Forget ‘smart detection’, we do so much more! Quercus Technologies introduces new logo, slogan, corporate philosophy and website

For Quercus Technologies it is an end of year full of positive changes that form the basis of the growth that is expected both of the company and of the products, projects and services it provides. The global turbulent times have only reinforced the need to adapt and take advantage of the circumstances.

Technology and artificial intelligence is becoming more and more important to reduce contact with surfaces and automate parking and user experiences as much as possible. As in all sectors, user experience is fundamental.

 

New logo

The new Quercus Technologies logo retains its classic tree composed of pixels and the letters that symbolize the essence of the company: Quercus, the oak tree. The strength and stability of its roots characterize this family of trees and also Quercus Technologies.

Previously, the company’s logo had the slogan Smart detection integrated into it, a message that represented of the company’s activity at the time. However, the strategic line of Quercus Technologies in recent years has been moving towards parking guidance projects and parking services, and not only intelligent detection and license plate recognition products.

While new branches and leaves appear on the oak, it is essential that the roots—the time-honored products developed by the company—remain strong and form the foundation on which to grow.

 

New slogan – Boost the parking experience!

In line with the above mentioned, Quercus Technologies was not exclusively engaged in the production and distribution of license plate recognition equipment, but went much further. “Boost the parking experience” perfectly sums up what customers can expect with the installation of the company’s system, products and services.

Enhancing car parks means making them intelligent, optimal, improving the user experience from the moment they enter to the moment they leave the premises. This can only be achieved with a global vision of the car park and the experience of those who have successfully carried out projects of this caliber.

 

New Corporate Philosophy – Mission, Vision and Values Renewed

Every great change in a company starts with a change of vision, and with a constant desire to improve and offer better services. That is why Quercus Technologies also has a new corporate philosophy that draws on the professionalism that already characterized the company when it was founded, with the added value of experience and new horizons.

  • Mission: Innovative parking solutions to improve user experience and our customer’s business.
  • Vision: A world leader company in providing the most innovative and reliable engineering solutions to every customer.
  • Values: Professionalism, Innovation, Cooperation, Quality, Honesty.

 

New website and domain

In early 2019, the creation of the company’s two commercial and business divisions, Detection and Mobility, led to the need to reinvent a website that needed a change in both content and style. With the intention of strengthening the brand, the domain of the new website has also changed, it is now www.quercus-technologies.com including the two words that have accompanied Quercus Technologies and all that this company represents for more than 20 years.

The new website has much more information about the company: the divisions, its markets and applications, its products, its projects and references, its success stories and its Human Resources section. Quercus Technologies, a large company with international projection, must have a quality website, which perfectly reflects the products and services offered.

Blink Charging Acquires U-Go Charging and its Portfolio of EV Charging Stations

 

Transaction will add 89 additional DC fast and L2 charging stations to the expanding Blink Network

Miami Beach, FL, Nov. 24, 2020 — Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced that it has acquired the EV charging operator U-Go Stations, Inc. and its portfolio of 44 DCFC charging locations. The purchase also includes multiple grants awarded to U-Go, for the deployment of up to an additional 45 new charging stations. The charging stations are located across ten states, expanding Blink’s DCFC footprint.

“As a key contributor to the expanding EV landscape, we are continuously looking for opportunities to strategically broaden our footprint across the United States, and our acquisition of U-Go supports this growth. In addition to their existing charging locations at attractive locations such as hotels, gas stations, and auto dealerships, U-Go has substantial grant awards for more DCFC deployments in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Vermont. We look forward to installing and operating these new charging locations in early 2021,” commented Brendan Jones, Chief Operating Officer of Blink.

“We are committed to bringing affordable, convenient, and efficient charging stations to the growing population of EV drivers, and the addition of the U-Go portfolio enhances our vital role as a leading provider in the ongoing development of EV infrastructure,” added Mr. Jones.

The acquisition will provide the critical mass necessary to make significant inroads in the DC fast charging market and provide Blink a larger national presence. The U-Go charging stations will add to Blink’s current DCFC portfolio of 88 chargers, predominately found on the West Coast.

Of the existing chargers, 31 are operated on the EVGo network and will be transitioned to the Blink Network within the next 30 days. 13 are not active and will be evaluated for future upgrades. All units will be available to Blink members and guests and can be found at the Blink Mobile App and Blink Map.

Fly, Eat out, Park: ParkNews.biz Nov 17th- 23rd, 2020

Fly, Eat out, Park: ParkNews.biz Nov 17th– 23rd, 2020

 

 

Kudos to the Miami Parking Authority and PayByPhone for supporting Miami’s restaurants! Starting Nov 23rd, 2020 through Dec 24th, 2020, through campaign “We are where you dine,” customers may register on the app for the chance to win a $50.00 gift card from a participating Miami restaurant. Ninety PayByPhone customers will be randomly selected over the five-week campaign.

 

Considering that Los Angeles restaurants are being shut down again even for outdoor dinning, perhaps it is time to fly to Miami.

 

Flying what our John Van Horn and Marcy Sparrow did last week.  They both ventured to cold Chicago to work on PIE 2021.  John wrote a blog about his trip mentioning how it broke him out of complacency and got his creative juices flowing.  Seeing others in person and allowing one’s facial expressions shine, creates dynamic instead of stagnation. “ I have mentioned before that restricting face to face meetings is anathema to one’s creative juices. This little two day trip made a huge difference in my outlook. The meetings at the hotel were face to face, across a table without masks. We could see the excitement in the facial expressions of our partners in PIE 2021. They told us stories about life in the pandemic and how they were coming out of it.”

 

Further about flying, this past week, SP Plus Corporation (SP+), announced the addition of Check ‘N Fly™ baggage check-in services exclusively for valet parking customers who are traveling on domestic flights with American Airlines or Delta Air Lines at William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) in Houston, Texas.

 

In other news, both ParkMobile and Passport, brought their contactless payment option for parking to Google Pay.  “Google Pay users can pay for parking in over 240 ParkMobile cities across the U.S. without needing to download a separate parking app or create an account.”

And “When users download Google Pay on iOS and Android, Passport Parking will be made available through the Google Pay app. This allows users to pay for parking without the need to download the full Passport application.’

 

Collaborations in parking industry are thriving.  Perfect example is ABM and Smarking; ABM Increases Revenue by 95-250% with Smarking’s Dynamic Pricing Engine

 

Another collaboration is our own Parking Today and All Traffic Solutions bringing you information with the survey: Parking Industry Insights During COVID-19 and Beyond. “The good news is that we know more about COVID-19 than ever before. There is a better understanding of how the coronavirus is spread and rapid testing is available to slow down the spread of the virus. The more we know, the more comfortable our society becomes and the more comfortable they feel returning back to a sense of normal in terms of their day-to-day activity.”

 

And since it is Thanksgiving week, we must focus on the good news.  Soon I pray this lockdown and pandemic will be over.  We will all be flying, parking and dinning out.  And next year we will all see you at PIE 2021 in Chicago.

 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone.  Thank you for sharing your news with us here at ParkNews.biz and Parking Today.

 

God bless you and God bless the USA.

 

Thank you,

VANCOUVER, BC – Announcing The Miami Parking Authority launch of the “We are where you dine” campaign, in partnership with PayByPhone, designed to support Miami restaurants leading up to the holiday season.

The integrated campaign consists of offering PayByPhone customers, who park in Miami within November 23 and December 24, 2020, the opportunity to enter a holiday contest. Customers may register on the app for the chance to win a $50.00 gift card from a participating Miami restaurant. Ninety PayByPhone customers will be randomly selected over the five-week campaign.

The campaign will place highly targeted messages across social and digital media platforms; communicate with food bloggers and influencers as well as industry associations; and engage with business, economic development, and grassroots organizations. We are where you dine is aimed at encouraging customers to support an industry that has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The MPA is pleased to launch this campaign in advance of the holidays to help restaurants stay open and thrive during the holidays, which is a busy selling season under different circumstances,” said Alejandra “Alex” Argudin, chief executive officer. “This initiative reiterates the MPA’s unwavering commitment to supporting economic development in the community that it proudly serves.”

This is one of several initiatives that the Authority has launched to support the Miami community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Other campaigns include setting aside free parking spaces for restaurant pickup and delivery and parklets for al fresco dining as well as the Welcome Back, Miami campaign which doled out over $500,000 in in-kind parking fees.

LAX: PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE CONNECTING TERMINAL 3 TO PARKING STRUCTURE 3 SUCCESSFULLY REMOVED

November 23, 2020

PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE CONNECTING TERMINAL 3 TO PARKING STRUCTURE 3 SUCCESSFULLY REMOVED

The bridge removal is part of ongoing modernization activities including the construction of the Automated People Mover and the renovation of Terminals 2 and 3

The 50,000-pound north section of the bridge is lowered on to a flatbed truck for removal.

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Today, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) announced the successful demolition of a pedestrian bridge linking Parking Structure 3 to Terminal 3 within the Los Angeles International (LAX) Airport Central Terminal Area (CTA). Although the demolition of this pedestrian bridge was not originally planned to occur until late next year, the reduced traffic volume within the CTA due to the COVID-19 pandemic presented an opportunity to complete the work early with minimal disruption to airport guests.

 

“The removal of this pedestrian bridge earlier than planned is another example of our ability to adjust and be nimble as we take advantage of our lowered passenger traffic to make progress on our modernization,” said Jake Adams, Deputy Executive Director, Landside Access Modernization Program. “Removal of this bridge is integral for both the Automated People Mover project and the renovation of Terminals 2 and 3.”

 

In the days leading up to the pedestrian bridge demolition, crews removed concrete and roofing to lighten the bridge. Once that work was complete, shoring was constructed to support the structure as it was cut into two large sections. The sections were then removed via a 400-ton crane over the course of two evenings, the first during the early morning hours of Nov. 11 and the second during the early morning hours of Nov. 12. The larger of the two sections weighed over 50,000 pounds.

Parking Management and Real Estate Investment Firm, Centerpark, Acquires Three NYC Parking Facilities for $40M

 

 

The acquisition supports Centerpark’s trajectory towards becoming one of the largest parking facility owner/operators in New York City.

 

 

New York, NY – Centerpark, a New York City-based parking management and real estate investment firm, this week announced its closing of a $40 million acquisition of three parking properties in Manhattan. The acquired properties are strategically located at 159 West 53rd Street, 212 East 47th Street, and 455 Central Park West.

 

Centerpark has taken a relatively contrarian position within the parking industry by making big bets on urban parking-related real estate. Focused on repositioning parking properties in gateway cities, the company’s purchase encompasses a total of 82,000 square feet and 475 parking spaces in Manhattan’s coveted Midtown and Upper West Side neighborhoods.

 

Led by industry veteran Gregg Reuben, Centerpark’s expanding portfolio is positioning the company to become one of the city’s largest owner/operators of parking and logistics-oriented properties. To date, the company and its partners have invested $100 million to accumulate a diverse portfolio of New York City parking properties. “The long-term market fundamentals remain strong and coupled with our use of proprietary technologies and value enhancement strategies, these investments will prove to be valuable and well-priced acquisitions”, said Centerpark CEO, Gregg Reuben.

 

Both the Seller and Centerpark were represented by Brian Ezratty, Vice Chairman of Newmark, Grub, Knight & Frank. In keeping with Centerpark’s low leverage strategy, the transaction included $18,250,000 in mortgage financing from Citigroup, which was arranged by Ryan Horowitz, Managing Director of Cooper Horowitz.

Park Assist has been Awarded its Third Parking Guidance System Contract for Lake Nona Town Center

Park Assist has been Awarded its Third Parking Guidance System Contract for Lake Nona Town Center

 

 

CHESHIRE, CT – November 19th, 2020 – Park Assist® has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Lake Nona Town Center’s latest Headquarters Office (HQO) project. Developed by Tavistock Development Company, Lake Nona Town Center is a premier mixed-use destination located in Orlando, FL. The center consists of six million square feet of shopping, dining, and entertainment for guests, with a Marriott and Residence Inn on-site, an open-air social setting, and a nine-screen cinema. The HQO project will incorporate an additional office component to this site and provide parking availability for all future office employees. Equipped with Park Assist’s M4 system, Lake Nona Town Center’s latest garage will continue to deliver a superior parking experience for all office employees and guests.

Given Park Assist’s long-standing presence in Florida, the success of its previous installations on-site, and its industry-leading technology, Lake Nona chose to implement Park Assist’s camera-based M4 smart-sensor system in its newest facility. Park Assist’s proprietary M4 PGS and digital wayfinding signage offer each parker advanced guidance from garage entry to exit, removing stress and uncertainty from the parking journey and curating an enhanced customer experience. The color-coded M4 smart-sensor system guides parkers through the facility to vacant spaces using red and green lights to indicate occupancy, guaranteeing reduced search and park times, and decreased traffic.

This PGS will also include exclusive software add-ons that utilize Park Assist’s License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, such as Park Finder™ and Park Alerts™, as well as Park Surveillance™. Upon returning to the facility, Park Assist’s customer-centric Find Your Car™ feature enables guests to swiftly locate their vehicle. By merely entering all or part of their license plate number into a Park Assist enabled kiosk, parkers are guided to the exact space where their car is parked, increasing customer satisfaction and decreasing the time it takes to exit the facility.

Park Assist’s Park Alerts and Park Surveillance software add-ons help increase control and security in the garage. The Park Alerts software extension allows parking management to set automated rules and alerts, enabling operations staff to enforce policies and remain informed about parking abuse and violations within the garage. Park Assist’s Park Surveillance module enables the M4 sensors to capture streaming video of any movement in or around parking bays. With unobstructed views of each parking bay as well as the space in between vehicles, the M4 cameras can successfully capture all action in the garage, serving as a proven deterrent of theft and other criminal behaviors.

“Lake Nona has been an incredible location for the Park Assist portfolio. We are delighted and proud to work with Tavistock Development once again on our third major project for its HQO garage. Our consistent commitment to excellence has only added to the customer experience and innovation that the owner strives for throughout the development.” Said Thomas Alexander, National Channel Manager.

Site work at Lake Nona is already underway, and the installation is slated for completion by the end of 2020.

About Park Assist
Park Assist® is the parking industry’s leading camera-focused innovator with the most camera-based parking guidance installations in the world. Our patented technology helps customers effortlessly find parking spaces in real-time as well as find their cars when they return.
