Hospitals face myriad expenses with constantly changing technology, diverse departments with unique budgetary needs, and efforts to stay on the cutting edge of medicine. Parking very often is not at the forefront of a hospital’s budgetary plans.
And while hospital management may be well aware of the benefits of parking counting systems in getting patients and personnel where they need to be faster and calmer, the expense may outweigh the benefits.
While it’s true that traditional parking counting systems that involve wiring sensors into every single spot can be prohibitively expensive, there is an alternative.
OpenSpace by Parking Logix is a parking counting system that bypasses the expensive and time-consuming legwork involved in traditional systems. Instead of wiring each individual parking spot, OpenSpace provides highly accurate sensors at ingress and egress points. The sensors are completely wireless and convey all parking counting data to a variable message sign mounted at the entrance of each lot or level.
All parking data is also transmitted remotely to the cloud so that parking needs and concerns can be assessed.
Already used in many hospitals across North America, OpenSpace is helping medical centers and hospitals to provide the advantage of parking counting to their patients, visitors, and staff without the exorbitant cost and extended lot closures that other parking counting systems require.
