Richmond, VA (March 28, 2019) – Entry Guard Systems, in conjunction with TIBA Parking Systems, has expanded the revenue stream, as well as enhanced the visitor and general public parking experience at the American Civil War Museum located at Historic Tredegar in Richmond, Virginia.

“This significant improvement of the parking experience has allowed the museum staff to control the ratio of visitors, while also serving tourists and riverfront visitors,” says Frank Kollmansperger, President of Entry Guard Systems. “The gates not only remain functional during traditional business hours, but also during evenings and weekends, providing
more parking options for the general public and increasing year-around revenue for the museum.”

With the relocation of the museum’s parking area and the upgrade to TIBA’s parking access and revenue control solutions (PARCS), the American Civil War Museum moved to a fully automated PARC system. This includes a shift to a credit card only solution which has the capability to collect revenue around the clock, and the implementation of easy
validation through TIBA’s validation sticker system. The growth in readily available parking spaces and new ease of use for drivers has benefited museum visitors and beyond.

“TIBA’s goal is to increase end-user satisfaction while assisting our customers in growing their profitability. The American Civil War Museum is in a great location in Richmond to benefit from both objectives,” added John Whiteman, Executive Vice-President of Sales for TIBA Parking Systems. “The museum’s guests remain the top priority while other patrons can benefit from the ease of use and convenient location.”  Entry Guard Systems joined the TIBA Parking Systems Value Added Reseller network in 2016.
