After successfully conquering terrain in Europe, ParkMan has made the big leap across the ocean and achieved the ultimate milestone: as of May 2017, we have our first client in the U.S.A.
I'm going to start this post with an argument: there are too many parking spaces in the U.S. Too many parking spaces? Sounds strange, right, considering that half of this blog is dedicated to discussing the difficulty of finding even one. There is a real issue, however, that has to do with dedicating too much space to parking.
We've got some news about exciting new partnerships that we’ve recently set up in one of our key markets, Denmark! We are thrilled to introduce the cooperation with each one of the great companies and give you an even better overall experience with us! In addition, summer is coming, and so is holiday season. ParkMan is right there with all the summer travellers, and below you can also read more about that.
In March 2017, ParkMan arrived in Spain - and we couldn’t be more excited. The first city to adopt our parking app is León, a mid-sized city of 130 000 inhabitants in the northwest of the country in the region of Castilla y León.
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.
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.
