Municipalities are striving to provide more customer services, amenities and conveniences to citizens and visitors in their downtown areas. Governments have implemented sophisticated 311/911 call systems, mobile applications, and integrated communication systems for emergency response agencies. Citizens expect access to real-time information. How do municipalities do all this when their budgets are being slashed and even maintaining existing services is becoming increasingly difficult? Efficiency!
Efficiency is not only for the governments themselves. Everyone is striving for more efficient methods including the patrons of the municipal parking facilities, lots and spaces. Navigating around large cities can place some drivers outside of their comfort zone, especially those that are unfamiliar with the area. Cities can assist drivers by directing them to garages with available spaces thus eliminating extra driving, and reducing congestion and emissions. Amano’s M3 Parking Guidance System offers the ability to provide space availability data before entering facilities and directs visitors to parking spaces 50% faster, allowing for a stress free parking experience.
Easily assign designated parking for city employees and track parked fleet vehicles with M3’s Enforcement module. The system tracks the vehicles, monitors parking zones and notifies supervisors if they are parking outside of the designated areas.
Off-Street and On-Street revenue control equipment systems are largely separate technologies with unique back-office systems and independent reporting. Municipalities are also looking at ways to refresh older parking assets with new technology that provides modern conveniences such as credit card payment, pay by phone and receipts. Integrating these revenue control systems facilitates easier revenue and asset tracking. Dashboard management tools provided by Amano McGann make tracking revenues a breeze.
