SKIDATA, Inc. Announces New Contract for City of Scranton, PA

SKIDATA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of SKIDATA AG is pleased to announce their newest contract for a citywide installation in Scranton, Pennsylvania.


The city of Scranton, Pennsylvania is experiencing a surge in growth and redevelopment and SKIDATA is proud to be selected for their multiple facility installation. This contract is more than just a project as SKIDATA will expand into the area by staffing a full-time service engineer to install and support this citywide installation.

When the city and ABM Parking Services decided to improve on their outdated and obsolete 3M Federal APD system, they could have gone with SKIDATA’s asset refreshment program specifically designed for these aging sites, but instead they envisioned a technologically advanced parking system that would only be possible with a full suite of SKIDATA products.

The project consists of six parking facilities all managed by ABM Parking Services. There will be 33 lanes of equipment and 11 POF’s. The city will benefit from a great cross section of SKIDATA products and services including Power.Gate and Lite.Gate entry and exit columns, Easy.Cash and Credit.Cash Pay on Foot devices as well as the advanced web-based products sweb.Validate, sweb.Contract, and sweb.Reports.

James Meany, SKIDATA’s Senior Sales Professional in the northeast, described his excitement and dedication to this project, “It is my pleasure to work with Dana Olszowy and Vito Del Vescovo of ABM Parking Services, on this exciting project. Many key stakeholder requirements were addressed with the unique hardware and software solutions that SKIDATA has to offer, including our sweb services and Power / Lite.gate products.”

SKIDATA is well represented throughout the northeast with other municipal, hospital, and offairport garages in several other cities. This will be the first SKIDATA installation in “Pennsylvania’s Progressive City.” Everyone in the company is looking forward to the incredible opportunity to be a part of the city’s reinvention.
