City of Chattanooga, Tenn. Deploys Multi-Space Parking Meters From Digital Payment Technologies

Modern Multi-Space Parking Pay Stations Help City to Streamline Parking Enforcement

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Digital Payment Technologies (http://www.digitalpaytech.com) (DPT) and Creative Parking Concepts announced the deployment of 40 LUKE II parking pay stations in the city of Chattanooga, Tenn. Installed by Creative Parking Concepts, and managed by the newly formed Chattanooga Parking Authority, a division of the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA), the new solar-powered multi-space pay stations replace 286 single-head parking meters. The new pay stations will be deployed by the end of January 2013.

CARTA has been using pay stations from DPT since 2007, and the 40 new solar-powered meters bring the total to 68 in the city. The Chattanooga Parking Authority made the decision to expand the city's multi-space pay stations to both the revitalized riverfront district and the City Center. Consumers parking in these areas will benefit from the convenient option to pay with coins credit cards. Additionally customers will now have the added convenience of paying by phone on all of the pay stations. From the management and parking enforcement perspective, the pay stations will also make enforcement more efficient.

"These are high turnover areas and multi-space pay stations are the perfect fit," said Brent Matthews, director of parking at CARTA. "We appreciate the pay stations' ease-of-use, quick troubleshooting and overall reliability. We've had great success with DPT pay stations, and the ability to pay with a credit card or by phone is a great convenience for the consumer. We are also working to offer smart cards later this year. The pay stations give us the flexibility to employ new parking technology and improve customer service."

Added David Hoyt, regional sales manager at Digital Payment Technologies, "We are pleased that CARTA has continued to invest in our pay stations. The reliability, ability to streamline enforcement and multiple payment options make our pay stations the best choice for today's parking needs. Also, the pay stations' modular construction and backend software, allow the pay stations to be easily upgraded over time as parking needs evolve. This makes DPT a great investment for today, and the future."

The new parking pay stations in Chattanooga will accept payment via credit cards, coins and by phone. Parking rates remain at $0.75 per hour.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, showed how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful f...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
With online viewership and sales growing rapidly, enterprises are interested in understanding how they analyze performance to positively impact business metrics. Deeper insight into the user experience is needed to understand why conversions are dropping and/or bounce rates are increasing or, preferably, to understand what has been helping these metrics improve. The digital performance management industry has evolved as application performance management companies have broadened their scope beyo...
Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negat...

Your business relies on your applications and your employees to stay in business. Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance? You and all technical teams across the organization – application, network, operations, among others, as well as, those outside the organization, like ISPs and third-party providers – are called in to solve the problem.
Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS - software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
As applications are promoted from the development environment to the CI or the QA environment and then into the production environment, it is very common for the configuration settings to be changed as the code is promoted. For example, the settings for the database connection pools are typically lower in development environment than the QA/Load Testing environment. The primary reason for the existence of the configuration setting differences is to enhance application performance. However, occas...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
