A parking policy helps optimise the management of your car park by implementing several solutions and features in response to the complexity of the problem encountered. Generally speaking, this management policy makes it possible to streamline vehicle traffic either upstream or inside the car park.
In order to apply a parking policy in the rules of the art, first of all, it is essential to know the criteria of the parking needs. These criteria are as follows:
► Total number of workers (and visitors)
► Number of workers (and visitors) driving to work
► Vehicle occupancy rate
However, it is essential to understand that the demand for parking is constantly evolving, so it is necessary to regularly re-evaluate its parking policy, to be able to adapt and to show flexibility in its implementation (monitoring, evaluation, measurements, corrections, adaptations).
Its application through technology.
The implementation of a parking policy suggests most often the use of technology since it allows to analyse the daily tasks of the users in a more concrete and optimal way. As a result, parking is a trivial task, but it has several driving effects for which decisions must be made on the basis of concrete and relevant data.
