VANCOUVER, May 4 /CNW/ - Impark announced today it has been recognized
by the Toronto chapter of the Building Owners & Managers Association
(BOMA) as the recipient of BOMA Toronto's 2011 Pinnacle Award for
Innovation. The award was presented at BOMA's 2011 Celebration of
Excellence Dinner at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on April 27th.
The Pinnacle Award for Innovation is presented each year to an
organization delivering a unique service oriented product or offering
to the commercial real estate industry, and Impark was recognized for
the development and implementation of its on-line self serve monthly
parking website. A 'first' for national parking companies in North
America, Impark's new system allows its contract parking customers to
manage all aspects of their monthly parking online. Not only can a
customer sign up for parking from the convenience of their home or
office computer, they can also view and pay invoices, select lots based
on maps and satellite imagery, change their personal information, and
manage multiple spaces within a single contract.
On hand to participate at the event were a few members of Impark's
Toronto team, including Gordon Craig, Regional Senior Vice President,
and Nancy Forget, Manager of Business Development, who both accepted
the award on behalf of the company.
"Impark is very proud of its long association with BOMA", commented
Craig, "the company has made a substantial investment in improving its
monthly parking system to meet the changing needs of the parking
customer, and we are very excited to receive this auspicious award in
recognition of the result."
