E-Parking pioneer ParkWhiz partners with TIBA Parking Systems
ParkWhiz Partnership Offers Self Scan Validation Systems for Parking Facility Operators
CHICAGO, May 20, 2013 – ParkWhiz, the largest and fastest growing online parking company in the U.S., today announced its partnership with TIBA Parking Systems. Now parking facility operators can offer consumers using ParkWhiz.com the option to accept pre-paid parking reservations via TIBA's self scan validation units. Reservations are monitored in real-time through TMS – a smartpark management software that is affordable, flexible and secure. The software includes a variety of modules that allow parking facility operators to process credit cards, manage monthly parkers and employees, print bar-coded validations quickly, control facilities and more.
"TIBA is pleased to add ParkWhiz to its roster of strategic partners, says Levi Rinkoff," VP of Business Development & Strategies of TIBA. "Connecting ParkWhiz with our pre-paid solutions benefits consumers, operators and asset owners. We look forward to rolling this out nationwide."
Currently, less than 35 percent of Chicago locations accept mobile passes, accounting for 62 percent of revenue, which is about three times more revenue per location than facilities with non-mobile pass validation. With the implementation of TIBA's pre-paid reservation module in more parking facilities, owners and operators will benefit from increased revenue, superior customer experience and streamlined control solutions.
"We are excited to partner with TIBA as they provide best-in-class validation solutions that benefit both parking facility owners and consumers," said Dean Bravos, SVP of Sales and Partnerships of ParkWhiz. "We are thrilled to offer a turn-key solution for TIBA Parking Systems. Our partnering locations are aggressively implementing these dynamic systems, which, in turn, will help drive revenue to their locations. With more consumers incorporating mobile devices in their daily transactions, it only makes sense to offer this convenience when parking."
More than 1 million people have used ParkWhiz's web and mobile apps, which allows users to book the perfect daily, monthly and event parking spot by comparing price, location and amenities. ParkWhiz can now take care of your parking needs wherever you go. The company works with over 2,000 parking locations nationwide and gives customers access to the world's largest online parking inventory with over 3 million parking spaces.
