Going digital

The City of Copenhagen says a final goodbye to Pay and Display tickets and introduces digital payment when parking within all of the city's pay and display zones. KPMG has been assigned program lead on this exciting digitalisation project. 

 

The new payment solution means that half of the city's parking metres will be replaced by info stands that in addition to providing information about the payment rules and prices in the zones also guide the motorists to digital payment via their mobile phones. The other half of the parking metres will be converted so that they can continue to handle payment by credit card and cash. However, a common feature of both payment methods is that
the motorists no longer need to go back to their cars and put the ticket in the car's windscreen, as their payment is registered digitally. In the future, we need to remember our car registration number (e.g. number plate) when paying for parking – on the other hand, we no longer need to keep track of the Pay and Display ticket.

"With digital parking it will become easier to pay for parking in Copenhagen and we will get far better documentation in this area. Motorists avoid being fined because their Pay and Display ticket has slipped away from the windscreen when the door slammed shut, or when they have confused the receipt with the ticket, or they have put the ticket with the wrong side up. In future, those types of mistakes will be a thing of the past because the motorists are ensured that the payment is documented in the system", says Morten Kabell, Mayor of Technical and Environmental Affairs.

The introduction of new parking metres and info stands is part of a general modernisation and digitalisation of the City of Copenhagen's parking sector. This will come about through five large-scale projects that combined will transform the city's entire parking sector – both externally on the streets and internally in the administration.  

KPMG plays an important role in this transformation through the role as programme manager. About KPMG's role in this comprehensive digitalisation project, Jakob Blicher-Hansen, Head of Public Sector at KPMG, states:

"For the City of Copenhagen this digitalisation project is seen as one of the largest and most important programmes in 2016. At KPMG we are extremely proud to be the chosen trusted advisor as programme manager on this very exciting transformation project"
