A new way of understanding parking
In 2019 Saba introduced number plate reading in 80 car parks as an access and exit method. This innovation meant that short-stay customers could now leave the car park without showing the ticket in the QR reader and that subscribers did not have to use their proximity card at any time, since it was linked to the vehicle registration number. Then the company took a fundamental step to introduce, in the medium term, a new 100% digital payment formula at the facilities, associating the vehicle registration with a bank card and easily managing the entire process through the Saba website or app. Today, number plate based payment is already a reality for various products. The customer, when acquiring them, can enter the registration number of the vehicle and thus save having to show the QR in the readers located at the entrance and exit of the car park. A natural evolution which is expected to be implemented for short-stay customers too in the near future.

In this way, Saba not only has the possibility of getting to know more about its customers and promoting new loyalty programmes, as well as offering more personalized products, but also fulfils one of its maxims: to offer a high level of customer support by making parking easier.
Society has become accustomed today to processes called “seamless” in various facets of life. Our daily life has been simplified by the introduction of a high technological component. Work is being done at Saba to extend this new way of interacting with infrastructure, and business and technological processes are being reviewed daily. In this way, important innovations have been launched in recent years, such as: the use of the VIA T (OBE) not only as a method of exit and payment, but also for access; simplification in applying discounts and promotions through the company's app; remote payment in blue zones; the deployment of 100% digital products through the e-commerce website and, now, number plates as a method of access, exit and payment.
