Live Webinar: Smart Parking: Improving Revenue Efficiency at Hospitals & Universities
Adoption of smart parking technology appears to still be at an early stage. For a long time, parking has been an arms-length, cash-only business with very little emphasis on using technology to improve operational efficiency or customer service. Recently though, growth in smart parking solutions has enhanced productivity and service operations, lowered operating costs and built value for customers to drive revenue and facility values. Connect with parking professionals as they explore how an investment in improving parking at universities and hospitals can have a profound impact on revenue, costs and levels of service provided to its students, faculty, patients and visitors. 2:00 p.m. EDT – 3:00 p.m. EDT.
