In this session, you will:

  1. Get an overview of rideshare’s role in the mobility landscape, now and in the future
  2. Learn how you can use technology to compete with rideshare in terms of convenience and ease-of-use
  3. Explore the question, “rideshare has changed consumer behavior, so how does parking need to evolve?"

Caesars New Paid Parking System: A Case Study in Total Parking Integration

Wednesday, October 24, 4:45 pm - 5:45 pm

Large manufacturers are faced with the difficult task of simplifying the ever evolving PARCS arena in the resort and casino markets.

To do this, PARCS manufactures must to be aware of three essential concepts that will allow them to pursue these larger ventures:

  1. Manufactures need to be able to work quickly and efficiently to meet deadlines provided by their stakeholders, while remaining flexible for any change orders that may be requested;
  2. They must possess the infrastructure to support cutting edge technologies to handle multiple parking structures from a single central command system, enabling the owner to efficiently operate all garages remotely;
  3. Manufacturers’ must have the ability to manage multiple integrations with diverse systems to simplify the operator’s processes, while improving the customer’s experience.

Caesars Entertainment, in partnership with TIBA Parking Systems, was able to make these concepts a reality while implementing their first universal PARCS solution.
