use our technologies to provide better service, operate more efficiently and mitigate their risk exposure.
Having worked in or been around the service industry for many years, our team understands the various touch points that can collide and cause friction in a service environment. Between customers, employees and product, there are lots of moving parts that require traction, guidance and transparence. Our solutions are designed to do just that.
Our valet parking technology is second to none, invented years ago when people thought is was comical to have a computer inside a valet parking booth. Turns out that it makes sense to account for millions of dollars in inventory, zippy valet drivers, trusting customers and the money changing hands between them. More
Anytime a vehicle changes drivers, the liability follows and so does the amnesia when a ding, scratch or dent is discovered at the time of return. A picture tells a thousand words. Here is how you can prevent that from happening to you. More
Whether you have 200 or 2000 rooms, understanding the performance metrics and whereabouts of your staff is the difference between a well tuned service operation and one that makes unhappy customers, burns lots of cash and accelerates employee turn-over. More
Let your customers use their loyalty points to pay for services and upgrades, promote their place in line based on tier or VIP status. Our multitude of gaming and hotel management system interfaces will allow you to create a seamless customer experience. More
After 20 years of doing anything, you better be good at it and we are. Mining value hidden in plain sight is what we do. Service is made up of several key ingredients that interact in a predictable fashion. Without the right technology, you pay more, get less and lose customers. Our clients don’t – and there is a reason for that.
Turn your shop upside down, recording every move, metric and moment that goes into the service you are looking to optimize. Work-flow analysis is the fancy term.
Stories, followed by the most important question. What’s your ROI. If you don’t win big, we won’t build it. When you say go, its all UI/UX, agile development, QA, production, deployment, training & support. We are full service!
Everyone has ideas, so don’t be shy. We’ll build, partner or sponsor depending on the idea and unlike most start-ups who like to fail fast, we like to succeed fast... and do.
Born in Germany, made in Detroit, rewired in San Francisco. Aspiring aeronautical engineer turned 80′s-current entrepreneur via valet parking science, back-alleys and bullets. First to market for 30 years and that’s just the warm up round. Created industries where people thought were none. Exponential technology freak, burner, Jobs/Branson/Musk wanna-bee (but then again who isn’t), racing, yoga, surfing, making great wine and most important, drinking large quantities of it. Married my beautiful and awesome partner (I know what you’re thinking but she is a girl) 8 days after we met and have 3 of the most beautiful children to show for. Favorite line: ‘When would right now be a good time?’
Shana Schuette wants to live in a world where being cool is a profession, good wine is free flowing, common sense is inherent and wearing stilettos is pain free.
As co-founder and CFO, she’s been spotlighted, showcased, applauded, and honored, on blogs, websites, podcasts and in theaters. Too many to list here. NOT! However, over the last 20 years she has managed to put to good use her talent of number crunching and creative thinking. When she’s not skillfully planning world domination with her soul mate - Digital Shaman, you can find her- well actually it would be difficult to find her as she is low key and avoids most social media. But, the word on the streets has it that she thoroughly enjoys learning about exponential technologies via audio books, reciting and quoting insightful hip hop lyrics (to herself or anyone who cares to listen), and dancing at any given moment!
Her first book on how to combine accounting, wine, and dance titled "Put a little boogie in that spreadsheet" hits the shelves on Amazon this year. Look for it. Just kidding.
Surprisingly good salsa dancer with 25 years experience in valet parking, where salsa skills are under appreciated. Fond of Irish whiskey and good red wine, but not together. Talks a lot (see Irish whiskey), but also listens really well. Dad, skier, scuba diver, reader, motorcycle rider, amateur race car driver, and burner. Looks a bit like Ed Norton, and is not actually qualified to do brain surgery.
Escaped the circus performing life to put her flexibility skills into multi-tasking for the CVPS/STS/SA team since 2005. Sarah enjoys wearing wild costumes more than regular clothes and can frequently be found in town dressed as a Pirate. Mother of 2 beautiful daughters and grandmother to one grandson who she has nicknamed “Noodle”. Sarah takes her wine and fire dancing very seriously, just not at the same time.

Favorite Quote: I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person – Audrey Hepburn
Curtis was born way after the time he should have been, he’s a cowboy born in the technology era (his word and honor mean more to him then anything). When he wasn’t riding 2000lb bulls both as an amateur and professional, he found he loved electronics. Gained his electronics knowledge from the Navy and worked 10 years in a place that he can’t talk about fixing “Things”. Had a great opportunity to run the famous “Fountains of Bellagio”. Unfortunately, being in an office just didn’t suite his love for roaming (the range?). Loves going from place to place and getting issues resolved. Carves knowledge and figuring out how things work and fixing them or making them work one way or another. First and foremost, he’s a Dad and husband, golfs, reads when he can (tech and fantasy), can’t wait to find a fishing hole, loves to play sports, running (when his body stops breaking), tinkers in programing, and electronics. One day, he’ll make that cattle-drive if it kills him!
