Everfield acquires ParkHere, software specialist for smart parking

July 10, 2024

Munich, July 9, 2024. Everfield has acquired Munich-based software company ParkHere (https://park-here.eu/), a leading provider of smart parking technology. ParkHere‘s solution makes it easy for companies to allocate and manage parking spaces and electric vehicle charging stations for their employees. Parking spaces are digitally recorded in the ParkHere software, employees can manage their bookings with a mobile app, and a sensor provides automatic entry to garages using a QR Code or license plate recognition technology. The company’s customer base is growing strongly, and includes Henkel, Telefónica, Zurich Versicherung and HochTief. As a new member of Everfield, ParkHere continues to strengthen its growth plans. 

“With its intelligent all-in-one solution, ParkHere is one of the leading providers of digital parking management systems in the DACH region,” says Oscar Koberling, Country Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland at Everfield. “As a highly specialised, innovative technology company, ParkHere fits perfectly with Everfield. Together with ParkHere’s experienced management team, we want to build on previous successes and drive future growth.”

ParkHere offers companies a complete solution consisting of software and hardware to digitally capture and efficiently manage existing parking spaces. “With the help of an app, authorised employees can see in real time what parking is available and make reservations,” explains Clemens Techmer, Co-Founder and new Co-CEO of ParkHere. “The tedious search for parking is a thing of the past, and employees can begin their working days stress-free.” The ParkHere app also integrates with Microsoft Teams, allowing employees to reserve their parking space using software applications they use regularly during work hours. Finally, employees who pay for their parking spaces at work can do so based on time used, rather than a monthly lump sum. 

ParkHere also controls access to car parks or parking spaces via a digital access system. By means of license plate recognition or QR Code access, employees or visitors gain access, for example by automatically opening a barrier. “The combination of a digital dashboard, mobile app and physical access terminals for parking garages makes parking easy to plan”, says René Rather, Co-CEO of ParkHere. “Companies can also use the flexible booking system to manage charging spots for electric vehicles. This means that employees can reserve charging spots for electric vehicles and control the charging process via the app.”

“Smart parking solutions are an important building block for sustainable mobility concepts in urban areas. This has true growth potential”, says Everfield’s Head of Acquisitions Henning Schreiber. “ParkHere has many large companies among its long-standing customers and has a strong growth trajectory for the future.”  

“Joining Everfield opens up a number of great new opportunities for us and our customers”, says Felix Harteneck, former CEO and Co-Founder of ParkHere. “We have experienced continuous and fast organic growth since our inception in 2015. With Everfield as a strategic partner, we will continue to expand our offering and develop our products in the future.” 

The management team and more than 30 employees remain with the company. ParkHere remains available to customers and partners at their Munich office. 

Jaber Tannay, Senior Vice President of Corum Group Intl acted as the M&A adviser to ParkHere.
