Car Park Management for Retail Parks

ParkingEye have various retail park solutions

Parking management for retail sites


ParkingEye understands the importance of proper retail car park management. Slick and simple, it helps improve the customer’s experience and minimises any potential for dissatisfaction from the moment they enter our client’s car parks.

Due to their proximity to town centres, local attractions or public transport links, many of our clients have struggled with car park abuse. Having an effective, free-flow car park management system in place on-site acts as a deterrent to this misuse without deterring their genuine customers.

Naturally, retail parks tend to require facilities for a high number of cars parking on site. This causes issues from a capacity and congestion perspective – potentially affecting the customer experience and impacting the throughput of the car park.

ParkingEye has helped a huge number of landowners in the retail sector improve the functionality and profitability of their car parking provision. Implementing high-free-flow environments and next-generation payments options, ParkingEye has allowed customers to significantly improve throughput and reduce misuse at the same time.

Especially beneficial for large retail sites which experience peaks and troughs in demand, ParkingEye can provide market-leading analytics offering insight into site-by-site user behaviour patterns.

Parking solutions for retail parks

ParkingEye has installed a variety of solutions tailored to suit the needs of our clients for their sites, including ANPR with payment machines, limited free stay or a combination of both. With our flexible system, we’re able to accommodate night time, weekend and special event parking too.

Building on the rich source of data our cameras provide, we’re able to offer deeper insights into our clients’ parking facilities with our reporting capabilities, including:

  • Average stay duration
  • Number of repeat visits
  • Hot-spots (through heat maps) for occupancy and capacity, by hour, day of the week and location
  • Seasonality effects
  • Comparisons with previous time periods

Specifically, this can be used to determine peak/low-peak periods to help set opening times, promotional programmes, planning and much more.

What’s more, because we work on around 3,500 ANPR sites across a broad range of sectors, we’re able to provide all these insights with a benchmark comparator against the performance of similar organisations and peers within a given sector, all fully anonymised and aggregated.

To discuss the requirements of your site or for more information feel free to contact us today.
