Parking payments always change with the time, from Park-O-Meters to modern PnD machines. However, parkers in a post-pandemic, tech-driven world need hands-on driving in parking lots, complete with fast, touchless gates, advance booking, and digital payments.
A few operators choose to launch parking apps to cater to this new requisite. But many people don’t prefer the commitment to a dedicated app just for parking. The non-tech-savvy folks will take time to set their profile up and get used to the UI.
QR-based payment systems allow parkers to enjoy all the perks of a quick, smart parking experience without a dedicated app. With solutions like GMP QR, parkers can scan, park and pay from the convenience of their phone browsers.
Here's why switching to app-less, QR-based parking can boost your business:
Quick, cashless, convenient
A long queue of frustrated drivers waiting to pay for parking can quickly escalate into a heated feud. A lightning-fast, user-friendly QR payment system can help you avoid it.
Easy to set up and maintain
A QR payment solution eliminates the need for ticket kiosks or parking apps. It's also really easy to set up - just place the QR code conveniently around the parking lot in areas with the most foot traffic. This way customers can scan the code and pay on the go. It’s also easier to maintain compared to expensive, large hardware.
Guaranteed to boost your revenue
Setting up a quick and comfortable parking experience will help you attract new customers while maintaining brand loyalty with existing users. QR payment solutions help you create a strong customer base of transient parkers, resulting in increased revenue.
Cost-effective and Fraud-proof
Since parkers can pay online without human assistance, parking lots will require less manpower to operate, which will help them cut costs. QR codes also optimize payment collection by eliminating the risk attached to cash payments, like encountering counterfeit currency, accidental short-changing, etc.
Upsell other services
If you have a website or app that facilitates online bookings or lists the terms and conditions of your location, you can easily divert traffic to it with a QR code. A website URL or app store QR code will redirect customers to these platforms with a simple scan. They can use this to pre-book a parking space or extend their session.
