Parking technology providers, ParkHub and Vend, have partnered to create a safe, seamless parking experience that reduces physical touchpoints at gated facilities. As part of the partnership, the companies will initially promote Vend's contactless access control solution to parking operations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and Greater Boston metropolitan area with the scope of readily extending the offering to ParkHub's nationwide client base.
"While establishing ourselves as the preferred technology provider for high-throughput destinations, ParkHub has maintained a vision of optimizing the entire parking industry through applied technology," said George Baker Sr., founder and CEO of ParkHub. "The pandemic has greatly accelerated the need for overall advancement - from event-based operations to transitory parking processes - and we are excited to work with Vend to promote contactless, friction-free entry into parking facilities."
Vend provides a hands-free, windows-up solution for consumers to access gated parking facilities safely. Vend installs a simple aftermarket hardware device that can open any parking gate securely using Bluetooth, eliminating the inconvenience of dealing with paper tickets, QR codes, RFID cards, and pay-on-foot stations. The Vend SDK and API provide a single integration point that mobile apps and connected vehicles can easily embed for a seamless parking experience.
"Understanding that the future state of parking will be completely digital, Vend provides the most user-friendly, touch-free access and payment solutions, helping parking facilities embrace this transition," said Mike Miele, co-founder and CEO of Vend Park. "We appreciate the opportunity to share our Bluetooth access technology with the ParkHub team and are excited to work with them to deliver a safe and seamless digital parking experience."
