Why Digital Enforcement Is One of the Best Practices in a Parking Facility

By March 23, 2022Blog

In a parking garage, the process of enforcement can be both costly and time-consuming. So, for your benefit, we’ve outlined why digital enforcement has become a best practice and how it can ensure compliance, while collecting critical data within a parking facility. 

Strategize for the future 

Digital parking enforcement is a forward-thinking decision that both facility managers and drivers can benefit from. The days of accepting cash payments at a kiosk or distributing hand-written tickets are long gone. Cloud-based parking enforcement systems address the needs of governments, institutions and businesses by providing a solution to design, manage and enforce their parking requirements all through the use of technology. Going digital will make enforcement more manageable, accurate and reduce required resources. It is in the best interest of one’s facility to allow technology to lay a foundation that will simplify the parking management process for operators, and ultimately enhance the overall experience for drivers.

Let technology enhance your facility

Being able to track vehicles within a facility and identify if they’re complying with rates and rules is one of the perks of digital enforcement. License plate recognition (LPR) uses cameras to read license plates, input the vehicle’s information into the system and confirm permit access or payment status. This decreases overhead costs while removing the potential for human error when tracking vehicle plates. Additionally, having access to mobility information in the facility provides an added layer of safety. In instances of car theft, runaway suspects, and burglaries, there is a concrete trail of visitors to reference. Digital technology supports parking enforcement through the accurate and reliable information it’s able to store and apply in a parking facility.

Understand the data 

Having a birds-eye view of an entire facility allows parking operators to oversee their operation – even after hours. The data compiled through parking technology like LPR can be processed into reports that can help reassess the needs of a facility. Having this information available and connected within a business platform also provides the necessary data to manage a marketing strategy, patrolling schedules and pricing. By understanding mobility trends, managers can track when the facility experiences higher volumes of vehicles and when to adjust prices based on demand. Moreover, having access to a database of vehicles ensures error-free ticketing and helps to avoid repeat offenders. Digital enforcement is a sustainable and trustworthy tool that will improve inefficiencies for an organization.
