PARK NOW Group, the number one parking app in Europe, and digital solutions provider evopark announce the further roll-out of their international cooperation. As a result of this partnership, motorists will have more possibilities for touchless parking and payment in parking garages. The international extension of the cooperation will see parking facilities in the Netherlands, France and Austria join evopark’s mobility CONNECT network, which is an open, manufacturer-independent platform that serves as an interface between mobility providers and car park operators.
Expanded Digital Transactions
As a result of this cooperation, operator partners will be able to participate in digital off-street parking. Manuel Cayre, Head of Off-Street Europe at PARK NOW, explains: "We are very happy with the international expansion of this cooperation. We now have access to an even larger network of digitally accessible parking and can offer our customers new mobility services. We are proud of these first three parking garages in the Netherlands and we are looking forward to adding more parking garages in France and Germany to mobility CONNECT."
Henk de Bruin, Managing Director at evopark, says: "By working together as digital pioneers in the parking industry, it’s our ambition to create the largest digital cooperation platform in Europe. The constant growth of our platform through cooperation with industry trailblazers such as PARK NOW Group benefits all partners who join our platform. It is, therefore, a strategically important step for us to further roll out our ‘Software as a Service’ solutions for car park operators and mobility service providers across Europe.”
The collaboration began in Germany with 22 parking garages and the Netherlands is the first country to expand for the partners’ international goals. Both evopark and PARK NOW Group have an ambitious pipeline; their aim for 2020 is to add another 60 parking garages in Germany. A number of car parks in the French town of Niort will also be added to the network.
