A parking management system that offers shared parking at work is an excellent way to optimise existing parking spots. Not only does it resolve workplace parking issues, but it also improves motivation and employee satisfaction.
Crucially, sharing allocated parks through the Parkable app means that four times as many colleagues can access a parking space!
Here's how sharing parking spaces at work benefits everyone.
If your office has its car parks allocated to specific employees, park sharing between staff is a simple and effective way of dispersing staff perks and creating a fairer workplace.
In fact, we did some data analysis and found that through Parkable’s park sharing, allocated parking spots went from being used by just one employee at any time to being used by between two and four different members of staff every month.
That means that a company with 100 parking spots can go from allowing just 100 staff to park onsite to allowing between 200 and 400 staff to use the car park! By sharing a major perk far more widely, companies are telling their staff a clear message: we want everyone to benefit.
There’s no denying that finding a parking space can be stressful. It can be frustrating for staff when no parking spot is in sight, and they must drive along the same street twice or thrice before finding a spot. This costs them time, fuel, and money.
However, work parking doesn’t have to be such an ordeal. Through the Parkable app, you can easily identify where the available parking spaces are, and shared parking can be made possible. If a parking place is unoccupied on a specific day because the parking spot owner is at home, another employee may use that spot in their absence.
Shared parking improves employee productivity and satisfaction because fewer workers are late due to parking struggles, and the pressure to find a parking spot near the office is gone.

Solving workplace parking problems is vital to an effective facility management program, but it's also a complicated proposition. Managing parking lots at scale will quickly become more complex than you may have bargained for.
