At the highest level, a Rate Structure can be used to store and define the individual rates below it. For example, a facility may have one set of rates for customers with accounts, another set for transient parkers, and yet a 3rd set of rates for oversize vehicles. The facility has the flexibility to define completely different rates and rules for each structure.
Each Rate structure supports the following settings:
Each Rate Structure can contain one or more Rates.
When calculating the amount due, the system can use only one Rate Structure. This is either assigned through the use of a ParkingID (defined later in this document), or by virtue of being the default Rate Structure.
Within a Rate structure, the system will scan through the individual rates comparing the drop-off time of the vehicle with the available times of the Rate. Once a match is found, it stops searching and applies that rate for as long as it is valid. If the selected rate becomes invalid during the period the vehicle was parked, the system will apply the rate for the period it was available and then search for a new rate for the remaining period.
Individual Rate records allow the facility to define separate charges for parking at defined periods. For example, a facility may have rates defined as Early Bird, Weekend Special, Transient, etc.
The rates can also be individually turned on and off as well as prioritized…
To edit the Rate Details of this Rate, the user would click on the Rate Detail link.
The Rate Details section allows the operator to define the complex rules of an individual rate. The full individual rate screen is shown at the top of the column on the right. It is logically divided into four primary sections.
The General Settings area of a Rate Detail record allows the operator to set the following values:
The time restrictions section defines availability periods for this rate. Options are available for each day of the week as well as specific periods of time within those days.
The Charges section defines how much a patron is charged for their stay. The system supports assigning the following types of charges to a ticket:
The Discount After section supports the automatic application of a discount after this rate was in effect for a specified period. The discount can be either a flat dollar amount or a percentage off.
Rates can be tested from the Rate Structure screen
