Efficient Car Park Management
How could we increase the efficiency of the car park management model in our office buildings to optimise the use of the car park spaces and improve the user experience?
As one of Spain’s leading property development groups, Gmp currently has 4,615 parking spaces. Its tenants include both the tenants of the offices and business parks which have parking spaces linked to their leasing contracts and external users who do not work in the Gmp’s buildings.
To efficiently manage the parking spaces, the Company uses various types of parking tariffs – fixed, flexible, night, etc. – which are adjusted to the needs of different types of customers.
However, the current management model does not allow to use the car park spaces at their full capacity, given that the demand for parking spaces is very high and there is no mechanism for self-management or monitoring of their availability by the user.
To increase the level of customer satisfaction, offering them a greater control over the use of their parking spaces through a flexible and safe service
To facilitate the management of the parking spaces with a system that allows to obtain suggestions on how to improve the use of the spaces
To optimise the use of the parking spaces, maximizing the number of spaces available at every given moment
Systems and tools that allow to store and analyse the car park occupancy data in order to measure the effectiveness of their management and optimise the use of their space:
Adjust the tariffs and the allocation of places to the tenants
Control the occupation of the parking spaces to ensure compliance with the health and safety regulations for users
Diversify the use of the existing parking spaces and the car park spaces in new developments to respond to new user demands for electric vehicles, shared mobility, etc
Avoide the queues at the entrance and/or inside the car park, etc.
Multifunctional self-management solutions that can adapt to the specific needs of each client:
Identify the available parking spaces according to their occupation at any given time
Reserve places for personal or visitor use
Adjust the rent of parking spaces according to the changes in the number of tenants and/or in the number of a car registration plate
Change the type of a parking tariff (fixed, flexible, night, etc.)
Assignment of permission levels, so that Gmp can approve customer requests, if necessary.
Integration with Gmp’s current billing platform (EFlow) to avoid manual billing processes.
Connection to the car park management system implemented, for example Equinsa, among others.
Ability to adapt and overcome the network coverage limitations.
Provision of preventive measures against subleasing and other legal limitations on the use of parking spaces.
Ability to take the necessary actions in the case of an excess of vehicles of one client (to process bills, to bill at various rates, to detain the vehicle, etc.).
Ability to foresee that the number of rentable places is fewer than the number of physical places (some places are unavailable for rent because of their size, assignment to the disabled, etc.).
Maintenance and assistance service that allow to respond immediately in the case of an accident or a failure.
