74% of transport CO2 emissions come from road vehicles. So, if more vehicles are on the road, the emission will be greater.
Annually, people spend 17 hours looking for a spot to park their vehicle. During these hours, they are adding up their vehicle’s contribution in global emissions only because they can’t find a place to park.
With the use of innovative technology, however, they can take control over it by lessening the time they roam around the places looking for parking.
The system lets the users know a free spot where they can directly come and park, without having to look for the parking spot here and there.
This reduces their time on the road. As a result, the pollution can be controlled.
4. Unclear parking regulations
Parking regulations can be unclear, particularly in parking garages, where signs may be difficult to read or may not be visible to all customers.
This leads to confusion among motorists and complicates the payment process.
By using parking management software, businesses can ensure their parking regulations are clearly communicated to customers through their mobile apps.
Customers can view the parking rates, the operating hours, and any applicable discounts before beginning their trips, which helps them avoid confusion and uncertainty.
Unclear parking regulations can also lead to customers receiving parking citations. By emphasising the most important rules in the app, such as the hours during which parking is allowed, managers can help reduce the likelihood that customers will be ticketed.
Parking management software helps businesses protect their assets by collecting data on vehicle movement and movement patterns.
This helps identify anomalies, such as when a vehicle is driven by someone other than the owner, and leads to investigations and the discovery of fraudulent activity.
The software can also be used to send alerts and notifications when unusual activity occurs, such as if someone is trying to break into a vehicle without keys.
So, with the use of this innovative technology, businesses can respond quickly to threats and prevent them from escalating.
6. Fair pricing
A drawback of traditional parking management is standard pricing. With a traditional system in place, the motorists are charged for a span of time, such as hours or days, and not for the actual time they parked.
It’s practically difficult to track the exact time of a parked car and then make motorists pay for that. That’s why the traditional system only supports standard pricing, issuing a one hour or one day prepaid permit.
However, with the use of innovative technology, the exact parking time can be tracked and the fair pricing model can be introduced.
The motorists won’t have to pay for the time they wouldn’t use. As they would save their payment details in the system, they’ll be charged for the exact time they park the vehicle.
