Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 24, 2017
Parkmobile, the leading provider of mobile parking solutions in North America, announced today that it has launched parking reservations capabilities into the Parkmobile App. Parkmobile currently enables consumers to pay on-demand for on-street and off-street parking in over 2,000 locations and 250 cities across the US and Canada. With this enhanced functionality, available to owners and operators, Parkmobile will instantly enable its more than 6 million users to also find, reserve, and pay for parking in off-street parking facilities, delivering the only complete solution for all parking types through a single application. This release represents the next phase in Parkmobile’s mission to leverage technology and innovation to eliminate friction and maximize convenience and efficiency in parking for the owner, operator, and consumer.
Initially available in iOS, Parkmobile’s latest release is the first of its kind to offer an innovative and comprehensive app for all parking types. Markets launching today include Washington, D.C., the San Francisco Bay Area and Kansas City, MO, with many more scheduled to launch in the coming months.
“This is a tremendous step forward in realizing Parkmobile’s vision of consolidating all parking inventory and options through a single user interface,” said Jon Ziglar CEO of Parkmobile. “No longer does a consumer have to switch from one parking app to another to pay for parking on-street, reserve a space in advance, or find where they can go for the big game or concert. With Parkmobile, it is all there in one place. Connecting our user base of over 6 million consumers to our unparalleled network of on-street parking inventory and now the ability to see and reserve parking in advance for off-street facilities as well, we are delivering a complete, seamless parking experience to consumers. Further, this comprehensive app expands the options and visibility available to our clients to maximize the value of their parking and mobility related assets.”
Key features of the update include:
- Reservation of spaces at gated facilities and major event venues across the country.
- Completely redesigned, modern, intuitive user experience
- Map-based view to see and quickly navigate to on and off-street parking as well as view nearby retail, restaurants and transit options
- Nearby zones automatically populate in the screen to enable 1 tap zone number entry
- Improved sign-up flow including camera capture for credit cards
“The industry is moving rapidly and technologies are converging as consumers increasingly expect real-time access to information and options in one place. We saw long ago that separating on-demand from reservations, events or permits created a disjointed experience for the consumer, not to mention requiring owners and operators to go to multiple vendors for various parking types. With the advanced Parkmobile App, we have built the foundation to usher in the next evolution in mobility.”
Users can now download the new consolidated app for iOS, with reservations coming to Android and mobile web in the coming weeks.
