Success Stories
A few examples of how Cale products and services have created high-value solutions.

Charity-Terminal in Berlin, Germany

Since 1st September 2008, the municipality of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf in Berlin has been trying out a completely new method of collecting money for ‘public good’ projects in the area. The Cale partner stadtraum GmbH has developed a pilot project where a Cale WebTerminal 2120 has been installed in the vicinity of the Memorial Church and close to the famous Kurfürstendamm.

Park and donate

As well as finding standard parking functions at the terminal, users will be presented with additional buttons for making donations to support local projects not normally funded from the standard Council budget.

When customers buy a conventional parking ticket, they are presented with the opportunity to make a fixed contribution to projects in the area. However, it is also possible to make a contribution of any value, without purchasing a parking ticket.

Description of projects

On the touch-screen display of the terminal, the donor will find information and pictures describing the various projects and what the funding will be used for. Further functions can also be added for example tourist information or details of other areas of interest around the city. 

Charity initiative for Cale America

Cale America has become further involved in the communities in which Cale terminals are installed. The Cale USA Gives Back campaign involves Cale America installing a specially marked terminal that accepts charitable donations for a charity nominated by the customer. Cale America has offered to support all aspects of the special terminal, including receipt paper, parts, and monthly back-office service fees.

The Cale Gives Back terminal will accept coin and credit card payment and will provide a receipt marked with the charity’s name for tax deduction purposes. 100% of the donations will be issued to the customer’s nominated charity, and the terminal will remain supported by Cale America for as long as the charity nominated by the customer believes the programme is successful.
