IPS FULLY INTEGRATED PARKING ECOSYSTEM
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.
