Are you grappling with organisational resistance to change, especially at the senior management level? The challenge of introducing new ideas can be a tough nut to crack, but we’re here to guide you through the process and help you persuade senior managers to embrace car park management solutions.

Understanding Resistance to Change

Change often faces resistance within organisations, includingamong senior management and operational teams. Convincing Facility Managers (FMs) and General Managers (GMs) to adopt new strategies can be challenging. These individuals have a unique perspective, understanding both the daily challenges on the ground and the strategic vision required to drive success.

However, getting senior director buy-in is crucial for effecting meaningful change. Senior leaders are typically responsible for improving business performance, making change a fundamental part of their role. Embracing change can lead to cost savings, improved efficiency, and the fulfilment of technological promises.

The Power of Automation: ANPR-Enabled Car Parks

One innovation that can significantly reduce the workload of FM teams is automation, particularly the concept of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)-enabled car parks. ANPR technology has transformed car park management by eliminating the need for manual interventions in handling parking issues, payment collections, and space allocation. ANPR parking has shown an impressive 80% improvement in parking compliance over a 3-month period, along with a 40% increase in available parking spaces.

Moreover, ANPR technology addresses the stress that parking can cause for both customers and facility management teams. According to a Daily Telegraph reader poll, 44% of motorists find parking stressful. ANPR technology simplifies the experience, leading to a 25% increase in user satisfaction ratings. This not only reduces daily complaints but also makes a strong case for adopting ANPR solutions.
