Computerized Valet Parking Systems (CPS) has streamlined the valet parking process, and increased efficiency and customer service. CVPS uses computers, digital cameras, and other electronic tracking devices to monitor and record the status and location of a car within the system. The system employs license plate recognition (LPR) software for better tracking and efficiency as plate number no longer need to by manually typed in, as well as aiding in tracking the car keys. CVPS also helps in damage claims by digitally documenting the physical condition of each car as they enter and exit the parking structure. The automation and documentation of these tasks makes it easier for the valet to focus on moving cars.
