In these case we needed to do an application that will allow a person to manage parking passes – control payments for parking or subscriptions, guest passes, duration of parking sessions.

Who applied with a project? 😊

The owner of a startup who had an idea, investors and even potential buyers, was looking for developers with similar experience. Our portfolio included relevant cases.

What did we need to do?
We must admit, initially the solution should have been quite simple: just entries and payments. After our research and analysis, the client realized that the first solution needed to be expanded. As a result, the requirements changed and it turned out, that a solution could do everything.

First solution
editing descriptions and tariffs, creating parking passes
video footage from cameras 24/7 online in their own CRM
viewing parking sessions, payments, statistics
Final solution
Complex pricing that takes into account the presence (and expiration during parking) of a subscription/whitelist and the prohibition of departure before payment
Prepayments in the application/on the website/through the parking kiosk
Alternative ways to identify the auto-user (scanning the QR from the application/on the web)
Purchases and renewals of subscriptions
Video recordings from the cameras in the admin panel

How much time did it take to do?
We tried different hardware and software vendors, configured integration with them, changed to others, because there were failures in operations. As a result, most of the logic was implemented on our side, as we wanted to be completely confident in the quality.

Features

Control logic

Control logic

We had integration with a ready-made partner solution. At the same time, we did not just take recognized numbers, but built a complex access control logic taking into account the logic of the object (closed/public), business model (for example, hourly payment/subscription only/both options). Additionally, cases of failure of system elements were processed.

Parking sessions and payments

Parking sessions and payments

Now the system can understand peak load hours, the duration of being in the parking lot. This information is useful for pricing and marketing purposes. For example, to understand who a typical shopping center customer is.

Emergency situations

Emergency situations

The application itself is quite complex from the point of view of the Backend. Cases have been worked out here when something went wrong (the Internet fell off, the number was recognized incorrectly). Special attention was paid to testing of operability and fault tolerance, monitoring of exchange queues.

Why is it cool?✌
