MINNEAPOLIS, May 5, 2014—GateKeeper Systems, Inc., a leader in commercial vehicle management and parking access control systems for airports, today announced that Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport will implement GateKeeper’s Commercial Vehicle Management (CVM) software.
As part of an RFID-based ground transportation system, GateKeeper’s CVM software automates many of the manual operational and administrative processes required to provide transportation for passengers arriving and leaving an airport. In conjunction with GateKeeper’s CVM software, Fort Lauderdale, among the 20 busiest airports nationwide, will also utilize the company’s GSIVendor software to reduce the airport’s administrative burden.
GSIVendor is a powerful tool which enables Ground Transportation Operators to complete an airport permit application, update their account information and access activity/trip charge data. This capability shifts some administrative tasks to the Ground Transportation Operators while approval of the Operators’ updates remains in the control of airport staff.
“This project implements a significant amount of technology that we have successfully implemented at over 30 airports. Use of the system results in substantial efficiencies for Airport staff will provide better service and reduced costs,” said Lynn Richardson, President of GateKeeper Systems.
GateKeeper Systems teamed with RFID tag and reader manufacturer TransCore to submit a proposal for a turn-key system, which was selected over other proposals in a competitive process. The installation, which will include 29 lanes of RFID equipment, is scheduled to be completed by late September 2014.
