On 14th April, after years of constant equipment failure with the previous parking system on site, Belfast City Hospital were able to regain control of their multiple public and staff car parks.
Having searched the market through public tender for a robust and highly adaptable parking system, the hospital, part of the Belfast Health Trust, appointed Advanced Parking Solutions as their future parking system partners.
The Skidata system allows real-time control of a total of 13 entry lanes, 14 exit lanes and 5 Automatic pay stations via the Trust IT network, allowing staff to communicate easily with drivers using an IP video intercom system and the Skidata control centre software. The Trust also saved on further costs by reusing existing staff proximity cards through the Skidata system, ruling out any need to issue new cards to thousands of staff users.
More importantly, apart from improving traffic management, Belfast City Hospital can now generate full revenue again from the parking system and reinvest in better patient care and facilities.
