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 strive for great customer experiences and more sustainable cities.
Working in cooperation with ParkMan, car rental companies are able to offer a time-saving and effortless parking experience for their customers. Whether renting a car in a familiar city or a completely unknown location, it’s easy to find a parking space through the ParkMan app’s map interface and to pay directly with smartphone without having to drive around, use coins or even step out of the car.
EkoRent’s electric cars are taking over the streets in Finland
The electric cars rented by the Finnish company can be booked directly via the EkoRent app, picked up at the nearest location, and returned without a prior notice. The cars can be charged for free at any electric car charging station.
EkoRent has made the usage of electric cars an effortless, low-treshold option, and now it’s even simpler because parking can be found and paid for directly through the ParkMan app.
What’s more, parking with an electric car can be significantly cheaper. The Finnish capital Helsinki, for example, encourages the usage of low emission vehicles by offering a 50 % discount for parking.
Smart car-sharing in Denmark with Green Mobility
The electric car rental provides a log in – log out service where one can easily pick up a car, use it and then afterwards release it for others to use. Green Mobility has integrated ParkMan’s software into their solution for a superior customer experience.
Parking is automatically started in the ParkMan app based on vehicle location whenever a car is turned off, and ended when the engine is on again. This enables users to park without having to spend time on the payment process – a fully automated parking experience for all parkings made with Green Mobility cars.
Towards green, accessible and well-functioning cities
With up to 30 % of cars in a city at any given time in a city looking for parking, carbon dioxide emissions can be significantly reduced with communicating real-time available parking. ParkMan helps cities get greener by decreasing traffic for the benefit of cities and their residents. Electric cars function with the same objective, to lessen emissions and sustain our environment.
Our cooperation is a win-win, because we get to spread awareness of effortless parking, and car rentals can communicate offers and adopt our solution to give customers the best possible experience. ParkMan payments are easily integratable to any car rental service.
Working together allows for innovative ways of utilizing data and resources that benefit cities in the long term. As smart mobility is going digital in leaps, communication and cooperation within the field is an invaluable asset. There is great potential for solutions that affect the livelihood of cities overall in terms of accessibility and sustainability.
