Concord Parking Launches New SMRTpass Solution in Kwantlen Polytechnic University

New Partnerships in the Higher Education Market


Burnaby, BC – Concord Parking is now providing parking enforcement and parking management services for Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) on four of its campuses in British Columbia: Richmond, Surrey, Cloverdale, and Langley.

KPU has become the flagship client of Concord’s new SMRTpass technology, which lets users quickly pay for parking or validate their license plate using only QR codes without having to download an app. As part of the Concord CTRL parking management software, this has proven to be an ideal solution for KPU’s parking challenges.

“We were able to understand the challenges and opportunities of managing parking services for students, faculty, staff, and visitors across multiple KPU campus locations. A successful parking program requires a modern, efficient operation leveraging the latest in parking innovation and technology. Working in partnership with KPU, we successfully deliver a superior parking management program focused on exceptional user experience, efficiency, and revenue maximization,” said Concord’s Director of Product Innovation, Marc Postlethwaite.

Concord Parking is an advocate for education and professional development. As part of their commitment to Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Concord Parking will sponsor a scholarship award for a program of KPU’s choosing. With this exciting new partnership, Concord Parking is looking forward to continuing to expand its footprint in the higher education market.
