UTS are always busy whether it’s a new installation, maintenance contract, equipment upgrade or piloting new technology with existing or new Customers you can read about it here.

Following a tender competition UTS have just completed the installation of 42 Flowbird STRADA Evo Meters in Carlow Town.

In line with the rising popularity of cashless the new Meters accept Coin and contactless payments.

The meters are networked to the UTS SmartFolio® Meter Management System enabling Council Staff to receive information in real time. As soon as a coin collection takes place the information is sent to the SmartFolio® MMS so The Council have the collection data immediately.

UTS manage the e-Payment processing on behalf of The Council

This is an exciting opportunity for UTS to showcase their newest generation of meter – the STRADA Evo III which includes the latest in terms of mechanical security and technical reliability.

The project included the removal and disposal of the old meters. The civil works, signage and bollards was carried out by our sub-contractor – AGK Displays Ltd. based in Carlow. The entire project was completed in 2 weeks just in time for the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions.

We've been very busy lately with two big jobs completed for Galway and Sligo 

City of The Tribes Welcomes UTS & Flowbird

Galway City had been operating Pay & Display Parking since 2003 and their meters had reached the end of their useful lives. There was a degree of urgency to replace 20 meters in 2017 as the number of operational meters in the City had reduced to a critical level. A tender was awarded to UTS for the Parkeon STRADA “Rapide” Evo II meters. These were supplied without armouring to meet a tender price point. The Contract required UTS to act as Project Managers – providing the logistics such as civil works and disposal of the old meters.

In 2018 Parkeon and Cale, the two World market leaders in the field of parking and public transport ticketing solutions, merged to become Flowbird. 

In Ireland where Cale and Parkeon products were previously marketed through two Distributors, both will now be offered through UTS Technologies. This will apply to parts, repairs and back-office connected services – CWO for Cale meters and SmartFolio for Parkeon meters. UTS Technologies will become the Exclusive Distributor from July 2022.

As from today UTS can already offer Cale’s meter networking (CWO) to existing Cale Customers and leveraging from our large volume of connected meters can offer competitive rates including SIM cards for CWO back-office.

With the support of Flowbird UTS are now able to carry out repairs on Cale equipment that is not currently covered by any legacy service Agreement and can provide comprehensive field technical support, replacement parts and repairs.

For any ageing Cale or Parkeon meters we can now offer competitive meter replacements for upgraded meters with coin and contactless payment through a range of options including rental and leasing.

UTS and Flowbird have worked together for the past 28 years building a sizeable Customer base in Ireland and we see this as an opportunity to enhance our service to existing and new Customers alike.

The merger will bring about the best of Parkeon’s and Cale’s engineering to herald a new generation of meters, back-office management information systems and payment channels offering our Customers a complete parking portfolio suited to the needs of public mobility for many years to come.


The need to have accurate and up to the minute data is what MyParkfolio is all about.  Most of the UTS parking meters are already networked via the UTS / Parkeon web-enabled Parkfolio service.
