Whether you operate a large site or a smaller express store, supermarket car parks are frequently busy and prone to abuse. We’ve helped some of the UK’s biggest supermarkets, such as Aldi, Lidl and Asda maintain control over their car parks, generate revenue and improve customer experience. We do this by:
- Deploying powerful technology to stop unauthorised parking and abuse
- Monetising surplus bays to generate revenue
- Developing a deeper understanding of customers & predict trends from ANPR data
- Stopping overstaying to improve space turnover
- Increasing footfall & in-store sales with pre-booking and EV
How can car parks support customers?
Supermarket car parks are some of the busiest in the UK. Millions of people use them each week when they shop, and businesses rely on them to support their customer experience and access to their services. But car parks can do so much more for a supermarket. We work with 5 of the UK’s 6 biggest supermarkets, helping to provide the solutions and support that drive stronger footfall, higher revenue, and a better customer experience.

We take a site-by-site approach, putting together the perfect blend of car park management solutions to help each car park deliver on its true potential.
