Navigating a busy city amongst the hustle and bustle of people, cars, and traffic can be challenging. Finding parking in that city can be even more challenging. Now imagine having a job that requires you to navigate that city frequently, as you weave between multiple appointment destinations – all of which require you to find and pay for parking beforehand.
Let’s look at the following example.
An internet service provider has 200 on-the-ground technicians operating daily to manage installation appointments for customers in the city of Atlanta. For the technicians, this requires serving customers at their residences within scheduled, time-sensitive windows. And for the customers, on-time arrivals are impactful when it comes to their experience with the provider.
Parking, however, can pose challenges for technicians when navigating between destinations.
When servicing customers downtown, where demand for parking is high, technicians may struggle to find available on-street parking. This may lead them to a nearby parking garage instead, where they quickly discover a “Cash Only” sign. In frustration, they’ll have to navigate back to the street, exploring side-streets further away from their destination. When they do finally come across an open parking spot, they then have to manually enter their vehicle information at the meter and pay using a credit card.
If they’re already running late, they may forget to grab the receipt when processing their transaction at the meter, making submitting a parking expense the next day impossible. To make matters worse, if the installation appointment exceeds the amount of time entered to initiate the parking session, these technicians have to return from their appointments with a parking ticket waiting for them on the windshield.
