Parking Ticket Pay-or-Dispute Mobile App
NYC Department of Finance
DOF administers the adjudication and payment collection processes for parking tickets issued in the city. DOF was seeking to include an option for paying or adjudicating a ticket via mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets that will incorporate mobile-specific functionality (such as using the device’s camera to capture ticket information and evidence used in hearings).
How GCOM Assisted
The Pay or Dispute Parking App made paying and requesting hearings for parking and selected traffic violations faster and easier for metro New Yorkers and more efficient to process for DOF workers with the support of multiple languages. Our proposed solution concepts and guiding principles resulted in a beautiful and efficient mobile application. Solution concepts and guiding principles are listed below:
Minimize data entry and the number of screens.
Leverage mobile device features like cameras, barcode scanners, and QR scanners to capture ticket information and includes cloud-based optical character resolution service to populate ticket numbers captured by mobile device cameras.
Store auto-fill fields like address and credit card information (with CVV number and expiration date) securely on the device, not in the cloud.
Extra easy data capture and submission for hearing request evidence.
Leverages multi-channel communication to update users of ticket status changes for hearing requests.
Provide administrative and reconciliation tools or processes for city workers.
