GREENVILLE, South Carolina (August 6, 2019) — The City of Greenville selected TIBA Parking Systems to launch customer service centric operations in 11 city-owned garages and one surface lot, totaling at 60 entry and exit lanes.
“After months of research, the City of Greenville, SC has selected TIBA as the provider of PARCS equipment for all 11 of its city managed garages,” said Bill Foster, General Manager of Parking Services for the City of Greenville, South Carolina. “TIBA’s comprehensive solution that includes hardware, software, LPR technology and a mobile application fits our needs completely and we are excited about the improved functionality that will be available to our community.”
The City of Greenville currently operates 11 parking facilities within the Central Business District for a total of 60 lanes and approximately 8,000 spaces. Six downtown hotels, comprised of 3 hotel brands, are also supported by the City parking facilities.
The project will also include License Plate Recognition, Access Credentials, IP Based Intercom, combination of full service pay and credit only in lanes, and offline validations and Smart Sticker Parker Program. “TIBA Parking is proud to work with The City of Greenville as they renovate and expand upon their parking facilities,” said Jon Bowsher, President of TIBA North & South America. “Our focus on customer service and ease of use align with the City’s objectives, and our fast and flexible solutions are a great fit for any size of project.”
The City’s parking operation is fully owned and managed by the city and is customer service centric with revenue generation being secondary. Rapidly becoming known as a “destination” point, Greenville’s remarkable growth can be attributed, in part, to the cosmopolitan feel of the downtown and metro areas. Designed to not only service downtown businesses and urban residents, but the tourism industry, of which available parking and amenities are a substantial part. The driving force in replacing the outdated system was primarily technology driven and based on improving the customer experience, speeding throughput and the reliability/uptime of the system.
“Carolina Time remains excited to play an ongoing part of the modernization of the City’s parking operation led by the advanced capabilities and features of TIBA’s technology, coupled with our 60-year reputation for unparalleled local support,” said Barry Welborn, Carolina Time Branch Manager.
