Digital payment solution for visitor moorings
After the successful launch of new charging points for electric boats in Cowes Harbour on the UK’s Isle of Wight earlier this summer, Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) has improved the payment system for visitors.Both Trinity Landing and Town Quay in Cowes now have an easy to use smartphone payment system for all short stay visitor moorings of RIBS and small craft. The system was designed specifically for CHC by parking and payments specialist Avalon.
“Cowes Harbour had identified that visitor mooring payments were not user-friendly and Avalon’s system has brought them into the digital age,” said Avalon director Tim Watkins. “The previous process was totally manual and not at all convenient for users who had to walk to the office and rely on the availability of a member of staff.”
Visitors simply use their mobile device to scan the QR code, enter a few key details and pay for their mooring, leaving them more time to enjoy their visit.
