"With more parking operators, municipalities and universities managing both on-street and off-street parking, solutions that not only address back-end operational needs but strengthen the front-end consumer relationship and experience are in demand," said Larry Feuer, President and CEO of Amano McGann. "As we looked across the market at the next generation technologies that best complement the Amano portfolio, we found Streetline to be the most compelling fit—offering a fully integrated platform that addresses the needs across private operators, municipalities, universities, and consumers. This partnership is yet another example of how Amano continues to innovate to transform parking operations and gives us a complete, next generation parking automation solution that again raises the bar."
Next generation parking solutions that bring together the best in counting equipment and infrastructure with market leading analytics, reporting applications, and consumer-facing solutions are in demand. With over 5,000 installations in North America alone, Amano has the largest off-street parking footprint in the industry. Streetline complements Amano's market leadership with an award-winning portfolio of products including ParkSight for analytics and reporting, ParkEdge for garage and lot operators, and Parker for consumer guidance.
The joint Amano/Streetline solution for off-street garage and lot operators will integrate real-time data from Amano with Streetline garage and consumer applications, providing both operators and consumers rich new data to enhance revenue management and consumer services.
For customers managing on-street parking the joint Amano/Streetline solution will leverage Streetline sensor network technology and applications, including ParkSight with advanced analytics and Amano's on-street parking management capability and electronic signage.
"There's a growing demand for a holistic view of the entire parking process...from a facility's operation to a consumer's experience...from on-street to off-street," said Zia Yusuf, President and CEO of Streetline, Inc. "The joint solutions from Amano and Streetline will give parking operators, municipalities, and universities a comprehensive view of their parking operations and provide a means to offer advanced consumer-facing differentiators such as signage, way-finding applications, guidance via in-car navigation or even special offers and reservation capabilities.
