Modii Partners with the City of Colorado Springs to Help Drivers ConvenientlyFind Parking 




COLORADO SPRINGS, Co. March 6, 2023 – Modii, a provider of smart mobility solutions, announced their partnership with the City of Colorado Springs to empower City of Colorado Springs Parking Enterprise, residents and commuters with its smart parking platform. 

Modii’s technology comprises digital infrastructure, data integration, and parking intelligence to give users the resources they need for smart parking planning. The platform is designed to empower the city in the planning and management of parking, and their ability to serve the residents and commuters of Colorado Springs. 

“Anyone who’s tried to find parking in Colorado Springs, or any other metropolitan area knows firsthand that the experience can be frustrating,” said Mark Frumar, President of Modii. “We’re thrilled to partner with the City of Colorado Springs to give residents and commuters access to convenient parking solutions at their fingertips, along with the data-driven insights that will help parking administrators optimize parking supply to meet customer demand at all times.”

Today, the Colorado Springs Parking Finder powered by Modii is live and ready for use. The tool displays the digital infrastructure of curbside parking assets and the location of:

  •       Free parking
  •       Paid parking (including rates)
  •       Handicapped meter parking
  •       Commercial loading zones
  •       Restricted and unrestricted free parking
  •       Bus shuttles (Zeb)
  •       Motorcycle only parking
  •       Passenger loading areas
  •       Off street parking
  •       Pike ride hubs

With the ability to find the best place to park quickly and with ease, motorists in Colorado Springs will enjoy a more convenient, hassle-free driving experience. The Parking Finder will also help alleviate traffic congestion by streamlining parking. This delivers benefits for businesses whose customers have to park on the street by reducing the frustration of having to drive around to find an open parking spot before shopping, arriving for an appointment, or enjoying a meal.

“The City of Colorado Springs Parking Enterprise is excited to partner with Modii. After meetings with Modii, it was clear their Parking Finder should be the next step forward with technology. Modii’s commitment to grow their platform and develop customizations to meet our needs gave us the comfort we needed to form this partnership.” – John Crawford, Parking Manager at City of Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs is home to more than 483,000 people – and employs over 287,000 people, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Accommodating so many drivers throughout the bustling city has its challenges, and parking can be a significant one. To address these challenges, Colorado Springs decision makers have sought innovative solutions from outside sources. 

Modii has been working in Colorado Springs since 2021, when the company was named winner of the Colorado Smart City Alliance Revive! Challenge. The challenge invited participants to provide smart cities solutions with a focus on resiliency and equity. Modii (Spot Parking at the time) was awarded for its dynamic and flexible model for curb use consultation activities and efficient guidance of road users.

Parker Technology + Ocra Announce Strategic Alliance and Introduce Partner API



Indianapolis, IN (March 6, 2023)— Parker Technology and Ocra officially announce a strategic alliance and introduce their innovative partner API to solve on-site friction for customers using third-party reservation platforms. This alliance enables the two companies to maintain their vendor-neutral positions in the market, unlocking opportunities for Parker Technology and Ocra to work together to propel and accelerate growth through their existing relationships.

During the formation of this partnership, Parker Technology and Ocra mutually identified the need for an integration that surfaces essential transaction data for customers who push the call button with reservation-related issues. The result is the partner API, which runs on Ocra’s rails and enables Parker Technology to access the exact information needed in that moment to help the customer enter or exit the facility most efficiently.

The partner API benefits parking operators and technology companies who can now use Ocra’s network of complex custom integrations with customer demand channels, like third-party reservation platforms, to resolve in-lane friction and deliver a better customer experience.

“Ethan and his impressive team have built a company with a compelling vision to help parking operators solve problems caused by the proliferation of technology. I couldn’t be more excited to join his board and help the company achieve that vision. This strategic alliance is a perfect example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts and our customers will instantly appreciate the value our two companies create together,” said Brian Wolff, President & CEO of Parker Technology.

“We are hyper-selective on raising investment, as the most important factor for us is value added beyond the capital itself,” says Ethan Glass, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder of Ocra. “We are fortunate to have a multitude of funding opportunities and are inspired by Parker Technology’s vision as our lead investor, which is force-multiplied by the other very notable investors joining our round. Brian and his team also believe that a rising tide lifts all ships. There is a great deal of synergy between our two companies in terms of being Switzerland and our commitment to mutually beneficial partnerships.”

By removing friction for parkers experiencing redemption and access issues with third-party reservations, Parker Technology and Ocra solve an industry-wide problem and create connectivity between multiple technologies for win-win-win outcomes for customers, operators, and technology companies.
