METRIC Group Ltd
METRIC Group Ltd are a leading UK manufacturer and supplier of parking equipment. We work direct with many NHS trusts and private healthcare providers to supply smart, secure, scalable parking systems that work for hospitals and health clinics.
METRIC offer Pay & Display, Pay-on-Foot and ANPR managed parking systems allowing us to meet your needs whatever the size or requirements of your healthcare facility.
We will work with you to ensure the parking system you choose works for your patients, their visitors, as well as your staff and suppliers.
Our parking terminals accept all payment methods from cash to contactless (including Apple Pay) and also have a range of features from twin printers for double ticket capacity to HD video screens for an engaging way to communicate to your patients or as an additional revenue stream.
METRIC’s comprehensive back office system, Mi-Office, gives you complete visibility for managing your car park including a live dashboard for an at-a-glance overview.
We also work with parking management companies and can easily integrate with a third-party management system.
METRIC’s ANPR integrated terminals offer a solution that is simple and user friendly. When a car park user enters the area the system captures an image of the vehicle by ANPR cameras, allowing the customer barrier-free entry to the car park. Following their visit, the user enters their vehicle registration at the METRIC parking terminal and is presented with images on a large HD colour screen that match the details entered, they then select and confirm their vehicle and pay for the amount of time they have stayed.
The advantage of a pay-on-exit system such as an ANPR or barrier-controlled parking system is that it allows patients a stress-free parking experience by allowing them to pay on return rather than trying to estimate how long they will be at their appointments.
In fact, advice from the UK Government states: “Trusts should consider installing ‘pay on exit’ or similar schemes so that drivers pay only for the time that they have used.”
METRIC’s barrier controlled system, Xparc, offers a complete pay-on-exit solution that doesn’t require enforcement. We have a range of options including ticketed and ticketless systems, pay-on-exit terminals, and a payment app for pre-booking or easy payment to avoid any queues at the paystation terminals.
