LAZ Parking Hospitality Division names Automated Valet Parking Manager its preferred provider

Atlanta, GA. August 2008 -- After intense testing, LAZ Parking has designated Automated Valet's AVPM as its preferred parking management system for the LAZ Parking Hospitality Division.
LAZ has been using AVPM at two locations for an entire year and it has surpassed all expectations.
LAZ Parking Principal/Executive Vice President Robert DeBurro says that AVPM gives his company an advantage over the competition. Not only is it easy to use and train, it offers award-winning technology that has changed his business for the better.
Stability of the platform and timeliness of the service are most important in my judgment. AVPM offers a stable, easy-to-learn system that is scalable from small to large facilities and Automated Valet services it very well. Better yet, they constantly make improvements to our reporting and offers the upgrades as part of the package, DeBurro says. AVPM is easy to learn from the valet up through the executive ranks and it was clearly designed by someone who knows the business.
One of the AVPM features DeBurro relies on the most is AVPM Enterprise. His position requires him to travel frequently; having remote access for up to 90 different reports from all his various locations is not only convenient, but it gives him a jump on the competition. I love AVPM Enterprise. I am able to monitor my locations and pull reports, even on the road, and it allows me to be superior of the competitors since I can track revenue and performance anywhere in the world.
Trade Show.pngLAZ is also benefiting from AVPM's biometric technology and VIN decoding recognition functions - both features maximize revenue control. Using AVPM's biometric interface, employees clock in and out of work using their fingerprints. The feature is nearly impossible to defraud. The VIN decoding feature, part of AVPM's patent pending Virtual Data Entry System, scans cars and records make, model and year information. This protects the company from fraudulent claims by processing each car thoroughly and reporting previous damage and helps users track cars and recognize frequent customers.
DeBurro says AVPM is exceptional and he would recommend installation to other valet operations.
The system handles validations, over night charge integration, and a ticket inventory system. We have 100% revenue control and 100% uptime, he says. We find it easy to use and very reliable. Its user friendly and the support has been excellent.
Automated Valet CEO and founder Ken Gulec says his company is committed to meeting the needs of clients like LAZ Parking.
We have a superior product and we back it up with superior service. It is very pleasing to know we have delivered what we promised, he says.
LAZ has been in business for 27 years. Its headquarters are in Hartford, CT and it has offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. The company manages more than 350,000 parking spaces in 16 different states and DC and reports revenues of $200 million a year. Besides its valet locations, LAZ operates parking for offices, hotels, hospitals and medical complexes, garages, surface lots, events, and universities.
