How Mobile Tech Fuels Smart Parking Experience

Here's how mobile technology offers an efficient way for drivers to experience seamless parking.

FREMONT, CA: Over the times, technology has grown increasingly influential in both parking and transit, and the evolutionary ideas are the same across both industries. When it comes to parking, mobile technology enables drivers to make more informed parking decisions based on real-time information. Mobile technologies can also assist parking experts via more efficient asset management.

The benefit of parking applications is proof of the high demand for mobile technology in parking management. There are a bunch of parking apps in the market today which center on localization. They are created for cities to cover as many parking spaces as feasible within the coverage area. There is an on-demand parking feature accessible in certain parking apps, enabling users to pay in advance to book a place before they plan to park. Some apps are precisely tailored to finding a space to park that is accessible on the spot. Most parking apps are available to download for free, offering a variety of payment methods too.

Easy payments, compelling pricing, and other such features of mobile applications can offer opportunities for both public and private operatives. A demand-response program can maintain public parking on a block-by-block, time-band by time-band foundation. Mobile apps are employing a real-time, algorithmic methodology to create optimal parking rates. Many app developers are adopting well-tested mobile payment technology, offering seamless payment experience for customers. These parking apps can facilitate mobile payment at all kiosks and meters in the city, enabling drivers to remotely add time to their parking timings, abort a session early to dodge wasting unused time and prepay for the parking. The data gathered from these could be monetized potentially, for planning or to advance offers to clients.

With mobile technology, parking providers have a chance to improve the consumer experience significantly while simultaneously obtaining a more holistic, precise, and real-time picture of how parking facilities can be used.
