Parking solutions for leisure and tourism sites

Since 2004, we’ve been working with a variety of leisure and tourism businesses from gyms and golf clubs to tourist hotspots and national parks and we understand there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to a car parking problem.

Corresponding with potential clients, no stone goes unturned when it comes to understanding their issues and aims. In reaching a decision, we’ll often use a combination of the following:

  • ANPR cameras
  • Payment machines
  • Limited free-stay allowances
  • Terminals for both free or paid parking
  • Manual ticketing to allow specific bays to be monitored

The leisure and tourism industry, for its customers at least, is all about having fun. We recognise the importance of putting your customer first, which is why when we install our systems, we also install clear signage across the site to inform motorists exactly what the terms of parking are, as decided by the client. This ensures motorists are aware of any paid tariffs, limited stay times or additional rules that must be adhered to, dramatically reducing abuse in the process.

    Common challenges for Leisure & Tourism

    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, helping to drastically reduce abuse.

    Unauthorised Users

    Generating revenue

    Businesses need to ensure they’re doing their utmost to open revenue streams and maximise their potential for profit. Car parks are often overlooked as a revenue generator but there are numerous ways to reduce costs and increase revenues using ANPR technology.

    Generating Revenue

    Customer experience

    First-class service begins the moment your guests enter the car park, with final impressions made as they drive out. Complaints take time to manage and can severely damage your reputation and the perception of your brand. Thanks to ANPR, managing your car park has never been simpler.
