IntelliPark Parking Lot Availability gives higher education a unique new way to share timely parking lot data with students, faculty and staff.
IntelliPark was developed as a cloud-based software solution that allows the parking office to communicate general parking information, parking lot ‘percent full’, maps and important parking-related alerts. Campus maps and permit information can also be included, as well as options to customize the look and brand of your portal.
The campus community as the end users visit a mobile friendly web page to quickly see which lots have space, and see any special alerts the parking office has posted. It includes the ability to sort by specific permits making it an ‘at a glance’ decision of where to park based on lot status, even for a community that may have many different lots and types of permits. Some of the benefits include easing circling traffic which can reduce emissions, less parking frustration for faculty and visitors, and cultivating an all-around smoother parking experience and positive outlook on the campus’ parking department.
IntelliPark is quick to deploy, affordable and addresses top parking concerns* on many campus environments. It can operate as a stand-alone solution, with no other software, hardware or systems in place. The lot availability data comes from a combination of manual updates, historical lot trends, crowdsourced information, and optional vehicle counting hardware or systems. While there’s no need to purchase extra hardware, doing so will only improve the accuracy and reduce the need for other data sources.
Administrators have access to useful parking data reports that provide trend analysis of parking lot utilization which can assist with appropriate staffing, or help justify other department initiatives. The ability to include map information, easily configure the colors, lots, permits, and other areas of configuring IntelliPark give control and flexibility over the user experience. It is also an effective way to communicate important parking or other campus information with alerts.
