TIBA Parking Systems Rapidly Deploys and Commissions 15 Lanes of Revenue Control Equipment at Memorial Hermann Property, LLC in 72 Hours
Houston, TX (April 2, 2019) - 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
“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.”

TIBA Parking Systems Increases Revenue and User Satisfaction at American Civil War Center with Entry Guard Systems
Richmond, VA (March 28, 2019) – Entry Guard Systems, in conjunction with TIBA Parking Systems, has expanded the revenue stream, as well as enhanced the visitor and general public parking experience at the American Civil War Museum located at Historic Tredegar in Richmond, Virginia.
“This significant improvement of the parking experience has allowed the museum staff to control the ratio of visitors, while also serving tourists and riverfront visitors,” says Frank Kollmansperger, President of Entry Guard Systems. “The gates not only remain functional during traditional business hours, but also during evenings and weekends, providing more parking options for the general public and increasing year-around revenue for the museum.”
With the relocation of the museum’s parking area and the upgrade to TIBA’s parking access and revenue control solutions (PARCS), the American Civil War Museum moved to a fully automated PARC system. This includes a shift to a credit card only solution which has the capability to collect revenue around the clock, and the implementation of easy validation through TIBA’s validation sticker system. The growth in readily available parking spaces and new ease of use for drivers has benefited museum visitors and beyond.
“TIBA’s goal is to increase end-user satisfaction while assisting our customers in growing their profitability. The American Civil War Museum is in a great location in Richmond to benefit from both objectives,” added John Whiteman, Executive Vice-President of Sales for TIBA Parking Systems. “The museum’s guests remain the top priority while other patrons can benefit from the ease of use and convenient location.”
Entry Guard Systems joined the TIBA Parking Systems Value Added Reseller network in 2016.
