Parking LotI received an alert last month on a subject we at ECI are, of course, very interested in and try to keep abreast of regularly. The subject matter is parking access and revenue control systems (PARCS). This article addressed easing the stress involved in airport parking.

I received an update on my smartphone about an article on Patch from their North Carolina publication. The headline intrigued me, it read “Parking Getting Easier At CLT”. Basically, it was a press release offering details about a new parking access and revenue control system that was recently launched at Charlotte Douglas International Airport on the west end of Charlotte, North Carolina.

The airport is transitioning to cashierless parking operations with no face-to-face contact. The new touch-free PARCS system promises “enhanced customer services and improved operational capability”. They claim advance booking and advance payments will remove some of the stress from the parking experience.

The parking access and revenue control system incorporates some of the newer technology we embrace at ECI such as real-time parking availability software, license plate recognition, mobile and credit card payment terminals, etc.

A page on the airport’s website takes one through a four-step process that seems easy enough even to the technically challenged.  You select your (1) travel dates, (2) location, (3) billing details and then (4) confirm. I did not go through the steps since I was not flying from there soon. You can select from either hourly or long-term parking and even select from other parking services (i.e. valet) when again offered.

I personally know that parking at airports can be extremely stressful. So I wish them success.
