If you use AutoVu™ Free-Flow to manage transient parking and contract permit parking in parking zones, you can install the AutoVu™ Free-Flow plugin to manage parking lots where parking spots are leased to tenants.
The AutoVu™ Free-Flow plugin replaces the AutoVu™ Free-Flow Dashboard plugin. In addition to the previous features, the AutoVu™ Free-Flow plugin adds multi-tenant functionality to the system.
For example, in a parking lot that has 100 parking spots, the owner has decided to lease a limited number of parking spots to nearby businesses (tenants). A clinic reserves 45 spots for employee parking, a hotel reserves 30 spots for clients, and the parking lot owner decides to use the remaining 25 spots for transient parking using Pay-by-Plate Sync to manage the third-party parking provider permits.
In addition to the Parking sessions task and Parking zone activities task already available in Security Desk, the AutoVu™ Free-Flow plugin provides a portal where you can view parking lot occupancy dashboard and investigate vehicle activity.
In this example, you can see that three parked vehicles do not have a valid permit and should receive citations. Also, the hotel (tenant A) has exceeded its number of reserved spots by five vehicles and should be charged accordingly.
