Description: In an industry where parking technology is evolving more rapidly than many can wrap their minds around, how does one know what technologies to leverage and how they can truly benefit their organization? The “Utilizing Technology: A How-To Guide on Converting to a Virtual and Electronic Parking Environment” presentation will take attendees behind the scenes regarding how UNC Charlotte decided to use new technology to operate using virtual permits and electronic citations, connect both mobile and fixed license plate recognition (LPR) systems together for complete campus coverage, and how the project was designed and implemented while also discussing lessons learned along the way.
