| Everybody loves free parking. But when parking spaces are scarce, free parking is inefficient.
Q-Park PaSS (Parking as a Smart Service) is the latest value-adding service from Q-Park's innovators. In 2016 Q-Park pioneered cashless and ticketless parking that enables customers to access and exit a parking facility using their bank card or credit card. This next Q-Park innovation has taken parking convenience a step further – from cashless to ticketless to cardless parking - no bank or credit card required.
Cardless parking is more than ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) because it includes payment, it is ANPR+PAY. A true seamless customer journey including payment – future-proof from start to finish.
Q-Park PaSS is an experience delivery innovation! Q-Park PaSS is based on well-known innovation principles with an emphasis on getting the job done, and simplicity.
Q-Park PaSS is an evolutionary innovation combining ANPR technology with digital payment solutions and Q-Park's proprietary Back Office Calculation (BOC) module. Now, we can integrate the (PMS) at access and exit points with Q-Park’s BOC to create a seamless, fair and transparent parking experience.

Integrated systems enable number plate validation and payment processing. Privacy issues are circumvented as no detailed customer information is required.
It is a Smart Service for businesses who wish to offer pre-booked and pre-paid parking services for their customers. PaSS is a very attractive innovation for event organisers, hotels and cinemas, airline and cruise ship operators, to name a few.
