    CHENEY, Washington - Eastern Washington University  will partner with NuPark, a leading provider of next generation parking management solutions, to provide automated parking management and enforcement for the Cheney campus. By using NuPark's cloud-based Parking Management System, EWU will now be able to provide more efficient and customer centric parking options.

    EWU will use NuPark's open, web-based smart parking management system to help automate their enforcement and permitting operations. The system includes license plate recognition (LPR) technology; real-time data access and syncing; and options for electronic permitting, payments, citations and appeals.

    "We decided to switch to NuPark because we needed a flexible system that could respond to our challenges while simultaneously accommodating our future needs," says Michelle Rasmussen, director of EWU's Parking and Transportation Services. "NuPark will be able to address our current situation and continue to adapt to future changes while incorporating technology that helps us meet the university's sustainability goals within our parking operations."

    Rasmussen says Eastern faced challenges with the operational inefficiencies of the physical hang-tag parking permit system it previously used. She points out NuPark's system will enable EWU to issue virtual permits and verify parking permissions, enforce and issue citations in real time, and seamlessly integrate with existing meters, mobile payments and infrastructure while using license plate recognition technology.
