Smart Parking – Parking Yield Simulator Game
How do you manage your inventory and optimize the revenue from your parking lot estate? Welcome to your new job! Your predecessor has, unfortunately, left the online commercial parking strategy in a mess! And it’s your job to sort it out.

You and your team will be asked to balance the parking price and occupancy of two fictional car parks – a premium car park and an economy car park – to try to hit the annual stretch target set by management and earn more than the competition.

Learn how smart parking techniques like dynamic pricing, upselling and cross selling can all be used not only to increase revenue, but also to meet the needs of your customer and effectively manage your inventory.

So challenge your colleagues and peers to see who is the best parking manager and take away the learnings to apply in your organization. Prizes will be given to the winning team!
