Automated Valet installs operating system at two Chicago garages

Chicago, IL. June 2009 Next Parking, LLC has selected Automated Valet to install its operating system, AVPM, at two Chicago-area garages. Nexts Principal Robert Caplin conducted extensive research to find the best system for his facilities and found AVPM outstripped all the competition.
Technology and Automated Valets reputation for excellent customer service were two major factors that influenced Caplins decision.
I would recommend AVPM to most valet operations, Caplin says. We are very pleased that Automated Valet was able to customize their system at no extra cost. My reports give me the information I need, the system has a very successful up time, and training was intuitive and easy.

Next Principals own and manage a portfolio of parking assets valued at over $175 million. Caplin mentions that modernization of their facilities is a top priority, and only the most current technology would do the job.
Now that it is installed we are experiencing first hand the way it safeguards revenue and helps us provide great customer service, Caplin says.

Valets have Bluetooth scanning units that decode VIN numbers, make, model, color and location of the vehicle. The scanning procedure also recognizes VIP customers, coupons, validations and customers special requests. This automation provides 100 percent revenue control and eliminates hundreds of man hours.
Automated Valet Founder and CEO Ken Gulec says Next Parking, LLC is another example his companys innovation and success. Our technology combined with their facilities and high standards is unbeatable. We are very satisfied with the outcome of these installations, he says.
