University, college and school car park management

A good number of colleges, universities and other educational facilities across the country are managed in-house by their own security staff, which can be a time-consuming, difficult-to-police task due to their size. On top of this, a number of other common issues often present themselves, including:

  • Over-subscribed car parks during term time
  • Expensive or out-of-date barrier systems
  • Unauthorised parking on site
  • An increased number of student and staff parking permits
  • Complexity managing lots of different user types – from students and staff to visitors and suppliers

We’re all too aware that when it comes to the educational sector, car park management is often at the bottom of the to-do list due to limited resource and funds. However, Parkingeye’s know-how helps to minimise stress so our clients can focus on other issues.

The Parkingeye process

When we sit down with clients looking for car park management in education institutions to discuss their issues, it’s important that we find out how their site is currently managed, and what they aim to achieve with a new system in place. It’s often the case that the system they currently have is outdated and unreliable; our innovative ANPR car park management system allows for extensive management of the entire estate.

Our tailored solutions for educational sites include:

  • ANPR cameras
  • Virtual permit system and digital permit management
  • Payment machines
  • Manual ticketing
  • Maximising revenue from permits
  • Data analytics to identify peaks and troughs
  • Flexible paperless permits to manage different zones/CPs

Common challenges for education

Reduce car park abuse

ANPR delivers the perfect balance of reliability, durability and accuracy. Using ANPR cameras we log every single vehicle entering your site so we can we track who’s on your site at any point in time. Any unauthorised users or someone who leaves without paying will be issued with a Parking Charge Notice (PCN), reducing the abuse very effectively.

Generating revenue

Anyone involved in the business must ensure they’re doing their utmost to open up revenue streams and maximise the potential for profit. Car parks are often overlooked as a revenue generator but there are numerous ways in which to reduce costs and increase revenues using ANPR technology, including renting any unused car park spaces.

Customer experience

First-class service begins the moment your guests enter the car park, with final impressions made as they drive out – no matter how hard your team has worked in-between. Complaints take time to manage but can really hurt your reputation. Thanks to ANPR, managing your car park has never been simpler. Let Parkingeye show you how.

  • Our college is located in St Helens town centre where parking is limited and expensive. Prior to Parkingeye installing the new system, our staff struggled to park on site because the car parks were constantly full of unauthorised users. The Parkingeye team worked closely with us to understand our aims and requirements for our car park and provided us with all the tools we need to manage different types of permits and visitors on site, as well as installing and maintaining all of the equipment free of charge.
