NPS ‘TaPs’ permits and ticketing market with mobile system

Northgate Public Services has launched NPS TaP, a secure, mobile and cloud-based enforcement and permits management solution offered to providers including local authorities, housing associations and hospitals for things like car park ticketing. 

The move opens up new markets for NPS, which builds and runs some of the UK’s largest transport and ticketing schemes including the HGV Levy, the national Blue Badge scheme and London Tribunals.

The solution offers significant efficiency gains and cost savings by delivering through mobile devices such as smartphones and on common IT infrastructure. Alongside self-service permit application pages, there are public online payment and appeals pages that enable the automation of both Penalty Charge Notice payment collections and the processing of appeals information relating to PCNs. 

The NPS TaP-In mobile app is available for the issuing of printed tickets and validating paper or virtual permits.

A spokesperson for Northgate Public Services, said:

“Our experience building and running some of the UK’s biggest and most complex permit management scheme has given us a great insight into building robust, safe and efficient ticketing systems. We know how they work, and we know exactly how to use the technology – be it cloud, or the proliferation of existing, powerful mobile devices – to keep efficiency up and costs down.

“The solution enjoys the same high level of security provided to our policing customers, and is hosted on Amazon AWS Cloud infrastructure, which typically has a 99.95% uptime service level.”

The NPS TaP solution has a simple six step implementation process and a clear and fair 'pay as you go' pricing model with no additional hidden costs. The solution is fully compliant with Government Legislation for RTA84, RTA91 and TMA2004 as well as the BPA and IPC AOS Codes of Practice and associated requirements for POPLA.
