EasyPark first digital supplier to join the European Parking Association
Rotterdam, Friday, 22/09/2017 – Leading smart parking digital supplier, EasyPark Group, has joined the European Parking Association (EPA) as an associate member. The Swedish-gone global park-tech company is the latest to join the EPA’s long list of National Associations and renowned parking operators, international and national industry groups.
EPA President, Laurence Bannerman announced the news on the closing day of the European Parking Association’s annual congress in Rotterdam.
“We are very pleased to welcome EasyPark Group as our newest associate member. EasyPark’s mission connects well with the EPA’s own wishes to improve services for motorists by providing easy and generally accepted cashless payment systems, and they have a proven track record of delivering services to the highest industry standards,” said Mr Bannerman.
Associate members represent the supply industry offering parking related products and services to EPA full members.
“It’s great to have such an innovative leader join the association. We look forward to working alongside EasyPark as it continues to grow and deliver new value adding services for our members, in our digitalization working groups,” he added.
Win-Win-Win for cities, operators and motorists
Group CEO, Johan Birgersson, said joining the EPA presents a great opportunity for EasyPark to share its vision for Parking Excellence.
“EasyPark’s vision is to create more livable cities and to realise that vision we have developed a framework called Parking Excellence. That means helping motorists quickly find available parking spaces and seamlessly pay for them, while also helping cities channel on-street parking pressure in congested areas towards off-street garages,” he said.
“This not only benefits drivers by saving valuable time; it also helps cities reduce congestion and parking operators to improve their off-street parking space utilization. Drivers save time, operators improve occupancy, cities lower congestion without losing revenue – when space is better utilized everybody wins.”
Birgersson added he is proud that EasyPark is represented among a group of such prominent industry leaders.
“The EPA represents the very highest standards in the industry. I look forward to continuing to partner with cities and parking operators to help build smarter and more livable cities right across Europe together,” he said.
EasyPark Group has the largest coverage in Europe, with a presence in almost 600 cities across 11 markets and contracts with about 100 parking operators for complementing off-street coverage. This week the company announced an expansion of its coverage in more than 80 cities in The Netherlands.
EasyPark Group also recently unveiled its brand new ‘Parking Dashboard’, an all-in-one command centre for parking, providing cities and parking operators with unparalleled insights and a comprehensive overview of the current parking situation in their city. Along with this, EasyPark introduced ‘Parking Search Time’, a key performance indicator which has generated a lot of interest among politicians, traffic authorities and motorists.
