IPI 2018: SKIDATA launches the sweb®Platform, a unique cloud based parking management-system
Salzburg / Florida, June 1, 2018. IPI, the world’s largest educational and networking event for parking professionals, is all about the latest trends and topics in the industry. From June 3 to 6, 2018, SKIDATA presents its brand new sweb Platform. The fully cloud based concept enables parking operators to increase revenues with complementary business ideas like online bookings and validations. Through full centralization of operations via the sweb Platform operation costs are reduced significantly. And thanks to its modular and unmatched interface concept, the sweb Platform allows perfect individualization.
A one stop solution that still manages to be flexible – that’s what makes sweb Platform unique. Like a digital set of building blocks, a variety of multi-functional web-based services and interfaces are available to choose from – from reporting across car-parks, online reservations and ticket validation solutions, to customer loyalty programs and much more. Be it for a single car park or a group of parking facilities, operators have the tools they need to create a customized solution that meets their specific requirements. On top of that, open interfaces enable rapid integration of third-party systems providing the maximum degree of flexibility. Additional solutions can be integrated at a later date allowing the SKIDATA Parking Facility Management System evolve to meet future demands.
Stay in the driver’s seat
“Operators profit from the sweb Platform and the multitude of advantages the SKIDATA solutions provide, without having to give up their independence and products from other companies,” explains Florian Schneeberger, SKIDATA Vice President Business Line Management & Innovation.
Despite having different business partners, operators maintain central control over all their business processes since everything runs on the cloud-based SKIDATA platform. Car park operators gain the ability to consolidate data from not only all SKIDATA sales channels, but also external sales channels, allowing optimize the use of their facility thereby increasing occupancy rates and ultimately revenue. “With central monitoring, parking facilities can keep a constant eye on operations from anywhere they choose, making efficient control, analysis and optimization possible. The customer data which is generated supplies valuable information for targeted marketing activities. On top of that, reliable data management and data visualization lead to even more efficiency.
All services can be accessed anytime and from anywhere – on a local PC or remotely from a smart phone or tablet.” That’s not only practical, but also reduces operating expenditures.
