The semester’s drawing to a close, grads are scheduling celebrations, and the prospect of summer is right around the corner. But now is the time to start planning for smarter parking next fall. And it’s not because parking guidance is a long and laborious project that needs all the spare time you can muster. Although that’s true for most parking technology systems, OpenSpace from Parking Logix can be up and running in just a morning. So what’s the rush?
Delays and Pricing
Last minute ideas and projects are never simple to put into place. But that’s not the only reason you should be thinking about smart parking as the school year ends. Supply chain issues can affect any industry at any time, as we’ve all seen with the shortage of cars and spike in prices. Now is the time to order what you need for the start of the school year.
Take the Time to Customize
Take the time to customize your OpenSpace system to work for you. Do you want sensors installed in speed humps or directly on the road surface? Do you want to share parking availability data with students at your campus entrance or outside each parking lot? Or do you also want to share that data on your website? Does your school have an app? Our api integration can easily push data right to your app so students can access data on available parking spaces right from their phones.
Once you get your system installed and it’s up and running, you can discover how the system works best for you. Do you want to show lot full when it’s at 95% capacity? How do you want to set parameters and how will you use data and reports? How can the cloud help you optimize your OpenSpace system?
Don’t wait to try to get everything right as you deal with the many other systems and challenges of starting a new year. Plan ahead and enjoy your summer in peace. Plus, having your system up and running early lets you test it out, discover how it works, and get the most of it.
Find out how OpenSpace can be installed in just one morning. Learn how it can help students and faculty know where parking spots are available. And become familiar with the web-based backend that shows you valuable data and reporting to help you make smarter decisions about parking management and development.
Now is the time to get OpenSpace ready for the school year. Don’t wait!
