A comforting stress-free experience: For patients and visitors alike.
The process of finding a parking space in a sizable facility can be stressful for anyone. This is especially true for a hospital’s patients and visitors: who typically have weightier, more consuming issues on their minds.
The installation of a camera based Park Assist® smart-sensing system for parking guidance is an economical way to elevate the customer experience, to manage the complex ebb-and-flow of multiple user groups, and to further differentiate your brand in today’s highly competitive healthcare services environment.
Easing the process of entering and departing.
Keeping clinical schedules on track.
Park Assist’s next-generation guidance features are a distinct customer benefit for both outpatients and visitors.
Upon arrival, our advanced wayfinding signage and smart-sensor cameras combine to direct parkers quickly to open spaces. This reduces time-to-park (T2P) by 36% to nearly 63%*, substantially lowers harmful CO2 emissions throughout the facility, and helps clinical areas to avoid the snowball effect of late patient arrivals.
* According to a science-based benchmarking study on time-to-park conducted by Park Assist in collaboration with the Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC). This groundbreaking before-and-after PGS analysis encompassed two parking facilities with a combined total of 7.903 individually M4-monitored bays.

Upon exit, our exclusive Park Finder™ add-on software module helps distracted patients/visitors to easily locate their vehicles. Thanks to our integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR), this valuable add-on enables a Parker or a staff member to find any parked vehicle by entering the license plate number via a touchscreen kiosk, an enabled pay station, or an integrated mobile app. This feature is available with a Sparx Premium Subscription utilizing our CX+ API package.
Alerting you when protocols are violated.
Keeping track of who’s going in and out.
An ongoing challenge for hospitals is the daily management of parking policies for doctors, nurses and staff. Our Park Alerts™ add-on software module uses LPR to automatically monitor who’s parking where in your facility — sending instant alerts when violations occur. This helps ensure various user groups are parking in their assigned areas, while enabling the core Sparx system to maintain a complete inventory of parked vehicles for security purposes.
