City parking systems must be able to accommodate a wide variety of rate structures and validations and be user-friendly to the general parking public. Ensuring that the parking kiosks comply with applicable disabilities laws is a must.
Further, city & government parking operations require controls to ensure that areas with paid parking are requiring and receiving payment. Utilizing the management reports to properly control cash, credit and debit receipts will help to ensure compliance with procedures. Audit reports, transaction reports, reconciliation of vehicles entering and exiting the lot with revenue collection reports, and controls maximize revenue and minimize employee misconduct.
Accountability for validation and coupons used by the city parking system allow restricting discounts to specific periods and dates. Cash collection in locked vaults with separate keys for removing the vault and opening the vault allow for segregation of cash handling duties. Printed cash collection audit reports may be reconciled against the cash collected and deposited.
