FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 August 26, 2019 

Barnacle Parking Enforcement has integrated their Enterprise Management System with the IPS Group Enforcement Management Solution. The new integration will support a rapidly expanding number of mutual clients across the globe. With the integration complete, Barnacle can automatically query license plates for delinquent citations and then mark them paid. The integration creates a seamless functionality, reducing workload for the parking enforcement officer and lessening administrative requirements for management. 

Here’s how it works: The Barnacle Immobilization Solution suctions onto a vehicle’s windshield and blocks the driver’s vision, rendering the vehicle immobilized. Each de-vice is GPS-equipped, sends real-time alerts, and allows for the violator to easily re-move the device by paying online or over the phone. Barnacle provides payment processing and a 24/7 call center accessible to violators. The Barnacle Enterprise Management System (BEMS) is a comprehensive customer portal for management of the technology. BEMS provides GPS tracking, activity logs, deployment records, data reporting, inventory control, and access to the iOS/Android Enforcer native application. 

With the IPS Group integration in effect, parking enforcement officers can type the li-cense plate number into the deployment screen on the BEMS system or Enforcer App. By querying The IPS Group Enforcement Management Solution, BEMS identifies all
delinquent citations and creates a sum total to ensure the violator can pay as required. Once paid, BEMS communicates back to IPS Group to mark all respective citations as paid, thereby reducing the administrative workload on staff. 

About the IPS Enforcement Management Solution: The platform provides real-time ac-cess to handle the entire citation lifecycle, including citation issuance, citation processing and delinquent collections. The ecosystem seamlessly integrates with existing parking technology, such as Single- and Multi-Space Smart Parking meters, Vehicle Detection Sensors, License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, and pay-by-phone applications.

The platform includes a handheld citation writer and an Enforcement Management System that serves as a back office, web-based application that receives citation information from the enforcement device in real-time, tracking and monitoring all stages of the citation process. It also includes an online Public Portal that provides citizens convenient access to their citation information with the ability to pay, resolve or contest it online.
