Operating a parking facility, like running any business, requires planning skills, accounting knowledge, and financial management and budgeting expertise. The financial management includes not just revenue, but all data from the operation including expenses, ticket and lane counts, monthly card access, validations, timecards, operating statistics and other logs that your location or company may require. The planning skill requires not just a single, fiscal year focus, but a multi-year, multi-task outlook. 

In this informative webinar, you will learn the importance of planning to successful parking operations.  The webinar will explore how to integrate multi-year IT and maintenance priorities and how to develop the right size budget for your operation. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn about the basics of a parking budget and the advanced decisions that may impact a three-year budget outlook as a benchmark.
  • Hear how to integrate multi-year maintenance & IT priorities
  • Find out the three budgeting “gotcha's” to avoid.
