Chapman University is transforming their parking operation with the help of NuPark’s smart parking management solution. What started as a need for occupancy data has evolved into the realization of a full-featured enterprise system, including 34 license plate recognition (LPR) cameras that will provide real-time analytics and strengthen security for the 78-acre campus community.

Among the innovative changes NuPark brings to the university will be the automation of many permitting and citation management processes that were previously done manually. The new system will feature a customer-friendly, online interface and provide ease-of-use for students, employees and visitors purchasing parking permits. Moreover, real-time parking occupancy data will be accessible to Chapman’s parking professionals from any device with a modern web browser and internet access.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with NuPark because their system platform is able to be configured around our operational needs and is flexible enough to add modules and interface with our other systems, as needed. With NuPark, we are bringing our operations into the 21st century. It’s reassuring to know that we are able to solve multiple problems through one solution,” states Sheryl Boyd, Assistant Director of Parking Services for Chapman University,

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with Chapman University,” adds Jim Leida, VP of Sales and Marketing for NuPark, “Their upgraded system will allow them to streamline their current as well as their future parking processes, helping them to reach their ultimate goal of a safer and more efficient campus parking operation.”
