Live Nation slashes Parking Wait Time & Boosts Profits With ParkHub
In 2016, Michael Hughes, parking director at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, was tasked to move all parking services in-house to give Live Nation customers a more streamlined experience with parking. The goal of this decision was to optimize services and cut costs. ParkHub helped them do just that. With the assistance of Prime (our handheld point of sale mobile device) and Portal (our cloud-based dashboard that provides real-time information) patron wait times and internal theft decreased, while parking and concession profits increased.
Since on-boarding in April 2016, Hughes said that orientation with ParkHub was very hands on. He said that 75% of sales were from credit cards, and that eventually normalized to around 10-15% for other events.
Additionally, Hughes said that the business intelligence suite was a major asset. Real-time reporting greatly aided the parking operators. “Being able to look at that is huge on my end so I know what to put in at that place and time,” he said. “The ParkHub team were hands on and just as much as part of the team as anyone as far as it goes in my mind,” Hughes said. “They rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty, and that’s what operations is about.”
Management gained access to the business intelligence suite, a parking intelligence system which connects directly to the mobile point-of-sale device. The business intelligence suite dashboard enables users to view and organize parking transactions by time, payment method, lot, or attendant during and after events. It also provides real-time insight into lot occupancy and per-lot revenue which empowers venue operators to enforce accountability with each of their attendants.
