DoDoHome Consolidates Data Capture with the 9400

Profile
DoDoHome is a business unit of Chung-Hsin Electric & Machinery MFG Corp. specializing in system integration of automatic parking management, primarily to government agencies. In order to efficiently manage parking space and generate revenues to support operations, Taoyuan county, in Taiwan, government outsources curb-parking management to third parties.

Challenge
The parking meter attendants previously carried a PDA, a digital camera and a portable BT printer for car ticketing. After they tapped in plate number, car model, and curb number, they printed a parking ticket. They placed the ticket under the car's windshield wipers, then took a photo. Since the photos and ticketing information were stored in two devices, the person doing data consolidation had to synchronize the files, causing time delays and numerous errors.

Deployment
DoDoHome chose the 9400 with camera for parking curb management. The 9400 is rated IP64 with 1.5-meter drop resistance, and the 3.5" bright transflective display is ideal for outdoor use. The miniSD slot supports up to 4GB data memory to accommodate a day's worth of data and photos. DoDoHome integrated the photo taking function into the application software, so now the operators only need to carry a 9400 mobile computer and BT portable printer. The new solution instantly accelerated the ticketing process, streamlining timely payments and increasing efficiency while eliminating errors.
