Q&A Sessions with Bart Kramer
Welcome to our Q&A sessions with Bart Kramer! Bart is not just our CFO but our game show host (who always keeps us on our toes & smiling) and one of our fearless leaders. ParqEx would not be where it is today without him. That being said, let’s ask Bart some questions!
1) How is ParqEx a platform for change in the real estate industry?
ParqEx is a platform that enables the sharing economy in the real estate industry. ParqEx offers a solution to the parking crunch that plagues many urban areas by connecting private parking space owners with individuals looking for parking. This platform offers a way to monetize underutilized parking spaces while providing a valuable community service. This sharing model can potentially disrupt the traditional real estate industry by providing more efficient and cost-practical solutions to the parking problem.
2) What trends do you see in the property technology industry, and how is ParqEx responding?
The property technology industry is rapidly evolving. ParqEx is staying ahead of the curve by embracing emerging trends such as smart parking technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. ParqEx also adapts to changing consumer preferences by offering a more flexible and community-driven approach to parking solutions. By continuing to innovate and stay at the forefront of technology trends, ParqEx will remain competitive and relevant in the property technology industry.
3) Why is it critical for sales, customer service, and marketing to work together cohesively?
Sales, customer service, and marketing are all critical functions in any organization, and they must work together cohesively to achieve the company’s objectives. For example, sales teams generate revenue, marketing teams create brand awareness and generate leads, and customer service teams provide support and ensure customer satisfaction. By aligning these functions and working towards a common goal, the company creates a seamless and positive customer experience, increasing sales and customer loyalty.
4) What’s a common objection you’ve received when dealing with various real estate entities?
A common objection that ParqEx has faced when dealing with various real estate industries is related to the perceived inconvenience and complexity of listing and renting out parking spaces. Property owners sometimes feel that the effort required to list and manage their parking space on ParqEx outweighs the benefits of earning supplemental income. In response to this objection, ParqEx emphasizes its platform’s simplicity and ease of use and highlights the potential financial benefits of listing unused parking spaces. In addition, ParqEx provides clear and concise instructions on the listing process and offers support and guidance throughout the process; ParqEx helps alleviate concerns and encourages more property owners to join its platform.
5) How do you organize your team and keep them motivated?
Effective team organization and motivation are key to the success of any organization. ParqEx achieves this by setting clear goals and expectations for the team, providing regular feedback and recognition, and creating a positive and supportive work culture. In addition, by promoting a sense of purpose and community within the team, ParqEx ensures that its employees are motivated, engaged, and working towards a common goal.
6) If you could jump into a time machine, what would you tell yourself at the beginning of your career here at ParqEx?
If I could jump into a time machine and go back to the beginning of my career at ParqEx, I would tell myself: Be prepared for a challenging, exhilarating, and rewarding ride with the ParqEx Team!
