The year is again drawing to an end, and it’s time to look reminisce everything that has happened during the past 12 months. This time, it’s a lot! On the brink of 2018 we are looking back at a year full of new areas of operation, new interesting people and more users of the ParkMan parking app than ever.
One of the most important things that a parking app must have is top-notch navigation. Because really, what’s the one requirement for people to park in your spot? They need to find it.
Summer’s officially gone, but the year for us is far from over. This fall, ParkMan has again started operating in a brand new market. Starting from Monday the 25th of September 2017, the app is now in use in Klaipeda, Lithuania!
Self-driving cars are the next big unknown in the parking industry. Will they reduce the number of cars on the road? Where will they live? How does parking fit into the driverless future of the world?
First of all, building parking facilities costs, and so does maintaining them. In that sense, the term “free parking” is, in itself, already an oxymoron. In this post, though, we are looking at parking pricing from the perspective of city functionality. According to research, only smartly priced parking is a good idea - why? And how can that be achieved?
As a ParkMan user, you already know the basic (and awesome!) things that you can do with our parking app: see parking areas on the map, see the rates, extend or end parking whenever and pay for parking with one tap. In short, an overall improvement of the parking experience. (For a more concrete breakdown of the “traditional” parking experience, check our previous blog post).
Now that tech is here, the one looming fear is that when some tasks will be replaced by automation, that will result in job loss. So, while digitalization is exciting, it also arises doubts and speculation. In this post, we will explain how technology affects parking operators - and why there's no reason to be afraid.
