Making guests feel special from the outset: While enhancing control, revenue and security.
When guests visit a destination property or an event venue, or when ticketholders attend an event, they’re usually unfamiliar with your parking facility. They’re also eager to get right to what they came for.
With a camera based Park Assist® smart-sensor system for parking guidance, advanced wayfinding signage and bright signaling LEDs instantly whisk parkers to open spaces. This seamless guidance reduces their parking search time up to 44%.* While quickly filling every available space in your parking facility.
Helping guests find their vehicles upon exit.
Whether they own them or not.
Our smart-sensor parking guidance system can also help visitors on the way out. The addition of the Park Finder™ software extension enables you to offer our exclusive Find Your Car™ locator feature. All a parker has to do is enter a license plate number using a touchscreen kiosk or smartphone app – and/or when inserting a parking ticket at a pay station. In seconds, the core system scours a database of currently parked vehicles – which were identified through our integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) when they entered a space.
Considering a recent survey by Insurance.com found 52% of drivers admit instances of forgetting where they parked, this is a valuable customer-centric feature.** It’s even more valuable for properties frequented by vacationers with rental cars – since their license plate numbers are printed on the keychain itself.
The dynamic pricing power of Park SelectRate™.
Parkers are arriving daily who would gladly pay a premium for one of your most desirable spaces. This includes people who are running late for an event. Families with kids and/or senior members in tow. Or just about anyone desiring a shorter walk to your entrance.
Our Park SelectRate software extension enables you to set premium and conditional pricing rates at will, throughout an entire facility. There’s no need for expensive gate systems or costly loss of spaces. The intelligence-driven Park Assist smart-sensor system is all income. A solution that can instantly increase revenues and the bottom line.
Additional surveillance from a crucial vantage point.
Destination and event properties attract a wide range of patrons – bringing with them a wide range of behaviors. Traditional security systems also have a hard time getting an unobstructed view of the parking spaces themselves, where undesirable events can take place.
With a standard Park Assist installation, smart-sensor cameras are already identifying vehicles and monitoring occupancy in every space. This enables the core system to maintain a complete inventory of parked vehicles for security purposes.
Our Park Surveillance™ software extension can also capture streaming video whenever motion is detected in or around a space. Or continuously, if desired. An expanded level of security – and additional protection against liability – which would otherwise be cost-prohibitive.
Better user group management.
While guarding against parking abuse.
Since every vehicle that parks in a Park Assist monitored facility is identified through LPR, the core system keeps track of exactly who’s using your garage, how often and when. The combination of our Park Insights™ analysis/reporting module and the Park Alerts™ software extension helps to guard against both parking abuse and potentially dangerous situations.
For example, automated notifications can be used to prevent employees from parking in spaces reserved for guests. To ensure season-ticket holders are parking in their appropriate tier. And to call immediate attention to known threat vehicles, to enable quick response by security teams.
