Parking guidance systems let drivers know where and when parking spots are available.
How does parking guidance benefit lot owners? How does it improve your bottom line?
Firstly, parking counting systems like OpenSpace help you offer better customer service. Nobody likes looking for a spot. By letting drivers know how many spots are available and where to find them, you offer a valuable service that saves people from wasting time circling for that elusive spot that may or may not even exist.
Secondly, parking guidance reduces emissions and congestion. At any given time, 1/3 of local traffic consists of cars simply looking for somewhere to park. That equals a lot of wasted gas and needless pollution as well as unnecessary traffic congestion on local roads. Helping get those cars into parking spots makes the air cleaner and the roads clearer.
Another key benefit of platforms like OpenSpace is that they help you better manage multiple assets. When you have multiple lots or even just multiple parking levels, you don’t want every driver to gather at the same lot or area in hopes of finding a spot. With OpenSpace, you provide clear data on how many spots are available on each level or in each lot so drivers know where to head to find a spot quickest.
Lastly, parking guidance offers invaluable data to help you maximize your parking resource. With detailed data on peak ingress and egress points, you know what’s going on in your lot and when. That data helps you make better decisions on when to do maintenance as well as when pricing should be adjusted to reflect demand.
Ultimately, using a parking counting system like OpenSpace helps increase revenue by keeping your customers happy, your lots better managed, and your spots full.
