As 2013 draws to a close, we look back through the past 12 months and what this time has brought to ParkCloud. It has been a busy and productive year, with many new partnerships, opportunities and successes.
At the end of 2012 ParkCloud moved into new offices: bigger and better than the last premises, the building was previously home to the Manchester Evening News. Although we thought it might take months to fill all the available desks, we soon realised that empty seats don’t last long at ParkCloud.
February saw Russia, Estonia and Lithuania added to our expanding coverage. Business trips during the year ranged from Moscow to the US; Copenhagen to Madrid; and Amsterdam to Qatar. A partnership with Ryanair was launched in March, bringing in hundreds of bookings each day; further partnerships included Romanian low-cost airline Blue Air, SunExpress in August and most recently Alitalia. Parking at train stations was a welcome addition when ParkCloud was announced the winner of a tender by Italian state rail operator, Trenitalia.
ParkCloud has transitioned from a pan-European company to a global provider of parking services, with the network of car parks passing the 700 mark, our team more than doubling and numerous airports choosing ParkCloud as their parking reservations provider, including Allgäu, Cuneo and Brussels South Charleroi.
As ever, the parking industry was alive with events, most notably the 16th European Parking Association Congress in Dublin: ParkCloud participated as both exhibitor and speaker for the “Parking Technology Showcase”. Trips already lined up for next year include the IPI Conference in Texas and ACI’s Regional Airports Conference in Madeira. To top off 2013, ParkCloud was delighted to be recognised at the local Stockport Business Awards, “Highly Commended” in the International Trade category, and the EN Entrepreneur Awards, where Managing Director Mark Pegler was named “Technology Entrepreneur of the Year”.

Checking the 'Use current location' checkbox tells the website to ask the browser to find where it is in the world using geolocation.
No; it is entirely optional.
Geolocation is where the browser attempts to work out where you are in the world based on information it has to hand.
The information gathered varies depending on the browser and the device, but typically includes the device's IP address, nearby Wi-Fi network SSIDs, and GPS co-ordinates.
For more information, please check your browser vendor's website.
Accuracy varies depending on location, browser, and device capabilities. Typically, mobile devices achieve high levels of accuracy, as they are usually fitted with a GPS receiver, and they can use nearby cell towers to triangulate their position even without GPS. However, in areas with few cell towers, or in areas with poor GPS reception, accuracy can be greatly affected.
Devices with neither GPS nor a cellular connection have to rely on IP geolocation, the accuracy of which can vary greatly depending on the browser. Accuracy can be improved by using nearby Wi-Fi network SSIDs, but not all browsers support this method.
For more information, please check your browser vendor's website.
Different browsers use different geolocation services; for more information, please check your browser vendor's website.
The first time the box is checked, your browser will ask for permission to share your location; if permission is refused, then your location will not be shared.
Every browser has tools to manage geolocation permissions; for more information, please check your browser vendor's website.
