All of us are aware that car parking systems make it easy for parking lot managers and operators to efficiently run their parking spaces. Given the multitude of such solutions in the marketplace, getting the right car park management system that best fits the needs of your parking facility is really important to enhance the quality and range of services that you provide. The chosen system must also be feature-rich in order to facilitate better management of the space itself.
Advance Systems Access Control Solutions offers a range of hi-end car parking systems loaded with an array of features that cater to specialised needs. Our systems are open to custom changes and integrations, which can be used to churn out sophisticated solutions such as the one installed at Green Isle Hotel.
In order to pick a car parking system that offers unmatched conveniences, it is important for you to better understand the requirements of your parking lot, which you can ascertain based on select factors such as the location and capacity of the space, occupancy at different times of the day, plus of course serious problems that you are currently facing.
Key Factors to Look Out For:
Do make sure that the parking system is easy to use irrespective of who is using it. Parking lot users must find it comfortable for daily use with enough visual indications and features to accept payments and issue tickets. The system must be equally simple yet secure for you and your staff to use as well.
• Installation, Maintenance and Support
Transitioning to an automatic car parking system should not be an elaborate process. Clean and fast installations and setup can save a lot of time and effort. Opt for car parking systems that require minimum maintenance and provide access to prompt and relevant support mechanism to resolve issues in a timely manner.
Your expectations from a car park management system are likely to vary based on the location you serve. If your facility is located in a busy commercial hub of Ireland, streamlining traffic and ensuring space for regular if not most customers will most likely be a priority. You may also want to charge a different rate for peak-hour parking to make space for staff employed at office establishments nearby, or even reserve spaces for regulars, very similar to our parking solution installed at the Ashelaf Shopping Centre.
You also have the option to offer free parking for a limited time for those visiting a neighbourhood pharmacy or store to shop for essentials. Contemporary parking systems are customisable to offer the best conveniences at your facility.
• Rich Features
While it is advisable to invest in a parking system that meets current requirements, opting for an advanced model based on latest technology can help address future requirements without having to switch systems after a few years. Basically, make sure that the system is scalable to meet the growing needs, if and when required. Support for multiple languages and payment modes also prove valuable.
• Pay and Display
Pay and display systems prove an ideal fit for attendant-free, paid parking spaces where people can simply use the system to pay the fee. Great display, easy use, rugged build, secure vaults and the ability to dispense change (coins) are but few features available on this machine. Additional features such as support for multiple payment modes, RFID readers, GSM intercom, and third-party remote control make it all the more easy and secure for you to confidently use this system.
• Integrated Parking Solutions and Access Control
Integrated parking solutions enable operators to manage daily operations of not just one but several parking spaces across different locations without stepping out of the office. Automating ticket issue and fee payments, regulating access and curbing misuse via barriers and exit terminals, communicating via intercom, tracking occupancy using number plate recognition, optimising revenue through flexible peak hour pricing, and managing subscriptions for reserved spaces are all possible though a single, well-designed, intelligent, and integrated parking solution.
