TIBA Parking, in conjunction with Associated Time and Winpark, recently performed a smooth transition of 15 lanes of revenue control equipment at Memorial Hermann Health System in less than 72 hours.
Teams from Associated Time and TIBA Parking worked around the clock to reconfigure the lot lane by lane, tearing down old equipment, seven cashier booths, and activating TIBA’s world-class pay on foot machines, and entry, exit, and access only lane equipment. The installation began at 7:00 pm on Friday and all lanes were operational with gates down by 7:00 am that Monday, giving a total installation time of 72 hours.
“During the sales process it was made clear that Memorial Hermann and Winpark wanted to implement the latest technology and have it deployed quickly and accurately,” said Chris Archer, President of Associated Time.
“Both the TIBA and Associated Time teams did an excellent job quickly delivering TIBA’s world-class products for Memorial Hermann,” said John Whiteman, Executive Vice President of Sales for TIBA North & South America. “In addition to the 15 lanes of equipment, our teams were able to remove seven cashier booths, and later add license plate recognition along with valet solutions to provide a unique wholistic solution to meet the quick installation needs of this project.”
After two pay on foot machines and all lanes went live with revenue equipment, the license plate recognition and valet solutions were installed. By strategically moving the location of the two pay on foots, Memorial Hermann received a 20% increase in usage of POF’s over pay in lane traffic.
TIB@Pay, TIBA’s payment application for handling traditional bank card payments, also sped up individual transaction times to average 3-5 seconds allowing speedy and simple egress.
"With the implementation of TIBA with License Plate Recognition technology and an install that took less than 72 hours, Associated Time met the specific needs of our valued partners,” added Archer. "We look forward to a continued partnership with both Memorial Hermann as well as Winpark, both world-class organizations.”
Winpark responded to the installation by stating, “the installation was seamless from start to finish with the Associated Time and TIBA Parking Systems teams being overly accommodating. We are impressed with the quick delivery time and attention to detail.”
