For KPMG, time waste on car park administration and enforcement was a long-acknowledged problem. To monitor their car parks, KPMG staff left their business cards on the car dashboard, and each morning someone checked these business cards to make sure that only eligible staff were parked. The business cards were routinely updated to keep the system secure, and checking over 100 bays took around 30 minutes each day.
As well as an old fashioned enforcement process, KPMG felt that their staff parking experience could be improved. The company has 108 parking bays and 320 staff entitled to use the car park, a common predicament for many large businesses. They had a ‘first come first served’ system, which provided no way for staff to know in advance whether or not the car park was full. It also encouraged staff to arrive at work earlier than necessary in order to secure a bay, reducing time that could be spent with family, resting, or working toward personal goals. A ‘first come first served’ system can also unfairly disadvantage particular members of staff, such as working parents, who may not have the option of coming to work early.
Parkable's system monitors daily parking activity remotely and provides infringement reports, which notify KPMG when people from outside the organisation are parking in the space. By using these features, KPMG has eliminated the need for daily business card checks, and will save 125 or more hours of administration time per year.
Reports which provide statistics on car park usage will also support KPMG in achieving their aims to increase carpooling and become carbon neutral by 2030. In terms of improving staff experiences and work culture, Parkable allows KPMG staff to reserve a bay in advance, removing the pressure to arrive early to work. This also removes unfair advantages given to those who can come in early to work.
