Season parking allows the car owner to park his/her car regularly, near his/her home or workplace, at a fixed and always discounted monthly rate. Even at a discounted rate, season parking income is steadier than casual parking. Season parking as part of the parking management system is always considered less challenging than casual parking.
This is not true.
In fact, in terms of daily operation, yes, season parking would pose a lesser problem because season parkers are "known" customers, easier to manage, and casual parkers are random; anything can happen. But in terms of the system, season parking is far more complicated. Because of the "known" user and a special discount provided, it kind of becomes a member. Hence, the season parking system is also a sort of 'membership' system; it has an application form, issuance of a special pass, deposit collection, monthly payment, overdue payment, 'membership' renewal, and termination. Besides individual 'members', it has group 'members', and their company pays their monthly 'membership' fees. And to add to the complication, it may have different types of 'membership', different parking rates, either with a dedicated or non-dedicated parking lot. Some parking sites even have nested parking areas for season parkers.
None of the above matters for the casual parkers; just set the parking rate; it applies to all.
As TimeTec Parking Management System is a cloud-based system and App-enabled, it provides more features for season parking such as interactive capability likes payment reminders, online application, online payment, renewal, etc. It supports RFID cards, TNG cards, QR codes, and License Plate Recognition (LPR) for season parking access. When a parking site uses a QR code or LPR as season parking access, it can save the card issuance, and all administrative processes can be done over the internet.
"There is a common problem faced by commercial buildings during peak hours when casual mixed with season parking. If parking lots are dedicated to season parkers, during peak hours, casual parkers would have difficulty finding parking even though there are still quite a lot of empty lots overhung with car plate numbers belonging to season parkers. What a waste! But in contrast, if parking bays are non-dedicated, season parkers would be upset by not finding a place to park their cars during peak hours while paying their monthly fees." Said TimeTec Group CEO, Teh Hon Seng.
"How to balance the two requires arithmetic skills. TimeTec Smart Parking System caters for both parking types, and it is built-in with an analytic data module. Consolidating the peak hours can help to optimize the bay's allotment for season parking to ease traffic and reduce wait time at the parking site."
Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group
He said, "To further reduce the unutilized season parking lots freed for casual parking during peak hours, it allows season parkers to notify parking operators about the availability. It is even better when integrated with TimeTec Smart Workforce System such as TimeTec TA for time attendance and TimeTec Leave for leave management. The system can auto-release the season parking lots when season parkers applied for leave, work from home or outstation, with the pre-consent agreement signed between season parkers and the parking operator at a certain discount rate for season pass renewal."
