An integrated approach to parking

As an independent information and organisational consultancy we advise cities on enhancing their accessibility and delivering maximum parking convenience for visitors and citizens. Our solutions yield lower operational costs and optimise parking revenues for local authorities.

How it works

Integrated public-private service

Our solutions provide municipal authorities with a framework for realising their parking policies and enforcing them effectively. The systems we use are open to private providers who can offer their parking, payment and navigation services by using the central parking data base. This facilitates the best possible public-private service to the citizen and customer.

Licence plate registration is key

Our solutions provide municipal authorities with a framework for realising their parking policies and enforcing them effectively. The systems we use are open to private providers who can offer their parking, payment and navigation services by using the central parking data base. This facilitates the best possible public-private service to the citizen and customer.

Room for innovation of services

Providers of parking, payment and navigation services can also use the real-time information to help customers find a convenient parking space through their car navigation system, register that they have parked by mobile phone and pay by monthly invoice. These services deliver both efficient and convenient registration and payment. GPS navigation saves the customer time and reduces traffic flows by preventing unnecessary movements in search of parking space.

Both on and off-street

Car parks are also being connected to the on-street ticketless parking management system. The car park gate or barrier will open automatically when the licence plate is recognised, both on entering and leaving the garage. Payment will then be settled automatically via the customer’s provider.

The way forward in Europe

The innovative parking management model developed by DENION and Dutch local authorities is leading the way in Europe. What has become known as the Amsterdam model is attracting interest from major cities in several EU member states and DENION is sharing its knowledge and experience in developing comparable models elsewhere.

"DENION organises new combinations and invents creative solutions that deliver practical results"

DENION has built up a strong track record

We have been closely involved in the development of the innovative Amsterdam model and helped to build an integrated national parking database in the Netherlands, which is presently used by over 30 Dutch municipalities. We have been asked by city authorities throughout Europe to share our expertise.

Trackrecord

2014

DENION advises on the future parking service concept for the city of The Hague. It is a dynamic concept, with rules that are less strict and more self-management on the basis of mutual agreement. By allowing citizens and businesses to share and to swap parking rights within a framework set out by the municipal authority, more parking space can be made available at the right time at the right location.

2013

DENION is involved in the introduction of ticketless parking in public car parks in Amsterdam, using licence plate recognition for entry and exit.

DENION presents the intelligent parking solutions which form the ‘Amsterdam model’ at several congresses and seminars on parking and to the councils of several major cities in Europe.

2012

DENION develops a system for the electronic registration of parking cards for disabled persons. This involves digital surveillance and prevents the previously endemic fraud with and theft of these valuable cards.

2010

DENION is asked by the SHPV, an alliance of Dutch local authorities, to develop the National Parking Register. This parking data base is used to provide information to both municipalities and private sector providers throughout the country.

2004

Over the years we have advised and worked together with many of the larger Dutch cities to devise mobility and parking management solutions, from the digital management of parking space and enforcement to the introduction of parking rights and payment by mobile phone.

2003

DENION is involved in an overhaul of the way on-street parking is organised in Amsterdam, working on different projects to restructure the organisation and build a complete new electronic system of parking management and enforcement.

2001

DENION is established as a consultancy for the public and semi-public sectors. We focus on the functional design of information and the organisation of information dissemination. The projects and systems DENION advises on create new interfaces between institutions and citizens. We do this by developing innovative combinations, often involving new technologies.
