Providing parking spaces to businesses and the general public is a guaranteed lucrative business, particularly in busy cities the likes of Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Sydney. The more popular the area, the harder it is to find a parking space. However, not only attraction spots like shopping malls and tourist sites require massive parking bays but also building like hospitals, offices, and convention centers. As an example, the KLCC Parking operator alone managed a total of 12,634 parking bays in 2018 that generated around RM60 million revenue yearly and growing. It is a business that makes a substantial income, but the operators also need to mitigate the rising cost of providing such spaces in the cities.
Apart from providing a safe and decent space for vehicles, operators need to find a better solution to offer their patrons when it comes to paying a parking fee. While many are still comfortable of using parking tickets for payment, the method poses many problems to the users if they lose the card or damage it. The lack of payment machines also is a nuisance to parkers. In short, the patrons are tolerating the system leaves them with no choice, but it is not providing convenience to the customers. Hence, parking operators need to seize the upcoming payment trends and the available parking technology to win the customer over and tap on the market share more aggressively and efficiently.
