Expanded role for Smart Parking at the University of Aberdeen

Smart Parking has developed its presence within Scotland's education sector with the significant expansion of its service delivery for the University of Aberdeen.

The expanded service encompasses the deployment of controlled parking across the university's Old Aberdeen and Foresterhill Campuses.

The university requires the provision of controlled car parking schemes, in which qualifying staff, students, visitors and disabled drivers apply for and receive a parking permit.

Smart Parking’s service provision includes the supply of Pidion mobile devices and the training of nominated employees to enforce contraventions.

Data and images recording a contravention are fed into Smart Parking’s SmartRep system for back office processing. Smart Parking handles all payment and appeals associated with the operation for the scheme, and the company also installs signage highlighting the terms and conditions relevant to each car park location, including, where appropriate information about disabled bay parking.

Susan Taylor, who oversees Smart Parking’s new business within the further & higher education sectors, said that the extension of the company’s contract at the University of Aberdeen highlighted the business’s ability to meet and exceed the expectations of educational institutions.

“We’re delighted to extend our working relationship with the University of Aberdeen. Our approach is to design then deliver our support so that it reflects the needs of our education sector clients, and we have been able to prove with the university that our services help them manage access to limited parking capacity sensitively, cost-effectively and to a consistently high standard.”
