Permit parking doesn’t have to be complex, we use state-of-the-art permit systems together with our extensive expertise to give you a hassle-free solution.


What Parking Permit Management Options do you offer?

There are various systems that can identify authorised users of a car park, including:

  • The traditional method which involves displaying a permit/ticket in the windscreen of the vehicle.
  • Vehicles included on a digital authorised user list that records the vehicle registration mark (VRM), applicable to paid parking, permit parking, and staff parking.
  • Max Stay car parks, where any vehicle can use the space, but a time limit is imposed on their stay.

We manage clients that operate using each of the above parking permit methods.


Traditional Parking Permits

Although displaying tickets in a car windscreen is the traditional method of identifying authorised users, advancements in parking technology in recent years has meant that it is no longer the most effective solution. Physical permits can be suitable for some sites, the pros and cons are listed below:


  • Familiarity
  • Minimal technical ability required
  • Ease of visual verification


  • Permits and tickets can be easily lost or stolen
  • A cost to replacing lost or damaged permits
  • Risk of fraudulent copying of permits
  • Users often forget to display their permits
  • Permits can be shared among multiple users
  • Administering physical permits requires significant staff hours
  • There is a constant need for replacement to keep permits up to date

Digital Parking Permits | BW-Permit

BW-Permit stands as our premium parking permit solution, offering multiple bespoke functions that cater to the needs of all users. Both the client and permit holders are provided with individual logins, enabling both parties (if permitted) to manage various elements within the system. We design a tailored permit webpage that can operate as a standalone site or be seamlessly linked to the client’s own website, see example below:

This site can be tailored to the specific needs of each client/site, offering numerous customisable options.


How It Works:

We collaborate with our clients to customise the permit system according to their requirements. This process involves:

Creating a Landing Page:
This serves as the initial point where permit holders are directed when they require a permit. It is also the platform for managing live permits, storing contact details, vehicle registrations, and allowing permit holders to manage their accounts. They can apply to change information, including vehicle details, and handle payments if applicable.

Designing an Application Form:
For new users applying for a permit, a fully customisable application form is created. Questions can be added or removed based on the site’s needs. The form allows for document uploads, such as driving licenses, utility bills, staff IDs, etc. Completed applications can be sent either directly to the client or to BW for approval/denial. An auto-approve function can also be set under specific conditions.

Determining Permissions and Charges:
When deciding on the permissions to be granted to permit holders, the client holds the authority to set permission levels for accessing and amending the system. For instance, they can determine the number of registrations permit holders can save at one time, impose restrictions on the number of amendments to stored information, and decide whether amendments/additions are automatically accepted or require approval from the client/BW. It is important to note that our system is designed to accommodate scenarios where a permit holder is allowed to store multiple registrations but is only permitted to park one vehicle at a time.

Additionally, if applicable, clients have the flexibility to decide on charges for permit holders using BW-Permit. This feature serves as a revenue-generating opportunity, allowing the creation of multiple tariffs with the activation of auto-renewal/payment.
