About Parking Boss

Designed and developed by Luminous Creative, Parking Boss is a cloud-based parking management platform designed for apartments and homeowner associations. The cloud-based platform provides a combination of features for desktop and mobile devices to help people manage guests and resident parking as well as enforce parking rules. It includes a Virtual Attendant for self-service guest parking, Field Agent for fast parking and Smart Decals for vehicle identification. It serves as a parking management solution for multifamily, condo and HOA (homeowners association) and commercial as well as healthcare facilities.

Parking Boss’ Smart Decal feature allows users to track individual vehicles and their parking activity using a unique serial number and QR barcode. Parking Boss’ standard 1.5” x 2.5” decal is available in black, green, blue, red, yellow, and purple colors, and can be customized for business needs. It is available both in exterior and interior sticker options. The Parking Manager app offers full control to teams that require management of parking and enforcement of parking rules and regulations. Users can add multiple managers to their account to help share and manage the load. Managers enjoy privileges such as issuing violations, running reports, assigning Smart Decals, printing passes, document access, vehicle banning, and more.

    The customer service of the staff is stellar. They respond quickly and are accomodating and helpful and willing to attend Board meetings to review the product with the Board.

    Pros

    I appreciate the virtual platform that eliminates the need for issuing &/or record keeping of physical parking placards. Everything surrounding parking is virtual and in live time, which is great. It's also convenient for the residents at the communities I manage because it gives them the ability to manage their own parking.

    Cons

    Actually, no cons as of current! Great work.

    Overall, Parking Boss has been a great help with any, and all parking at our property. We are easily able to reach out to the vehicles that are violating parking rules (Wrong parking spot, parked in a fire lane) so long as they have a parking permit. This has made it so we have to tow less, while keeping compliance much higher

    Pros

    - Ease of use. The website is simple, and can be navigated with ease
    - Privacy. Anyone with a parking permit will only have a parking spot, and license plate displayed if the QR code is scanned by anyone who is not an administrator for that particular parking portfolio.
    - Easy to keep track of vehicles and reach out to whoever is violating any parking rules or assigned spots before resorting to towing the vehicle
    - Parking spots can be set up ahead of time when setting up the software

    Cons

    - Searching up parking permit information is based on either permit, apartment, license plate, or parking spot. You can not just type what information you have into a single search bar. You must select the specific field you are searching in
    - Parking violations time out under the violation tab and will have to be searched directly by permit number, license plate, or violation number
    - Some features on the website are not immediately clear what they do.

    I believe the concept is wonderful and so far most of our residents have given the thumbs up. Inputting all of the information is incredible time consuming especially with almost 1000 residents at my property. Hopefully the inputting of information can become more efficient.

    Pros

    Ease of monitoring registered automobiles.

    Cons

    Inputting initial information is very time consuming.

    Response from Luminous

    Hi Shannon,

    We're really sorry that the initial resident content input took too much time and completely agree with you. Your complaint is very legitimate.

    We are currently testing and are very close to launching a self-registration for resident vehicles, although verifying ownership is something to consider. Do you have any thoughts on how verification should be implemented?

    Also, thanks for caring enough to review us. We want to make our product as great as it can be and your feedback makes this possible.

    Nice product and nice people.

    Nice product and nice people.

    Pros

    Web based, easy to use. Type, print and go. No extra equipment really needed beyond printers.

    Cons

    The search feature needs work. It used to pull up everything, after an update we can't find anything. I use a spreadsheet to track parkers so it's no a show stopper but it definitely needs to be fixe.d

    Parking Boss has improved the productivity of our personnel who work nights and are tasked with enforcing parking regulations. We are saving 2-4 hours per shift, depending on the property.
    The program has proven to be very affective at improving our parking situation at every property. Residents have been very pleased as more parking is available. Our customer service has improved too! Guest parking is regulated and passes are easily available.
    Parking Boss readily listens to suggestions and makes changes as needed to improve the product.

    Pros

    The system is very easy to use. Even those with limited computer experience pick it up quickly. I have to mention the affordability as well.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to mention. I am very impressed with the ease of use. Parking Boss went beyond my expectations in improving parking.
