We Had Iot Parking Hardware Before the Industry Could Spell "I-O-T"

Parkonect Infographic

At our first trade show in 2012, we had a booth that said "Stop the Chaos" and we did our best to inform the parking world that mobility and connectivity was coming to parking garages and the then-current parking platforms would not be able to handle it. Many people thought we were crazy. Perhaps we were.... but we were right.

Today, it is a common place to hear references to"on demand" for everything. The reality is, parking customers are no different than any consumer. The information they need is always at their fingertips, and they have the power to purchase instantly.

Parkonect is much more than an add-on reader for presales. Our platform does everything you'd expect from a modern parking solution, including LPR, visualized analytics, ticket dispensing and more. The only unexpected thing... our affordable price.

At Parkonect, we let you compete on your own terms so you can maximize profitability, utilization and customer experience. We combine cutting-edge hardware and smart software to help operators and garage owners take full advantage of the massive shift toward real-time transacting, all while providing a revolutionary parking experience at a form factor that fits all garages. Our end-to-end system consists of customer-friendly, fully "connected" hardware in the garage, actionable revenue control and reservation software in the cloud, and integrated solutions with today's leading online parking sellers and transportation-based channel providers.

More importantly, we are mindful that we don't exactly know what's coming next. Therefore, we architected our technology to dynamically support other emerging transportation-based providers without requiring onsite reconfigurations. With Parkonect, you are not purchasing a static system. It's actually quite the opposite, as you have a solution that will grow and change with the market as it changes.

Hardware 

Full SystemsFull Systems

At a fraction of the cost of competing systems, Parkonect offers a full system solution in select markets. We combine our cutting-edge presale redemption hardware and cloud solution with a barcode-based ticket dispenser, gates, loops, pay-on-foot stations, lobby door controllers, VOIP intercoms, and more to offer unimpeachable revenue control while extending a smooth and truly innovative parking experience to your garage's customers.

Add-on IoT ReadersAdd-on IoT Readers

Parkonect’s plug-and-play universal barcode readers are powerful IoT devices that add online sales and other innovative parking technology to your indoor or outdoor facility. Deploy them as standalone solutions or alongside your legacy equipment and augment them with Bluetooth, LPR, VOIP intercoms, AVI, and PCI-compliant credit card readers to drive unparalleled revenue growth at your garage.

Our T-14 Tower is the newest member to our IoT hardware portfolio. The T-14 is a sleek modular product that can easily be equipped as a single device with a variety of hardware peripherals, including intercoms, bluetooth beacons, FOB readers and more.

Our P14 and P24 are our universal barcode reader hardware that has been deployed in 1000s of lanes through the US and Canada.

Pay-on-Foot StationsPay-on-Foot Stations

Parkonect’s pay-on-foot station (POF) was designed to stylishly fit into the decor of higher-end residential, hotel or office lobbies with its brushed silver metallic housing and custom-branded faceplate.

Our POF allows patrons to prepay for parking before they get to the exit lane. Like our in-lane equipment, the POF scans barcode based tickets, accepts validations and collects final payment in a PCI, secured manner. Once paid, customers are automatically given a configurable exit grace period, allowing them to retrieve their car and exit the parking structure with ease.

The POF can be augmented with VOIP intercoms, is simple to maintain and easy to install.

Door ControllersDoor Controllers

Leverage Parkonect to control pedestrian access at any secured area in your building on all types of parkers, including tenants, transients, and online presale parkers.

Parkonect’s Door Controller provides pedestrian access control to locked vestibules, elevators, and lobbies.

Our universal barcode-based solution operates in real time and gives you the security to sell online reservations 24/7 across multiple platforms while setting and maintaining pedestrian access restrictions for different groups at different times.

Gate KitsGate Kits

Every garage is different. Where a small form factor is absolutely essential, Parkonect provides the perfect solution for monthly and presale parker access control: our affordable gate kits.

Parkonect’s gate kits are an ideal solution for any parking garage with overhead doors, lane constraints, or a non-traditional configuration, and instantly turns them into fully integrated, totally controlled monthly parking and online selling facilities.

Software

Cloud-Based DashboardCloud-Based Dashboard

One powerful dashboard, tons of real-time data, and the ability to control transactions from wherever you are – without on-site labor. Our real-time counts and reports are deeply integrated with your in-garage hardware and provide 360-degree operational control from a simple yet powerful web portal.

There are no excuses for open tickets or unknown gate vends. Parkonect’s cloud-based dashboard and reporting tells you everything that is happening in the garage as it happens.

AnalyticsAnalytics

Tired of spreadsheets? We show you what pivot tables can't. Assess and compare revenue by type, cross-vendor sales, monthly occupancy, parking utilization, and customer behavior from one easy-to-use, feature-rich dashboard.

Parkonect's new analytics engine puts real parking intelligence at your fingertips. 

LPRLicense Plate Recognition

Shouldn't LPR be truly universal? Welcome to Parkonect's cloud LPR.

With Parkonect, you can extend the seamless experience of LPR to monthly, presale and hotel parkers. Better yet, our LPR system includes express exiting for transient parkers that have paid at a pay-on-foot station, have fully validated tickets, or are exiting within the garage's grace period.

Hotel ParkingHotel Self-Parking

Either through a direct integration to a hotel's management system or directly from our powerful hotel self-parking portal, Parkonect instantly lets you offer in and out parking at your garage to guests of nearby hotels.

Hotel Portal

With just a few clicks on our custom-branded web-portal, hotel agents easily issue unique credentials for an incomparable, yet fully controlled, parking experience at your garage.

Opera/Hotel System Integration

Parkonect has made integrating with your parking system to the hotel management system easy, including our integration with Oracle's Hospitality OPERA system.

Monthly Access ControlMonthly Access Control

We offer every type of monthly access control: barcode, FOB, long-range RFID (AVI), LPR and more. But, we prefer barcode.

Our barcode based monthly solution features QR codes that allow for immediate distribution of passes by email. We even have GPS enabled iPhone/Android monthly passes that instantly appear on the parker’s cell phone when they enter the drive lane. Branded to your company or building, our barcode-based custom passes aren't just a useful tool, they're an attractive amenity that add value to every parking experience and promote your brand. Eliminate the need for expensive fobs that can be lost or stolen and instead, use a our barcode based monthly credential system that's managed in the cloud, where issuance and deactivation is a breeze and you never have a costly key-tag or hard pass to recover.

Reservation SystemReservation System

Parkonect’s free, private-label reservation system lets you sell what you want, when you want, without incurring any commissions or transaction fees. Our reservation system is endlessly customizable and can easily be added to a facility's existing website or used on a standalone basis.

Parkonect offers a free reservation engine that can be built around your brand. Our reservation system lets you sell event parking, custom specials, hourly parking, multi-day parking, in-and-out parking, and more for nearby retailers, businesses, residents, hotels and visitors.

Valet TrackerValet Tracker

Parkonect's Valet Tracker gives you total access control over valets while simultaneously tracking every vend and duration of stay in real time.

Is your facility being used by third-party valets? Instead of letting valets come and go with FOBs or using validations that can’t truly be tied to a vehicle’s entry time, Parkonect’s Valet Tracker gives you 100% visibility over each valet parking transaction – so you can maximize revenue while maintaining the highest level of control over your garage.

Lot EnforcementLot Enforcement

Parkonect’s enforcement web-app unleashes the potential of third-party presales at your surface lot while maintaining simplicity and sanity for your enforcers.

Flat lot enforcement should be simple: either a car has paid to be there or it hasn’t. Our enforcement web app does just that by consolidating all presale activity to our simple-to-use and appropriately named website DoITow.com (Do I Tow).
