ment and upgrade its current software for 15 parking facilities in Lincoln, NE. Company readers, AVI technology, barrier gates and the iParcProfessional Suite are expected to be installed by this winter. The new software will provide a command center approach by centrally connecting the facilities – five owned and operated by the state, and 10 by the city, a long-term Amano McGann customer – thus reducing costs and enhancing cus- tomer satisfaction. The city facilities have migrated systems over the years from McGann Signature Software to the most recent iParcProfessional Suite. Central Parking System has enhanced its new proprietary

parking app to allow customers in its New York market to down- load company coupons directly to their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch device. The free app, available at the Apple App Store or at the company’s website (, includes information on parking for New York, as well as more than 50 U.S. cities. This enhancement will let customers directly down- load the mobile coupons and then redeem them at participating Central locations in the New York area simply by showing the parking attendant their device.

Finfrock has been using StructureWorks 3D modeling software, for the past several years, in designing the parking structures, mixed-use buildings and multi-unit residential buildings it constructs.

of point-of-sale supplies to include parking citation tickets and moving violation ticket paper rolls. The paper is available in roll and fan-folded formats to meet a variety of application needs. Paper grades include standard, heavy-duty, long-life, weather- resistant and waterproof. The use of handheld computers capable of printing e-citation tickets on the spot has virtually eliminated traditional citation books. Printed citations are easier to read than hand-written documents, faster to issue and more likely to be paid, the company also says. Hartford-based LAZ Parking notes that its LAZFly’s Pre-

mier Valet lot, at 24 Ella Grasso Turnpike at Bradley Internation- al Airport in Windsor Locks, CT, is undergoing significant reno- vations designed to transform the park-and-fly into the region’s best-in-class airport parking experience and provide Premier Valet customers with exceptional quality service.

The Green Parking Council (GPC) has recognized 25 U.S.

parking facilities whose operators committed to environmentally responsible technologies and practices in 2011. These “Demon- strator Sites,” the GPC says, are “the leading edge of an industry- wide campaign establishing open-source sustainability standards and challenging the parking industry to meet these standards.” GPC Executive Director Paul Wessel explained that the sites “begin the transformation of traditional parking facilities into cer- tified ‘green’ garages through the adoption of energy efficient lighting systems, electric vehicle charging stations, alternative fuel vehicle fleets, recycling programs, car-sharing programs and other progressive practices.” For more information on the sites, go to Nedap AVI was praised at the Gulf Traffic 2011 exhibition
