The results revealed some basic similarities along with a few country-specific differences.

Elite Parking assumes parking operations at Aventura Marina II in Aventura

After another valet company walks out of a complicated parking operation at Aventura Marina II; Elite Parking steps in with 4-hour notice. Elite management first worked to organize and stabilize the operation, and then introduced a state-of-the-art, technology SMS Valet software to fully automate the operation.

“This SMS system allows residents to request their car via the app on their phone and even validate their guests parking fees through the app,” said Ruben Pérez-Sánchez, Managing Member at Elite Parking.

SMS stands for short messaging system and is the world’s first paperless valet system. The patent­-pending technology allows parking management to streamline operations and expedite the valet process.

They are highly-versed in the latest parking technology, including efficient mobile management systems and cloud surveillance.
