ParkBlue Successfully Launched in Ohio and Indiana by TIBA Parking Systems, Enabling a Frictionless Parking Experience
Columbus, OH (November 14, 2018) – TIBA Parking Systems’ Bluetooth technology (BLE), ParkBlue, was successfully implemented in Ohio and Indiana for monthly transients at multiple sites.
Since July, hundreds of monthly users have utilized the first garages installed by Signature Control Systems in partnership with TIBA Parking Systems.
Monthly parkers at these locations now have the ability to gain frictionless access to the garage using their branded mobile app. As the driver approaches the entry and exit devices, the gate detects the mobile device and allows the parker into the garage by using the phone as the credential. Drivers can also access a secondary QR code by manually tapping their ParkBlue application on their phone if needed.
This not only offers convenience to the parker who no longer has to roll down their window and present an access credential, but also offers convenience to the owner and operator who does not have to purchase and distribute expensive access credentials which are continuously lost and transferred amongst other users.
This Bluetooth solution has also increased the throughput of the facility as less time is required in the lane to manually authenticate the driver.
Operators can benefit from the ease of dialing-in the sensor range of the ParkBlue device through the software so as not to detect other users in adjacent lanes or in the same vehicle.
“TIBA is thrilled to bring frictionless parking and better ease of use to monthly drivers,” stated John Whiteman, TIBA Executive Vice President of Sales. “We look forward to expanding upon ParkBlue to help more drivers navigate to specific open spaces throughout different lots, assisting garage operators with managing overflow traffic, and increasing driver data through a robust business intelligence platform.”
“We are excited to bring TIBA’s Bluetooth enabled access app to North America via these first two installations,” stated John Bambey, Vice President at Signature Control Systems. “It’s great to be able to provide our customers and parkers with this level of industry leading technology and ease of access.”

TIBA Launches ParkBlue – Parking Access for any Parking Garage
COLUMBUS, OHIO (March 13th, 2018) – TIBA Parking Systems is proud to announce the immediate availability of ParkBlue; a service and application to enable cloud-based management of parking garages, frictionless physical access to parking garages on any PARCS system and a mobile application, as well as an SDK to facilitate reservation, navigation and payment for parking. With frontend Bluetooth and LPR capabilities and backend Business Intelligence tools, ParkBlue is positioned to disrupt traditional access control and parking in cities across the globe.
With ParkBlue, parking operators will be able to create a cloud-based service that enables them to convert transient clients to registered users. Drivers will be able to register, reserve, navigate and pay for parking through a user friendly, intuitive application. Upon arrival at the parking garage, drivers will be able to open the barrier gate regardless of the actual PARCS technology deployed. Upon exit, the driver’s preregistered account will be charged automatically for parking. Operators will be able to manage and communicate with drivers, create a marketing database for campaign management and maximize the revenue generated from each facility and location. ParkBlue also helps smart cities become even smarter by presenting a full view of parking availability and improves the residents driving and parking experience.
The ParkBlue Suite consists of three main components.
- A cloud-based management system that shows parking availability, reservations, payment and billing, customer management for campaigns, ads and coupons, and loyalty programs. In addition, the management system provides substantial benefits to operators including Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics, spill-over management between the operator’s facilities, driver information analysis, dynamic pricing, and personalised campaigns.
- Bluetooth enabled IoT devices for authentication, empowering drivers to securely open barrier gates, start/stop parking time and finalize payment. Operators will benefit from rapid installation and seamless authentication of drivers.
- The mobile application and SDK allow operators to white-label their own service and use it to register drivers with appropriate identification and payment method. Operators will be able to increase brand awareness, improve occupancy, and communicate with the driver throughout the experience. The SDK allows full integration with third party mobile apps as well as with parking
