Configuring the Integration
RICOH Spaces has the ability to integrate with your existing APCOA parking system. The APCOA parking system provides management for on and off-street car parks, multi-storey and underground car parks, car park surveillance as well as a broad range of additional services. By following a few simple steps you will be able to quickly have RICOH Spaces creating parking bookings in your APCOA parking system.
Firstly an administrator needs to open the Integrations Centre within RICOH Spaces and select the APCOA option. The integration will require a Key and Password, these can be provided to you by your APCOA contact.
Once filled in the APCOA integration is complete and is ready for you to start using it.
Using the integration
Once you have completed the integration you will want to start using it. To do this you’ll need to set up an Automation. An administrator will need to navigate to the Automation centre and select Create From Scratch. Firstly set the trigger, this should be RICOH Spaces and Visitor Created. This means the automation will start when a visitor is created within RICOH Spaces.
Next choose your action. This should be APCOA and APCOA parking. The action will require your APCOA facility number to be entered.
Finally give your new automation a name and save it. Now when a new visitor is created via the RICOH Spaces system and that visitor has a registration place associated a new APCOA parking record will be created.
