PARX France is PARX's subsidiary and is acting as the local operator in France. PARX France is planning to expand the program to more cities next year. The EasyPark product is sold in France under the brand name Piaf 2.

EasyPark(TM) is OTI's patented in-vehicle electronic parking meter. The EasyPark(TM) business model is one in which revenues are generated from product sales and recurring transaction fees revenues.

Oded Bashan, Chairman & CEO of OTI said, "EasyPark(TM) is an easy-to-use, cost effective solution that requires minimum infrastructure investment, which makes it an attractive parking payment tool for municipalities for on-street parking and parking lots worldwide."

Using Piaf 2 the driver pays only for the actual parked time. To activate Piaf 2 the driver turns on the contactless unit and places it in the car window. Upon returning, the driver turns the device off. This creates a uniquely convenient user experience by eliminating the need for cash, change, and saving the time looking for parking meters. Piaf 2 can be used for both on-street parking payments and for parking lots. Piaf 2 provides detailed reports to the municipality in order to better manage and monitor parking patterns across town. The parking system is able to support multiple rates, cities, tariffs in a modular, scalable and easy to implement way.

EasyPark system is the largest field tested in-vehicle parking meter implementation of its kind with more than 30 cities and 600,000 users around Israel. Late last year OTI and PARX have announced the introduction of EasyPark in Italy and Bermuda as well.
