Building management is hard enough and when you add parking to the mix, it can be a nightmare. We’ve all experienced parking issues; having to park in awkward places while spending more money than we want to. With cities (and even small towns) experiencing population growth, parking becomes increasingly more chaotic and sometimes impossible to manage for building managers (also referred to as property or facility managers).
As a property owner or real estate developer, no doubt one of your concerns is how to not only accommodate parking for tenants but also their guests and visitors to the building. Because parking space is maybe limited in the area, what can you do?
Take a look at five ways parking solutions by ParqEx can help with building management.
1. Are You Looking To Generate More Revenue?
Property Managers have the option to charge for each booking, generating revenue toward offsetting project costs. Through our technology platform, you’re able to list any parking spots that are underutilized and rent it out hourly, daily weekly or monthly. By listing the parking spots on our ParqEx Marketplace, it makes your parking spot available to thousands of users looking to rent out parking in your neighborhood or building. We use a proprietary AI based predictive algorithm to generate more revenue per parking spot while making sure it is available for when you need it.
If a renter books your parking spot, you start earning revenue immediately for renting out your parking spaces. Conversely, if you realize your parking areas are too limited, you can find and acquire parking spots owned by others in the area.
2. A Self-Managed Parking Solution
Automation is a big part of our software solution. Even if you do have parking, managing the availability of these parking spaces can be tedious and error prone, resulting in unnecessary tows, expenses, and annoyed tenants. Unless you are able to hire a parking operator, doing this yourself takes you away from your main job and doesn’t offer much benefit.
Our app can help you fully automate several functions of your parking management to help you reduce your operating costs and generate new income. You’ll also save time and reduce stress worrying about keeping on top of garage and gate openers, managing access, payments or managing data on them.
The mobile era we live in makes it possible to change how your tenants access the parking spaces and how you control access to these parking spaces. Take a peek at our Access+ technology – Virtual Garage Door Opener.
3. Improving Security
Parking lots and garages can sometimes be vulnerable to unauthorized access and abuse. It is common to see unauthorized vehicles parked in parking spaces. It becomes very difficult for building managers to enforce parking rules and security in these self-managed parking spaces. How do you do it? Hiring security guards or your own security equipment is an option but it could cost a fortune.
Through our Enforcer app, you can bring a sophisticated digital enforcement solution. We call it The Enforcer where you monitor your parking area at all times through your smartphone. The Enforcer app from ParqEx allows you to see exactly what vehicles should be in your lot and when. With our simple dashboard, immediately see who is and isn’t supposed to be on your property. Enforcer app tracks it all.
You’ll also have our Access+ app to help you control the gates to your parking garage. Now you can enforce exactly who parks in your garage and who doesn’t.
4. Creates an Easier Way to Reserve Parking for Guests
Some of you who run companies may need parking for special guests during meetings or other business events. Those of you living in condos or apartments may also need parking for your guests when holding a party at your residence.
All you need is our GuestParq app to take care of these situations. It’s simple to reserve parking areas for the above reasons. GuestParq allows residents to transfer parking passes to guests prior to their arrival.
Using this will help improve security and offer guest parking in your building, making your property even more valuable and tenant friendly.
5. Doing Away With Paper Tickets
More and more companies are going paperless now to avoid paper filing and possible lost documents. Before our app was available, most parking management had to deal with paper parking tickets when ticketing cars.
The Enforcer app lets you use a digital ticketing system for parking violations. However, keep in mind we’ll print paper tickets for you if you need them.
