SKIDATA and Schneider Electric Launch Partnership to Provide Seamless EV Solution for Parking Owners and Operators

 

 

 

  • “Park, Plug, and Pay” strategic partnership helps bridge the gap for EV owners adding convenient charging opportunities where they are needed most
  • Single scalable solution allows owners and operators to incorporate EV charging to differentiate their locations and increase revenue
  • Integration offers drivers the convenience of charging vehicles during a parking session, paying for charging and parking in one transaction

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (December 1, 2021)– SKIDATA, the world leader in parking access and revenue management, and Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced a partnership to provide a seamless EV charging solution for parking managers and their customers as electric vehicle (EV) adoption becomes more widespread. Through this partnership, which includes Schneider Electric’s extensive network of partners, parking owners and operators will have access to a single-source integrated EV solution that will include EV charging equipment and infrastructure, as well as a payment platform that allows drivers to pay for charging as part of their parking transaction.

 

“The automobile’s electric future is just around the corner, and parking facilities will play the leading role in providing charging and in the long term future we see, in terms of Parking Structures, that they become a critical part of the whole USA transportation and energy delivery systems through initiatives like Microgrids / Solar and Vehicle to Grid technologies” said Darrell Smithson, President NAM for SKIDATA. “Through this partnership we’ll be able to provide parking owners and operators a one-stop EV solution that will allow them to offer their customers seamless charging and payment. It will make EV charging incredibly simple and convenient.”

 

SKIDATA is the leading supplier of parking management equipment in the USA to airports, public transportation, cities, shopping, sports, and events. 14 entities with over 175 parking locations have been identified for the first round of EVSE deployment.

 

As part of this partnership, Schneider Electric will create an individualized EV infrastructure plan for the parking facility and provide the infrastructure for each site. EV Connect will bring the charging stations onto its network to provide continuous monitoring, and the charging units will be integrated into SKIDATA’s payment platform for a single point of interaction for parkers.  This single scalable solution will allow parking owners and operators to easily integrate EV charging, differentiating themselves from competitors and opening a new revenue source to strengthen their business.

 

“Widespread electrification of transportation is elemental to decarbonizing, and as the most sustainable company in the world,  we are proud to partner with leaders like SKIDATA helping us to transform into a new electric world. Establishing new innovative business models in the parking industry will further enable electrification and ease friction in user experience ,” said Ashley Horvat, VP Head of eMobility, North America, Schneider Electric. “As parking owners and operators look to embrace EV charging, our solutions will allow them to meet the changing needs of their customers, and provides a competitive advantage that elevates their locations above their competition with this simple “Park, Plug, & Pay” package.

 

“To maximize the benefits and opportunities presented by the electrification of transportation, charging infrastructure must be easy for parking lot operators and management companies,” says Patrick Macdonald-King, chief operating officer at EV Connect. “We are thrilled to put our experience to work in the deployment and management of EV charging infrastructure with SKIDATA and Schneider Electric. The ability to make seamless integrations with parking lot and load management systems simple is central to preparing parking owners and operators for an electrified future.”

Touchless Entry and Exit, License Plate Recognition Make Airport Parking Safer and Easier

 

 

BURLINGAME, CA  – SKIDATA, the world leader in parking access and revenue management, is transforming the parking experience at Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) with the addition of state-of-the-art parking technology. The new frictionless parking suite will use an advanced parking access & revenue control system (PARCS), License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, and other parking management tools to improve the user experience.

 

“SJC was looking to improve their operation and make the parking experience not only more user-friendly, but also more efficient and effective to operate,” said Chris McKenty, Head of Sales, North America for SKIDATA.  “We were able to work with airport executives to design a solution that will make parking at the airport much more convenient, while dramatically improving parking operations, both immediately and for years to come,”

 

SJC’s new frictionless parking suite includes SKIDATA’s market leading Power.Gate system. The Power.Gates will be outfitted with License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology and all peripherals (Barcode Readers, HID, AVI, Intercom, Lighted Barrier Arms) in a total of 45 lanes. The new technology suite will provide easy touch free access to all parking levels for frequent and occasional travelers. The system will also include 15 SKiosk Smart Parking credit card machines and a number of SKIDATA Sweb Services, including Control, Validate, Reports, and a new Wayfinding Package that will include all new signs.

 

“A stress-free trip begins with planning at home,” said SJC Assistant Director of Aviation, Judy Ross. “This new online parking reservation system takes the worry out of airport parking, offering travelers more control over their planning, and providing a more seamless total airport experience. Pandemic recovery has already included new infrastructure, new amenities, and new technologies for our customers, and our team and partners continue to show great dedication to delivering tools supporting the return to travel. This is a testament to the strength of our resilience, and as we all move forward and more people return to the skies, this new online tool will help to better navigate the travel process.”

 

For improved management, the new system will feature a fully integrated “Command Center” offering unprecedented oversight capability to managers and operators, allowing them to observe and manage the entire system from a single command point.  The system will also be integrated with SJC’s existing Transcore AVI (automatic vehicle identification) system and with Chauntry’s Parkspace reservations platform.

SKIDATA Partners with Openpath To Offer

Smartphone Access Capabilities to Parking Facilities

 

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (April 29, 2021) – SKIDATA, the world leader in parking access and revenue management, today announced a new technology integration partnership with Openpath, a leader in touchless, modern access control, and workplace safety automation. Through this partnership, Openpath’s groundbreaking touchless and mobile access control technology will be integrated into SKIDATA’s parking access and revenue control equipment to permit drivers to enter and exit SKIDATA-equipped parking facilities, using their Openpath credentials.

 

“We are excited to be partnering with Openpath,” said Darrell Smithson, President, North America of SKIDATA. “SKIDATA already makes the world’s most reliable and user-friendly parking equipment. The addition of Openpath’s technology will improve the customer experience by providing seamless entry into parking facilities.

 

“SKIDATA has always led the way when it comes to introducing new technological capabilities to the parking industry,” continued Smithson. “This partnership will help ensure that SKIDATA will continue to lead the way in providing smart city infrastructure.”

 

The addition of Openpath’s technology, which provides touchless and mobile access via Bluetooth, Wi-fi, and LTE, to SKIDATA equipment will permit drivers to access SKIDATA-equipped parking facilities with their smartphones and other personal devices, as well as via license plate recognition (LPR), allowing drivers to enter and exit parking garages quickly and conveniently without having to stop and swipe a card or reach out of their vehicle to validate parking access. When drivers approach the parking facility, they can gain access via the SKIDATA app on their personal devices. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and LTE access are most useful for managing permit parking, and the technology is perfect for parking owners and organizations who offer permit parking, including residential facilities, office complexes, universities, hospitals, airports, special events parking, and stand-alone parking garages.

 

“With this integration, we are excited to further demonstrate how Openpath’s seamless user experience extends beyond just the four walls of a building.  Providing safety and simplicity for users throughout their day; from the moment their vehicle enters the parking garage, to the doors, elevators, and turnstiles they use in repetition. Openpath’s technology enables a completely touchless experience for tenants and guests and eliminates the need for users to juggle multiple apps or credentials to get where they are going. Our mission is always to deliver end-to-end security while reducing friction, and this integration is another great example of that,” said James Segil, President and Co-Founder of Openpath.

Tampa – SKIDATA, the world leader in parking access and revenue management, has been selected to create frictionless parking suites for three parking garages owned by Strategic Property Partners (SPP) in Water Street Tampa, a new mixed-use development in downtown Tampa. The advanced system will offer seamless license plate recognition (LPR) capability by allowing exiting without stopping to pay. The SPP-owned garages provide parking to residents, employees, and patrons of the Water Street Tampa neighborhood, as well as fans attending events at nearby Amalie Arena.

 

“We are excited to be partnering with Strategic Property Partners to create this state-of-the-art parking revenue technology for their Water Street Tampa garages,” said Blair Taylor, Vice president of Business Development for SKIDATA’s Southeast region. “This technology will provide a much more user-friendly parking experience for visitors to Tampa’s thriving downtown and waterfront.”

SKIDATA turns “access” into a warm welcome

February 01, 2021

 

 

SKIDATA turns “access” into a warm welcome

 

 

David Luken, the CEO of SKIDATA, discusses the repositioning of the Austrian based company and the advantages the company’s new purpose provides their customers

 

 

Salzburg, February 1st, 2021: In order to place even more focus on the needs and requirements of end customers, and stay true to SKIDATA’s core value of exceeding their customer needs, SKIDATA has recently defined a new purpose: “We change the World of welcoming people”. This serves as a promise to turn access into a warm welcome while fulfilling end customers’ essential need for convenience and safety in all situations. With the worldwide launch of the brand campaign in January 2021, SKIDATA will strengthen its position as the no. 1 access control partner and advisor for operators of parking facilities, mountain destinations, amusement parks and stadia.

Mr. Luken, why has SKIDATA launched the new brand campaign now?

David Luken: SKIDATA is at the forefront of driving innovation in its core customer segments. We recognize that the world is changing rapidly, accelerated in many ways due to Covid-19, and therefore our customers’ needs are changing. As the global leader in access and revenue management solutions, we aim to stay at the forefront of this change. Since it is key for our customers, our organization and employees to all have a common understanding of purpose, we asked ourselves the question: Why are we doing this? The answer we came up with is, ‘We change the world of welcoming people’. This perfectly encompasses both our longstanding commitment to innovation while emphasizing our increased focus on the end-customer experience. A friendly welcome is the first step to a successful customer journey. For example, the perfect ski day starts without waiting in line because you already booked your ski pass on the go allowing you to head straight to the lift with your ski pass on your phone. We strive to achieve these perfect ‘welcomes’ by partnering with our customers to assure skiers, fans, families and parkers have a fantastic start to their experience. To live up to this promise SKIDATA is becoming a more agile, globally connected organization giving us the ability to adapt to dynamic market environments.

What is the meaning of “We change the world of welcoming people”?

David Luken: Our company purpose summarizes SKIDATA’s DNA and represents the reason why the company and we, as the SKIDATA family, exist: We are more than a technology company, we strive to understand the needs of customers’ customer – and we satisfy these needs with an agile approach. For us the meaning of ‘we’ is important. ‘We’ does not mean SKIDATA alone. ‘We’ means the combined effort of our customers, our strategic partners and SKIDATA as an organization – working together – to transform access’ into a ‘warm welcome’. It is this collective effort which truly improves end-customer value. As the world’s leading provider of access and revenue management solutions, we serve nearly 100 countries working towards our local customer’s goals. This presence enables us to reinforce our customers’ trust by providing world-class on-site service. With our consultative approach and our leading cloud-based infrastructure, we are changing the way innovative solutions are delivered to our customers. We are customer-focused and human-centered advisors offering our customers complete solutions in co- operation with best of breed partners through a comprehensive range of interfaces and integrations.

How do your business customers – the operators of parking facilities, mountain destinations, amusement parks or stadia – benefit from your new purpose?

David Luken: What is the best way to say “welcome”? Over the past few years, demand for web-based, safe access in parking facilities, skiing destinations and event venues has increased – and Covid-19 has accelerated this trend. SKIDATA provides solutions for future customer requirements derived from relevant industry trends such as transition to the cloud, sustainability and increased security. By offering turnkey, integrated solutions for our customers, we establish a seamless experience to welcome end users to the respective facility. By welcoming every user, we help increase recurring visits and grow business for operators which is how we ultimately deliver true value in the eyes of our customers.

How do the end customers benefit from your solutions?

David Luken: The end customer’s behavior is the intrinsic driver of our innovations. That’s why we literally take the driver’s seat: What is important for the end customers? What is convenient for them? Everybody wants to feel welcome. Everybody wants transactions to be convenient. And everybody wants to feel safe. Our solutions exactly fulfill these needs. From purchasing your ticket online, to getting seamless access into a venue, to having the possibility to recharge one’s EV during a city tour, to using a smartphone to pay for your parking; all these contribute to convenience and feeling welcome and safe.

How does SKIDATA manage the transformation to the purpose “We change the world of welcoming people”?

David Luken: There are multiple examples where we’ve already innovated with the end customers in mind. From creating the first hands-free access for skiing resorts more than 40 years ago to touch free parking experiences and the world’s first NFC-ticket access to stadiums. So, in many ways we’ve been living this purpose for as long as we’ve been around. Going forward we’ll continue to transform our processes so that we’re better positioned to further improve the way people are welcomed. We already have a variety of new ways to enhance the entry experience in the pipeline. For example, we’re revolutionizing the ski-experience with the world’s first mobile access solution which allows skiers purchase their lift ticket and access the ski resort using just their smartphone.

SKIDATA manages complex projects throughout the world, aiming to increase our end-customers’ convenience and safety and optimize operators’ revenues. We work on a global and broad scope, but the motivation and collective mindset of all colleagues at SKIDATA is to change the world of welcoming people – every day.

Come and see how we change the world of welcoming people

San Francisco, CA – SKIDATA, the world leader in parking access and revenue management, has been selected by the San Francisco Municipal Transit Authority (SFMT) to create and install a state-of-the-art parking technology suite for the 5th & Mission Parking Garage. The advanced parking technology suite will provide safe and convenient touchless parking payment for the 2,585-space garage. Located across the street from Bloomingdales and the Westfield Shopping Center, the 5th & Mission Parking Garage is the largest parking facility owned and operated by the SFMT.

 

“SKIDATA did a great job creating a technology suite that will make the 5th & Mission garage San Francisco’s most convenient parking facility,” said Ted Graff, Parking Director for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.  “And at a time when San Francisco, like the rest of the United States, is impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the parking suite’s touchless payment elements will also provide the safest, healthiest way to pay for parking.” 

 

The new parking technology suite features 17 lanes of power gates to assure quick, convenient entry and egress. This state-of-the-art system also includes 10 pay-on-foot machines and four cashier stations. Parkers can conveniently pay for parking before returning to their vehicles and then insert the payment ticket into access and revenue control equipment located at exits. 

 

The parking technology suite also includes 30 closed circuit security cameras and an intercom system at the garage’s exits so parkers can instantly reach an Impark customer service representative if they experience any issues upon exiting. License plate recognition (LPR) equipment is located at entries and exits to provide enhanced revenue security.

“We are excited to be partnering with the City of Tampa to create this state-of-the-art parking revenue technology,” said Alex Franco, business development manager for SKIDATA’s Southeast region. “This technology will provide a much more user-friendly parking experience, permitting LPR billing at entry and then allowing the driver to exit without stopping to pay at exits.”

 

The SKIDATA parking technology suite will manage over 8,500 parking spaces in 9 garages located across the city. It will feature automated access control gates in all 83 lanes, and license plate recognition (LPR) cameras in 70 entrance and exit lanes. Most garages will also have SKIDATA’s unique Dashboard.Gate informational signage technology to inform parkers of parking rates, availability, and other important information. The system will be powered SKIDATA’s cloud-based sweb.Control technology, which will allow city parking administrators to manage the parking system or individual garages remotely, from anyplace.
