The next wave of mobile phone based parking technology is being rolled out across two of America’s most populated cities, New York and Phoenix.
Pango, an Israel based company, claims to be the world’s first provider of pay by mobile phone parking solutions, developing the technology to give consumers a convenient and easy way to park using their phone.
The company says that cities and parking operators can increase their revenues, lower their operating costs and understand who their customers are. They say that this information will mean businesses can reach consumers with local offers.
The US arm of the company, headquartered in New York City, is using the launch there and in Phoenix as a platform to aggressively rollout Pango to other American cities during 2013.
In New York, PangoUSA has partnered with Imperial Parking which is the largest privately owned garage company in the city, while in Phoenix, they have partnered with Red Development’s CityScape.
