Bill Lerner on How Data Analytics is Reshaping Parking Facility Management

92 million Millennials exert their influence on today's marketplace

New York, NY - April 21, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Even in an industry like parking complex development has seen the importance of integrating technology into the everyday workflow, and one way of making the service run smoothly for customers is to integrate big data to make a more convenient experience for the user. Using that data to analyze the needs, locations, designs, rates, and styles of parking his company should provide, Mr. Lerner is working to optimize the entire parking process. The U.S. has more than 2 billion parking spots, many with poorly designed layouts and hard to understand directional signage, making them ripe for improvement from real time apps, smart devices, and detailed information. Analyzing data, Bill Lerner's iPark business used the information to improve the parking experience for a large number of customers in the New York City metropolitan area, putting him right in step with some of the most progressive, populated, congested cities around the world.

As the 92 million Millennials exert their influence on today's marketplace, changing the way companies interact, sell, and do business, Mr. Lerner points to a Goldman Sachs infographic illustrating that these digital natives are completely comfortable with technology. Eager to embrace anything that makes life more convenient, more affordable, and more enjoyable, this age group is an early adopter of concepts like self-driving cars, the Internet of Things, and Smart Cities, offering ways to streamline just about everything, including customer parking needs.

Regarding the notion that Millennials aren't into ownership, The Wall Street Journal notes in an April 21, 2017 article that this group is more likely to participate in sharing economy strategies for cars and rides. That could be interpreted as having a diminishing effect on parking space demand, however, taking the concept a step further, the article adds that when Millennials do need to drive, park, and pay, they are attracted by the simplicity of apps that efficiently direct them to available spaces. Removing the pain points from parking is something that transcends every age group, appealing to drivers and passengers from infants in car seats to busy executives and senior citizens.

President and CEO of Imperial Parking Systems since 1997, Bill Lerner grew up in the parking industry learning the basics from his father. He turned a small family shop into a large owner/operator corporation. Using his 40 years of experience, Bill Lerner is transforming the industry by rebranding his Imperial Parking Systems to iPark, adopting the most comprehensive systems and latest technologies as he sets ever higher standards for effortless customer interaction and a more personal experience. Bill Lerner's name is also associated with his non-profit Billy4Kids organization, which donates shoes to children in developing countries to prevent them from contracting diseases through lack of footwear. Recognized by the Annual Edajo Gives Hope Gala and St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children for three years in a row, Mr. Lerner's good works do much more than help drivers find parking spots as he goes the extra distance to make the world a better, and less frustrating, place.

Digital Life: Cutting back on a constant smartphone habit

May 23, 2018

NEW YORK — Why are we checking Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, then Facebook again when we just wanted to check the weather? Turns out, smartphone addiction is by design. Think of the constant stream of notifications, color schemes in apps and all the "likes," followers and in-game trophies. Our phones and apps are designed to give us short-term, feel-good rewards, so we'll use them longer — at the expense of reading, enjoying the moment or simply being bored. Some companies are relenting in response to concerns from customers and experts. Google's next operating system , for instance, will come with a...

Mississippi: Up to 7,000 bodies from asylum may be in field

May 23, 2018

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Some of the boxes stacked inside anthropologist Molly Zuckerman's laboratory contain full bones — a skull, a jaw, or a leg. Others contain only plastic bags of bone fragments that Zuckerman describes as "grit." These humble remains are among as many as 7,000 bodies that were buried at Mississippi's former insane asylum, a site that's now on the grounds of the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. Researchers are planning to exhume the bodies, create a memorial and study them for insight on how the mentally ill and other marginalized populations should be treated today. "The...

Hawaii geothermal plant plugs wells as lava flows nearby

May 23, 2018

PAHOA, Hawaii — Production wells at a geothermal plant under threat by lava flowing from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano have been plugged to prevent toxic gases from seeping out. Lava from a nearby, new volcanic vent entered, then stalled, on the 815-acre (330-hectare) property where the Puna Geothermal Venture wells occupy about 40 acres (16 hectares). Residents have been concerned about hazards if the lava flowed over the plant's facilities, or if heat generated would interact with various chemicals used on-site. Ten wells were "quenched" by cooling them with enough cold water to counter the pressure of volcanic steam coming from...

Comcast v. Disney: a fight for Twenty-First Century Fox

May 23, 2018

PHILADELPHIA — Comcast may make an offer for Twenty-First Century Fox, potentially putting it in a head-to-head bidding war with Disney. Comcast Corp. on Wednesday did not provide specific details on a bid, other than to say that it would be all cash and at a premium to the value of Disney's current all-stock offer. The Wall Street Journal and others reported earlier this month that Comcast had $60 billion to challenge Disney. Disney's $52.4 billion bid would go a long way in allowing it to better compete with technology companies in the entertainment business. Any tie-up would put in...

Malaysia says search for MH370 to end next week

May 23, 2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The search by a private U.S. company for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 will end next week, Malaysia's transport minister said Wednesday, while families of those who died onboard urged the government to review all matters related to the jet's disappearance four years ago. Malaysia signed a "no cure, no fee" deal with Texas-based Ocean Infinity in January to resume the hunt for the plane, a year after the official search in the southern Indian Ocean by Australia, Malaysia and China was called off. So far, the search has not turned up anything that could shed light...
