TIBA Parking Launches the PI Business Intelligence Platform, Transforming and Modernizing Off-Street Parking Operations

Columbus, OH (June 7, 2019) — In response to parking operators’ and owners’ demands to modernize their operations, increase revenue and profitability, and enhance business decisions based on parking specific data, TIBA is launching their new PI (Parking Intelligence) platform for real-time business analytics. PI will be launching at the IPMI Conference & Expo and is part of the “Engaged Parking Experience” product suite, which includes new lane and payment equipment, cloud solutions and PARCS management, a completely new mobile-based platform for digital operators and customers, along with PI cross-brand parking intelligence service. The suite will allow operators to reduce overall operational costs, increase efficiency, simplify installation and serviceability, and increase security of systems.

TIBA’s new PI business intelligence platform, to be unveiled at IPMI, was developed specifically for parking and is based on decades of knowhow in the parking industry. PI provides parking optimization based on data driven decisions and includes an easy and intuitive visualization of real-time and historical information. By automatically aggregating data from multiple PARCS (Parking Access and Revenue Control Systems), PI identifies trends and inefficiencies in parking operations. PI allows parking operators and owners to improve their facility efficiencies and set targets and goals for each facility based on historical and current data.

PI business intelligence provides multiple occupancy analytics such as occupancy over time, average entries per hour, parking durations, occupancy utilization, and returning drivers per type. PI also provides revenue analytics including revenue generated over time, daily revenue per entry time, revenue per space and daily revenue per space. PI collects its data automatically from multiple facilities and displays the data effortlessly on a personalized, parking specific dashboard. All the data collected can be exported in various formats to be used by third party applications.

 “As parking operators and drivers enter the new age of cloud computing and connected cars, they need the wealth of data collected to provide them with improved decision making. With PI’s automatic data aggregation and analytics, operators are now able to spend more time analyzing data and making appropriate business decisions. TIBA also ensures that its’ PI platform can automatically manage data from multiple facilities and multiple PARCS vendors,” said Moshe David, CEO of TIBA. “We provide the tools for our customers to be efficient, cost competitive, and modern.” “We are excited for the opportunity to expose TIBA’s new PI business intelligence platform to our customers,” said Rob Bell, President at Precision Technology Solutions. “As a Value-Add Reseller, we have been asked by our customers to provide new and improved business solutions to our customers, allowing them to aggregate, display and analyze data in real time.  We are pleased to note that TIBA not only listens to our customers but also acts positively on their demands. This new PI business intelligence platform is a real efficiency booster.”

TIBA Parking Launches the X60 Line of Parking Equipment, Transforming and Modernizing Off-Street Parking Operations

Columbus, OH (June 5, 2019) — In response to parking operators’ and owners’ demands to modernize their operations, increase revenue and profitability, and a global shift towards increased security initiatives, TIBA is launching its’ new X60 family lane and payment equipment, as part of the “Engaged Parking Experience” product line. The suite will be displayed at the IPMI Conference & Expo and includes new lane and payment equipment, cloud solutions for PARCS management, a new mobile-based platform for digital operators, and a cross-brand parking intelligence service. These new solutions will allow operators to reduce overall operational costs, increase efficiency, simplify installation and serviceability, and increase security of systems.

TIBA’s new X60 hardware family, to be unveiled at IPMI, is part of the Engaged Parking Experience. Designed around a completely new parking-specific processor, the new hardware is highly secure, exceptionally fast, and with the largest transaction storage volume. The X60 uses native TCP/IP communication, but can also support Rs485 protocol allowing a complete mix-and-match between TIBA’s current hardware line and the new hardware family, protecting TIBA’s customers’ investment. The extra-large touch screen allows for a sophisticated user interaction with dynamic rate displays, multiple payment options, and a personalized experience. The X60 provides a ticketless, frictionless experience but has the capacity to hold to largest ticket roll in the industry. A built-in pin-hole camera and VoIP intercom complete the engaged experience.

The new X60 family, with its modern and up to date processor-based technology, is the fastest and most secure system in the market. The design facilitates installation, maintenance and repair, and with separate compartments for installers and operators to further protect the systems from accidental tampering. The X60 line supports a multitude of credential readers and sensors, with a customizable faceplate and an extra-large multifunctional display. A modern look and feel, and a smaller footprint give the systems a refined appearance. As with all TIBA systems, and based on our 30 years of filed experience, the new hardware is stainless steel providing durable weather resistance and longevity.

“As parking operators and drivers enter the new age of connected parking, they expect new systems to fulfill these requirements without having to massively replace the existing install base. TIBA’s mix and match solution, where equipment from different generations can easily coexist, allows our customers and operators to safely transition from existing systems to newer generation solutions and benefit from the new engaged parking experience,” said Moshe David, CEO of TIBA. “We provide the tools for our customers to be efficient, competitive, and modern.”

“We are excited about the opportunity to expose TIBA’s new hardware family to our customers,” said Barry Lazowski, Founder and COO of Control Systems, Inc. “As a Value-Add Reseller, we have been asked by customers to provide new and improved solutions without the need to change their entire existing infrastructure. We are excited that TIBA not only listens to their partners and customers, but also acts positively on their demands. This new product family is a game changer!”

TIBA Parking Introduces the “Engaged Parking Experience” New Product Suite, Transforming and Modernizing Off-Street Parking Operations

Columbus, OH (June 3, 2019) — In response to parking operators’ and owners’ demands to modernize their operations, increase revenue and profitability, and a global shift towards increased security initiatives, TIBA is launching its new “Engaged Parking Experience” product suite and will display it at the IPMI Conference & Expo. The new product suite includes new lane and payment equipment, cloud solutions for PARCS management, a new mobile-based platform for digital operators, and a cross-brand parking intelligence service. The suite allows operators to reduce overall operational costs, increase efficiency, simplify installation and serviceability, and increase security of systems.

TIBA’s new X60 hardware family, to be unveiled at IPMI, is a key part of the Engaged Parking Experience. Designed around a completely new, modern parking-specific processor, the new hardware is highly secure, exceptionally fast, flexible, and includes the largest transaction storage volume. The X60 uses native TCP/IP communication, but can also support Rs485 protocol allowing a complete mix-and-match solution between TIBA’s current hardware line and the new hardware family, protecting TIBA’s customers’ investment in lane equipment. The extra-large touch screen allows a more sophisticated user interaction with dynamic rate displays, multiple payment options and a personalized experience. The X60 also provides a ticketless, frictionless experience but has the capacity to hold the largest ticket roll in the industry. A built-in pin-hole camera and VoIP intercom complete the engaged experience.

TIBA’s PARCS management software can be operated both in the cloud as well as installed in a traditional on-premise server. TIBA is also adding a new SPARK layer, on top of the SmartPark management software, allowing operators to centrally manage all their devices from the cloud and receive prioritized alerts to a central control room. The wealth of capabilities that was built by TIBA in its 30 years of experience in parking is maintained in the new products, but is now available for both the on-premise implementation and in a cloud environment.

TIBA will also be launching ParkBlue, a mobile based digital operator platform that allows owners and operators to launch mobile parking services to monthly parkers and transient drivers. ParkBlue features a complete mobile app for both iOS and Android that allows drivers to register to the digital parking service, insert their payment details, and locate, select and navigate to their preferred parking facility. Using the app and the mobile phone Bluetooth functionality, drivers can enter and exit facilities, and pay through the app. Behind the scenes, a complete digital PARCS back-end cloud platform manages the IoT Bluetooth devices that can be installed on any gate, regardless of the PARCS technology in the facility. The cloud platform also manages prices, provides parking analytics and intelligence, and manages registered drivers and payments.

The complete Engaged Parking Experience includes TIBA’s Parking Intelligence (PI) Cloud Service. Designed specifically for parking, this advanced module automatically aggregates data from multiple PARCS facilities and presents actionable analysis to facility managers. Using intuitive visualization of both real-time and historical data, for occupancy, revenue, and drivers’ behavior, PI can identify trends and inefficiencies in parking operations.

“As parking operators and drivers enter the new age of cloud computing and connected cars, they expect new systems to fulfill new requirements without having to massively replace the existing install base. TIBA has taken this into consideration and provides, inherently, a mix-and-match solution where equipment from different generations, along with Parking Intelligence, enables operators to go digital. This allows our operators to safely transition to the newest generation and benefit from the new engaged parking experience,” said Moshe David, CEO of TIBA. “We want our customers to have it all, at a decent price, with a personal touch, and without losing the 30+ years of experience and knowhow we have put into our systems.”

“We are excited for the opportunity to expose TIBA’s new technology to our customers,” said Chris Archer, CEO of Associated Time & Parking Controls. “As a Value-Added Reseller, we have been asked by our customers to provide cross- platform solutions that allow operators to engage their drivers, use business intelligence to improve their experience and ultimately increase revenues and profitability. Only TIBA has the right set of tools to support these initiatives today and in the future!”

TIBA Parking Systems Rapidly Deploys and Commissions 15 Lanes of Revenue Control Equipment at Memorial Hermann Property, LLC in 72 Hours

Memorial Hermann

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 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.”

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.

ParkBlue Successfully Launched in Ohio and Indiana by TIBA Parking Systems, Enabling a Frictionless Parking Experience

TIBA Parking Systems’ Bluetooth technology (BLE), ParkBlue, was successfully implemented in Ohio and Indiana for monthly transients at multiple sites.

Since July, hundreds of monthly users have utilized the first ParkBlue garages installed by Signature Control Systems, in partnership with TIBA Parking Systems and Hertz Investment Group.

Monthly parkers at these locations now have the ability to gain frictionless access to the garage using their branded mobile app. As the driver approaches the entry and exit devices, the gate detects the mobile device and allows the parker into the garage by using the phone as the credential. Drivers can also access a secondary QR code by manually tapping their ParkBlue application on their phone if needed.

This not only offers convenience to the parker who no longer has to roll down their window and present an access credential, but also offers convenience to the owner and operator who does not have to purchase and distribute expensive access credentials which are continuously lost and transferred amongst other users.

This Bluetooth solution has also increased the throughput of the facility as less time is required in the lane to manually authenticate the driver.

Operators can benefit from the ease of dialing-in the sensor range of the ParkBlue device through the software so as not to detect other users in adjacent lanes or in the same vehicle.

“TIBA is thrilled to bring frictionless parking and better ease of use to monthly drivers,” stated John Whiteman, TIBA Executive Vice President of Sales. “We look forward to expanding upon ParkBlue to help more drivers navigate to specific open spaces throughout different lots, assisting garage operators with managing overflow traffic, and increasing driver data through a robust business intelligence platform.”

“We are excited to bring TIBA’s Bluetooth enabled access app to North America via these first two installations,” stated John Bambey, Vice President at Signature Control Systems. “It’s great to be able to provide our customers and parkers with this level of industry leading technology and ease of access.”

Hertz Investment Group owns both garages and plans to expand ParkBlue to more locations.

“Hertz continuously strives to enhance our tenant and guest experience throughout our portfolio,” said Larry Isrow, Vice President at Hertz. “By introducing new parking technology such as ParkBlue, we have provided our tenants with easy, quick and efficient garage access. Since most people have their phone with them, our tenants enjoy the added convenience of not having to use a key card. Due to the successful implementation of ParkBlue at Hertz locations in Indianapolis and Cincinnati, we will be offering this amenity to other Hertz garages.”

TIBA Ticketless PARC Solution
Written by Sarah Kahler

TIBA Ticketless PARC Solution: Transport for NSW, Australia

THE CHALLENGE

The public transportation department of Sydney Australia, Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), identified a need to free up parking spaces for commuters across their network of train and bus stations. To do this in a seamless manner that would not disrupt the customer experience, they decided to deliver a ticketless solution for entry and exit to their Park & Ride parking lots. To confirm that each parking customer has traveled on public transport, there was also a requirement to integrate with TfNSW’s smartcard ticket system – Opal card.

TfNSW, together with Wilson Parking, chose TIBA Parking Solutions to deliver this cutting-edge technology.

HOW IT WORKS

The Customer

To qualify for free Transport Park & Ride parking, the parking customer must:

• Be the holder of a valid Opal card
• Park in a dedicated Transport Park & Ride parking facility
• Tap on and tap off with their Opal card to complete a trip on public transport
• Use the same Opal card to tap out of the parking lot

The System

In order to deliver this customer experience, the TIBA ticketless system does the following:

• Parking location and space availability is displayed from an integrated LED sign to attract commuter parkers.
• On entry, TIBA’s license plate recognition (LPR) system reads each vehicle’s number plate to provide access, there is no need for the driver to stop and take a ticket. The process takes less than 2 seconds and is seamless to the driver.
• On exit, the LPR system matches the number plate to the vehicle’s entry time and calculates the applicable parking fee. If the customer has taken a valid trip on public transport using their Opal card, they simply tap their Opal card on the integrated reader and free exit is provided.
• Parking customers that have stayed longer than 20 minutes and have not used public transport simply pay the applicable fee with their credit card on the integrated readers at the exit. A contactless credit card reader is available to provide a “Tap & Go” experience for both commuter and non-commuter parking customers.
• Each TIBA Park & Ride location is managed with TIBA SPARK. This cloud-based management system provides remote control over single or multiple locations through a user-friendly graphical interface to monitor system status as well as remotely issuing tickets and/or opening barrier gates.

TRANSPORT PARK & RIDE LOCATIONS

TfNSW is running the Park & Ride solution as a trial at selected locations, that have been identified through surveying as key areas to increase commuter parking availability.

• Ashfield Park & Ride is located approximately 11km to the west of Sydney’s central business district (CBD) and provides over 230 dedicated commuter bays with 2 entry lanes and 2 exit lanes.
• Kogarah Park & Ride is located approximately 18km to the south of Sydney’s CBD and provides over 250 dedicated commuter bays with 1 entry lane and 1 exit lane.
• Seven Hills Park & Ride is located approximately 35km to the northwest of Sydney’s CBD and provides over 1,500 dedicated commuter bays across 2 sections comprising of 2 entry lanes and 4 exit lanes.

THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORT PARK & RIDE

TIBA’s world class technology in the pilot locations has brought a new ease of use for TfNSW parking customers. The management of each parking facility through TIBA’s SPARK system means that control of each location is fully scalable.

TfNSW manages nearly 600 million annual trips across their transport system. Their network of stations is serviced by nearly 400 parking stations.

Following a successful pilot program, the intention is to roll-out this ticketless solution to each of their networks ‘high-demand’ locations on a systematic basis.
