The partnership offers a contactless, efficient parking experience for safety-conscious drivers coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic. The integrated solution is set to launch at the University of Arizona this season and will be rolled out to other university campuses, sports stadiums, and state parks across the United States to help safely park returning fans and guests.

“The University of Arizona places a high priority on providing a safe experience for our customers attending special events on campus and our staff who are working those events,” said University of Arizona’s Executive Director, Jim Sayre. “We are excited to launch this new, contactless, parking payment option.”

Our partnership with Honk provides an immediate avenue to achieve this, while our overall collaboration will ultimately help pave the future of parking transactions.

The coronavirus outbreak has highlighted the need for services that reduce physical contact. Honk and ParkHub’s partnership leverages both companies’ best-in-class technologies to give drivers greater access and control over parking opportunities. With Honk’s mobile application, drivers can safely and efficiently map out and select their parking locations and conveniently pay for parking in advance on their smartphones.

As part of the partnership, the companies will share parking inventory across their platforms, which will continue to develop ParkHub’s global distribution system for parking, ParkHub Network.

Spectra Partners with ParkHub to Offer Touchless Payments to Venues Across North America

 

 

 

Leading B2B Parking Technology Provider Becomes Official Parking Technology Partner as 190 Spectra-managed Venues Gear Up to Reopen

 

 

 

 

DALLAS, June 3, 2020  — As live entertainment venues across North America begin preparations to reopen, Spectra, an industry leader in venue management, hospitality, and partnerships, today announced a multi-year partnership with ParkHub, the leading B2B parking technology provider. As Spectra’s Official Parking Technology Partner, ParkHub will help venues meet the growing demand for contactless guest experiences.

ParkHub’s technology promotes contactless payments, streamlines the parking experience for fans and staff, and provides rich data insights at a venue-level. The company’s mobile point-of-sale device accepts credit card and mobile payments and authenticates prepaid parking passes on the spot. All transactions are stored in Suite, ParkHub’s business intelligence platform, which provides real-time operational and transactional data, and robust analytics.

“When we first initiated our partnership with ParkHub, the focus was on upgrading the guest experience at our venues and better understanding the parking data to improve operations,” Bryan Furey, Spectra’s senior vice president of partnerships, said. “The beauty of building strategic partnerships is that they can quickly evolve to help overcome unexpected business challenges together. Now that we are in the midst of a global pandemic, our new parking technology partner can play a vital role in helping us address a major customer touchpoint. We’re eager to get more of our buildings online with ParkHub as the venue teams prepare and execute their reopening strategies.”

George Baker Sr., founder and CEO of ParkHub, said: “The COVID-19 crisis has caused venues to reconsider operations at every stage of the customer journey. Optimizing the parking experience – which is often the fan’s first impression of service at an event – is more critical now than ever before. Spectra shares our commitment to promoting safer, more efficient processes, and we are eager to support their partners during this pivotal time.”

Spectra-operated Subaru Park, an 18,500-seat Major League Soccer stadium just outside Philadelphia, has already enlisted ParkHub to provide visibility into their parking operations and refine the fan arrival process. ParkHub’s real-time integration with Paciolan, Subaru Park’s ticketing partner, allows for a seamless journey from purchasing tickets on a smartphone to arriving at the stadium. ParkHub’s technology integrates with many ticketing and prepaid parking providers and currently serves over 300 premier entertainment venues, professional sports teams, universities, and state parks across the United States.

Spectra recently incorporated ParkHub’s integrated solutions into its company-wide “Together AGAIN!” reopening plan, which was provided to each of Spectra’s 190 venues to guide their individual reopening strategies.

“Spectra-managed venues now have access to parking technology that simultaneously reduces the interaction between guests and staff and maximizes the efficiency of the guest entrance process,” Mike Scanlon, Spectra’s senior vice president of arenas and stadiums, said. “On top of that, our General Managers will have access to important parking data, coupled with potential integration into other systems–like ticketing, that will inform important operational decisions.”

Spectra currently operates 76 arenas, 59 convention centers, and 50 stadiums, including Cotton Bowl at Dallas Fair Park, Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas, Santa Clara Convention Center, Miami Beach Convention Center, Atlantic City Convention Center, and Boardwalk Hall, Subaru Park, PPL Center, Cross Insurance Arena, and XL Center.

ParkHub and SpotHero Team Up to Promote a Contactless Event Parking Experience

 

 

Leading parking platforms collaborate to help venues facilitate touch-free payments, streamline operations, and leverage actionable arrival data

 

DALLAS and CHICAGO, May 26, 2020  — ParkHub and SpotHero, leaders in digital parking solutions, have joined forces to promote a contactless, frictionless parking experience for fans and guests. The companies’ integrated technology solution allows venues to sell parking in advance of events, swiftly authenticate digital passes onsite, and manage parking demand during operations. As part of the promotion, SpotHero is offering ParkHub clients up to 50% off their standard rate for a limited time.

“Due to the pandemic, contactless services have transitioned from a convenience to a considerable necessity,” said George Baker Sr., CEO of ParkHub. “We are eager to work with SpotHero to incentivize this pivot in parking operations. Through collaboration, we can protect our partner’s returning customers and staff, and proactively drive value to venues as they plan to reopen.”

Over a year before the COVID-19 crisis took hold, ParkHub and SpotHero executed a long-term partnership to improve the parking experience for consumers across the United States. By integrating platforms, the companies established a seamless, end-to-end parking experience that has been adopted by Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals, Major League Basketball’s Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks; National Hockey League’s Chicago Blackhawks, and National Football League’s Ravens, through SP+ Baltimore.

ParkHub’s market-leading technology is currently used by over 300 professional sports teams, entertainment venues, universities, and state parks. The company’s mobile point-of-sale device scans prepaid parking passes and offers digital payment options on site. All transactions are sent to ParkHub’s business intelligence system, Suite, which provides real-time data insights and robust analytics on demand.

SpotHero’s top-tier parking reservation platform allows customers to find and pay for parking spots in advance. SpotHero’s digital parking passes are validated by ParkHub’s mobile point-of-sale devices onsite, providing a seamless, touch-free parking experience and instant access control. By implementing prepaid parking options, venues prevent customers and staff members from handling cash. Additionally, data has shown that efficient parking processes help boost concession revenue as fans arrive earlier and have more time to enjoy services inside the venue.

“SpotHero’s seamless reservation platform in partnership with ParkHub enables us to offer an end-to-end contactless parking solution for venues and their guests,” said Elan Mosbacher, Senior Vice President of Strategy & Operations, SpotHero. “We’re thrilled to partner with ParkHub to bring peace of mind to millions of drivers, event-goers, and venue staff as they return to the stands.”

This week, on Thursday, May 28th, at 3 pm CST, ParkHub and SpotHero are offering a free webinar to provide timely insights on how businesses can implement contactless, frictionless parking operations in the aftermath of the pandemic. Register at this link.
