The most important thing to consider when investing in a parking solution is who you’re choosing to partner with. Whether you are investing in basic parking equipment or the whole shebang with parking operations and premium technology, you’ll need to choose a parking organization that you can rely on.
How do you make sure you are partnering with the right organization? Here are a few things to consider…
Product Reliability…of Course
The easiest way to confirm whether or not a certain type of parking equipment is reliable is by referring to the parking equipment nearby industry leaders use. Get in touch with them. Ask them how their parking equipment performs day-to-day.
Their Ability to Integrate Technology
Save yourself stress by partnering with a parking company that has research and development capabilities. There will come a time when you need to integrate your parking software with a third-party software, or you might just want to upgrade your payment methods.
Partnering with a parking organization that can do the work for you, on a system they know will save you stress and money in the long run.
Are They Level-1 PCI Compliant?
Level-1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance is a bank standard security standard used to process credit card transactions. Ensuring your parking system meets level-1 PCI compliance is necessary to protect against fraud and any liability associated with fraud.
Their Ability to Support and Maintain Your System
It’s essential to partner with a parking organization that has the internal resources and capacity to service and maintain your parking equipment. A real-time and back-end central management system to detect maintenance or technical issues is key, and having the man-power to attend to such needs immediately is a necessary attribute for a profitable parking system.
You Need a Turnkey Solution
Being turnkey means that the company provides all products and services related to parking in-house, having the ability to set costs, respond immediately, and innovate solutions to meet your needs. Choose one provider for your parking equipment, operations, signage, Pay-by-Phone app, and more—you’ll count your lucky stars later as you save vastly on overall cost, time and quality.
