SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Dec 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Parking Concepts, Inc., has partnered with QuickPay Corp., a premier
mobile payment platform provider, to bring new payment options and
value-added services to its patrons in the Bay Area and in Southern
California. With QuickPay, Parking Concepts customers can pay for
parking with their mobile phones using the free QP QuickPay(R)
smartphone app available for iPhone(R) and Android(TM), or by SMS
text or voice.
Parking Concepts, a parking operator that leases, manages or operates
nearly 200 facilities, was founded in 1974 and has since maintained
the company's mission to provide high quality, progressive and
innovative parking services to meet its clients' needs and financial
goals. With QuickPay, Parking Concepts customers will gain the
ability to pay for parking by mobile phone, bringing ease and
convenience to the parking payment process. Furthermore, the QP
QuickPay app allows Parking Concepts parkers to easily find parking
facilities that are QP-compatible.
"We're all about providing the best service possible to our clients,
and the QP QuickPay solution offers value to our customers through
convenience and time-savings," said Jeff Spicker, manager of business
development at Parking Concepts, Inc. "As a parking operator and
manager, I value QuickPay's ability to deliver increased value and
convenience to both Parking Concepts and the parking patron while
delivering the "cool" factor to our industry. The QP QuickPay app
allows patrons to enter our gated facilities via their own personal
smartphone. No more pulling tickets or waiting in line to pay."
QP QuickPay uniquely offers a flexible solution that supports all of
Parking Concepts' parking environments, which include advanced
parking solutions for hospitals, stadiums, special events, offices
and some of the busiest airports in the United States. Now, Parking
Concepts has made the QP app available in both surface lots as well
as gated garages. Six Parking Concepts locations in the Bay Area are
now QP-compatible, including the busy Showplace Square garage in San
Francisco's Design District. Parking Concepts now also offers the QP
QuickPay service in Los Angeles at its downtown Park Fifth lot. Now
available in 14 cities total across California, Nevada, Utah, and
Colorado representing almost 15,000 spaces, QuickPay plans to
continue its expansion and roll out more locations in both Northern
and Southern California with Parking Concepts in the coming months.
"At QuickPay Corp., we identify with Parking Concepts' focus on
service. Together, we look forward to not only offering consumers a
streamlined system for finding and paying for parking, but a solution
that also allows facilities to differentiate and attract customers
through the app's discoverability feature," said Barney Pell,
QuickPay Corp. chairman and CEO. "This partnership links us to a
premier parking provider with a stellar reputation, and gives
QuickPay the opportunity to bring our service to even more locations
