Software-as-a-Service provider evopark and mobility provider ParkMan start a cooperation. It enables the technical connection of the ParkMan app to already existing parking systems equipped with Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH technology in Finland. The aim is to give operators more opportunities to digitize their parking operations and to expand their own digital offering with another important mobility provider. Users of the ParkMan app will gain more options to make use of their registration in parking garages in Finland. Locally, the project is being supported by PARKTECH Finland Oy and is scheduled to go live at various locations later this year. mobility CONNECT is a manufacturer-independent mobility platform that acts as an interface between mobility providers and parking garage operators. By connecting these mobility providers to the platform, cooperation partners benefit from the proven technology, which is already used in nine countries. The goal of evopark is to enable a homogeneous and scalable platform for connecting mobility concepts to the existing parking infrastructure.
The digital pioneer evopark is an expert in Software-as-a-Service solutions for parking garage operators and mobility providers. ParkMan provides its users with easy access to free parking spaces and convenient cost processing of the exact parking duration. By connecting the app to mobility CONNECT, the accessibility of off-street car parks is extended for users and customers to get a wider range of parking options in selected cities in Finland.
"The cooperation with ParkMan is another important step to support operators in Finland and PARKTECH's partners in their digitization strategy. With the connection to ParkMan, we achieve a significant coverage of app users in Finland, who can now also park in off-street parking garages. We are pleased to welcome ParkMan to our platform," says Christian Grzona, Director Sales & Marketing at evopark GmbH. Mikko Väisänen, Sales & Marketing Director of ParkMan Oy adds: “ParkMan's strategy is to cooperate openly with all stakeholders in the parking industry.
