AMERICAN AIRLINES CENTER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH PARKHUB.COM TO ENABLE CREDIT CARD PAYMENT CAPABILITY AT ALL PARKING LOTS
Moving forward, parking for your favorite sports game or concert just got easier
DALLAS, March 4, 2015 – American Airlines Center, the premier event center ranked #4 in the U.S. and #9 in the world by Venues Today in 2014, is proud to announce their partnership with ParkHub.com to rollout their new mobile point-of-sale program: “PRIME” by ParkHub.com. Always on the cutting edge of technology integration, American Airlines Center recognized the intrinsic value of ParkHub.com’s software and hardware solution that enables their attendants to not only validate all pre-purchased parking and season ticket holders’ passes via Ticketmaster, but, more importantly, accept all major credit cards in all their parking lots.
This functionality is accomplished from a handheld unit slightly larger than a pack of cards.
Craig Courson, Executive Vice President and CFO at American Airlines Center, stated that he, “…look[s] forward to exploring other vertical marketing opportunities that ParkHub.com’s platform supports in an effort to maximize the system and our revenue potential. I have no doubt that ParkHub.com will continue to deliver.”
What patrons of American Airlines Center may be aware of is that this new technology has been in effect since January 5th of this year. Mr. Courson and his colleagues wasted no time in implementing PRIME, going through the transition and training process in the middle of the Stars’ and Mavericks’ seasons. Speaking on ParkHub.com’s process, Courson stated, “They have gone above and beyond to make this a seamless and enjoyable experience.”
American Airlines Center is excited to notify their attendees that from now on, their lots will be accepting credit cards.
It comes as no surprise that American Airlines Center and ParkHub.com, a Dallas-based technology company and Ticketmaster Certified Partner, will be responsible for turning what traditionally was an analog and antiquated process into a speedy digital exchange. This is parking for the 21st century, and American Airlines Center patrons will have front row seats for everything that it entails; from brand new parking garages, less time in traffic and lines, and new apps created specifically for American Airlines Center.
