Three Douglas Parking Garages Now “Online” in Denver & Scottsdale

“Parker Technology provides a quality call service to several of our garages. Answering all the calls myself previously, I was worried about quality control and how the CSR’s would handle the incoming traffic. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by their professionalism to my parkers and attention to individual unique details at each of my locations. Using their back-end software is very user friendly and I can listen and track all the calls from each location, spending very little time a day.”

Kindness Can Be Taught

I spend a lot of time thinking (and worrying) about ways to build and maintain a great culture at Parker Technology. As I sought my next “hook” to launch this LI article, I was fortunate enough to catch a vignette on NPR by Anya Kamenetz, Cory Turner and Chloee Weiner, entitled “Kindness Can Be Taught.

Authentic Concern is Today’s Standard for Excellence in Customer Service

The other day I was on a train with my family, and as the next group of passengers embarked, I nudged my teenage son to move so that a kind woman, “much older” than him, could take a seat. The woman smiled and shared that she had just recently encouraged her daughter to do the same thing. With an exasperated expression, she shared that in that moment, her daughter failed to comply and said “Why? I’m never going to see them again.” Interesting. It took 24 hours before I could connect the dots. Then it hit me.

In an Automated World – Failure is the Norm and The Human Touch Matters More than Ever

Self-service automation is taking over. You can’t go to a grocery store, an airport or a restaurant without interacting with a machine where a human once stood. The automated machines in parking garages known as PARCS equipment are no different. The parking industry led the way when operators started replacing cashiers with automated payment kiosks more than 15 years ago. And while it’s true that automation is becoming the norm, human failure in front of that automation is happening much more than you realize.
