Park Place Launches Ballparc Solutions For Event And Enforcement In Columbus Market
New platforms bring efficiency and convenience
Ballparc is pleased to announce the rollout of its solutions with Park Place Parking in the operator’s Columbus, Ohio market. Ballparc Event, a versatile mobile point-of-sale for parking, will help Park Place provide a more convenient event parking experience to the Columbus community. The cloud-based system allows Park Place to offer guests a variety of payment methods, including credit cards, cash, prepaid parking reservations, and VIP lists. The new system facilitates a faster transaction time which will promote better traffic flow with less congestion. Management will also be able to make game-time adjustments with real-time visibility into space inventory during events to help navigate consumers to the right parking spot.
In addition, Park Place will use Ballparc’s smarter citation management platform, Enforcement, to patrol and manage their non-event operations. The system will allow Park Place to run their operation efficiently by having all paid vehicle information in the palm of their hand. Additionally, the system offers violators the ability to communicate with Park Place, review the citation details, and pay the offense from the same website online.
“Park Place is excited to partner with the Ballparc team to improve customer service in the Columbus, Ohio market,” said Shawn Compton, Park Place General Manager. “Park Place prides itself on bringing ingenuity, resourcefulness, and vision to our customers and clients. It is great to know that the Ballparc team shares our values and we look forward to continued success.”
“Our goal has always been to use our technology to make parking a painless process, from both the operator and the consumer standpoint, and that’s what we’re doing here.” “We’re thrilled to partner with Park Place to bring more efficient, convenient parking to the Columbus market”, said Ballparc CEO Taylor Chapman.
Ballparc’s handheld solutions help parking operators, municipalities, and event venues of all sizes run streamlined operations that maximize customer experience and revenue.
