Homegrown parking management company, Park Here Sdn Bhd, a fully owned subsidiary of PKNS Real Estate Sdn Bhd aims to revolutionize the vehicle parking industry through technology and innovative services. Incorporated in 2013, the company began operations in 2015 and to-date manages 4,475 parking bays spread across six sites in Selangor.
According to the Chairperson of Park Here, Pn. Hajjah Roziah binti Haji Ahmad, at the heart of the management philosophy of the company is people.
“We are going back to basics and looking at the needs of customers and offering them services that make their lives simpler.” She adds that “this is why the operational staff are known as customer service assistants and not parking attendants.”- Pn. Hajjah Roziah binti Haji Ahmad
Operations Manager, En. Ardisham Mohd Shahir, says the direction of the company is beyond just parking management, as in the pipeline are plans to offer periphery services to customers which include valet services with a difference and full-service car wash. Business Development Manager, En.Norasidi Rashid adds that while the company has been in operation for the past 3 years, building owners are still unaware that a Selangor-based parking management consultancy is now available to professionally manage their parking needs.
Sites currently managed by Park Here include Precint 6.1, PKNS Complex, Menara PKNS, SACC Mall, Menara Worldwide and Dana 1 in Ara Damansara. Long term plans include the possibility of acquiring the German-owned Skidata parking system and user app to enable data reporting on traffic in and out the parking zone of the building.
