University Parking Shouldn’t Be a Nightmare

“I transferred to a smaller college after I failed my test & was forced to retake the entire class. Why did I fail? Even though I showed up an hour before my exam I couldn’t find a parking spot. I had to park several blocks away & although I sprinted the whole way there, I didn’t make it in time & my professor wouldn’t let me in to take the final! The parking at a less popular school is the reason I switched.” 

These are the words of an upset student. Parking management at colleges and universities is the number 1 student complaint. Indeed, Los Angeles Times reported in 2015 that parking on U.S. college campuses has been a problem since the 1950s. So, How can these complaints be resolved? Is there any modern solution that could turn all these bad reviews into good ones? omniQ believes their product could do just that. 

omniQ utilizes artificial intelligence & License plate recognition technology to revolutionize parking. Our all-in-one parking solution benefits both the student and the university.
