British Parking Awards 2016 finalist Parkonomy.com is partnering with Car Parking Management Limited (CPM) to provide consumers with the ability to book and pay for their car parking online for the first time. With 15 years’ experience in car park management, CPM manages the planning, installation and maintenance of numerous car parks across the country. They provide the signage, pay and display machines and manage the cash collection, often at no cost to car park owners.
Parkonomy.com is able to offer a free, flexible and advanced approach to car parking automation, and at no cost to the owner/operator which proved very attractive to CPM; taking phone call bookings was proving to be very costly and time consuming. CPM has never been able to offer consumers an online payment solution for their car parks before, so they hadn’t appreciated how simple it was to set-up and use. Parkonomy.com now takes care of the administration, bookings and payments for CPM and the flexibility of Parkonomy.com’s platform means that CPM retains control of all information featured on the website. It enables the company to change, update, add or remove car parks easily, as and when required, all at no cost to CPM.
Bill Ideson, Managing Director of Car Parking Management Ltd, commented: “The services that Parkonomy.com provides mesh perfectly with our business. We manage car parks for our clients nationally and the services that Parkonomy supply, work succinctly with the business that we run. The system provides our customers with an online ticketing solution – and we all understand that cashless payments are perfect for the current marketplace.”
Consumers have also responded really well to the introduction of online payment. Its simplicity is proving to be a popular solution for many consumers because of the ready access to the Internet, either by smart phone or computer. CPM has reported that the response from using Parkonomy.com’s services has been very positive, mainly because customers no longer have to pay over the phone or use a pay and display machine.
Jim Harrow, Head of Business Development at Parkonomy.com said: “We are delighted with the response we have received from CPM and their customers about the simplicity of our services. We’re particularly pleased that CPM created a direct link from their website to Parkonomy.com because this saves everyone time and effort and subsequently allows CPM staff to concentrate on growing their business. We work hard to make it easier for our clients and customers to receive and make payments, so it’s fantastic to see that CPM and its customers are impressed with our platform and are gaining immediate benefits as a result.”
