APCOA, one of the main parking operators in Europe managing 1.3 million parking spaces and present in over 12 countries, inaugurated a new car park in Jette (Belgium)on April 15, 2018. The parking facility, which is located in a central shopping area, will solve the lack of parking areas in the city centre and it is expected to boost the businesses near Queen Astrid Square.
This car park manages its 199 subterranean parking bays with iPark guidance system in order to optimise the occupancy and the traffic inside the facility. This functionality is possible due to the installation of 199 Bilogy sensors, one for each parking bay, providing detection and indication together in one device through a LED indicator. These devices are part of the guidance, counting and ‘Find Your Car’ system that optimises traffic in car parks increasing user’s satisfaction giving them the information that they need when they need it. This has also an impact on the parking operator because it increases customer’s loyalty and reduces operational and maintenance costs through an efficient management of traffic and occupation.
