SKIDATA Partners with ParkMobile to Provide Mobile Payment for Parking in Minneapolis
Longtime, anchor customer – City of Minneapolis along with operator ABM have recently provided the power of mobile
payment for their thousands of daily parkers and visitors. SKIDATA deployed the MPLS Parking app powered by ParkMobile to provide this convenience for both the parker and the city at 11 of the 16 municipal garages installed by SKIDATA.
Dan Stublaski, Senior Manager, Midwest – SKIDATA, shared additional insight into this process, “The ParkMobile interface provides a best in breed experience by allowing the customer to scan their parking ticket with their ParkMobile app at any time prior to leaving the garage. The payment is applied once they insert their ticket at the exit thus allowing for faster throughput.”
Dan continued, “The City of Minneapolis and ABM are continually looking to improve the customer experience and reduce friction in the parking transaction. Our patented cloud-based validation solution, sweb.Validate, provides a better experience for both the operator and the end user.”
The City of Minneapolis has been a SKIDATA customer for over 15 years and has grown the scope and functionality of their massive parking operation to over 200 lanes of equipment at 16 parking garages. Operated by ABM, the parking system has gone through recent upgrades and is in the process of increasing their modern functionality with the SKIDATA web based tools – sweb services.
The ParkMobile interface provides convenient and advanced functionality to simplify the experience for parkers throughout the city of Minneapolis. Additional features of the system allow for an LPR solution where the exit gate automatically vends, allowing exit once the paidplate is read.
“We are very excited to expand our relationship with SKIDATA in the City of Minneapolis,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We currently have over 300,000 users in the market and now those people will have more smart parking options around the city.”
