Stop the spread of Covid-19
WHO pushes for contactless payments instead of cash to slow Covid-19.WHO experts say the Covid-19 could latch onto currency in the same way that it is able to live on hard surfaces like doorknobs, handrails and handles. Traditional parking that relies heavily on the usage of cash may be the determining factor in the near future of motorist choosing where to park. The same way people are choosing services that offers contactless payments.
Creating a stress free way for customers to pay their parking is key in todays world. Customers can pay from the comfort of their vehicle, safely and securely without battling with the conventional ways of cash payments.

When you’re in a hurry, issues as such can be extremely frustrating. Cashless car park payments can bring an end to these difficult times.
