Within this guide, there are links to other articles that show specific steps and offer more information to customize your set-up to best fit your organization.

1. Creating an Account

(If you've already created an account, you can skip ahead to number 2. below.)

Head on over to securepark.io and click on "TRY NOW" in the top right hand corner. 

Fill out your information and click on "See SecurePark in Action". 

Enter your information and follow the instructions. Once you've hit Finish, you'll be sent an email asking you to verify your email address. When that's all done, you're good to go! You can now login with the email and password you set, through the login button at app.securepark.io.

2. Downloading and Setting up the App

The mobile app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store by searching SecurePark, or you can find it at the following link:

Be sure to set up automatic updates so that the app is always running the latest version: running old versions of the app can cause problems. 

You, as the primary admin, have full access to the app and can log in with the email and password you created in step 1 above.

3. Adding Users

The Primary Admin (the person who set up the initial account will always be a primary admin) will also be able to set up other users, of which there are three types: 

  • Primary Admin
  • Admin
  • Patroller

Each of these users have the ability to be set up with different accessible areas of the console; for instance, if an admin doesn't need access to the validations tab, you can set that up as being an inaccessible area of the console and they will not be able to see it at all. 

All users can be set up in the admin console (securepark.io) through Settings -> Company -> Users.

4. Adding a Group and Location

Before you begin patrolling, you'll need to set up a group, and a location under that group. See the links below for more information on how to do that.

5. Configuring a Violation Invoice

What do you want your invoice to read? Do you need it to include payment details? What about an appeals process, or disclaimers? This can all be done through Settings in the admin console. More information about configuring an invoice can be found here.

6. Setting a Cost Structure

A cost structure is not necessary, but it's a great tool to use and know. Setting a cost structure can be a little tricky, so we've written a more in-depth article on how to do that here

7. Issuing Violations

As soon as you have downloaded the Mobile App and acquired a printer (something you can buy right from SecurePark: contact us at support@securepark.io to get your own), you can log in and begin issuing violations! For more information on Issuing Violations click here.

8. Violation Management

Now that you have begun issuing violations, you will need to manage those violations and can do so within the admin console at app.securepark.io. You can search, view and perform many actions on the violations you have issued. For a more in-depth article on violations management, see here

9. Validations

Validations can be manually added in SecurePark, or retrieved through an external integration, to validate vehicles at locations. You may want to add individual Validations or Permit Parkers for a set amount of time. To find out more, click here.

10. Reporting
