Phoenix, Arizona – The City of Phoenix has contracted ParkPro, in collaboration with Amano McGann, to replace the existing parking access and revenue control system (PARCS) at the Phoenix Convention Center. Installation is set to begin in September.

The Phoenix Convention Center has over 4,300 covered parking spaces located in seven garages. “Due to the high-volume nature of the facility, the convention center required a system that will increase throughput, provide comprehensive reporting options, and offer patrons flexible and secure payment choices,” said ParkPro Sales Manager Blaine Shelton. With that in mind, the City of Phoenix selected Amano McGann’s OPUSeries® hardware coupled with iParcProfessional® Parking Management Software for their new PARCS.

ParkPro will be installing EMV-capable exit terminals, pay-on-foot stations and point-of-sale terminals to help the Phoenix Convention Center stay up-to-date with the latest PCI compliance regulations. Wade Bettisworth, Amano McGann’s Western Region vice president, elaborated, “Amano McGann’s solution uses EMV-capable terminals that accomplish end-to-end, EMVCo.-compliant processing using a cloud-based, third-party gateway.” Using Amano McGann’s integrated FlexScan technology, paired with eParcSuite web-based solutions, the convention center will also be able to provide patrons with printed or smartphone scannable short-term passes and validations.
