I watched a panel discussion about smart parking some time ago, and while it was very interesting and insightful, it also revealed the segmentation of the industry. There was talk about silos, polarization and misunderstandings between different stakeholders. How could the dialogue be improved?
We all know that climate change is not only a reality, it’s an increasing threat for our lives as we know them. Researchers are unanimous: we need to find ways to improve our habits so that we can prolong the lifespan of our precious planet. In this post, we’ll discuss the ecological benefits of smart parking.
Whenever you navigate to parkman.io or see our sign on a parking meter, you’re looking at the work of Erik, our designer. He is the artist of the bunch, and the driving force behind ParkMan’s visual branding.
Every business owner would prefer it if the business was going even better. Even when it’s already good, and especially if it isn’t where you would hope. Parking is no different. Fortunately, new technology has brought about growth methods that can be introduced without risking the existing business.
Is it too early in the year for an update? We think not, because so much has already happened. As the beginning of 2017 has rolled around, the first launches are already behind us and that’s something we’d like to tell a little bit more about. We’re excited to see ParkMan users in more and more places.
Just like so many other things in our lives, technology will also change the way we move from one place to another. It’s not quite what Back to the Future predicted with half the traffic infrastructure moving to the sky, but there will for sure be new inventions that sounded sci-fi in the 1980s. Take a look at some of the things that will change, and are already changing, in the future city.
Whenever there’s a problem with parking, there’s one guy you can turn to: Per, our Head of Customer Service. He's not just one of the most important people when it comes to our relationship with our users, he’s also a ParkMan pioneer - the first person ever to join the company from outside of the founder group.
