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.”
