Challenge

How to eliminate the gaps in the parking lot management

Fortum is constantly looking for ways to create the best possible working conditions and atmosphere for their employees. The company approached us with the challenge of ensuring comfortable parking for their employees, without creating a gap in terms of security and organization of the parking by the property manager.

Solution

A partnership that allowed easy access to the parking lot, as well as access to usage data

When Fortum started using Tidaro, they were renting 57 spaces – despite this, many employees were forced to look for a parking space, often paid, outside the company’s parking lot. Fortum employees believed that there were enough parking spaces, but an appropriate parking management tool was missing.

Starting point: 57 parking spots, great team and manager

About 90 employees from the Fortum team were invited to use Tidaro in May 2019.

From the beginning, the tool for sharing and booking parking spaces became more and more popular, and the company’s employees began to regularly provide their friends and colleagues with their parking spaces during their absence. Each employee received an access card that allowed them to enter the car park.

“We did not have to look for additional parking spaces in other car parks in the area – it was enough to use a tool to manage the spaces that we already had, which directly translated into savings also for the company “- says Dorota Waligórska, Procurement and Real Estate Manager, Global Travel Category Manager at Fortum.

Thanks to the introduction of Tidaro in Fortum:

  • All employees can book a parking spot in the company’s car parks when needed
  • The admins has constant access to the parking usage report, which has inspired a number of decisions related to parking optimization.

What does the data show?

The graph below shows how many parking spots are made available daily by employees with a fixed spot (gray) and how many are reserved (sea color).

The collected data shows that:

  • On average, drivers reserve parking spaces provided by other employees 362 times a month
  • It can be said that the Fortum car park has been permanently enlarged by 12 parking spaces
