WPL Manager

A complete WPL (Workplace Parking Levy) enforcement solution.

TES developed the very first ANPR based Workplace Parking Levy system and back office for Nottingham City Council back in 2011.  Their hugely successful scheme is seen as a very efficient alternative to congestion charging with operating costs running at only 5% of the income meaning the majority of receipts have been invested back into the local transport infrastructure.

TES new cloud based WPL enforcement solution ‘WPL Manager’ will allow authorities adopting WPL powers to manage their WPL surveys remotely from any compatible web browser.

The TES WPL solution consists of three main elements, The WPL Manager Back Office, Mobile and Fixed ANPR systems and a dedicated Android App.

Key Features

  • The WPL Manager back office is a cloud-based system and is accessible from any compatible web browser via a secure https connection.
  • The system controls the management of all car park surveys undertaken for the Workplace Parking Levy scheme.
  • WPL Manager processes surveys carried by TES GEN3 mobile and fixed ANPR systems as well as data collected by officers using a dedicated mobile phone application.
  • WPL Manager can also be linked to permit management systems to obtain employer and premise details.
  • Survey data is imported in to the WPL Back office via 4G or Wi-Fi from the ANPR cars and Phone Apps and Fixed ANPR cameras using a secure web service.
  • Each survey is assigned a unique ID.
