For many people, parking is a day-to-day need that frequently results in more friction than drivers are ready to sign up for. Where do I park? Which parking garage offers to best rate? How do I get in and out quickly? Payments – does this place have a pay booth at the exit or do I need to find the ticket machine before getting into my car? These questions add uncertainty and discomfort to our daily parking needs.
ParkWhiz aims to minimize the friction in the parking transaction. The parking experience seamlessly integrates with people’s lives – whether a user needs to run an errand, book an event ticket, or attend a business meeting. Convenience and productivity are the key goals and a competitive parking rate sweetens the deal on top.
At SAP TechEd Las Vegas, SAP recently announced to availability of the SAP Vehicles Network, a new cloud offering that allows enterprises to offer convenient end-to-end vehicle and mobility-centric services – independent of vehicles and devices. Driver across the country can now access parking, among a set of other diverse services, directly from the car via mobile wallet or through an app.
By partnering with SAP and integrating into the SAP Vehicles Network, ParkWhiz now makes the parking experience seamless for drivers. Key ParkWhiz functionality such as predictive parking selection and workflow integration with third party service providers are now available from the vehicle. What’s more convenient than a parking reservation that is a one-click transaction away? With the car as the mobile platform, few drivers will ever leave it up to chance again where they may end up parking.
“We welcome SAP’s initiative to create the SAP Vehicles Network built on SAP’s HANA Cloud Platform and enabling connectivity and transaction capabilities between end users and service providers such as ParkWhiz,” says Aashish Dalal, ParkWhiz’ CEO and Co-Founder. “We strongly believe our association with the SAP Vehicle Network will contribute to realizing ParkWhiz’ vision of creating a seamless and frictionless delightful customer experience – regardless of device, technology or location.”
