Imperial is an information systems provider with specialist knowledge of parking and a proven track record of developing business-critical systems for major public and private sector organisations.

Imperial was established in 1988 as a provider of systems integration, implementation and software bespoke services to the corporate sector. The company was started by staff from Imperial Tobacco after Hanson Trust took over and significantly restructured it; the company retains a heritage of a formal approach to development and quality from its ‘big company’ origins.

Imperial provided IT services to Hanson for a number of years, assisting with IT reorganisations in a number of subsequent acquisitions such as Mothercare, Habitat and ARC. Other prominent large customers with whom Imperial worked at board level included BET (now Rentokil Initial) and NCP, in whose preparation for sale Imperial was instrumental.

In October 2003 Imperial acquired Langdale Systems, a leading parking software provider then owned by NCP, who benefited substantially from the full development resources and considerable expertise of Imperial in software development and systems integration technologies ranging from IBM 400 to Oracle to Microsoft SQL and Visual Basic.

This development programme was given further impetus following the acquisition of another prominent parking software provider, Compex Development & Marketing, from Vinci Park UK in December 2006.

On 1st November 2009 Imperial Business Systems became a non-trading holding company as Imperial, Langdale and Compex formally merged. The collective client portfolio of Langdale and Compex gave the newly-formed company market-leading status.

Being part of the Imperial Business Systems Group continues to mean that all clients benefit from a stable and successful resource dedicated to the development and application of enforcement technology. The company’s established team of system engineers has pioneered recent advances in parking enforcement technology as a direct result of its close client and e-Government partnerships and its progressive User Group. These ongoing developments are supported by stringent management disciplines, a full range of application support services and an overriding commitment to meet the evolving priorities and operational requirements of each client, as well as periodic changes in traffic management legislation. The software allows for easy integration with third-party products, technologies and interfaces to support the Government’s joined-up approach.
