On board device, Telia Sense, went on sale in November 2016 with partnerships including Folksam, Bilia, Swedish Motor Vehicle Inspection and Roadside Assistance Viking. The company recently announced an expansion of this cooperation to include smart parking service provider, EasyPark.
EasyPark’s smart parking services already help drivers to find and pay for parking in 500 cities in 10 different countries. TeliaSense customers will soon be able to start parking with the EasyPark app, and their parking session will automatically stop once they exit the lot. This eliminates the risk of accidentally overpaying for parking.
“As more and more cars become digitally connected, we are now taking the first steps towards a fully digitalized parking experience for motorists. Our cooperation with Telia Sense is all about creating smart services together and making them accessible to everyone”, says Mauritz Börjeson, Chief Business Development Officer EasyPark.
“We are pleased that Easy Park has become a partner of Telia Sense. With EasyPark's service, customers will get a superior parking experience. Just like Telia, EasyPark is a partner focused on creating great customer experiences. We see huge development potential and even more future applications with different partners”, explains Hans Dahlberg, head of Telia Company's global IoT device.
Through Telia Sense, the car owner gets access to a range of features which control the car, connection via wifi and access to offers from Telia's partners. By joining the platform, providers can offer their services via the Telia Sense app interface as well as take part of the car's data to develop new services. Car owners are able to choose what information they share via the product.
