The majority of parking patrons at an office building are employees or contract parkers. How difficult can this be to manage? Companies often negotiate parking leases which include specific trigger dates whereby rate increases are applied to reserved spaces for the executives. Again, how difficult can this be?
Property management staff for the parking facility may be promoted, transferred or replaced. No longer is the individual who negotiated the lease available to put the policies in motion. These arrangements can require an extraordinary amount of manual oversight as each new manager must review all the leases to make sure nothing has fallen through the cracks. With the right systems in place the nuances of the agreements are not lost. Amano McGann’s lease rate management allows for the activation dates of new contract fees to be assigned to the corporate account years in advance and disseminated down to all active employees.
Companies are assigned parking spaces in specific zones. These spaces are worth money and you cannot afford to lose any to nesting equipment. The Enforcement module of the M3 system allows your staff to program sections where the employees can park. If they park outside of that area, management will be notified and the situation can be addressed.
Certain tenants may have a fair amount of visitors who only remain on site for a short period of time. These tenants often request that parking spaces be reserved near their office entrance so their clients do not have to fight for spaces or drive all the way to the roof to park. These transient parkers can generate a substantial amount of revenue due to the quick turnover, but how do you enforce this? The M3 system allows for duration of stay parameters to be programmed for specific areas. If an individual over stays the programmed time, an alarm is created and staff can respond.
Every tenant has their own preferred method for handling visitor parking. Some want to pay for all of their visitor’s parking; others only want to pay for time spent in their office. How do you provide this much flexibility in the validation program? Amano McGann’s online validation system is the answer. This solution allows for each company to provide a unique login credential which allows them to either generate a barcode validation coupon or apply a desired discount to the parking ticket.
Amano McGann’s modular design allows for the implementation of any mixture of functionality and flexibility to provide the solution for your center. Popular modules for the office sector are:
