What features should a PARCS have for the Hospitality Operators?

Hotel room keys with parking privileges

The flourishing hospitality industry has only just recently started to deploy modern parking technology to help ensure the quality of the guest experience as well as to generate business benefits from parking facility assets.

This raises unique opportunities and challenges.  As a Hotel Operator, your primary need is a reliable and agile Parking Access and Revenue Control System (PARCS) that easily integrates with your Property Management System (PMS). And a PARCS solution also agile enough to grant your existing room keys (whether mag-strip or MiFare RFID) self-parking, in/out access privileges in the hotel’s parking facility.

Efficient Management

With an efficient PARCS, at check in, self-parking privileges can be added to a guest’s folio enabling in/out self-parking access for guests using their room keys. Parking fees can be payable at garage lane exits, lobby payment kiosks or as guest room charges. License Plate Recognition (LPR) can optionally be added to speed lane transactions as well as to identify abuse or misuse by pairing vehicle ID numbers to hotel room keys.

Agile integration

Many different PMS platforms are in use today. In large hotel chains Agilsys, Marriott, Galaxy LightSpeed and Opera/MICROS/Oracle are among the most widely deployed. In smaller hotels, a host of third-party brands exist. So, any PARCS solution must be sufficiently agile to integrate with any installed PMS. But today, a PARCS must also have the required agility to integrate with loyalty programs as ‘Total Rewards’, valet parking systems such as ‘CVPS’, resort timeshares like ‘Hilton Grand Vacations’ and even government agencies like the ‘Nevada ‘Department of Motor Vehicles’.

The ‘Right’ PARCS

The ‘Right’ PARCS solution must be able to holistically fuse today’s world of business and operation applications into a single integrated parking solution. The ‘Right’ PARCS must be agile and adaptable as you expand operations. The ‘Right’ PARCS also needs to be efficient, keeping the cost of ownership to a minimum; and above all else, the ‘Right’ PARCS must be simple for both your guests and hotel personnel.

TIBA’s HotelConnect is that ‘Right’ PARCS for today. HotelConnect offers easy, secure and fast integration with practically any PMS, and a wide range of business and operations hospitality applications.

HotelConnect can help generate ongoing, real revenue for you the hotel operator, and at the same time deliver a more positive experience to your guests. HotelConnect can also help reduce operating costs in addition to increasing the financial returns of your facility’s parking space assets.

Caesars Entertainment – Centralized management and control solution

The challenge

For years, Caesars Entertainment in Las Vegas hesitated to charge for self-parking since the company believed that this action would deter visitors from staying or shopping at their resorts. Today these resorts no longer have sufficient capacity to meet demand, making parking a major customer service issue for Caesars. Consequently, to ensure that guests would have an improved parking experience, Caesars chose to initiate a state-of-the-art parking management system.

The solution – A centralized command and control PARCS system

With vast experience in delivering advanced integrated parking solutions, TIBA Parking Systems was selected to provide a centralized Parking Access and Revenue Control Solution (PARCS) solution for 8 Caesars properties consisting of: 68 entry & exit lanes, in addition to 24 hotel lobby payment kiosks. At the core of the solution, is SmartPark Command; TIBA’s control-room ready PARCS solution from which service personnel can remote manage and control guest service situations in any of Caesars’ parking locations.

For Caesars, SmartPark Command fused TIBA’s innovative centralized PARCS solution together with two-way audio, CCTV and License Plate Recognition (LPR) into one holistic operational view for fast triaging of parking service situations.

The new SmartPark Command system includes:

  • Integration with each of the hotel’s Local Management Systems (LMS), enabling in/out parking access for guests, regardless of the number of vehicles, using their room keys at any of the self-parking facilities.
  • Varied, flexible self-parking, valet and discount pricing policies between and across all resort properties with parking fees payable at garage lane exits, lobby payment kiosks or as guest room charges.
  • Integration with Caesars’ Total Rewards loyalty program granting loyalty members tiered self-parking and valet service benefits using their membership cards as payment at lane exits, lobby payment kiosks or as part of their guest room charges.
  • Complementary self-parking for Nevada state residents up to 24 hours at any of the resort properties by using their valid driver’s license as an access credential at any entry or exit lane or at any payment kiosk. Beyond the 24hrs, the pricing policy of that resort facility will be automatically charged.
  • License plate recognition (LPR) to speed lane transactions as well as to identify abuse or misuse by pairing vehicle ID numbers with any guest access credential.
  • Over-Height sensors for the auto generation of oversized rate tickets for RVs, campers, and the like.
  • Two custom web portals for any of Caesars’ internal business departments to self-manage worker and contractor parking or to validate and print valet and self-parking visitor discounts.
  • All garage lanes, in addition to lobby pay kiosks are paired to CCTV cameras, so that personnel will automatically see the location of the service situation without the need to manually select which camera to view.

Business results:

New revenue for Caesars Entertainment, better utilization of company parking assets, lower operational costs per facility and a more positive experience for guests, visitors and employees.
