PSX Attends Amano McGann Parking Dealers’ Meeting in Japan
Meeting is a part of PSX’s continual goal to offer our customers the best technology, customer service, practices, and products.
As part of PSX’s ongoing mission to continually offer our customers best-in-class service, technology, and practices, PSX executives are attending the Amano McGann Parking Dealer’s Association conference in Japan. The meeting offers PSX the opportunity to connect with Amano McGann principals and engineers. In addition to conversations on the future of parking technology development, PSX will tour Amano’s headquarters and factory.
The Amano McGann Parking Dealers Association (AMPDA) is a network of organizations headquartered in the United States who both sell and service Amano McGann Parking equipment to American locations. AMPDA members service all fifty states and Canada.
Amano was founded in 1931 and acquired Cincinnati Time (founded in 1896) in 1991. The time companies have been at the forefront of developing systems for measuring and collecting time data for over a century. These systems are put to use in Amano’s parking meter technology throughout the world. Their technological expertise drives the new OPUS, a best-in-breed parking management system that aggregates data across multiple locations and integrates smartphone technology.
Amano’s OPUS system is noted for its ease of use and is the choice in many vital parking garage locations. For example, PSX’s installation of the OPUS system in a juror parking garage in Pennsylvania recently won a Parking Technology award from the Pennsylvania Parking Association.
Notably, the OPUS system allow parking to be purchased or reserved in advance, and parking tickets to be emailed to customers for them to conveniently print or scan from their smartphone. The system prevents parking snarls, allows for far greater efficiency and management of lots, and is greatly appreciated by customers who are now accustomed to online reservation systems.
