‘Appification’ key trend in parking
Parking Australia recently undertook a short members’ poll on the type of innovations that are currently trending in our industry. We asked our members if they had adopted any new technologies, products or concepts in the last 12 months. 58% responded positively to confirm they had, with 64% intending to introduce a new concept, product or service in the next 12 months.
Just under half of the new technologies being introduced were smartphone apps or other online parking solutions. Over 10% of the modifications involved LPR/ANPR technology and around 5% related to the introduction of contactless payments.
