Strategic Sourcing Guide to Parking Charges Procurement


The market for Business Travel and its sub-segments such as Parking Charges are at an interesting intersection. Consumer markets are underpinned with apps and websites that offer a very friendly experience for bookings and cancellations - an experience that has not yet crossed over to the corporate segments. As executives grow more accustomed to self-planning and self-booking in their personal lives, they expect similar convenience in their business lives as well. In the absence of right tools and technologies, a lot of friction can be generated between employees looking for convenience and travel departments looking to enforce rules and policies.

To simplify the corporate travel and events process and enhance the end-to-end experience of users, suppliers are innovating with tools that aggregate the multiple fragments of this process such as booking, management of disruptions, customer service and spend within a single interface.

With regional and national boundaries blurring in today's corporate world, companies increasingly find themselves with a latent need to bring together geographically distant teams, customers and stakeholders. Therefore, the demand outlook for Parking Charges is expected to remain strong.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Parking Charges is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Parking Charges Procurement Best Practices

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Parking Charges category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Parking Charges procurement best practices.

For example, Bundling of services allows buyers to mitigate the risks involved in managing multiple stakeholders for various aspects of travel and event management. It also offers buyers spend visibility and allows them to negotiate for better pricing during the procurement of services.

Large organizations seek engagement with global category suppliers. However, they must try to achieve the right blend of regional and global suppliers in order to ensure availability of management services at locations where global players do not have necessary capabilities.

Investing in benchmarking studies help category managers enhance their knowledge about market pricing or billing rates based on job roles and functions. This allows them to not only save costs but also negotiate with suppliers. For example, while negotiating on rates of bundled services, buyers can save significantly on a single service by cross verifying the rates quoted by suppliers against industry benchmarks.

Risks in Parking Charges procurement

Parking Charges procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Parking Charges procurement. Some examples include:

  • Rise in fuel charges will lead to increase in logistics costs for travel management service providers. This could be passed on to buyers in the form of high service charges
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Parking Charges
  • Contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms are not very common in the category but they do exist in certain situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question
