With Get My Parking’s retrofit solutions, operators can go digital without worrying about investing in expensive new equipment that increases their carbon footprint.
Our IoT GateKit is capable of retrofitting and integrating existing third-party equipment with the centralized platform. By removing the need to discard old equipment, retrofit technology helps the parking industry reduce carbon emissions, fuel consumption, and resource wastage.
How Polluting is the Parking Industry?
Motorists in the US spend an average of 17 hours every year searching for parking spaces - this wastes around $345 worth of time, fuel, and emissions per driver according to an analysis by INRIX.
But on the other extreme is the fact that there are at least 500 million empty spaces in the US at any given time. Very few efficient systems exist that help drivers find the right parking spots when they need them.
This issue has a long-lasting impact on the environment and can only be solved if more parking operators had the resources to offer digital parking reservations and payment methods.
Here’s Why Retrofitting is the Answer:
Replacing every barrier and P&D machine can lead to massive wastage, which is why Get My Parking aims to retrofit legacy equipment as quickly and cost-effectively as we can.
Considering how environmentalists prioritize reusing and reducing over the third part of the slogan (recycling), revamping existing equipment can help operators contribute to incremental carbon saving. Instead of manually upgrading all the gates, retrofitting parking equipment can help us even the odds against climate change.
Our IoT GateKit consists of a small Plug N Play device that upgrades offline gates, enables touchless access, and integrates all the barrier gates onto a single platform. Operators can control their parking business remotely from a centralized admin dashboard. Retrofitting is also a lightning-fast process with minimal upgrade costs since all it takes is a little black box to set up seamless access into the car park.
Retrofitting technology is the greenest way to digitize parking. Learn more about GMP’s operator-friendly green solutions here.
