FIRST U.S. AIRPORT TO CHOOSE A REMOTELY HOSTED GROUND TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
MINNEAPOLIS, December 15, 2011—GateKeeper Systems, Inc., a leader in commercial vehicle management and parking access control systems, today announced that Monterey Regional Airport In Monterey, Calif., has signed a contract to implement a Ground Transportation Management system that uses GateKeeper’s Commercial Vehicle Management (CVM) Software. They are the first airport in the United States to implement a remotely hosted ground transportation management system, which offers significant advantages over locally housed server infrastructure. Monterey’s system will also use mobile RFID readers rather than installing stationary versions for greater detection of vehicle activity.
GateKeeper’s CVM software is part of an RFID-based system that automates many of the manual operational and administrative processes required to provide transportation for passengers arriving and leaving an airport. By choosing remotely hosted servers and software that are shared with other customers, the Monterey Regional Airport lowers its total cost of ownership. It also gains flexibility with hand-held mobile RFID readers rather than installing fixed readers.
