a Parking has outsmarted four companies to emerge victorious in the tender to manage parking in the capital city.
The 100 per cent Eswatini owned company was announced as winner of the tender by Eswatini Public Procurement Regulatory Agency (ESPPRA) through evaluation results that were also signed by Municipal Council of Mbabane Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Gideon Mhlongo.
ESPPRA pointed out that the tender evaluation for operation, maintenance and management of a vehicle parking system within the city was undertaken in accordance with the Public Procurement Act of 2011.
It was announced that Eswatini Parking amassed 79 per cent points during the evaluation, which was done by the council’s tender board.
The eventual winner of the tender whose value has not been publicly disclosed competed against Margin Electrosec, Lula Parking, Basilela Investment and Comm IT.
A closer analysis of the results shows that the strongest contender was Comm IT, which was awarded 60 per cent points during the evaluation exercise. Margin Electrosec became the third most competitive company at 58 per cent points while Lula Parking scored 57 per cent points.
Basilela Investment was the lowest in terms of amassing percentage points as it only managed to get 36 per cent. It should be noted that in line with the Public Procurement Act, ESPPRA stated that a period of 10 working days would be allowed for the submission of any application for review.
“The contract award decision does not constitute a contract,” ESPPRA clarified. In its official website, Eswatini Parking explains that it seeks to transform the parking experience, increase revenue for the municipality and create job opportunities.
The company said it has adopted a strategy that focuses on differentiation through experience, continual innovation, and value added services, with a special emphasis on Eswatini Parking's integration technology.
In the competitive world of retail, the firm said it believes parking remains an essential service to get right, and a poor parking experience can impact on footfall and customer retention.
“We motivate planning and availability of parking spaces for motorists,” the company promised.
The company also mentioned that it works closely to provide a working solution with parking operators who either own or manage a portfolio of car parks under their own brand, or who manage a car park on their building’s footprint.
“We provide and maintain cutting edge parking systems,” Eswatini Parking explained. The firm added that it embraces the experience and value of their leadership and workforce to execute its mandate.
Eswatini Parking creates, implements and optimise processes to facilitate strong customer focus and continuous improvement. In terms of technology, the company affirmed that it utilises and embraces technology as a crux of their innovation and excellence strategy.
