Supporting Local Merchants
The Sentry system provides numerous benefits to local Merchants. Besides the obvious benefit of increased parking availability, the Sentry System supports on-street advertising, e-coupons, and traffic measurement.
On Street Advertising
Merchants can participate in an on-street advertising program that has no equal. The Sentry Meters can display highly-targeted advertising directly where it is most needed - in front of the people who are parking or walking near your store right this very minute!
merchant validation program
The MPS Sentry system is the first integrated parking system that allows Merchants to participate in a program where parkers are able to be reimbursed for their parking right in the vendor's store. By participating with "SentryBux" merchants can encourage nearby parkers to visit their store for instant parking validation!
Merchants who participate in the MPS Merchant program have on-line access to "traffic reports" that provide detailed information about the parking activity around their business. No other parking system provides such clear, current, and actionable information that merchants can use to gauge the level of foot traffic around their business.
