Parking, is the business that time (and technology) forgot. The typical parking business model was based on low paid employees, pass-through of the parking manager’s operating costs to the garage owner and uncertain cash controls. It was clerically intensive with parking patrons required to write and mail or deliver monthly checks, and clerical help manually record everything on deposit slips and records. Companies wishing to validate their customers were forever buying, peeling and sticking validations in the back of parking stubs, all of which had to be checked and accounted for. From the parking patron’s perspective, the business model required him wait in line behind other vehicles, stop waive an access card at a machine to enter. On the way out, executives late for a meeting, were often subjected to waiting behind a visitor fumbling for change or chatting with an attendant. Owners were besieged with calls from parking patrons irate about everything from “gate wait” to parking gates damaging their cars. Emerging parking technologies were fragmented. Some offered systems for transient parking, while others only served monthly operations. The industry lacked a comprehensive system for efficiently handling both visitor and monthly parking in office buildings and condominiums.
