Exciting news from the world of ParkMan! We have established cooperation with car rentals. We’ve recently partnered up with EkoRent in Finland and Green Mobility in Denmark to together strivefor great customer experiences and more sustainable cities.
Parking has had a much greater effect on the urban life than we even realize. Although it’s not one of those things that first come to mind when thinking about the key features of a city, it is in fact one of the defining characteristics of modern infrastructure.
The very essence of technology nowadays is invisibility - you don’t see it, but it’s there, all the time and with everything you do. Just like any other industry, parking must adopt the concept of invisible technology in order to survive in the digital world.
Like any other topic in the world, parking also has its curiosities. As a long-standing industry on the verge of a revolution towards online parking, it has a rich history that keeps on evolving as time goes by. Let’s take a look at some of the most fascinating facts about parking from all over the world.
Parking management has traditionally been, and still is, done mainly with traffic signs. In the digital age, it seems strange that information is still given with hardware, especially when it works so poorly.
The parking industry has for long tried to solve the issue of detecting how many people are parking, where and when, and how many spaces are unoccupied at any given time. Crowdsourcing offers a solution that is both cost-effective and accurate compared to previous attempts.
Parking and parking payments are dependent on two variables: time and place. For a digital solution to be able to calculate parking fees and help finding parking, it needs to be able to understand both data. Therefore, a key ingredient of a successful parking app is GPS.
