ABM Parking Services Announces New Technology Solutions
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
(NYSE:ABM), a leading provider of facility solutions,
today announced ABM Parking Services (formerly Ampco System Parking) is
introducing several innovative parking solutions to enhance the ABM
parking experience. The technological upgrades include a customized
mobile app for smartphones and tablets, along with a new client website
for ease of service across all 2,000 ABM-operated parking locations in
the United States.
ABM Customized Mobile Parking App
ABM Parking Services has partnered with ParkMe to create a customized
mobile application, which gives clients access to ABM's comprehensive
parking database, providing real-time parking availability based on
location, price, vehicle type and garage occupancy.
Available to download free on iTunes, the mobile app also estimates
costs, gives door-to-door route guidance, recommends preferred parking
spots based on venue and provides drivers with a photo of the building's
entrance so they have a visual to help get them to their parking
destination. Additionally, ABM has designed a QR code way finding system
that is being deployed throughout its portfolio. By scanning an on-site
QR code with a mobile device, drivers are guided back to the building
and floor where their vehicle are located.
ABM, in partnership with QuickPay, has also introduced pay by phone
capabilities to enable drivers to quickly, conveniently and securely use
mobile phones to pay for parking at ABM-operated facilities. Drivers can
receive text message alerts when their pre-paid time is running out, and
they can also add time remotely, without having to return to their
vehicle. Parking receipts and history are also available online.
ABM Parking Consumer Website
ABM's new consumer website allows drivers to research ABM-operated
parking locations and make reservations and transactions from their
computers. The recently launched website, which can be found at abm.com/parkinglocator
(select the 'Parking Locator' icon), includes every ABM-operated parking
location in the country.
Through the website, each ABM parking facility has its own page with
location, photos, rates, operating hours, entrance points, payment
types, coupons, special event rates and amenities. Drivers can easily
find parking locations, make reservations, download coupons and sign up
for monthly parking and e-invoicing.
"The mobile app and website provide solutions to fulfill virtually any
ABM parking need for clients and drivers with just a few clicks on a
computer or mobile device," said ABM Parking Services President Mark
Muglich. "ABM is committed to offering first-class service, and cutting
edge technology is a key component of making sure we're delivering on
