RETHINKING PARKING SPOT ALLOCATION
We are reinventing our parking management by making it more fluid for our collaborators at HQ. Spots are allocated every day automatically through the Commuty platform, to collaborators based on priority rules, for instance carpoolers and pregnant ladies have higher priority. Thanks to this new system, we give access to 120 extra employees to our parking every day.
START DATE: 2020
Ethias operated only with dedicated parking spots, with a total of about 700 spots for its two car parks. They suspected that their car parks could reach up to 50% empty spots while employees had to park on-street or in a public parking paid by Ethias, leaving less spots available to the local residents.
Ethias decided to implement a system to optimize their parking management. Their goal was to fill the empty spots by allowing employees who were used to park outside to use them.
The system Commuty has setup is fully automated. Commuty connects with Ethias HR software to know when parking owners are absent and when requesters are at the office. Every day, the empty spots are distributed to car drivers for the next day. Thanks to the Commuty app, they receive a notification confirming they can access the parking and specifying in which area they are allowed to park.
Today, thanks to this system, 120 extra car drivers can make use of the Ethias parking spaces. On top of it, Ethias can cut the expenses on external parking spot rentals.
Thanks to this parking management optimization, Ethias can now focus on objectives such as becoming carbon neutral or rethinking its employee mobility budget.
