Over the past 18 months, hotels have struggled with fewer guests. For hotels like Stamford Plaza Brisbane, this is partly solved by becoming an MIQ facility. But while hotel rooms are filled, the guest car parks often remain underutilised.
Lack of staff parking is a major bone of contention. Time wasted cruising for parking, and earlier starts by employees racing to win limited parking, take their toll on worker wellbeing. This is even more pressing with flexible working.
It’s always been our aim to make employee parking stress-free, easy, and fair. Our product team has been hard at work creating future booking with fairer sharing, to make stress-free, easy, fair staff parking... on a whole new level.
The Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) Brisbane campus moved offices, transitioning from 28 staff parking spots to just ten, with nine allocated to specific employees. To share parking fairly among the team, AIF implemented Parkable.
When they returned to the office, CHFA wanted fair, equitable parking. They chose to remove parking allocations and make most parking available to any employees coming into the office. To manage this transition, CHFA implemented Parkable.
Prior to Parkable, 22 car parks in Spring Hill, Brisbane were periodically leased. Now, they are occupied by paying members of the public 84% of the time. This means consistent revenue from an otherwise underutilised asset.
Using the Parkable app, humm group employees with an allocated park share their spot with colleagues when they’re away from the office. This ensures that parks won’t sit empty, and other staff can check the app and book a park in advance.
Savills' multi-tenant commercial property in Sydney had 40 unleased parks. Using Parkable, Savills’ tenants can pay to park on a casual basis, and instead of sitting vacant, the parks are now 85% occupied.
In in June 2021, Datacom lost 100 staff parking spots, leaving them in a tricky situation: they needed to accommodate the same number of employees with half the parking space. To ease the transition, they implemented Parkable.
