Ticket-Printing Console was just completed.
kln.gifThe console, an electronic equivalent of a well informed and helpful parking attendant, is equipped with full-colour LCD touch-screen, printer, camera, speaker, and microphone. It offers parking patrons the choice of parking spots, based on vicinity to the desired destination and price, and then issues a ticket with the parking space assignment and the directions to easily locate that spot. The unit is robustly built, yet light-weight (aluminum construction), with a hinged access door that allows easy installation and maintenance of all the internal components while keeping them secure through a double-lock mechanism. All components mount very quickly, including a backlit sign at the front top of the console.

KLN’s turn-around time for this project, which included the design engineering and the manufacturing of the prototype enclosure, was just five weeks. “This amazingly short turn-around time was only possible through our expertise with industrial enclosures and human-machine-interfaces, particularly our prior experience with parking meters and vending machines, and the unique and tight integration of our own, in-house multi-disciplinary engineering and manufacturing resources,” says Dominic Wong, Chief Mechanical Design Engineer of KLN. Alex Garden, CEO of iVALET adds, “Working with KLN has been very beneficial. They immediately understood our needs and delivered exactly what we wanted, in a very short period of time.”

iVALET Systems delivers a superior experience to parking patrons and helps parking operators increase their revenues significantly by enabling them to charge premium rates for preferred parking spots. As Peter Klein, President of KLN points out, “The parking industry will see a quantum leap in efficiency for parking patrons and in revenue potential for parkade operators with this revolutionary, new parking management system.” He adds, “We are very pleased to be part of this exciting development.”
