EasyPark Group has acquired Inteleon AB, the company behind the digital parking service SMS Park. This acquisition signifies the strengthening of EasyPark Group’s position as one of the leading providers of smart parking services in Europe.
SMS Park is a Swedish digital service for mobile parking via App or SMS. In addition to adding coverage in 250 Swedish cities with almost 2 million users, EasyPark Group will increase its expertise in the parking sector and add sophistication to its already leading platform.
"We have been working on this for quite some time and are pleased we have reached a positive outcome. In addition to expansion of coverage and user base in Sweden, the acquisition supports the thought leadership EasyPark has, to service cities, parking operators and motorists with fully digitalized parking services", says Johan Birgersson, CEO of EasyPark Group.
The parking industry has become a tech-heavy sector with robust development and a strong focus on innovation at its core. By acquiring Inteleon AB, EasyPark Group will increase the pace of innovation and become a significant force at a global level.
"It is clear that technology is the way forward for the industry. In order to increase our competitiveness in an industry so influenced by technology, and to be at the forefront of the innovation curve, we must combine our expertise. This acquisition enables us to escalate our pace of development and enhance our offering in the global arena, which ultimately will benefit both parking operators and motorists, and make our cities smarter", Birgersson concludes.
EasyPark has built a name for itself as a leader of innovation, not only delivering unrivalled service for drivers, but also for businesses they work for, cities and parking operators.
Last year the company added two new services to its already extensive offering: Find & Park which guides users to available parking both on and off-street, and the Parking Dashboard, which allows cities to analyse and interpret parking data from various sources in one simple interface. This data provides insights that create previously unforeseen opportunities to optimise policy decisions.
