The start of a new year often invokes images of cross legged people calmly meditating with soft music in the background as they breathe in good energy and vow to refrain from eating chocolate. The excitement, indulgence, and stress of the holidays are over and everyone is ready for some calm, balance, and improvement. Ironically, January is often the most stressful month as people struggle to keep often unrealistic resolutions. How can you do your part to ensure that 2016 promises less stress and more zen?
One of the primary services that parking counting provides to your customers is stress reduction. Knowing ahead of time how many spots are available takes the stress out of searching for parking. It also reduces the stress of being late; whether to a doctor’s appointment, a college class, a commuter bus, or a flight. Showing drivers that you have parking data that is accurate and dependable lets them know they can rely on you and set their stress aside.
Technology and Stress
Can technology really reduce stress? While technology in many of its forms may increase overall stress, a study conducted by MIT in conjunction with Ford actually found that drivers experienced lower rates of stress when using technology to improve their driving experience. Stress tends to build up incrementally during the day and counterbalancing it at any point can improve overall well-being. Offering drivers parking counting technology to make parking less stressful can therefore reduce their stress levels for the rest of their day- equating your parking lot with actually improving quality of life for parkers.
New Year’s Resolutions
Unlike the countless people out there who January will be the most stressful month for as they come to the foregone conclusion that exercising seven hours a day is just not realistic, hopefully your resolutions were more pragmatic. Perhaps you aimed to give parkers more accurate data by wiring every spot in your lot. That may have seemed practical until you discovered that the cost of that would be so prohibitive, you may as well offer to take them all to Bermuda. It doesn’t have to be. Parking Logix OpenSpaceoffers amazing accuracy at incredibly low cost with our smart, wireless technology. Resolve instead to give us a call. You won’t regret it.
