Parking Boss overview

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.

I Wish I Would Have Thought of This Myself!!!

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! 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!

Parking Boss has helped us eliminate unwanted vehicles parking on property. We often had people who didn't even live here using our parking lot as a carpool lot. Parking was always full and residents ended up parking in no-parking zones, blocking in other residents and even parking in our grass and landscape! We rolled our Parking Boss with new parking rules limiting the number of vehicles per home. It's been a game changer!I love that I can provide user access to my entire staff and my vendors out in the field. It's simple to use and pretty much self-explanatory. There's a report for everything, which makes it easy for us to cross check data with our data systems.

I love this software. I run dispatch for a small security company and having a simple way for both myself and my officers to quickly check for registered guest passes via license plates is fantastic. I like that we can look up by plate, decal or condo number so it's not too tough to check if there are special passes registered according to any of the above. Just about my only request for improvement would be if there was a simpler way for users to register temporary license plate tags. I and my dispatchers currently need to check multiple variations of day / month / year in plate format, and again with "TEMP" in front of it to try and ascertain if someone with a temp tag actually has registered a pass with the property and it gets cumbersome. If there was some sort of strict way that the system had users register temporary plates so we don't have to constantly check multiple variations, it would be a dream come true.Ease of use. Easy to annotate special passes and lookup said passes.

The Parking Boss team and their tool have been nothing but a pleasure to work with. Once they got us set up we rarely needed to contact them, but when we did they always resolved our concern / need very quickly. The tools keep improving over time, but always in a way where you are delighted instead of made they changed something. Now we have a database of all parking offenders in our community. It automatically flags those who are repeat offenders so we can focus our parking enforcement team to address the largest problems first. Fully exportable database. Very comprehensive and simple too (a rare combination these days). Highly Recommend. A+++.Flexible Enough, Clean looking, easy to use. Enough functionality, but not cluttered. Fast to use online or on mobile URL. Has picture & geo functionality for meta data as it pertains to parking citations.

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. 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.
