FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Aug. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Conduent Transportation, a unit of business process services and solutions company Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), today announced its selection by the City of Santa Monica, California, to continue providing intelligent parking and curbside management systems and services. The 5-year base contract, plus up to 4 years of options, will expand online and mobile self-help options for customers to manage their account.
“Our partnership with Conduent has been instrumental in helping optimize our parking program and offering our customers easy-to-use systems to resolve their parking citations and procure various parking permits offered by the City,” said Henry Servin, Parking Manager for the City of Santa Monica. “We are very pleased that our online customer access, provided by Conduent, has received numerous compliments for readability and ease of use.”
Since 2004, Conduent has helped the city to simplify its parking programs and deliver a convenient experience for Santa Monica residents, merchants and visitors. Current services include the processing of parking permit applications and citations, as well as the facilitation of payment plans.
Under the new contract, enhanced online and mobile options will make it easier for customers to resolve parking citations and manage parking permits. The city’s online portal will also provide the ability to apply online for a payment plan to resolve overdue citations, upload documents to streamline permit applications, and communicate with customer service through text and additional emails options — contactless solutions that are valuable in the current COVID-19 environment.
