On busy days in Indore, people have to wait in the car queue for a long time to get into the parking which is a big hurdle and also, finding a parking spot remains stressful.
Even with the thousands of car parks around Indore (Indore is one of the most populated cities in the world), most of these parking spaces are not utilises to their capacity especially on weekends, off hours or holidays.Here is how we can help:
To solve this problem we got the idea to use the latest iBeacon technology which can automate the whole process using just an app.
Using this tech we can uniquely recognise the customer and automatically pay for his parking using the credit card information stored in the iParking app .
The customers do not even have to take out the phone from their pocket. Everything will be a seamless and fast experience. You can use use our app to find list of available parking spaces in the city, select a space , drive down there and park your car. Payment is done automatically when the Beacon device placed in the parking space recognises your phone. After the payment is automatically done, the customer will get a notification on their phone with the digital receipt of the payment.
Also, since iBeacons are also micro location devices,I have the location of my car and parking space stored so i can never lose my car :-)
Using the iBeacon technology can make the whole process of finding the right parking spot and paying for it a seamless experience for the user.
If the tech is used widely, the user just has to drive to the parking, and leave. The payment can be done in the background automatically by the app and beacon combination.
Overall it will result in a pleasant user experience for all the users, real time availability of data and parking spaces, efficient and less demanding.
We are targeting everyone who has a car and a smart Phone.
The parking is just a baby step to provide much more express shopping experience to the shoppers. Using the iBeacon technology we can also send targeted offers to the customers, loyalty, incorporate more apis (e.g Just park api) to allow people to get parking for less etc.
We also plan on creating an iparking dashboard where admins can monitor and control beacons in Indore, all over the parking spaces.
The technology can either be used as an standalone app or it can be integrated into the current if any Indore parking app.
