APCOA PARKING, Europe’s leading parking operator, has entered into a strategic partnership with Get My Parking (GMP), India’s principal smart parking startup.

The partnership will customise and deploy an open IoT platform that provides a seamless mobility experience across all parking touchpoints.

This digital platform will be scaled to all 13 countries in which APCOA operates more than 1.4 million car spaces at over 9000 locations.

It is an interoperable platform, integrating varied parking equipment and connecting parking spaces to cars to create an overall mobility experience.

This enables APCOA to provide the  latest consumer solutions such as their recently launched mobile app APCOA FLOW (www.apcoa.de/flow), which includes ticketless automated access and cashless exit and will soon be enhanced by pre-booking options and on-street parking payment functions.

APCOA PARKING Group CEO Philippe Op de Beeck said this strategic partnership enables us to develop our digital platform and new products very quickly and cost-effectively.

"We are therefore in a position to offer our customers additional value: The GMP technology works with existing barrier technologies in older car parks, eliminating the need to purchase a new parking system. And the digital platform’s enhanced compatibility means that we can launch many new services and partnerships in the near future,” he said.

Get My Parking Co-Founder and CEO Chirag Jain said the company is very much excited about this collaboration as its gives them a huge start in growing our international footprint.

“APCOA is the undisputed European market leader and we could not have asked for a better partner to enter the western parking market,” said Jain.

Co-founder CMO Rasik Pansare said APCOA's scale and size is the dream opportunity for testing our technology expertise.

"It is an ambitious projectand our team is ready for the responsibility to assist millions of European motorists," he said.

This partnership is a marriage of operations and technology expertise, with APCOA’s experience and scale complimenting GMP’s innovation and agility. With such synergies, both expect to grow markedly in their own domains.

GMP envisages learning a great deal from the advanced parking market of Europe and implementing that in the early-stage parking industry of India, thereby accelerating the smart parking ecosystem of India. 

Based on the new technology, APCOA will offer more customer-focused services while at the same time contribute to the smart city ecosystem with innovative solutions to help meet the many challenges facing modern cities.
