Over the past six months, our dev team has been hard at work creating an awesome new feature on Parkable. By talking to our clients, we realised that visitor parking is often, well, a bit of a mess - visitors aren’t sure where to go, staff members park in visitor spots, and out-dated booking systems are a huge headache for administrators.
That’s why we developed a visitor parking solution - to make visitor parking simple and transparent for both guests and admin.
Visitors to businesses and organisations often have poor parking experiences. It’s unclear where to go, and uncertain whether a parking spot will be available. That leads to confusion and frustration before visitors have even entered the main building, as well as late starts to meetings. Long-term, these accumulated bad experiences can create a poor perception of your brand and culture.
For businesses and staff, traditional visitor parking is also difficult to organise and manage. It’s hard to keep track of who’s parking and for how long, and out-dated booking systems waste time. Because it’s hard (perhaps even impossible) to keep track of who’s parking where, staff are free to abuse the visitor parking spaces, leaving nowhere for your guests to park. All too often, these difficulties also lead to inefficient use of valuable space.
Luckily, Parkable’s visitor parking is simple and transparent for both staff and visitors.
