Member News: The Ohio State University Selects TIBA Parking Systems & Signature Control Systems to Implement New Parking Revenue and Control System
COLUMBUS, OHIO, December 15, 2017 – TIBA Parking Systems, in association with Signature Control Systems, has been selected by CampusParc to install a new Parking Revenue and Access Control System (PARCS) in The Ohio State University parking garages.
CampusParc, operating and maintaining Ohio State’s parking system under a 50-year lease since September 2012, elected to replace all 98 lanes of an existing Parking and Revenue Control System. The Ohio State parking system is currently one of the largest of its kind. Its 16 garages, with approximately 13,000 parking spaces, along with an additional 23,000 spaces in 188 surface lots, are spread over 78 million square feet on the Columbus campus. TIBA was selected to provide a complete, network based PARCS solution for the university’s multi-level parking structures. The contract was awarded to TIBA, in large part, due to TIBA’s reputation for quality, reliability, and unparalleled agility tailored to the business needs of large and complex installations, which align with CampusParc’s strategy to provide enhanced customer services, efficient and hassle-free access to campus parking, and strategic investments in the parking system. TIBA’s new PARCS solution uses advanced parking technologies to improve operational efficiency, build revenue, and enhance business intelligence. Whether it is allowing access before physical credentials are sent, adding time to an existing access, or creating easy and flexible validation options, the TIBA system provides a solution that seamlessly integrates with third-party online services.
“TIBA is known for providing flexible solutions for large and complex projects. The combination of TIBA’s solutions and Signature Control Systems’ integration has earned our confidence in a successful partnership. In light of our prior business relationship with Signature Control Systems, we are excited about working with TIBA and growing our partnership over the coming years,” said Sarah Blouch, President and CEO of CampusParc.
