UTS provide a comprehensive maintenance service to Bray Town Council (now part of Wicklow County Council). The contract includes attending to faults, routine quarterly maintenance and ticket stocking.

The Contract has been in place since 2003.

In 2014 the service has recently been extended to include routine cash collection and banking from the meters. We are working with GSLS to provide this element of the contract and collection schedules are managed by UTS

 

Of the 75 machines in Bray there are approximately. Originally Parkeon STELIO machines were installed, but as the parking control zones increased newer STRADA meters were added and there are now approximately 30 STRADA Evo i and ii models in the Town.

 

All the machines communicate in real time to our Parkfolio® back office Management Information System so we are able to accurately monitor coin levels for collections, ticket levels and other events. Our response time to faults is typically same working day maximum.

 

As a result of recent attacks on meters we have carried out security upgrades on a number of busy and remote meters throughout the Town. Fortunately this has prevented further attacks.

 

The meters are routinely maintained with 4 PM visits per year. The Client has on occasion expressed the concern that the older machines should be replaced, but with the level of care they have been getting under the maintenance we have assured them that with continued proper service, the meters will continue to function for some years more.

 

UTS are currently working with Arklow Area Office of Wicklow Co. Council and as a result of defective machines have entered a short-term machine rental pilot and are currently renting 7 STRADA Evo ii machines for the busiest car parks and street locations in the Town. The rental agreement takes care of all maintenance, ticket loading and even vandalism. If the pilot is successful the Council may tender for a larger number of meters / maintenance under a rental arrangement.
