Recent information shared by The Economist magazine revealed that half the global adult population own a smartphone, with 80% predicted to own one by 2020.
With 179,628 mobile app downloads expected over the course of this year and 224,801 predicted for 2016, figures suggest that more and more people are turning to smartphone apps not just to entertain, but to manage almost every aspect of their lives, and that includes arranging a parking space for their car.
The rise of ‘peer-to-peer’ parking services, where drivers are paired with people looking to rent out a private parking spot, and real time information parking apps on available spots with demand responsive pricing, demonstrates that drivers are now going to greater lengths to avoid looking for parking, instead opting for the convenience of booking a guaranteed parking space in advance.
But with varied pricing and availability in the sharing services market, there are broader solutions for the parking industry and for the customer, currently saturated with apps of differing quality. ParkCloud, a long time trusted source in the parking industry, have been connecting drivers to parking spaces since 2008 in 39 countries worldwide and has further improved the traveller experience in 2015 with its B2C ParkVia mobile device app.
Customers are now able to access ParkCloud’s entire parking network straight from their mobile device, and the same easy to use interface will make obtaining a quote for parking or reserving a space a stress free experience.
Since launching a fully mobile responsive ParkVia website, ParkCloud have also tapped into what has proven to be an important sales channel, one which more and more companies within the parking industry are recognising as a prime source for bookings.
