Mackay Meters partners with UIC for NFC parking meter payments

Mackay Guardian SOLO

The new solution, dubbed Mackay Guardian SOLO, is a single space wireless parking meter that supports contactless and NFC payments, as well as credit cards, tokens, Mackay smart chip cards and coins (view press release). The new solution supports most contactless credit cards, including MasterCard PayPass and Visa payWave, and mobile payment apps such as Google Wallet and Isis Mobile Wallet. 

Adrian O’Neil, CTO at Mackay Meters, said the new solution is a “natural” answer to the “availability of contactless credit cards and NFC technology in cell phones.” Regarding UIC, he commented that the two companies “have had a strong and lengthy relationship, so it was only fitting that we build upon that association.”
