DIVVY launches a new parking aggregator to empower consumers
DIVVY has announced the launch of a new parking aggregator named Justbooked. Justbooked is powered by DIVVY and has been created from feedback by DIVVY’s extensive customer base that parking is too expensive and there’s no way to compare car parks in any given location to get the best value.
Grant Fowler, CEO of DIVVY said: “We are excited to launch Justbooked today because, there is nobody else who is competing in this space in Australia. The key difference for Justbooked is that the customer journey was the focus of every step and that’s why Justbooked allows customers to search, compare, book and pay all on one site.
Parking has always been the stressful and annoying part of a commuter’s journey however, with Justbooked we’re hoping to alleviate some of that pressure and put the power back in to the hands of the customers so that they know they’ve got the best deal, in the best location and their parking is there waiting for them when they arrive at their destination.
We have developed a new market first feature which is the compare and book element of the Justbooked site. This will develop as our inventory and parking partners grow. Our mission for Justbooked is to aggregate all booking experiences around the world. Parking is where we’re starting because we know it and have the DIVVY tech to make it work, but we’re not going to stop there as many of our inventory partners have shown interest in aggregating their other services and we hope to help them with this in the very near future.”|
DIVVY has been disrupting the parking industry for over 6 years now and has proven itself to be an innovative leader in the prop-tech space by procuring partnerships with some of the largest Commercial Property companies in Australia. Not only has DIVVY impressed the property industry but we have had a working partnership with the NRMA, (Australia’s largest membership organisation), which has seen us jointly driving research and lobbying for smarter transport options in Australia.
The NRMA Group Chief Technology Officer Cormac Hodgkinson said that he is impressed to see DIVVY leading the way with Justbooked.
“NRMA Members are constantly giving us feedback on parking, and the issues parking presents to them on a day to day basis. The release of a product such as Justbooked, which could alleviate some of the cost and annoyances involved in trying to find a car space can only be a good thing. NRMA research published in the Smarter Parking report released earlier this year in conjunction with DIVVY showed that 44 per cent of drivers have returned home without completing their trip because they couldn’t find a parking space at or near their destination.
Not only does Justbooked provide a pre-booking service that gives drivers the security of knowing they have a parking space waiting for them at the end of their journey, it also empowers them to compare and find the best parking deal.
Justbooked will be a great offering for our members and through our ongoing partnership with DIVVY we look forward to see where this technology goes next.”
Justbooked is launching with parking in Sydney, Sydney Airport (Off site), Perth Airport (off site) & CBD and Melbourne Airport (Off site). Other sites are being prepared to come on board with Justbooked very soon.
