In today’s fast-paced world, rapid urbanization contributes to the ever-increasing parking management challenge each city faces. Towns and cities face constant hardships from parking management, such as increased traffic congestion, revenue loss, and an overall lack of parking operations. Luckily, as technology does, technological advancements have created a solution ready to solve these challenges via systems commonly known as “Parking Access Revenue Control Systems” (PARCS). In this blog, we will cover the main pain points that PARCS can alleviate for the parking industry. Furthermore, this article also highlights how a Parking Access Revenue Control Systems” (PARCS) can transform how we manage parking spaces driving efficiency, reducing operating expenses, and generating revenue.
Improved Parking Efficiency
One of the main advantages of parking access revenue control systems (PARCS) is the capacity to facilitate all parking operations, which undoubtedly enhances the overall efficiency of the parking facility. PARCS utilizes automated entry and exit systems via access control or license plate recognition technologies, thus eliminating any need for parking personnel to aid on-site. All transactions are handled via license plate, an app, or kiosks, thus further cutting costs of any needed staff. Automatic entry and exit and more accessible payment options lead to reduced waiting times, shorter lines, and prompter turnover of vehicles, creating a more streamlined parking experience, cutting costs, and increasing revenue.
Increased Revenue Generation
As already alluded, deploying PARCS can significantly generate revenue for parking facilities and property owners. Through automating payment options, PARCS ensure that all vehicles are charged accurately and promptly for their stay. As payment collection methods constantly evolve, PARCS allows for various payment options such as credit cards, parking mobile apps, or even prepaid cards at some parking facilities. The ease and overall choice of payment for customers help facilitate excellent customer service and encourage repeat business.
Instantaneous Insights & Reporting
As PARCS is top-of-the-line, it has advanced tracking and reporting capabilities. It provides real-time insights into all vehicles coming and going from the property, overall parking lot occupancy, revenue management, a log of all enforcement actions, and many other real-time insights. Property managers and owners can access their dashboards on their desktops, of course, but more importantly, on the go. All reporting and analytics are easily accessible on mobile phones, thus allowing management and ownership to have complete control of their property at all times of the day.
Improved Real-Time Parking Enforcement
Security is always top of mind for any property owner or manager. Parking lot security, more specifically, tends to keep management up at night—making it vital to ensure and prioritize the safety of both vehicles and customers at all times of the day in the facility. PARCS takes security seriously and incorporates monitoring systems, enforcement software, mobile license plate recognition technology, and physical gates and garage doors to prevent unauthorized access and act as solid crime deterrents. With enforcement software operating at full speed on the property, unauthorized vehicles are flagged immediately, prompting instantaneous ticketing, booting, or towing of vehicles if necessary.
Enhanced Customer Experience
Customer experience is always the name of the game, even regarding parking facilities. With PARCS on-site, the overall customer experience is significantly enhanced. With prompter entry and exits via access control, license plate recognition cameras, convenient in-app payment options (or kiosks on-site), and real-time parking space availability updates for drivers seeking parking, customers experience far less frustration than usual and make the most of technologically suitable solution for the parking facility. As every driver has had a hard time with parking over their driving career, an easy, straightforward parking experience will likely encourage repeat customers and referrals.
Eco-Friendly Parking Solutions

With increasing fears, PARCS does its part in contributing to lessening its environmental impact regarding parking management. Due to access control and license plate recognition cameras and the overall enhancement of parking operations, there is far less congestion, leading to less vehicle emissions. To take it one step further, paperless ticketing and in-app payment options reduce waste and lessen the overall parking operations’ environmental impact.
