Streetline Unveils Next Generation Cloud-Based Parking Data and Analytics Platform, ParkSight™ 2.0 Enriched analytics and reporting enable actionable insights for improved parking management
FOSTER CITY, Calif., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Streetline, Inc. announced today the release of ParkSight™ 2.0, the most advanced real-time and historical parking data and analytics platform. ParkSight 2.0 was released to Streetline's existing customers today and is now a standard product for all Streetline customers.
ParkSight 2.0 is a cloud-based, software-as-a-service application that allows customers to access both real-time and historical parking data on a 24x7x365 basis. Streetline detects the presence of a vehicle through the use of sensors and transmits the data in real-time via Streetline's patented mesh network back to our data center in the cloud. Information vital to parking administrators including occupancy, turnover, and length of stay data, is then made available to customers through ParkSight 2.0.
With 30% of city traffic caused by people searching for parking, there is a strong case for parking management tools. With nearly 20 standard reports as well as the ability to create customized reports, ParkSight 2.0 enables cities and universities to analyze motorist behavior and make data-driven decisions to better manage their parking real estate.
"We know we need to better manage our downtown parking spaces and use good data to make policy and operational decisions," said Matt Bronson, Assistant City Manager at the City of San Mateo. "With applications such as ParkSight 2.0, we can run reports and share them with other members of our team to help manage our parking inventory most efficiently."
"We are often approached about the sanctioning of accessible spaces on the OSU campus," said Gabriel Merrell, Senior Accessibility Associate and Deputy ADA Coordinator at Oregon State University. "With ParkSight 2.0, we are able to view the occupancy and turnover data quickly and easily, create reports, and provide utilization data to support the allocation of these spaces."
Some notable features of ParkSight 2.0 include:
- Sophisticated analytics
- Highly robust reporting capabilities including 19 standard reports and customized reporting
- Rich visualization
- Around-the-clock access and a truly self-service tool
- Clean and intuitive interface
- Cloud-based service with secure log-in and accessible via a web browser
- Ability to use the data to implement policy changes, track impact, and fine tune
- Export capabilities of data and reports for easy distribution and collaboration
- Ability to slice and dice the data: by block, hour, day of the week in a specified date period
- Data to support the implementation of new initiatives such as demand-based pricing models
The charts and reports included in ParkSight 2.0 have been defined in collaboration with Streetline's nearly 40 customers. By working with customers of different sizes and with different needs and goals, Streetline has identified and delivered on the key reporting features that will further aid cities and universities as they strive to use parking data to optimize resource use, enhance workforce efficiency, decrease congestion, increase patronage in commercial districts, and improve the motorist experience for residents, visitors, and students.
"The release of ParkSight 2.0 is a significant enhancement to our product suite," said Zia Yusuf, CEO of Streetline. "By offering a truly self-service cloud application for our customers, cities and universities can feel empowered to generate reports at whatever frequency they please and easily share across departments.
