“My employees steal the at cash register”
“Cars disappear from the daily billing”
This is the reality that small car parks’s owners have, which currently suffer a serious problem in their billing: money disappears.
Its typology is always the same, car parks with a reduced number of spaces and a medium / medium-low vehicles’s accesses with manual operation. It is the employee himself who controls all the tickets that are produced at each access of a vehicle.
The low budget that these types of car parks usually have don’t allow them to buy a traditional parking control. And combined with their manual operation, makes the car park a machine to lose money.
The problem: Theft and cash point fraud
The manual operation is the cause of all this billing problematic, being the incomes lower than they really should be.
By controlling the vehicles manual, without any kind of automatic registration, is the car park employee who has under his control all the transactions that has been made during the day. To gain extra money, some employees don’t register the access of some vehicles, keeping in their pocket the income, without going to the cash register. This is a problem that affects especially in the Latin American countries, because the car parks are mostly of this type.
To this problem with the employees is added the disappearance of some cars at the daily billing, that leave the car park without paying. It’s a rarely fraud, but it is also there.
On the other hand, the parking systems available on the market aren’t thought for small car parks. The most of these technological solutions offer very powerful systems focused on the management and the control of large car parks, they aren’t fitted for small car parks.
The owners of these car parks can do nothing. They don’t have enough money to install a powerful car park system, and at the same time they don’t have this money because the losses they have. A catch-22 situation.
