Parking Boss overview

What is Parking Boss?

Designed and developed by Luminous Creative, Parking Boss is a cloud-based parking management platform designed for apartments and homeowner associations. The cloud-based platform provides a combination of features for desktop and mobile devices to help people manage guests and resident parking as well as enforce parking rules. It includes a Virtual Attendant for self-service guest parking, Field Agent for fast parking and Smart Decals for vehicle identification. It serves as a parking management solution for multifamily, condo and HOA (homeowners association) and commercial as well as healthcare facilities.

Parking Boss’ Smart Decal feature allows users to track individual vehicles and their parking activity using a unique serial number and QR barcode. Parking Boss’ standard 1.5” x 2.5” decal is available in black, green, blue, red, yellow, and purple colors, and can be customized for business needs. It is available both in exterior and interior sticker options. The Parking Manager app offers full control to teams that require management of parking and enforcement of parking rules and regulations. Users can add multiple managers to their account to help share and manage the load. Managers enjoy privileges such as issuing violations, running reports, assigning Smart Decals, printing passes, document access, vehicle banning, and more.

Real Parking Management

Parking Boss has improved the productivity of our personnel who work nights and are tasked with enforcing parking regulations. We are saving 2-4 hours per shift, depending on the property. The program has proven to be very affective at improving our parking situation at every property. Residents have been very pleased as more parking is available. Our customer service has improved too! Guest parking is regulated and passes are easily available. Parking Boss readily listens to suggestions and makes changes as needed to improve the product.

Pros
The system is very easy to use. Even those with limited computer experience pick it up quickly. I have to mention the affordability as well.

Cons
I have nothing negative to mention. I am very impressed with the ease of use. Parking Boss went beyond my expectations in improving parking.

After months of resident complaints regarding our community's lack of parking, our Regional Manager stumbled across Parking Boss and recommended that I reach out for more information. I was willing to try anything to help solve our parking problem, but after my first phone call I was sold! I couldn't wait to begin using the Parking Boss system! Parking Boss accomplishes several things 1) It helps to enforce the lease agreement; which for us means only allowing 1 vehicle per licensed resident. The Parking Boss system easily allows us to track vehicles and ensures that only 1 sticker is issued per licensed resident. 2) It basically eliminates all unauthorized/illegal occupants living within your community because those individuals are not able to obtain a QR sticker for their vehicle, essentially making it impossible for them to park on your lot. This system forces these individuals to fill out a Rental Application in order to get added onto the lease agreement. Only when they are approved and have signed the lease agreement can they get a QR sticker for their vehicle. (Needless to say we had 20+ roommate additions within the first month!) The Parking Boss system bleeds into some of our other systems as well. For our community it is important to know the total number of occupants living in a home because part of the monthly water, sewer & trash charges are based on the per unit occupant count. By having record of all residents living in the home, we can charge a more accurate & fair rate to all of our residents. We are a 504 unit apartment community so tracking vehicles without some sort of system in place is almost impossible. With Parking Boss, we know exactly what vehicles are parked on our lot at all times. We can even track guest vehicles! We were able to verify proper licensing & registration when issuing the QR stickers which helped to facilitate the removal of several vehicles from the property. In the past 12 days that our Parking Boss system has been active, we have already received 2 positive reviews specifically mentioning the improvement in our parking situation. In addition, we have noticed that our parking lot has more open spaces than ever before, even during peak hours (typically after 10pm). I would highly recommend Parking Boss to anyone looking to solve a parking problem!

Pros
It helps to eliminate unauthorized/illegal occupants living at your community. It easily tracks all vehicles parked on your lot, including guest vehicles. Our community only allows 1 vehicle per licensed resident and this software makes it easy to enforce!

I believe the concept is wonderful and so far most of our residents have given the thumbs up. Inputting all of the information is incredible time consuming especially with almost 1000 residents at my property. Hopefully the inputting of information can become more efficient.

Pros
Ease of monitoring registered automobiles.

Cons
Inputting initial information is very time consuming.

Response from Luminous


Hi Shannon,

We're really sorry that the initial resident content input took too much time and completely agree with you. Your complaint is very legitimate.

We are currently testing and are very close to launching a self-registration for resident vehicles, although verifying ownership is something to consider. Do you have any thoughts on how verification should be implemented?

Also, thanks for caring enough to review us. We want to make our product as great as it can be and your feedback makes this possible.

Parking Boss has saved my Condominium Association time, money and improved efficiency

Wonderful! We were one of the first condominiums that started to use Parking Boss for parking monitoring and provided feedback to the owners when the software first rolled out. We are happy with the software.

Pros
We like that the parking program is virtual and accessible to our residents and their guest 24 hours/7 days a week. I am able to access the software as the Administrator from my phone and assist my residents. It allows us to monitor the residents and their guest, it provides us with documentation that we may have unauthorized occupants.

Cons
We would like for the software to be more adaptable and allow special parking permits to be extended more than once. It would also be more convenient if we are able to just click a button to renew a parking permit that may have expired, rather than having to enter the information all over again.

Parking Boss = Parking Management Made Easy!

Review Source: Capterra

We have experienced: -Better organization in office and out in our parking lots -Improved communication and rapport between our staff and residents -Lots of extra time in the day due to ease of use - Parking Boss works for US! -Excellent record keeping -Fantastic Customer Care from the Parking Boss team -Extra Security by knowing who is supposed to be parking on our property

Pros
Parking Boss has saved myself and my staff hours and hours of time. We have religiously used Parking Boss to manage the parking at our apartment communities and have personally witnessed it's magic. It has helped us open up so many parking spaces and has helped us remain in control of who gets to park at our community. It's proven to not only be a major time saver, but also a bonus security measure. While advertising the program to our new residents, we are able to advertise a more secure parking lot due to our consistent use of Parking Boss. We love being able to look back and see notes we've left and photos we've taken of cars that are in violation or get towed. This allows us to physically show residents what happened and has improved communication and rapport between residents and our staff.

Cons
We would like management to be able to edit notes or delete pictures if need be. There have been times when we've made mistakes and those can't be undone.
