Venue Challenges: With award-winning architecture, the 1111 Lincoln Road parking garage needed high tech parking solutions to match its cutting-edge design. The garage serves a diverse group of patrons from around the globe and therefore required parking software that could offer multiple languages, including Spanish and Portuguese. Due to the frequent use of cash among foreign visitors, the garage needed cash payment options and the ability to manage cash with a bill note recycler (BNR). Greeting this diverse group of tech-savvy guests, it was important to 1111 Lincoln Road garage that they stay updated with the latest technology. It was also essential for 1111 to find equipment that could operate effectively in the tropical climate of Miami Beach.
