Four Points Vancouver Airport Hotel Choose Precise ParkLink

four-points-vancouver-airport-hotel.jpg

In the Heart of Richmond, B.C. Golden Village
Four Points Vancouver Airport Hotel is located across the street from Lansdowne Mall & Canada Line Station, as well as McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Mall and Richmond Oval. The hotel  is just 10 minutes from Vancouver International Airport (with complimentary shuttle service to and from) and 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Four Points sits in the Heart of Richmond’s Golden Village and famous “Food Street” that has a selection of over 50 internationally flavoured restaurants within walking distance.

Challenges and Goals
Having recently acquired Coast Hotels, Four Points Vancouver Airport Hotel had to rely on industry experts to  help make for a smooth transition from Coast to Four Points. Four Points chose to partner with Precise ParkLink to ensure available parking for its guests and visitors, while at the same time generate parking revenue from motorists attending nearby venues.

The Result
As of April 30, 2018, Four Points Vancouver Airport Hotel chose to implement Precise ParkLink’s DG7 Pay-by-License Plate parking meters and Whoosh! Pay-by-Phone parking application. The combined power of the two has helped to ensure hotel guests have easy access to available parking, while generating additional parking revenue for the hotel.

Precise ParkLink is proud to be parking partners with Four Points by Sheraton Vancouver Airport.

Top 10 Electric Vehicle Charging Facts Property Owners Should Know

Electric Vehicle charging stations are one of the hottest topics in property management and parking today. With the steady growth of electric vehicle (EV) drivers in Canada, EV charging stations are no longer considered a frivolous expense, but instead a major asset and revenue generator for property owners. Canadian businesses looking to install EV charging stations should be aware of these top 10 facts: 

ElectricVehicleCharging_Header brand ppl.jpg
  1. Number of EV Drivers Skyrockets
    Over the past decade, EV purchases have steadily increased. In 2017, the number of EV purchases made in Ontario more than doubled, since the year before giving rise to the demand for EV charging stations.
     
  2. Growing Commitment to EV Output
    Numerous car manufacturers are investing in the future of electric vehicles. The majority of car manufacturers have included EV models in their future specs and have begun the manufacturing process and/or release of these models. Volvo, for instance, has set its sights on releasing only EV or hybrid cars by 2019, making it the first car company to stop selling vehicles that rely on diesel and gas.

    Similarly, Mercedes-Benz plans to release electric versions of all its vehicle models by 2022—and, starting in 2021, BMW models will be built on modular platforms capable of accommodating fully electric and plug-in hybrid.
     
  3. Provincial Incentives
    On January 16, 2018, the Ontario government released the Workplace Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Program (WEVCIP). Designed to encourage more people to buy EVs by reducing the anxiety they have about where to charge while at work, the program allows building owners and managers to install Level 2 EV stations for their employees, tenants, or visitors, while receiving up to 80% reimbursement (up to a maximum of $7,500 per charging space) from the government. The WEVCIP also lessens the financial burdens owners and managers face with the installation of these EV charging stations.
     
  4. Put Your Business on The Map
    When businesses install EV charging stations, they become a part of a public, national network. Using their mobile devices, EV drivers can locate available stations. Become an early adopter and you’ll gain loyal EV drivers—a sure way to increase your parking revenue.
     
  5. Additional Revenue Stream
    The Ontario government has recently allowed for EV charging stations owners to charge a user fee to EV drivers looking to charge their vehicle. This will help cover the cost of installing an EV charging station that isn’t covered by the WEVCIP. In the long run, this user fee can be an additional source of parking revenue for your organization.
     
  6. Sustainability & LEED Points
    Installing an EV charging station can earn your business LEED points with Canada’s Green Building Council—helping you stand out from the competition, improve your amenity infrastructure, meet your sustainability goals, and earn incremental revenue.
     
  7. Attract and Retain Business
    Offering EV charging stations is a great way to attract and retain shoppers, visitors, tenants, and employees.  
     
  8. Flexibility and Control
    Cloud-based solutions give businesses the flexibility to set fees (like time-of-day pricing) for charging, and seamlessly automate payment processing, reporting, and user analytics.
     
  9. Cost-Savings for EV Installs During New Construction  
    Studies show that installing EV chargers during new construction rather than as retrofits can save businesses anywhere from $1,550 to $4,000 per spot.
     
  10. Supporting EV Space Turnover
    Parking space turnover has been a top-of-mind concern for property owners looking to install EV stations. Property managers can use EV charging web portals that enable them to control access to the stations and set pricing policies, such as demand pricing change to encourage turnover.

Precise ParkLink is a proud distributor of ChargePoint EV charging stations. Our ability to supply, plan for, install, and support EV charging stations is unbeatable within the Canadian parking market.

Sandman Vancouver Airport Hotel Chooses Their Perfect Match For Parking

sandman signature vancouver airport.jpg

A YVR Hotel
The Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport Hotel & Resort provides the perfect combination of location, style, and elegance. It’s located just minutes from the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), and boasts complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport, where visitors can enjoy the hotel restaurants and amenities.

Sandman Hotels, a subset of Northland Properties, have been parking partners with Precise ParkLink for over 10 years. We currently manage the Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Centre and numerous other Northland Properties locations. 

Challenges and Goals
The Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport Hotel & Resort was seeking a parking solution that would deter motorists from taking advantage of its available parking. The goal was to increase both parking revenue and the functionality of the parking equipment, as well as significantly reduce the frequency of unauthorized parked vehicles.

The Result
As of June 1, 2018, the Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport Hotel & Resort decided to partner with Precise ParkLink to help overcome its parking challenges and increase its parking revenue. To do so, the hotel decided to manage its 862 parking stalls with our DG7 Pay-by-License Plate parking meters.  It also opted to install extensive parking signage, implement staff and long-term visitor monthly parking permits, and our Whoosh! Pay-by-Phone parking application.

Sandman Signature Kamloops Hotel Partners With Precise ParkLink

sandman-signature-kamloops-hotel.png

In the Heart of Kamloops
Facing both Riverside Park and the Thompson River, Sandman Signature Kamloops Hotel is situated directly across the street from Sandman Centre, home of the Kamloops Blazers. This six-storey hotel has been designed with the expressed purpose of providing guests a relaxed, comfortable, and elegant stay.

Challenges and Goals
With intelligent design and hospitality at the forefront, the Sandman Signature Kamloops Hotel started its parking venture off on the right foot. Its goal is to ensure available parking for both guests and visitors, while simultaneously generate parking revenue from motorists attending nearby venues. The hotel is located in the heart Kamloops, and is surrounded by restaurants, the Sandman Centre, and attractions like Riverside Park and the Kamloops Museum & Archives. This makes parking at the hotel a hot commodity that requires efficient management.

The Result
Sandman Signature Kamloops Hotel will deploy its paid parking system on July 1, 2018. They chose to install Precise ParkLink’s DG7 Pay-by-License Plate parking meters and our Whoosh! Pay-by-Phone parking application.

Harrison Hot Springs: A Seasonal Parking Success

Harrison Hot Springs.jpg

Successful Paid Parking Pilot
In 2016, the Village of Harrison Hot Springs chose to experiment with the implementation of a paid parking system during its busy summer months. The Village chose Precise ParkLink, an industry expert, to lead the pilot project with hopes that a paid parking system would be given a fair shot within the tight-knit community.

Harrison Hot Springs and the surrounding area offer great hiking, biking, golfing, fishing and other water activities, heritage sites, family friendly attractions, and more.  Sandy beaches hug the coast of Harrison Lake – the largest body of fresh water in Southwestern B.C.

Challenges and Goals
During the summer months, Harrison Hot Springs is a tourist hotspot.  The limited beachside parking available to residents and tourists, as well as the numerous outdoor activities and heritage sites makes the village an ideal location for parking services during the summer season. However, when it came to parking, Harrison Hot Springs faces the challenge of peak versus low seasons, and of course, the worry of implementing the village’s first-ever paid parking system.

The Result
With Precise ParkLink’s help, the village’s paid parking trial was a success. To date, Harrison Hot Springs enforces paid parking only during the summer months and has partnered with Precise ParkLink for the last three years. Precise ParkLink has been working with Harrison Hot Springs to develop a parking program that works well for their B.C. community, and has introduced effective initiatives, such as Parking Ambassadors, who welcome and assist motorists.

Precise ParkLink is proud to be parking partners with The Village of Harrison Hot Springs.
