Parking management for airports, universities and shopping centers

SKIDATA has gained many well-known clients with its clever parking solutions. For instance, SKIDATA was selected to provide parking management at the world's third largest airport, Dallas Fort Worth. With the know-how collected from other major projects, SKIDATA was able to complete the two parking areas, one year before the scheduled date. The parking areas are now part of the airport's revenue stream.
In addition to Dallas Fort Worth, other airports benefiting from SKIDATA expertise include John Wayne Airport near Los Angeles and Canada's Montreal Airport. At Lester P. Pearson Airport in Toronto, SKIDATA has equipped parking garage no. 6 as part of a first phase. Plans call for installing SKIDATA systems at further facilities.

Since April 2011, SKIDATA has provided technology to make parking easy, convenient and secure for some 15,000 students and employees of Scarborough University. SKIDATA is also used in shopping centers in the Americas. For example, SKIDATA manages parking for the Chilean shopping center operators Cencosud and Mall Plaza, including the Hotel Ritz in Santiago de Chile, as well as for the city of Ottawa in Canada.
