Manchester’s VST Enterprises has won a nationwide contract to install its scanable payment technology system across the country’s car parks.

VCode allows users to pay for parking by scanning a code from a distance of up to 100m, with a free, downloadable app.

“We live in a world where we rely on technology for so much of our day-to-day lives. Making payments as simple and secure as possible is something we’ve come to expect with almost every transaction we make, whether it’s physical or digital and car parking should be no different,” explained Louis James Davis, CEO of VST Enterprises.

“Unlike traditional payment methods, VCode provides drivers with a speedy, convenient alternative for paying for parking. Users simply need to tap in their registration number, the duration of their stay and confirm payment with their pre-stored bank or PayPal details.”

Through the deal with payment platform specialist, Ecom6, VCode will be added to more than 485,000 car park pay points.
