When planning of going somewhere, the next thing that comes to your mind is where are you going to park your car. Is there a good parking place available nearby? and how is it going to be? Parking In Motion (PIM) is providing you all these information right on your smartphone which you can access while driving to get rid of this huge parking hassle. With PIM you don’t have to worry about parking anymore.
Parking In Motion has already developed a huge parking information database covering top 300+ US cities, top 50+ Canadian cities and top 200+ European cities with over 20,000 public parking lots enhanced with rates, hours, entrance points and occupancy information. This database is constantly expanding with more parking information over time making it the largest of its kind.
Parking In Motion not only gives you the chance to choose cheap parking place around, but also provides real-time availability information so that you don’t have to get disappointed after going to a busy parking lot. The second part is very crucial and cumbersome for Parking In Motion. Getting updated booking data instantly from these individual parking places spreading across the world is not an easy task. PIM is working closely with parking lot operators and municipalities to make this thing possible. We believe this is where the success of this application lies, if PIM can handle this part properly there is less doubt about the success of this innovative start-ups.
Currently, Parking In Motion is offering free iPhone application which allows a driver to search and find nearest and cheapest parking lot on map with entrance direction and other details. From there he/she can also reserve parking remotely without paying any extra fee. Parking In Motion shares revenue with garage operators from the bookings made through its system. Soon PIM is coming with Android and BlackBerry version of the application to get this system widely available to more people.
Parking In Motion has also made its database open to auto industry, navigation systems and developers through its SDK and API. Businesses can take advantage of this large parking database and make revenue serving parking data through their own websites or mobile apps or navigation systems.
