Jerome, AZ, Makes Unanimous Decision to Implement Flowbird’s Parking Management System

Jerome, AZ, Makes Unanimous Decision to Implement Flowbird’s Parking Management System




Tourism community to soon see congestion relief and infrastructure improvements




Moorestown, NJ – The Town of Jerome, Arizona, has partnered with Flowbird Group to launch a new pay-by-plate parking system to manage and support its long-term economic vitality. On July 25th, Jerome Town Council voted unanimously to procure Flowbird’s Strada smart pay stations and implement Flowbird’s mobile parking app as a means for raising infrastructure funds and expand public parking.



In addition to raising funds, council members identified the need for a more organized parking space. The Town of Jerome, a small tourism community, has been expanding rapidly in the last 5 years. Visitor parking began impinging upon neighborhood streets, generally intended for residents to park near their homes. The solution of Flowbird pay stations and the mobile app will bring flexible and dynamic management of parking rights and fees.


Council Members remarked on their long, exhaustive search for the right parking solution for Jerome, ultimately selecting Flowbird at the suggestion of Chief Allen Muma who reviewed Flowbird’s success in Flagstaff, AZ and Grand Rapids, MI. Flagstaff’s demanding parking system, in particular, consists of 100 Flowbird Strada pay stations and has had great success with Flowbird’s mobile payment app.


Jerome’s adoption of the Strada pay stations will bring modernization and ease-of-use to visiting and residential motorists. The pay stations are solar-powered and user-friendly with a large color display screen and customized interface. The entire system will be tailored to the town’s specific needs, functioning in pay-by-plate mode to accommodate special parking rates, providing printed receipts for motorists, and enforced by Jerome’s local police.


The exact locations of the new kiosks will be determined in the coming weeks.The cost to park has been set at $3.00 for up to four hours, or $5.00 to park all day. Fees will be in effect between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. Parking will remain free throughout parts of Main Street and the Town’s large parking lot that offers free shuttles to and from downtown on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.


Police Chief Allen Muma plans to follow suit with Flagstaff’s ‘friendly manner’ of rolling out the new pay stations, starting out first with warnings and keeping track of system abusers.


Currently, Flowbird supports over 40,000 parking pay stations for 600 customers throughout the U.S. This project allows the company to expand its presence in the Southwest where, in addition to Flagstaff, it currently partners with clients such as the City of Las Vegas (NV), Town of Springdale (UT), City of Santa Fe (NM), and the University of New Mexico.

ControlScan and Cybersecurity Insiders Release New Managed Detection and Response Research Report

ControlScan and Cybersecurity Insiders Release New Managed Detection and Response Research Report



Business leaders share their current cybersecurity challenges, as well as drivers for procuring managed security services to effectively address today’s advanced threats




ATLANTA, Sept. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ControlScan, a leader in managed security services specializing in compliance, detection and response, has collaborated withCybersecurity Insiders to produce an all-new industry research report. The 2019 Managed Detection and Response Report reveals current security program challenges and illustrates why and how organizations outsource for managed detection and response (MDR) as well as advanced endpoint security.

According to the report, more than half (53%) of businesses surveyed are managing their security programs entirely in-house. Of these, 41% said “speed of incident response issues” are a key business challenge. Moreover, this same group of respondents indicated they had not experienced a security incident in the past 12 months (as opposed to 23% for the entire survey sample), and, therefore, were potentially unaware of any past occurrences and/or active security threats.

“For most businesses, staying on top of today’s advanced security threats is a significant undertaking,” said Tom Callahan, director of MDR Operations, ControlScan. “We commissioned this research to better understand how companies are acknowledging and addressing these challenges.”

Altogether, survey respondents selected the following as their top three security operations challenges:

  • Cybersecurity skills shortage in-house (58%);
  • Cost and complexity of building in-house (49%); and
  • Lack of 24×7 security coverage (37%).

“Many businesses are just beginning to learn about managed detection and response services,” said Holger Schulze, CEO and founder of Cybersecurity Insiders. “MDR delivers value to the small and medium enterprise in particular, because internal resource constraints often limit their ability to spot and react to network intruders.”

Des Moines International Airport improves parking experience with new INDECT Parking Guidance System

Des Moines International Airport improves parking experience with new INDECT Parking Guidance System





DES MOINES, IA (September 16, 2019) INDECT USA today announces the successful installation of their premier ultrasonic parking guidance system at Des Moines International Airport, IOWA, with their local partner The Baker Group.



A total of 1398 individual sensors and 27 wayfinding signs were installed in the airport’s parking garage. The signs are strategically located at each decision-point in the garage and include easy-to-follow guidance for travelers with a disability.

LED RGB sensors are located above each parking spot and clearly identify each space as open (green), occupied (red) or handicapped (blue). The sensors are highly reliable and can be individually programmed to accommodate changing parking needs.

“The system at Des Moines International Airport has been expanded to include the counts from the outdoor parking lots. This way the INDECT system can track availability across the whole airport, not just the garage.” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA.

A huge 60” x 90” full color matrix screen was also installed at the garage entry. This sign not only displays the counts in the garage for each level and user group, it can be used to show advertising or other instructional information to visitors as they enter the garage.

“One of the other interesting things about Des Moines International Airport is that they are taking full advantage of the real-time data and analytics offered by the INDECT system.” said Fowler.

“The Airport is directly feeding the live parking data into their online parking tracker and providing real-time availability across all six parking lots. Travelers can see at a glance how many parking spots are available and whether the lot is still relatively roomy or nearing capacity.” he said.

“We often work with third-party developers to create parking apps that integrate the INDECT system with our client’s parking data but this time the Airport took the initiative and built their own… and it’s great!” Fowler enthused.

Since the installation of the full INDECT parking guidance system, the airport has received numerous comments and positive feedback from their customers. Drivers are spending less time searching for an available space and more time in the terminal.

In addition to enhanced customer satisfaction, increased flexibility and efficiency, and reduced carbon emissions, the INDECT parking guidance system is expected to significantly grow the airport’s parking revenue by increasing parking space usage.




INDECT is the leading provider of parking guidance systems. INDECT’s systems combine the most advanced parking space sensors with industry-leading data management technology to offer drivers a safer, more convenient parking experience while helping parking owners operate their parking assets more efficiently and profitably.

Once completed in 2023, the $2 billion transit hub will be the largest facility of its kind in the world with a vehicle leaving every two seconds at peak operations


Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) Commissioner Bea Hsu, BOAC Commissioner Gabriel Eshaghian, BOAC Vice President Valeria Velasco, BOAC President Sean Burton, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint, Councilmember Joe Buscaino, Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Mike Bonin, Deputy Mayor Billy Chun, Director of Economic Infrastructure -Office of Mayor Garcetti David Reich, LAWA Chief Operating Officer Justin Erbacci, LAWA Chief Development Officer Bernardo Gogna and LAX ConRAC Partners Project Executive Karl Schaefer. 

(Los Angeles, CA) Mayor Eric Garcetti broke ground today on the Consolidated Rent-A-Car (ConRAC) facility at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which will centralize rental car operations into one convenient location and offer a direct connection to the upcoming Automated People Mover (APM) train. The Mayor was joined at the ceremony by Councilmembers Mike Bonin and Joe Buscaino, Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) President Sean Burton, and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) CEO Deborah Flint, as well as community and labor leaders.


“We are building the world-class airport travelers need and deserve — and the Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility groundbreaking demonstrates how we’re keeping this promise,” said Mayor Garcetti. “Our city is doing so much more than building a parking structure — we are making an investment that will improve the traveling experience, reduce congestion in surrounding neighborhoods, and create middle-class careers for years to come.”


Since taking office, Mayor Garcetti has led a more than $14 billion transformation of LAX that began in 2009. Mayor Garcetti’s historic infrastructure investments have strengthened working families and the middle class. Under his leadership, unemployment has been cut in half while close to 200,000 new jobs have been created. Construction of the ConRAC is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs.


The 5.3 million square foot ConRAC facility will feature 18,000 parking stalls with 6,600 ready/return spaces, 10,000 idle vehicle storage spaces, and 1,100 rental car employee spaces as well as visitor parking. A Quick-Turn Around facility will also be on-site, allowing for fueling, washing, and light maintenance of rental car vehicles.

Mayor Eric Garcetti provides remarks during the groundbreaking ceremony.

Reducing congestion at LAX — as well as in surrounding communities — is at the heart of the ConRAC project. The consolidated facility will completely remove rental car shuttle traffic from the Central Terminal Area (CTA), which equates to 3,200 shuttle trips per day. The removal of the shuttles will improve traffic on the roadways and free up critical curbside boarding space in the CTA.


“This is a big step toward LAX becoming a world-class airport for travelers and a first-class neighbor to Westchester and Playa del Rey,” said Councilmember Mike Bonin. “Especially once it is connected to the new Automated People Mover, this new Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility will reduce the number of shuttles and vans navigating the Central Terminal Area and nearby neighborhoods, improving both local traffic and air quality. That is a big win and exciting progress to celebrate.”


“This has been a momentous year for LAX,” said Councilmember Joe Buscaino. “LAX continues to move full steam ahead with its $14 billion investment to create a fully transformed airport of the future. The ConRAC is just one of the many groundbreakings held this year which highlight the efforts LAX is making to improve passenger experience which increases tourism and improves our local economy.”


As the second largest rental car market among domestic airports, the ConRAC will improve and streamline the car rental process at LAX. The facility will be built with an eye to the future and designed to accommodate new and emerging vehicle types such as autonomous vehicles. Additionally, movable concrete barriers will allow for the quick reallocation of space as rental car companies’ market shares shift.


The ConRAC is an important component of the Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), which also includes an Automated People Mover train that will connect travelers directly to airport terminals and create new and convenient locations for passenger pick-up and drop-off outside the Central Terminal Area. Once completed in 2023, the APM will connect with L.A. Metro’s light rail system.

Rendering of the ConRAC Facility at night.

“The ConRAC Facility will provide a rental car experience worthy of a world-class airport,” said BOAC President Sean Burton. “This project doesn’t just benefit those renting cars — it benefits the local economy and community through the creation of 1,000 jobs and by relieving vehicle congestion on the roads in and around LAX.”


“We are future-proofing everything we build at LAX,” said Deborah Flint, CEO, LAWA. “Every project under construction or on the drawing board will meet our needs now and be capable of adapting to new technology and demands. The ConRAC Facility is a prime example of how to future-proof so we can protect our investments.”


On October 26, 2018, the Los Angeles City Council approved an approximately $2 billion public-private partnership between LAWA and LAX ConRAC Partners (LAXCP), with LAXCP designing, building, financing, operating, and maintaining the facility for a 28-year period. LAXCP has committed to 30% local hiring, which exceeds local hiring requirements, and together with LAWA is developing opportunities for local small businesses. LAXCP has also agreed to sponsor 100 new, local apprentices and feature all-union labor on the ConRAC facility.


“Collectively, the LAXCP team has extensive experience designing, building, and operating nearly 30 ConRACs domestically and internationally,” said Karl Schaefer, LAXCP Project Executive. “We are proud to use our shared know how to help LAWA create a top tier experience for the traveling public at LAX while we honor our commitment to provide local hire economic opportunities and environmental sustainability.”


Mayor Garcetti has made sustainability a priority of his administration. The ConRAC facility is designed to reflect Los Angeles’ standing as one of the world’s leading sustainable cities and will include native drought-tolerant landscaping, reclaimed water usage, more than 200 Level 2 electric vehicle chargers, and a solar farm generating over 8,400 megawatt hours annually.
