Streamlining the Campus Guest Parking Experience at SUNY Cortland
Offstreet is proud to announce its recent deployment with Auxiliary Services Corporation of SUNY Cortland (Cortland Auxiliary) – a not-for-profit organization that partners exclusively with the State University of New York at Cortland to provide business services to the greater Cortland community.
“Offstreet has been everything we needed it to be. Being able to easily give our temporary employees and departments nearby parking has been amazing! Seriously alleviates a pain point that we’ve ALWAYS had.” - Dan Condon, Assistant Director, Cortland Auxiliary.
Like many other post-secondary institutions, Cortland Auxiliary aims to have a fully digital parking program, eliminating the use of physical parking passes. Despite transitioning to LPR enforcement and implementing virtual permits for most use cases, it lacked a solution for department guests and temporary employees. Maintaining physical passes for these use cases added to the workload for the parking team and hindered its ability to enforce with LPR.
Using Offstreet’s highly flexible validation software, Cortland Auxiliary can integrate its event, department, program and special-guest parking with license plate-based enforcement, eliminating the need for physical passes and increasing operational efficiency.
Departments can create registrations on behalf of guests or provide them with a unique link to register their vehicles for parking upon arrival. After the license plate is entered, parking session data is sent to enforcement officers in the field via a secure API integration with their enforcement software.
This partnership will allow Cortland Auxiliary to better utilize LPR enforcement and save time managing validations and complimentary parking on campus.
We are extremely excited to continue our partnership with Cortland Auxiliary and look forward to supporting the institution in its transition to frictionless parking operations.
