April 14, 2015

Integrates Cutting-Edge Cloud Technology with Parking App in
San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., Baltimore & Minneapolis

WHAT: Parking Panda, the nationwide leader in parking reservations, today launched PandaScan, a cloud-based solution that integrates cutting-edge scanning technology with its digital and mobile parking platform. PandaScan is now live with a number of parking locations in San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Minneapolis, with plans to further expand over the next year.

Parking Panda is the first parking app to integrate branded on-site scanning technology with existing hardware via its platform, enabling it to deliver a seamless experience for drivers from start to finish. Drivers simply reserve parking in advance or in real-time through Parking Panda’s app or on the Company’s website. As they roll up to one of the many participating lots and garages in the aforementioned cities, drivers will be able to gain entry to the parking facility by holding their Parking Panda-equipped smartphone up to the parking facilities’ branded scanner, allowing users have full control over their parking experience and save valuable time. There’s no need to worry about an attendant upon arrival, allowing for easy entry and exit at the user’s discretion – along with in and out privileges.
