With five parking garages (4159 spaces) servicing a high-end mixed-use environment, the decision by North American Properties (NAP) to remove a million-dollar traditional gated PARCS was not an easy one.
The high cost of equipment repairs and maintenance, combined with the poor customer experience and inflexibility of their legacy equipment, led them to take a leap to go “frictionless.” With proper tenant and customer engagement and messaging, the conversion to a gateless revenue collection and enforcement approach at the Ridge Hill Mall in Yonkers, NY, was achieved.
RISETEK collaborated with NAP leadership to craft a custom solution that met the needs of a diverse tenant base. Flexibility was the key to ensuring a convenient approach to permit employees and offering a varied assortment of validations and parking fee payment options while delivering accurate facility occupancy/utilization data for NAP.
"Coming from a gated ticket issued PARCS system to integrating a gateless LPR parking system. RISETEK can customize daily revenue reports and set parameters to your client and location’s needs. RISETEK has been the backbone of the parking revenue success. Plus, having RISETEK call center and assisting our daily customers and guest has been a positive support system. RISETEK, VERGE, ParkLync and Boot Vision integration system are seamless and easy to navigate. If you are thinking about going gateless at your property, you need the best product and support team. I would highly recommend RISETEK Global.” - Ray Gutierrez, Operations Manager, North American Parking
