Text2Valet Parking Solution From DCS Uses Telit's CC864-DUAL CDMA/1xRTT Module
Text2Valet enables direct SMS messaging to valet stands. Requests for pickup sent direct to cellular printer located at the stand.
RALEIGH, N.C. – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services and DCS Solutions, a provider of high-quality wireless data products, solutions, and services to the wireless data market, today announced that DCS is to utilize a wireless cellular printer that employs Telit’s 800/1900 MHz CDMA/1xRTT CC864-DUAL module in its innovative parking solution.
Text2Valet is a simple to use, cost effective, unique communications solution for businesses that operate a vehicle valet service. The uniqueness comes from the use of a cellular wireless printer operating on a nationwide CDMA cellular network. Customers are not required to download any type of app onto their mobile phones; instead, they simply use their own SMS functionality, making the service available even to non-smart phones.
At drop off, vehicle owners receive a valet ticket with a local telephone number. When ready to depart, customers simply send a text message to the phone number on the valet ticket. The request for vehicle pickup is sent directly to the cellular printer located at the valet stand. Valet attendants are prompted immediately to retrieve the vehicle. This improves comfort, convenience as well as personal security for valet patrons.
“We recognized the need for a truly mobile parking solution that did not require an Internet connection. In addition we wanted to deliver the industry’s lowest cost solution without cutting corners,” said Chris Bursey, managing partner, of DCS.
“Text2Valet is another great DCS product. It is an innovative turnkey solution that delivers significant benefits to operators of a valet service as well as their customers,” said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America.
