Lynne Schumal, MPM
Co founder and Principal, Advanced Parking Solutions LLC
has 20 years of operations and project management experience. During her eight years in the parking industry, Lynne has
operated many different types of parking operations and has had responsibility
for overseeing parking operations for portfolios as large as fifty locations.
Part of her responsibilities for these portfolios was to assure financial
success for the company and the clients she represented.
She approached every location with a critical eye to guarantee that the
integrity of the revenue control system was solid. Lynne assessed the accounting
checks and balances and set up the operation so that increased vigilance
would ensure complete revenue collections at the facility. To further
enhance the profit maximization of the facility, she forecasted parking revenues
and expenses within the preparation of the yearly parking facility budgets.
As well, Lynne was responsible for assuring the appropriateness of her
facilities’ rate structures to take full advantage of the highest revenue
stream possible. To maximize
parking revenues on the monthly parking side, she assessed parking allocations
for any applicable tenant leases in her facilities.
Recently, along with Kirsten, Lynne prepared, presented and facilitated a
seminar at the annual conference of the Southwest Parking Association called
“Space and Revenue Maximization for your Parking Facility”.
five of her eight years in the industry, Lynne was assigned as an Operations
Manager for Los Angeles and Houston. Along
with the responsibility of the financial management of her facilities, her
oversight included all employee and human resources management issues, client
and customer satisfaction and the training and development of the managers,
administrative staff and line employees that reported to her.
recently, Lynne assured the quality of customer and client satisfaction in 13
cities on the West Coast for the largest transportation management company in
the world. Along with those responsibilities, she also was responsible for
single handedly developing the corporate wide QA audit program for
the company's field locations, implemented various training initiatives to
improve customer and client satisfaction and worked on the company's branding
and standardization initiatives at the corporate level.
has also been extremely involved in the technology enhancement side of the
industry related to the development, testing and implementation of
software and technology to aid in improving parking operations in the
field. In her most recent
position prior to Advanced Parking Solutions, Lynne helped to develop the
company’s proprietary monthly parking accounts receivable program.
She worked from the development phase with the programming firm to
ongoing testing of all enhancements. Her
operational expertise helped to create a monthly parking accounts receivable
program that is second to none in the industry.
In addition, Lynne developed lot enforcement software called MallTrak
with Pacific Cascade that created a way to track parked cars without chalking
tires, alerted the enforcement personnel when a vehicle was parked longer than
allowed in a facility and tracked repeat violators in a specially designed
database with the ability to download to a collection entity.
also has extensive experience with most garage access and revenue control
systems on the market today. She
has consulted on many projects, making equipment purchase and implementation
recommendations as well as managing the process of installation and
implementation at the facilities. Currently,
she continues to work in the software and technology development area of the
parking industry as well as overseeing Advanced Parking Solutions’ global
management information systems decisions.
