Our seamless wayfinding: State-of-the-art sitewide parking guidance
The quality and customer-friendliness of a parking facility are often overlooked by many properties. However, the parking experience can be used to elevate the first impression for valued guests and visitors, to set their expectations for the remainder of the visit, and to enhance a property’s overall brand-building strategy.
The Park Assist approach to parking guidance technology is to minimize a parker’s stress and uncertainty from the process. The overarching goal is to provide a seamless and stress-free experience for each parker— from initial entry to an open space to exit — while improving overall traffic flow through a facility or a set of facilities.
Next-generation guidance at every key decision point
Through the unique synergy of our camera-based smart-sensor system and customizable wayfinding signage, parkers are treated to a higher level of guidance and convenience from the moment they arrive — along with valuable follow-up guidance at every key decision point.
- Signs upon arrival. For properties with multiple parking areas, a multi-facility sign announces the number of available spaces at each garage or lot. This continually updated guidance information enables parkers to determine the best facility to park in at any given moment.
- Secondary signage within a chosen garage. Once a parker has decided to park in a specific garage, a dedicated monument sign displays the number of available spaces on each level.
- Directional interior in-aisle pointers. Once a parker has committed to searching for a space on a particular level, these guidance signs enable a parker to make on-the-spot decisions (left, right, or straight) based on the number of available spaces.
Utilizing LCD-NAV signs, you can easily engage and attract greater attention from customers by providing up-to-the-minute content updates at all entry and exit points. LCD-NAV communicates critical information more effectively with dynamic content changes. Whether it’s providing guidance to potential parkers, alerting your customers of garage maintenance, or onscreen branding/promotional initiatives, the LCD-NAV enhances parking guidance, increases garage efficiency, and taps into additional revenue opportunities.
Compared to typical inserts, our VMS-NAV’s LED matrix brings far more versatility and resolution to the picture. This active area can be populated with dynamic 24-bit RGB text and icons instead of a limited set of predefined messages and graphics. Millions of colors/gradations enable signage to be tightly aligned with brand and architectural palettes. Enhanced brightness pixels, continuously adjustable, are of particular benefit for outdoor signage.
With generous-sized characters for exceptional readability, our advanced LED displays are software configurable and have high brightness for outdoor use. The high-quality construction of these durable inserts also keeps detrimental dust and water away from sensitive electronics.
Antiquated signage protocols in use today date as far back as the 1950s. VMS inserts from Park Assist are engineered to use current-day Ethernet protocols with DHCP- enabled connectivity. This greatly simplifies installation and operations while reducing related costs. Technicians can also be easily trained to configure inserts across the network, compose customized sign libraries, and quickly troubleshoot connectivity issues that may arise.
Our modular VMS-NAV inserts are sized for ready insertion into enclosures across our varied signage portfolio. Retrofit opportunities are also possible, depending on the individual system scenario.
