In various cities, citizens are paying the parking fees with regular credit cards and with personalized citizen cards. Closed loop (e.g. citizen card) and open loop (e.g. credit/debit card) cashless services are using same infrastructure and are fully integrated into eFinance Service Suite for transaction overview and transaction management.
Each citizen card has a personal profile which describes the parking machines where a citizen gets a certain discount at a certain time. Optional the citizen card can be pre-loaded with a certain amount of free parking time. A web based application, which is also part of eFinance platform, provides the personalization and configuration of each citizen card.
