Creative Parking Concepts together with Scheidt & Bachmann USA have been chosen to provide parking and revenue control solutions (PARCS) for a new Vanderbilt student housing project in midtown, near campus. The solution will feature the ability to accept QR codes from 3rd party parking resellers with flexible validation options for retail tenants and residential visitors.
CPC delivered a turn-key project to install two Chargepoint CPE250 Level 3 fast chargers for our customer in Columbia, TN. The customer had already purchased the stations, and needed qualified electrical and installation services. Working with the local power utility and our electrical contractor, CPC coordinated the construction and installation of new 480V service, transformer, and outdoor panel needed to energize the new stations. This was followed by in-field commissioning of the units by CPC, a licensed Chargepoint Partner.

LOWELL, MA and NASHVILLE, TN, (October 27, 2022) – Scheidt & Bachmann USA, Inc. (“S&B”) and Creative Parking Concepts, LLC (“CPC”) announced the signing of their channel partnership agreement whereby CPC will become a sales, distribution, and service provider for new S&B customers in the southeastern United States. Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Creative Parking Concepts has been selling, installing, and supporting a variety of parking technologies since 2010 as one of the leading systems integrators in the parking and transportation industries. As part of this new relationship with Scheidt & Bachmann, CPC will now be representing one of the most iconic brands of Parking Access and Revenue Control Systems (“PARCS”) in the world for customers within their region, which includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
For S&B, their partnership with Creative Parking Concepts reflects a new chapter in the organization’s 150-year history by marking the first time it will sell and support its products through a distributor-based model in North America. Until now, the company has operated exclusively with a “manufacturer direct” approach throughout the US and Canadian markets.
“After evaluating several key data points and metrics within our current business, moving to a distributor-based model in certain markets with the right, hand-selected partners that will add value to our existing offerings just makes sense,” said Bill Geraghty, Executive Vice President of Sales for S&B. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to kick things off with Creative Parking Concepts and feel honored that they are as equally excited to be working with our organization. Todd Albert and his team are a highly talented and professional group of individuals that share our passion for delivering great technology and a great customer experience.”
Todd Albert, CEO of Creative Parking Concepts, stated, “When we became aware that Scheidt & Bachmann was building a partner channel in the states, we immediately raised our hand. S&B’s versatile product line is built to scale and includes the full range of features that today’s parking buyers demand; from gated to gateless, from tickets to apps. We are beyond excited to be selected to represent the time-honored S&B brand as a full-service partner in the US.”
Scheidt & Bachmann says similar announcements with additional key channel partners are in the works for other select markets around North America as they continue to enhance their Go-To-Market strategy to benefit both their customers and the business.

About Creative Parking Concepts
Founded in 2010, Creative Parking Concepts‘ mission is to provide forward-thinking technology solutions to the commercial parking industry.
Delivery vehicles were being directed (via signage only) to use a one-way traffic pattern to access the loading dock for freight deliveries. Signage only had proven inadequate for preventing vehicles from turning off the main thoroughfare and coming the wrong way into the loading dock area. The drive lane to be protected was a full 35’ wide, so the challenge was to add barriers that could cover and block that wide opening from wrong-way traffic. CPC designed a barrier system that uses 2 extra-long gates, paired in a configuration that would allow vehicles to exit freely, while preventing traffic from accessing the dock from the main road in the wrong direction. Feintool requested specific colors and branding for the barrier columns, and also desired the arms to have green/red LED lights for high-visibility. The customer also wanted the ability to use a push-button wireless remote to be able to raise the gate from inside the loading dock, which was roughly 80 yards from the new barriers. CPC designed and installed a solution that met all of Feintool’s requirements for functionality and aesthetic.
Creative Parking Concepts designed a comprehensive parking plan to efficiently manage vehicular and pedestrian mobility, including the installation of 22 electric vehicle chargers, all parking control equipment and gates, pay stations, a pedestrian safety system and clearance alert systems. Located in the heart of downtown Nashville, 5th and Broadway is a popular entertainment and lifestyle destination that required a nuanced and integrative approach to employee, visitor and resident parking to make arrival and departure hassle-free. By creating a customized parking strategy that included state-of-the-art technology and equipment, CPC was able to deliver a turnkey parking solution that optimized the customer and tenant experience from the start.
