Josh Eisen / President of Parking Logix / Toronto
ABOUT PARKING LOGIX:
My company provides the most accurate, cost effective and simple way to install parking counting systems available. We use sensors to track cars IN and OUT of facilities, and wirelessly update signs and apps with real time occupancy information to direct motorists to facilities with open capacity in an effort to reduce congestion and increase customer service.
INTERVIEW WITH JOSH EISEN:
Describe your job in a nutshell...
My job is to set the strategy and then execute.
How long have you been in the parking industry?
I have been involved in the industry for over 10 years now, starting off in Sales and Operations for one of the largest operators in North America, and then several years working in venture capital and parking technology firms.
What is the biggest change you've seen to the industry so far?
The biggest change I've seen is the level of innovation that has come in the industry with the nearly ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices.
Where do you see the industry headed?
We will continue to see consolidation among the bigger parking operators and more property managers taking operations in-house with new simple parking tools.
In what ways will parking be different in 5 years?
The connected car presents great opportunities to reduce current congestion by directing cars into facilities with available space, and greater service by having simplified payment through vehicle recognition on site.
What is your biggest parking pet peeve?
Nothing gets more more upset than having disabled parking spaces taken by regular parkers. Get me angry just thinking about it!
