PayByPhone, part of PayPoint plc, has announced recent developments,
including the acquisition of Adaptis Solutions and success in winning
the tender in Paris with VINCI Park. This acquisition and win reinforce
PayByPhone’s position as one of the world’s leading providers of
services to parking authorities.
Acquisition of Adaptis
PayPoint plc has acquired Adaptis Services Limited, which provide a wide
range of parking services, including electronic parking permits,
automatic license plate recognition for parking lot enforcement and
violation notices. With its focus on the parking and transport markets,
Adaptis Solutions is one of the UK’s fastest growing cashless payment
processors. Adaptis developed DASH, a leading transactional processing
platform that allows merchants to accept payments from customers using a
range of technologies and has developed a rich suite of parking
technology services around this platform.
The acquisition is a natural fit alongside PayByPhone’s urban mobility
payment solution which includes parking, tolling, taxis, EV charging,
and bike rentals. The deal will strengthen PayByPhone’s leading position
in the industry, expanding its range of innovative parking products into
permits, violations, and improving PayByPhone’s capacity to bid for
bundled contracts. The combination of PayByPhone and Adaptis will enable
parent company PayPoint to offer a uniquely integrated self-serve
solution across the transportation sector. Announcing the acquisition,
Kush Parikh, President of PayPoint North America, said:
“The acquisition of Adaptis is an exciting step in the ongoing
development of PayPoint’s Mobile & Online strategy and strengthens our
leading position in the parking and urban mobility sectors. It brings a
highly capable team with strong client relationships and a reputation
for rapid innovation.”
PayByPhone at 155k Spaces in Paris
The City of Paris has confirmed that the partnership of PayByPhone and
VINCI Park has been awarded the contract to launch cashless parking for
155,000 parking spaces. Initially available in central Paris in summer
2014, PayByPhone will be extended to residential and business parking
areas by fall 2014 and will be introduced to all other areas of the city
by the end of 2015.
In 2009, PayByPhone became the first phone parking payment service in
France, in Issy-les-Moulineaux, and is now available in more than 30
cities across the country, including the outskirts of Paris. This
successful bid for central Paris follows other recent successes in
PayByPhone’s key markets of the US (Seattle, Massachusetts Bay Transport
Authority (MBTA) and Dallas) and the UK (Lambeth, Southwark, Chelmsford
and Exeter). MBTA (Boston), launched at the end of February, is already
delivering record levels of transactions through PayByPhone’s mobile

Many of the well-known examples of DevOps success we read in blogs on the Internet paint an idyllic picture of DevOps productivity. A team was facing a stodgy, slow-moving operations department, teams weren’t delivering software on time. Those teams moved to DevOps, became proactive about infrastructure and deployment automation, and an overnight transition to productivity ensues. People are promoted, projects are successful, and developers and system administrators dance hand-in-hand in a final...
