Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust has recently updated and improved Tewkesbury Community Hospital’s car park by using Nortech’s FeeMaster system. The Feemaster range was installed by entry control system specialist ASGuk, who had been appointed to the project by the NHS Trust to design and install a parking control system to prevent visitors from misusing the site’s car park.
ASGuk proposed a time and budget-friendly solution that fitted the client’s needs now and into the future, combining both automatic barriers and parking ticket control. The company selected Nortech’s FeeMaster parking system as part of the design, which includes the FeeMaster Smart Entry Station, the FeeMaster Smart Exit Station and a number of FeeMaster Smart Consoles for inside the building.
The consoles allow members of staff to control any misuse of the car park and ensure that there are enough parking spaces for visitors and patients alike at any given time.
Nortech’s FeeMaster Smart parking management system is a flexible, simple and cost-effective way of managing car parking access and controlling validity periods using Mifare smart cards. This avoids the need for expensive cabling between components and minimises on-site disruption. The Smart Entry Station is designed to be used to record the date and time that a vehicle enters a car park.
