Higher learning institution campuses can be as complex as the classes that take place on their campus. Many of the locations are a mix of education, healthcare, event venues, business and retail. Each of these segments creates unique challenges on their own. When they are combined into one campus, only a comprehensive parking management system can deliver all the flexibility and functionality required.
From the campus that is imbedded in an urban setting to the solitary campus, finding your way to parking facilities with spaces available is quite often a challenge. Providing wayfinding solutions around the campus and in the parking facility itself can alter the experience of potential students, their families, highly sought after professors, and alumni boosters.
Student IDs are no longer just an ID. They are the university debit card with funds for books, meals and even parking. Real-time data exchange between the existing financial system and the Amano McGann management system is essential so that funds can be distributed from the card holder’s account to the parking department revenues. This ensures the funds will be received for services rendered.

The additional traffic, cash handling issues, duplication of parking passes, ticket agency passes, booster club passes, tailgating passes, media credentials and a whole host of other operational issues can occur due to a couple hundred thousand visitors converging on your campus. The Amano McGann Event System provides all the tools necessary to make this day a success all the way around.
