Member News: Wetherbee Electric Awarded Parking Garage Contract in Oklahoma City’s Convention Center

Oklahoma City, OK, September 2019​ – Wetherbee Electric has been awarded  a contract to sell and install nine SKIDATA reversible entry/exit equipment  lanes and six automatic SKIDATA payment kiosks at the Oklahoma City  Convention Center parking garage. The parking garage will serve the  Convention Center, Scissortail Park, the Omni Hotel, and the Boulevard Place.  The facility will utilize the sweb​®​ platform Version 12 from SKIDATA to assist  in facility reporting, customer service, online reservations, and more. Software  and hardware are continually evolving, so utilizing state of the art parking  equipment is a necessary step in providing a great customer experience for  Oklahoma City residents and visitors.

The reversible lanes will make parking convenient and flexible for patrons.  During events, the facility can convert the lanes to entries so that visitors can  get into the garage efficiently. At the end of the event, the facility can reverse  the direction of the lanes to help visitors exit more promptly. The automatic payment kiosks will accept cash, coin, and credit card. Patrons have the  option to pay with a credit card upon entry or pay upon exiting the facility.

“The Convention Center parking facility is going to utilize state of the art  parking equipment, which parking patrons will really appreciate,” said Mike  Cooke, President of Wetherbee Electric. “This intention is for the facility to be  unmanned, which allows the city to divert resources to higher-need areas.”  Wetherbee has been partnering with businesses and individuals in Oklahoma  City for over 100 years to help them revitalize their facilities.

Wetherbee Electric is a contractor that has been proudly serving the people  of Oklahoma and beyond for 120 years in the parking, municipal, and  industrial sectors.
