Saving money with ANPR systems

Do you know what your business loses when a potential customer cannot find a space in your car park?

If your average customer spend is £100, having an unauthorised vehicle parked in your car park could cost you over £500 a day in lost revenue for just that one space*.

Spread that figure over several parking spaces for a whole year and the impact could be the difference between profit and bankruptcy.

We can prevent this with our ANPR car park management solution installed within as little as two weeks at no cost to you.

What is ANPR?

An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) System is an advanced piece of technology designed to read vehicle registration plates when they enter and exit car parking premises.

Using advanced automatic vehicle registration recognition system cameras which operate in conjunction with complex algorithms and infrared technology, we can ensure angled, mirrored plates and personalised plates do not impair the ability to detect and interpret each registration plate, no matter the time of day or weather. Plates are captured at entry and exit, images are securely saved and time stamped – vehicles identified to be in breach of the car park’s terms and conditions are then processed and ownership details are gained.

After entering the car park, vehicle owners will be required to enter their registration number into a ticketing machine to validate their arrival. Some car parks will require payment or permission validation (known as a permit) via a smartphone app or an on premise tablet.

ANPR cameras work in conjunction with purchased parking tickets or permits to ensure vehicles do not outstay their allotted parking time or park without permission. .

Creative Car Park pioneered the application of ANPR technology usage as a car park management solution. Today we manage more than 1,750 locations on the behalf of small-to-medium business owners and franchisee operators. Regardless of your shape, size or car park layout, get in touch with us today and speak to one of our car park consultants.

Why use an ANPR parking management system

We at Creative Car Park specialise in management logistics and offer unique solutions that are completely tailored to meet your business’s requirements.

ANPR systems are completely versatile and have been successfully implemented in various ways throughout the modern world, including in tolling, bus lane enforcement, intelligent transport systems, traffic management and on weighbridges.

Implementing an ANPR parking management system for your business can free up your otherwise busy staff members. It can also help you identify whether there are any unauthorised cars taking up space on your property.

With Creative Car Park, you can upgrade your parking premises to operate 24 hours a day, completely free through our car park management solutions. TrafficGuard is an example of this, which relies on a combination of our unique automatic vehicle registration recognition car parking system and sophisticated applications designed specifically for the parking industry. From the beginning to the end of our service, our team will handle everything from organising the initial site survey, installation of systems, sending out ‘tickets’ (known as PCNs), and arranging the collection of ANPR parking payments, while at all times aligning with your company’s name and branding.

In addition to our TrafficGuard service, we can adapt your ANPR system and identify potential add-ons depending on the car park management scheme you wish to follow.



The Creative Car Park TrafficGuard system was designed as a viable alternative to clamping or towing unauthorised cars in parking spaces. The quick and easy installation of cameras at the entrance/ exit of your car park allows us to use car park registration recognition to photograph each vehicle as it enters and leaves.

Through this system, we are capable of identifying vehicles which have breached your car park rules, sending them a ticket in the post. Our service is tailored to enforce the specific rules you set for your parking space, 365 days a year.

Through TrafficGuard, you can also have access to vital statistics based on car park activity from customers/guests and staff members. These reports can be formatted to your preference, along with the generation of any data. This can include:

  • Customer shopping patterns
  • Parking habits
  • Parking duration
  • Arrival and departure patterns
  • Revenue generation possibilities
  • Parking capacity

All collected data can be referenced against provided criteria (for example different weather conditions) to establish how they may affect parking patterns. While working in collaboration with your environmental consultants, we can also advise on the eco-friendly benefits of implementing an efficient automatic vehicle recognition system and car park management strategy.

ANPR Car Park Management

The process begins when a vehicle approaches the entry or exit point of the car park. The ANPR camera captures a clear image of the vehicle’s number plate. The ANPR system then cross-references the number plate with the car park’s database, which contains information on registered vehicles, valid permits, or paid-parking sessions. ANPR systems are designed to provide efficient and secure car park management.

ANPR stands for Automatic Number Plate Recognition. It is an advanced technology used to effectively monitor and manage vehicle access and parking within parking facilities. ANPR cameras are strategically installed at entry and exit points of the car park, capturing images of vehicles’ number plates as they enter and exit the premises.

ANPR systems are triggered when a vehicle approaches the entry or exit points equipped with ANPR cameras. The ANPR cameras are designed to automatically detect and capture images of vehicles’ number plates as they come into view. This automatic triggering capability ensures a seamless and efficient process for managing vehicle access and monitoring parking activities in the car park.

Control and management of an ANPR system lies with the car park management company and the facility owners. They have access to the system’s database and they use this data to ensure smooth operations, manage vehicle access and enforce parking regulations, which ultimately contributes to a well-organised and customer-friendly parking facility.
