About

The George W. Bush Presidential Center, located in Dallas, Texas, is a leading institution dedicated to preserving President Bush’s legacy and fostering public engagement through its library, museum, and research initiatives.

Problem

The introduction of Wayleadr at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas stemmed from a strategic need to address parking challenges and promote equitable access to limited parking resources.

With more employees than parking spaces available, the Center faced a pressing issue of imbalance between parking demand and availability.

In an urban area like Dallas, where street parking rates can range from $5 to $20 per hour, and daily rates average $15 to $30, finding suitable parking can prove both costly and time-consuming.

Moreover, prior to Wayleadr’s implementation, the process of finding parking lacked efficiency, with users having to navigate multiple lots to check for availability. The centre had a need for differentiating between five different Tiers of leadership which needed to have different parking priorities as well as some being assigned to specific spaces versus others needing to request available ones.

Solution

Wayleadr addressed the parking limitations by streamlining parking management and introducing equity. Before Wayleadr, finding parking was costly time-consuming, with users checking multiple lots for availability. With rates in Dallas ranging from $5 to $20 per hour, and daily rates from $15 to $30, this was a significant issue.

Wayleadr improved efficiency by showing availability and occupancy tracking, saving time and frustration. It also introduced a fairer system with five priority tiers, catering to VIPs and Board Members. Special assignments for them were seamlessly integrated, whether guaranteed or upon request. Additionally, Wayleadr was able, upon request from the centre, to differentiate between lots that were solely for employees vs once that were for both employees and visitors.

Looking ahead, Wayleadr and the Center are working together to find the best way to open its parking to the public, potentially generating revenue. For a non-profit like the George W. Bush Presidential Center, Wayleadr’s cost-saving measures and operational efficiencies are invaluable, allowing resources to be better allocated to its mission and programs.

“Setup and configuration was quick, easy, and straightforward. The Wayleadr team was highly available and quick to respond anytime we needed assistance – from the start of implementation to the initial rollout of the platform to our team (and beyond).”

- Brian Cossiboom, Vice President, Finance & Operations and Treasurer
