MIAMI, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Prkfast, a tech startup with an innovative mobile app for searching and paying for off-street parking, today announced a new agreement with SAP to provide cashless parking services via SAP® Vehicles Network.
Through the agreement with SAP, Prkfast enables any mobile user to search for the parking facility nearest to the user's current location or desired destination, and make a reservation to secure the parking spot and pay for it in advance. By connecting to SAP Vehicles Network, Prkfast is able to access and book over 1,000,000 parking spots, amongst 8,000 garages in North America and Europe.
"SAP Vehicles Network offers a consolidated view of inventory by merging sourcing of many parking options from different aggregators, thereby bringing value and saving precious time to the user, by not having to open multiple apps when searching for the absolute best parking in one of the 235 supported cities," said Damián Fernández, CEO of Prkfast.
SAP Vehicles Network harnesses the power of SAP Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things and offers member companies and partners the opportunity to create new mobility services and apps for consumer use. It improves the way drivers can benefit from mobile and geo-location services. This end-to-end digital mobile user experience can cover the entire trip, helping drivers before and after the journey as well. SAP Vehicles Network also allows app providers and automotive companies an opportunity to gain access to tens of thousands of mobile payment-enabled parking garages and gas stations in key markets. As a result, companies can improve the driver and passenger's digital experience by using mobile wallets and third-party apps for an integrated in-vehicle experience.
Prkfast is an elegant, simple and powerful app that connects to SAP Vehicles Network to obtain a list of garage locations from parking aggregators. It searches for the best parking option nearest to the user's current location or desired destination, and provides details in a modern UI, including images of parking facilities, description and amenities, combined with real-time availability and the capability to securely book for a spot in advance.
