Built in-house by SP+, our suite of Sphere-equipped products ranges from our patent-pending in-lane terminal for card present parking session initiation and transactions, to our digital-only solutions that leverage signage, SMS and license plate reader technology to ease ingress and egress for both daily and monthly parkers.

Plus, gain insight into revenue, entry and exit data, offer validated parking, assign parkers access to restricted areas of your facility, and provide parkers with the ability to pay when they are unable to prior to exit, among other features.

Get your customer’s checked in faster.

SP+’s proprietary handheld, mobile point of sale device was built specifically to expedite parking sales at event venues and make remote airline check-in at airports and cruise ports faster, offering both credit card and contactless payment options.

Designed to handle high-volume and high revenue facilities, it can easily be expanded to address additional payment needs, such as a backup payment option if gates go offline. Through advanced capabilities that streamline parking payment, and management tools that optimize operational efficiencies, parkers are able to spend less time and aggravation entering and exiting the facility.
