3 Ways You Can Make Money with Valet Parking
Many different places from hotels to malls to restaurants offer valet parking. But not every valet parking company takes advantage of the best hardware and software to provide excellent customer service while optimizing revenue.
Here are 3 ways you can make money with valet parking.
1. Use The Right Technology
That’s where O-Valet comes in. We took the experience and expertise from valet professionals and software engineers to create an automation software unlike anything else. Rather than reverting back to old pen and paper ticketing systems, O-Valet combines software and hardware to optimize your valet service.
“The valet parking industry is ever-increasingly competitive, and companies need to find innovative ways to get ahead of the competition. With SMS and ticketless options, O-Valet allows you to operate completely paperless while enhancing the guest experience.”
-Adam Szabo, Founder of O-Valet
What does O-Valet Parking Management Software offer?
SMS for Valet
- .Instead of relying on pen and paper, O-Valet lets your guests receive an SMS text message. The message outlines instructions on how to request and pay for their vehicle.
Paperless and Ticketless
By using a printer rather than SMS or physical, paper valet tickets, your company can save money by reducing ongoing operating expenses.
Kiosk For Guests
- An automated request and payment kiosk cuts down on costs and makes it easy for your clients to pay whenever they want.
Damage Claim Reduction
- No need to worry about false damage claims ever again. With HD cameras that record a 360-degree view of each and every vehicle, claims can’t be falsified
PMS Integration Fully Ready
O-Valet offers quick and easy integration with Oracle’s Micros Opera PMS (5.x & Cloud), Agilysys’ rGuest Stay, Hilton’s OnQ, Starwood’s Galaxy Lightspeed, and many more.
Parking Hardware Friendly
- With a range of hardware solutions from gate arm payment machines to weather-proof access control systems, you can get the features that work best for your company.
2. Investing in Valet Software can help keep guests and staff happy
Every step of the process is accounted for in the app. That means you can say goodbye to missing keys and cars. In addition, customers are able to request their vehicle in advance, so they don’t have to wait around. O-Valet makes sure your guests leave happy.
On the other hand, you also want your employees to be content. You can learn about your staff’s productivity, hours, etc. What’s more, O-Valet has a built-in early and late attendance system. This allows you to provide objective performance reviews and reward your best-performing employees. With detailed reports and metrics, you can schedule staff when you need them and eliminate unnecessary labour.
But, don’t just take our word for it.
Here are some recent customer testimonials.
Christopher Murray, Director of Operations
O-Valet’s software helped us reduce our labor overhead by 27% and made our employees more accountable. Hotel guests love how the app allows them to request from their room. 100% recommended.
Ethan Morciego, Manager, Guest Experience
Our location, our brand, and our guests have been given a complete transformation from the implementation of O-Valet. We’re looking forward to our smoothest year ever, operationally speaking – and it’s because of O-Valet
3. Offer different payment methods
O-Valet lets you do just that. It goes without saying that if you limit the ways your guests can pay, you’ll attract fewer customers and make it inconvenient for your company to get paid. Payment can be made via credit, debit, cash, and even other validation comp accounts assigned by you.
In a similar view, it helps to offer different places where your guests can pay. They can do so on their phone, at an O-Valet kiosk, or at a cashier. No matter how people pay, the app records the payment history and additional information for future reference.
On the app, you can find daily, monthly, and yearly revenues. Plus, you can even create custom reports to get a better idea of how your business is doing at any given time.
