Member News: Nashville’s Music City Center Selects Park Assist’s Parking Guidance System
NASHVILLE, TN – June 10th, 2020 – Park Assist® has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Nashville’s Music City Center. This 2.1 million-square-foot convention complex opened in 2013 in the heart of downtown Nashville. The facility was primarily built to host large city-wide conventions. Attracting local and national events, Music City Center has continued to evolve while maintaining a strong focus on sustainability and exceptional customer service.
With this evolution, came a significant rise in visitors as well as increased traffic and congestion in the parking facility. To accommodate this traffic, the Music City Center chose to implement Park Assist’s exclusive M4 smart-sensor system to elevate each customer’s parking journey and ensure that their outstanding experience starts in the garage.
Park Assist’s camera-based PGS uses color-coded smart-sensors to navigate parkers to the nearest available space, reducing parking search times while removing stress and uncertainty from the journey. In addition to this M4 technology, the Park Assist guidance system also includes exterior monument signs at the garage entrances and two of Park Assist’s select software extensions, Park Finder™ and Park Alerts™.
Utilizing Park Assist’s License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, Park Finder ensures that the Music City Center’s visitors will be able to easily pinpoint their vehicles upon re-entering the garage. This technology, complemented by Park Assist’s mobile API access, enables returning parkers to find the exact location of their vehicles by entering their license plate number into the Find Your Car™ system. This advanced software system then directs the parker to the correct spot, optimizing the parking experience by minimizing wasted time and unnecessary frustration.
Music City Center will also use Park Assist’s Park Alerts module to enforce parking policies, increase garage productivity and security, and reduce compliance violations. Parking management will be able to establish and implement automated rules and alerts. If these rules are violated, Park Alerts will immediately notify management so they can promptly take the appropriate action.
The Music City Center installation is one of Park Assist’s first convention center projects in North America and its fifth major project in the Nashville area. Its other local sites include Nashville International Airport, Fifth and Broadway, Capitol View and 222 Second Ave.
“We are honored to work with Nashville Music City Center to help deliver a first-class parking experience for all guests and visitors at this bustling convention center.” Said Thomas Alexander, National Channel Manager, North America.
Park Assist was selected for this exciting opportunity due to its proven history of success, strong local presence, and ability to help accommodate the facility’s growth.
