The problem

When Parking Sense won the largest parking guidance contract ever awarded in the United States it asked Company-X to help it deliver.

The Cambridge, New Zealand, inventor of innovative parking technology turned to Company-X to help with the 21,000 space parking contract with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Other big customers include CBRE Galleria Office Towers in Dallas, Texas, the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, and the Walter Reid National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland.

The solution

Deloitte Fast 50 Rising Star Parking Sense partnered with Company-X worked on a trio of innovative parking products.

ParkUp Pay is Parking Sense’s smartphone application that enhances and streamlines the driver’s paid parking experience.

SpaceNet is a car park management system for collecting real-time analytics and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) from parking garages.

Where is my Car is a smartphone application that helps drivers find their parked car inside a multistory car park building?

The end goal of all of the projects was to bring smart technology into the outdated parking industry.

The verdict

“Company-X has been fabulous to work with,” said Parking Sense Global Chief Operating Officer Stacey King.

“It’s going to be an ongoing relationship.”

“Company-X has the flexibility to ramp up with the depth and breadth and quality of staff when we need all hands to the pump.

“Parking Sense USA, headed by chief executive Jake Bezzant from Cambridge, was the only exhibitor at the recent International Parking Institute Conference and Expo to have a working solution to demonstrate the parking process from the beginning to the end.

“Despite the time difference between the expo, in New Orleans, and New Zealand, they were always available for technical support.”

“Our appearance at the International Parking Institute Conference and Expo proves that our collaboration with Company-X enables us to be a real innovator of parking technology,” said Parking Sense USA chief executive Jake Bezzant.

“We are thrilled to be working with another New Zealand company taking on the world.”
