Umojo Expands Commitment to Drive Better Urban Mobility with Award of Sourcewell Curb Management Contract




Cooperative Municipal procurement leader awards Umojo with Preferred Contract Supplier Status for Municipal Curb Management Technologies



Chicago, IL – February 7, 2024Umojo announced today that it is delighted to have been chosen as a contract supplier of Curb Management Technology and Services by Sourcewell, a leader in cooperative purchasing facilitation for public entities across North America.

Sourcewell, A self-sustaining government organization, has over 40 years of dedicated service helping government and education entities operate more efficiently through a variety of solutions, including cooperative RFP facilitation and vetting 3rd party vendors for ease of procurement and faster contracting.

In 2023, The U.S. Department of Transportation opened a grant application program for Municipalities to drive Smart City initiatives. Cities were encouraged to submit innovative program proposals with the purpose of improving safety, efficiency, and quality of life in urban corridors. Of those cities selected to receive grant funding for their program proposals, the majority chose Sourcewell to facilitate the vendor selection and cooperative RFP process on their behalf, thereby creating a simpler, more efficient procurement process for each city.

Sourcewell evaluated vendor proposals as they relate to the scope of services set forth by the organization and participating cities. With an award from Sourcewell and becoming a Sourcewell Awarded Supplier, each participating city can choose solutions from Umojo without having to issue a formal RFP process themselves. Umojo is pleased to be one of the few selected vendors to become a Sourcewell Awarded Supplier, achieving the highest overall ranking amongst all vendor submissions.

We are excited to partner with grant recipient cities to help solve these problems and improve the lives of citizens and businesses, while promoting a safer, more equitable curb inventory.”

AppyWay partners with Connected Kerb to revolutionise electric vehicle charging and parking




  • The UK needs to deploy 300,000 more electric vehicle (EV) chargers in the next decade to meet driver demands ahead of the 2035 ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles.
  • AppyWay and Connected Kerb have partnered to transform the way drivers find available EV charging bays and how councils deploy, manage, and monitor charging infrastructure.
  • The partnership includes the integration of Connected Kerb’s charging solution with AppyWay’s The Parking Platform™ real-time bay occupancy and insights.
  • The partnership and integration will empower councils with the information they need to monitor EV charging facilities and plan rollout to scale their decarbonisation and net-zero ambitions.

Tuesday 24th October 2023, London, UK: AppyWay, Europe’s most-awarded intelligent parking and kerbside management company, is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Connected Kerb, an industry-leading provider of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

Through the integration of The Parking Platform™ powered by AppyWay and Connected Kerb’s cutting-edge charging infrastructure, a seamless ecosystem has been created, allowing drivers to effortlessly locate available electric vehicle charging bays.

As environmental concerns and government-led initiatives such as the ULEZ expansion continue to drive the adoption of electric vehicles, AppyWay and Connected Kerb’s integration is leading the charge in enabling local governments to meet the charging demands of today’s EV drivers and prepare for the 2035 ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles.

Dan Hubert, Founder & CEO of AppyWay, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership: “Teaming up with Connected Kerb marks another significant milestone in our mission to help cities decarbonise through innovative technology. The UK is at a pivotal moment in its EV charge point rollout and it’s the decisions that are made today that will impact whether local governments meet their infrastructure targets by 2035. Partnerships such as this are crucial in understanding charging demand and planning rollout in a scalable manner. By integrating The Parking Platform™ with Connected Kerb’s charging solutions, we’re making electric vehicle charging and parking a hassle-free experience for everyone, drivers and local authorities alike.”

Connected Kerb’s Head of Digital, Ben Boutcher-West also shared his excitement: “Our collaboration with AppyWay is a pivotal moment in making electric vehicle charging infrastructure reliable, inclusive and convenient for everyone. Together, we are poised to deliver a hassle-free charging experience for drivers and make it easy for councils to manage and monitor charging infrastructure, while also putting our planet first.”

The partnership between AppyWay and Connected Kerb represents a sizable step towards encouraging and accelerating electric vehicle adoption, and the rollout of charging infrastructure.

UT Arlington Launches Parking Finder With Modii Through NCTCOG Grant

UT Arlington Launches Parking Finder With Modii Through NCTCOG Grant



Modii, a provider of modern mobility solutions, has announced the rollout of their digital parking platform this fall. Funded through a $500,000 grant between the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the University of Texas at Arlington, the web app gives users real-time knowledge of available parking spaces, electric vehicle charging locations and garage/lot percentage occupancy.

During the next 12 months, students will conduct quantitative research into smart campus mobility and run focus groups to assess the transportation improvements on campus as a direct result of the project.

The UTA Parking Finder is currently live. Additional parking lot parking sensors will be added during the next three years until approximately 85% of all parking spaces are covered. A Spanish version of the app is being developed and will debut later this semester.

Modii also has partnered with other vendors to illustrate payment systems – enabling students, staff and visitors the ability to make informed parking decisions in real-time. Users also can search for parking availability personalized to their individual permit entitlements so they can quickly pinpoint appropriate spaces.

Greg Hladik, executive director of UT Arlington Auxiliary Services, said the data shows that this system works. 

“The system will help daily users find parking faster, ensuring the best use of existing parking facilities,” Hladik said.

Jay Rosenberger, UT Arlington professor and interim chair of the Department of Industrial, Manufacturing and Systems Engineering (IMSE), said the upcoming research will assess how effectively the tool improves safety, efficiency and sustainability of UTA’s campus mobility. Chen Kan, IMSE assistant professor, is part of the research team for this project.

Modii President Mark Frumar said, “Parking has historically been a challenge at most large universities, but it doesn’t have to be. Commuting students and staff, as well as campus visitors, should be able to find a parking spot with ease and eliminate the worry of being late to their class or event. The UTA Parking Finder aims to solve that challenge, and we’re both honored and grateful to receive the generous grant that will propel research into smart campus mobility. The findings from this project will pave the way for future initiatives and allow UTA to be recognized as a pioneer in the evolution of smart campus technology.”

In addition to simplifying parking across the UTA campus, Modii has also deployed an additional solution to provide the UTA parking administration with valuable parking utilization data.

The tool, Modii PI, features a dashboard with live parking metrics of the UTA campus, as well as the ability to generate reports to inform the UTA administration on the optimal adjustments of parking allocations to meet the demand measured. Parking administrators will be able to analyze, compare and report on the utilization of their parking assets for data-driven planning decisions.

With detailed insight into parking, UTA will be able to plan strategically for games, events and construction, or any other factors that could impact on-campus parking.

About Modii

Modii provides modern mobility solutions via a unified platform of digital infrastructure, data integration, and parking intelligence. The innovative technology supports the digital transformation of urban areas and campuses while empowering thoughtful parking planning through data-driven insights.

Improving the patient family experience one step at a time, Children’s Hospital of Atlanta selects TKH Security for smart parking system

Improving the patient family experience one step at a time, Children’s Hospital of Atlanta selects TKH Security for smart parking system



CHESHIRE, CT – July 11, 2023 – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) recently began installation for a previously awarded Automated Parking Guidance System (APGS) contract with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) for the parking facilities at the new $1.5 billion Arthur M. Blank Hospital.

Announced in June 2023, U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals 2023-2024 list ranked CHOA among the nation’s top pediatric hospitals for the 20th year. Four of CHOA’s specialties ranked in the top 10 and eight of their specialties ranked in the top 20.  Additionally, CHOA was ranked the No. 1 pediatric hospital in Georgia for the 4th consecutive year.

Slated to open in 2024, CHOA’s Arthur M. Blank Hospital will be a 446-bed children’s hospital in Brookhaven, Georgia. The hospital will be a Level 1 trauma center and will be affiliated with Emory University School of Medicine. As the largest and only freestanding pediatric healthcare system in Georgia, the 1.5 million square foot hospital is located on a 20-acre campus with greenspace and walking trails for patients, families, and employees.

“CHOA simply wants to provide an exceptional experience for its patients and staff.  With TKH Security, and their history of successful large-scale projects and extensive hospital experience, JE Dunn can help CHOA accomplish their goal even in the parking facilities,” said Brian McElroy, JE Dunn ConstructionProject Manager.

With an APGS, CHOA’s dedication to the patient family experience extends to more than 4,000 parking spaces in two parking garages. Designed to provide a stress-free and convenient parking experience, the M5 camera-based parking guidance system is tailored to remove obstacles from the parking process for the driver. The system accomplishes this by enabling each parker to make an easy, smooth transition from initial garage entry to an open space — while improving overall traffic flow throughout the campus and even in the surrounding areas.

Monitoring up to six parking spaces simultaneously, M5 smart sensors will stream HD video to the central database, enhancing security and surveillance. Capturing footage 24/7, Facilities Management can perform real-time monitoring of occupancy and activity with interactive dashboards using live data. For patients, families, visitors, and employees, the sensors provide occupancy status of the 4,000 parking spaces. The green and red LED lights on the sensors will navigate parkers to available spaces. By reducing time to park by up to 63%, the parking guidance system also lessens vehicle emissions and fuel consumption.

“Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta new pediatric hospital is the largest healthcare project in the history of the state of Georgia. We are honored to be a part of this revolutionary project and look forward to providing excellent future patient experience to patients, families, and staff utilizing our camera-based technology,” said Thomas Alexander, Regional Sales Executive, Southeast. “We anticipate installation completion at the end of this year.”

CHOA’s APGS package also includes:

  • VMS-NAV signs placed at the entrance and key decision points within the garages to assist parkers with wayfinding,
  • An API package that provides Facilities Management with a secure connection to a limitless set of third-party parking related solutions,
  • And INX with real time dashboards and business intelligence for Facilities Management to maximize and streamline parking operations.

TKH Security is proud to partner with JE Dunn Construction on this project.
