Helping to Lead the Digital Revolution
in Sustainable Mobility
The vision of liveable cities and smart communities, where people can easily connect with each other, jobs and amenities - emphasizes the critical importance of emerging mobility services in achieving a new level of physical and digital connectedness. With the growing urban population, cities need to create urban transport which is smart and efficient and can accommodate growth without increasing congestion and transport-related pollution.
Sustainability is at the heart of the best parking practices. Properly addressed, parking policy contributes to Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP), satisfying the needs of public transport, micro-mobility, logistics, cyclists and pedestrians. Smart Parking will also play a crucial role in future deployments of autonomous technologies and maximizing the benefits of self-driving cars. We believe that low-carbon autonomous vehicles (AVs) can support the objectives of sustainable mobility by complementing multimodal transport modes - especially shared and public transport.
Harnessing opportunities provided by the technological advancement, we set new standards in the parking industry, optimizing parking assets through digitalization and a wide range of smart parking technology solutions which benefit our clients - representing both commercial and public sector. The prism through which we view the parking industry is Smart Mobility ecosystem, where sustainability is at the centre of urban mobility planning. Regardless of the mode of mobility - whether it is a private car, shared car scheme, e-scooter, bike, ride-hailing or electric vehicle - availability of parking space guarantees convenience and can influence the mobility choice. We consider parking data as an element of the interconnected mobility ecosystem, important for integration of all transport modes in one single interface, known as Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS).
Through working with different stakeholders in the area of Smart Mobility, we represent a rare combination of international expertise in intelligent and New Mobility solutions. Supporting our clients from the consultancy side is complemented by cooperation with the software house company (Ekinnolab) from which NaviParking originates – which enables us to provide our clients with real solutions addressing their business needs.
Combining sector-specific knowledge and business insight with the technological capability and using cutting edge tools, we deliver solutions that solve complex and diverse mobility problems, maximizing the value for our clients. Throughout the lenses of efficiency and the environmental context, we are committed to providing high-quality consultancy services in all areas of parking and accompanying Smart Mobility services. Our passion for those topics is driven by the ambition to help forge a path towards a vision of interconnected mobility in future cities.
