Rockville is a natural expansion of MobileNOW!'s operations in the surrounding Montgomery County, one of the three largest municipal mobile parking installations in the United States with an existing customer base of over 165,000 customers. The Rockville launch is rolling out in stages, starting at the Rockville Town Square, then gradually expanding out to all metered spaces.
Rockville City Manager Barbara B. Matthews stated Monday, "This will be an added convenience for the folks coming to Rockville each day. I hope that this new option will encourage even more people to take advantage of our businesses and events throughout the year."
MobileNOW! offers parking customers choice of two convenient options by using Interactive Voice Response through our MobileNOW! phone service, or through the MobileNOW! app. The app includes a “start and stop" feature allowing customers to pay for time parked only, a rare feature in the U.S. and the market overall.
“We are very excited to build on our long standing success with Montgomery County by adding the City of Rockville as a MobileNOW! customer.” said John Oglesby, CEO of MobileNOW! “This upgrade is for the citizens of Rockville. We are pleased to encourage the thousands of surrounding Montgomery County residents to shop and dine in central Rockville. We believe this launch will directly support the Buy Local campaign taking hold. We couldn’t be more pleased with the timing.”
The app also accepts payments from user’s m-Wallet (stored value account). MobileNOW! also provides EV charging payment services in a number of Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. locations in cooperation with SemaConnect, a local EV charging operator. MobileNOW! is #1 in the world in this market segment.
MobileNOW! is a world pioneer and leading provider of mobile phone and other cashless payment methods for the parking industry. In addition to enabling virtual payment and collection options, the MobileNOW! platform offers full enforcement, management and reporting capabilities. For more information, visit Mobile-NOW.com
