Technical knowhow secures new contract in Mayo


15 October 2014 | APCOA PARKING IRELAND has been awarded a new two-year parking management contract with Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT).

The new deal extends APCOA’s existing seven-year relationship with the education establishment until at least September 2016, and potentially until 2018.

During this time, APCOA will continue to provide efficient and effective managed services, which include: parking enforcement, cash collection, extensive reconciliation and reporting for GMIT.  It also comprises the issuing of staff and students’ permits through a bespoke permit management system, which has been developed in consultation with the education sector.

In addition to the current value-add service provisions at the 350-space facility, APCOA will introduce new signage, along with pay and display and pay by phone technology around the campus to help simplify the payment process for motorists.

These enhanced customer payment options and car park management processes will deliver an even more efficient operation for the Institute, and added convenience to the consumer.

Neil Cunningham, Managing Director of APCOA PARKING IRELAND, said: “The retention of this contract is very important to APCOA.  We have invested heavily in technology over the past year, and we welcome the opportunity to introduce this to the GMIT Mayo campus to enhance and improve the customer experience.”
