Have you ever driven out to a commercial area before and found it difficult to get somewhere to park? If you have, then you’ve been in the same situation as millions of other people before. Unfortunately, this problem of parking management may not be solved overnight, especially in areas with high traffic density and little to no provision for parking.
Parking management becomes increasingly difficult with the increase of vehicles contending for limited parking space at a time (supply-demand of parking areas).
Let’s now take a look at some of the problems that are faced when it comes to the management of parking lots before proffering solutions to them.
Problems of Parking Management Control
- Performing manual checks
Managers of parking areas usually have to perform manual checks which involve checking handwritten tickets, the status, and details of a vehicle. The problem with these manual checks is that they are prone to entry errors.
2. Outdated method of record-keeping
The use of paper records makes it hard to find a single piece of information from a huge volume of unsorted information. Having a lot of paperwork could mean that you have to spend a lot of unnecessary hours searching for information that you need.
3. Time wasting
Traditional parking management requires customers to wait for a relatively long period to gain entry and exit the parking lot. This will inevitably lead to an unsatisfactory experience for the customers and may lead to them seeking better alternatives.
