IPS FULLY INTEGRATED PARKING ECOSYSTEM

OUR STORY

The Path to Smart Parking Leadership

In 2005, IPS introduced the Smart Parking Meter, launching a new era of parking management.

We later introduced other Smart Parking solutions, evolving into a single-source provider. Pay stations, upgrade kits, enforcement and permitting solutions, vehicle detection sensors, mobile payment and other applications — all powered by the same collective intelligence of the IPS organically developed Data Management System. Today, we are proud to offer the industry’s ONLY true, Fully Integrated Parking Management Suite.

IPS innovations have transformed Smart Parking operations from a tedious, time-consuming chore into a streamlined, proactive revenue-generating process powered by a single source with 360-degree management capabilities. In the modern era, where parking has become curb management, the IPS Data Management System has led the way to data-enhanced decision-making for sustainable cities.

FRONTLINE EXPERIENCE, FAMILY-STYLE SUPPORT

In addition to world-class engineers, our executive management team includes city and institutional parking planners with long experience on the front lines of policy making and public service. They’ve been where you are and understand the challenges first-hand.

We are proud to be a family-owned business headquartered in the USA, with worldwide offices. By manufacturing in the US, we can provide outstanding quality, reduce environmental impact, and meet quick delivery turnaround requirements. We remain the only independently owned vendor in an increasingly consolidating industry, where parking is merely another corporate division.

At IPS, parking is our only priority, and our customers are treated like family.
