Member News: Park Assist has been Awarded the Parking Guidance System Contract for Easton Town Center’s Worth and Midtown Garages
COLUMBUS, OHIO – October 8, 2019 – Park Assist has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Easton Town Center’s Worth and Midtown Garages in Columbus, Ohio. Easton Town Center is an expanding indoor and outdoor shopping complex, serving as the premier shopping, dining, and entertainment hub in the Midwest. The mall boasts over 30 million visitors per year and features best-in-class retailers, outstanding restaurants, Ohio’s largest movie theater, a superior comedy club, and incredible outdoor squares. In an effort to cultivate the ideal customer experience, Easton Town Center will use Park Assist’s patented technology to create a convenient, efficient, and easy-to-navigate parking solution.
Easton Town Center is an existing client and already uses Park Assist’s M4 camera-based PGS in their Southwest Garage. This was the first camera-based, intelligent parking solution on the property, met with extraordinary success. Since its installation, the parking structure has benefitted from a reduction in search times, increased data, and improved security measures due to Park Alerts™ notifications.
Given the reliability and success of the system in the Southwest Garage, Park Assist was again chosen as the PGS provider for the Worth and Midtown Garages. These sites will use the same M4 technology to guide the parker journey.
The LED lights on Park Assist’s smart-sensors will serve to quickly signal parkers to open spaces, avoiding unnecessary delays and elevating the customer experience.
As an alternative to installing wayfinding signage, Park Assist will use an API to communicate space availabilities to Easton’s third-party parking management software provider, All Traffic Solutions, who will then display the available space counts on mobile applications and roadway signs throughout the property. This collaboration will curate a seamless parker journey and allow Easton to utilize their existing platform comfortably without needing to install additional hardware.
Site work began at the end of September. Park Assist has subcontracted a reputable local installer to handle the installation which will be performed in 3 phases. While Worth Garage is undergoing renovations occurring in 2 phases, the Midtown Garage work will begin as striping is completed within the garage.
