Well known worldwide for its pay station technology and Whoosh! mobile payment app, Parkeon’s focus at this year’s IPI Expo is to showcase a multitude of new digital services that will have an positive impact on parking operations, traffic congestion, air quality, and the economic health of downtown areas.
The Parkeon Smart Center will contain demonstrations of many new back-end services to help municipalities and parking operators be more efficient and optimize revenues. Key components of the Smart Center are Parkeon’s next generation back-office reporting tool – Analytics – and a recently developed web based E-Permitting tool.
For cities looking to help drivers find parking quickly and reduce pollution downtown, Parkeon is presenting its Path to Parkon and off-street guidance app and a new pollution monitoring service in partnership with BreezoMeter.
Parkeon believes that it is important to involve the local shop and restaurant owners in downtown parking operations. With this in mind, Parkeon will be showcasing its merchant couponing, advertising, and validation codes programs at the IPI Expo. These dynamic services allow merchants to generate additional revenue while giving cities the ability to provide more benefits to drivers and pedestrians.
“We are excited to demonstrate that we have made a successful transition from a hardware manufacturer to a true digital solutions provider,” said Benoit Reliquet, President Parkeon, Inc. “We have spent a lot of effort in developing tools that solve real citywide problems and the IPI Expo gives us a great platform to share these solutions with key parking professional across the United States.”
The exhibit hall at the 2016 International Parking Institute Conference & Expo opens Wednesday, May 18 and Parkeon is ready to demonstrate the latest in smart city solutions to the thousands expected to attend. Parkeon’s can be found at booth #705 at this year’s IPI Conference & Expo which is being held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN.
