The central control for your parking management system

The central software platform of NEXT Solutions from DESIGNA

The DESIGNA SUITE covers the basic operational areas: system control, handling of unforeseen events and reporting. The system control enables the setting and control of parking facilities and DESIGNA equipment. Although the DESIGNA parking management system is offered as a fully automated system, some applications require the attention of the operating personnel. The software helps the user to quickly resolve incidents such as a lost ticket in the process flow. The SUITE offers standard reporting functions based on a revised web interface.

The DESIGNA SUITE is the central platform for DESIGNA's NEXT Solutions. A scalable solution with expandable components, the so-called EXTENSIONs, for adaptation to your requirements.

The idea of NEXT Solutions from DESIGNA

With more than 16,000 installations, DESIGNA is one of the world market leaders for automated parking systems. From our extensive experience with a large number of ambitious projects, we have learned that the demand for simple, quickly installable yet scalable solutions is growing. 

With the DESIGNA NEXT Solution we are fulfilling this wish of our customers. The NEXT Solution consists of layers of software, service and hardware that build on each other. This solution is created for projects which have a standardised character. Here the focus is not on individual development and adaptation, but rather a modern, scalable and structured solution that relies heavily on software and standard hardware devices.

To increase flexibility, we have designed the software as "Software-as-a-Service". This means that you as a customer can conveniently use the software components in a monthly subscription model. This gives you the freedom to expand the functions according to your needs or to return to the previous version if the general conditions have changed.

Our Service-Layer grouped wihin three packages - Prioriy, Professional and Expert adapted to the NEXT Solution model. Easy to understand packages create a high level of security for the smooth operation of the DESIGNA parking management system.

The associated DESIGNA devices are designed as standard devices. Using the latest SBC technology, these devices can be easily integrated into the overall architecture. Even as a standard device, you already offer preparations to adapt the range of functions to the requirements of the project.
