SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Civica Software, in conjunction with the City of Santa Barbara and Sentry Control Systems, announced the launch of an innovative real-time parking application. This mobile-focused application will serve over 4.4 million cars, which utilize the City of Santa Barbara's Downtown Parking Program per year.
Residents, visitors, and business owners alike approached the City regarding a web application that displays the parking lot occupancies in real time, via a mobile friendly implementation. The City of Santa Barbara staff partnered with Civica Software and Sentry Control Systems to develop and implement a completely responsive solution, which is also PCI DSS compliant. Users are able to view parking lot availabilities in real time, as well as get GPS directions directly to their desired lot through their native mobile map application.
“We are thrilled to implement this new technology for our community. Prior to the launch of this real-time parking application, finding available public parking in Downtown Santa Barbara could be difficult and time consuming, especially during events or peak hours. This new application will greatly improve our parking systems, as well as traffic flow throughout the city with fewer cars circling the streets to locate an available lot,” explained Justin Berman, Parking Coordinator of The City of Santa Barbara.
“Launching innovative technologies for local governments and their communities has always been at the core of Civica. Partnering with forward thinking cities such as the City of Santa Barbara to implement a piece of technology that will benefit over 4.4 million vehicles annually is extremely rewarding,” said Jake Brenner, Communications Manager of Civica Software.
Civica was founded by a team of web technologists and a city council member from Southern California, who were inspired to launch innovative online solutions for local government. Headquartered in San Diego, California, Civica has launched over 300 projects across 125 agencies nationwide and is a pioneering force within the eGov industry.
