Blog post: 5 ways to save on parking expenses

Every business watches its spending. But one area many miss? Parking costs. In a busy city, parking can get pricey: overpayments, parking fines, and long manual claim processes. Without streamlined parking expense management, costs add up fast. After reading this blog post, you'll see how digitizing your parking management can make a difference.

What’s wrong with the old parking meter?

The invention of the parking meter in 1928 brought order to the chaos of street parking. However, it also brought a whole new set of problems: running back and forth if you need to top-up the meter, having to overpay if you weren’t sure of how long you’d be, or else risk a parking fine. Mobile parking apps have revolutionized the way we park and manage parking expenses. With EasyPark Business, you can control parking permissions, review costs, and get monthly invoices in a couple of clicks from a single portal. With all the figures at hand, you can analyze expense data to identify cost-saving opportunities and even customize your reporting.

So, let’s look at how you can find cost-saving opportunities just by shifting from an outdated parking system to a cashless and paperless mobile parking app. If your company is starting to grow to a larger size, congratulate yourself and take a really close look at the 5 tips below. There’s money to save.

Hidden cost

Did you know about all these hidden costs?

Think of the time spent dealing with expense reporting. Not to mention the time spent on administering the parking costs or fines. And all the interruptions in your employees' workday, due to extending the parking, and using the parking meter. Little by little, these hidden costs build up to impact your business’ performance. But it doesn’t have to be this way. To understand the hidden cost of parking, consider the cumulative effect of these seemingly minor annoyances that can result in hefty overpayments.

  • Miscalculating parking durations

  • Not having access to real-time pricing

  • Simply human error

Then come the penalties. Parking fines and penalty charge notices, often due to manual errors or oversights, compound the problem and lead to unbudgeted expenses.

“Time spent finding a spot and paying for parking can quickly add up to full working days.”

The path to reducing these hidden costs is paved with an app and some smart tools. With EasyPark Business, you can easily track and manage parking costs. This user-friendly expense management platform will give you a clear picture of how much you spend on parking. Analyze the data and discover hidden cost-saving opportunities.
