GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Smart Parking (PSP) app bagged a gold award at the International Convention on Quality Control Circles (ICQCC) in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Themed “Built Back Better Through Quality Efforts”, ICQCC, which was held from Nov 15 to 18, is an annual event participated by 13 countries including Singapore, China, India, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Penang local government committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo said the 47th ICQCC was endorsed by the Indonesian Quality Management Association.

“The objective of ICQCC is to drive improvements or innovations from around the world, especially in the Asian region.

“It gives opportunities for participants from different countries to gain as well as share their knowledge and experiences,” he said during a press conference to announce the good news at the state assembly building in Lebuh Light.

Jagdeep said 3,895 participants took part in ICQCC this year.

“From that number, 328 participants from 65 innovation groups represented 40 organisations from the public and private sectors in Malaysia,” he said.

The PSP app was implemented to make it easier for motorists to park and pay.

“There are 12,000 public parking spaces on the island and 24,000 on the mainland.

“With PSP, parking coupons are no longer required and this saves on printing costs.

“The PSP app has been widely used since its launch in 2019. “It has been downloaded 989,328 times as of Nov 19 and active users number 216,144.”

He said with the PSP, Penang Island City Council had collected RM31,892,698 and Seberang Prai City Council (MBSP) RM14,606,858 in parking fees.

PSP is an initiative by the state government to realise the Penang2030 vision to become an internationally recognised smart state.

PSP also received the Malaysia Technology Excellence Awards award on IoT Sensor for Smart Mobility Implementation in 2019 and the Penang Chief Minister Award in 2020.
