Park Assist has won the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for The Outlook Building at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Sitting opposite to Schiphol’s Headquarters, the Outlook Building is home to Microsoft’s headquarters in The Netherlands as well as for Spaces, Cargill and other international tenants. The Outlook Building is owned by Schiphol Real Estate, a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Schiphol Group. Schiphol Real Estate develops, manages, operates and invests in commercial real estate, primarily at and around Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The headquarters are located at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, Europe’s third largest airport that serves over 69 million passengers annually.
Schiphol Real Estate, Microsoft and Spaces are in the process of re-developing their Outlook Building to meet with Smart Building requirements and needed a smart PGS to help exceed them. In addition to this opportunity, Park Assist’s M4 camera based smart-sensor powered technology will significantly improve The Outlook customer experience by easing the car-finding process with color-coded signage and the monitoring of several dead-ends in the car park.
A global market leader in PGS, Park Assist’s M4 camera-based solution uses integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology as well as digital directional signage, guiding drivers to the nearest available space with directional signage that is configured to display real-time parking availability.
The Outlook Building visitors will now enjoy effortless parking with guidance throughout the entire garage and returning to their car using Park Assist’s Find Your Car™ feature.
Schiphol Real Estate will also take advantage of Park Assist’s software feature Park Alerts™. With this addition, Schiphol will be able to monitor spaces that are specifically reserved and have time restrictions, receiving notifications if a car is in an incorrect bay or has dwelled in the space for too long.
Park Assist will work together with Schiphol’s preferred parking products supplier, Skidata, to complete the project. Installation is expected to begin in October and will go live in December. “Park Assist is delighted to work with Schiphol and Skidata to advance this contemporary smart technology initiative elevating the customer experience and promoting efficiency in garage operations,” said Gary Neff, CEO of Park Assist.
