Beam Global Hits Record First Quarter Deliveries and the Second Biggest Quarter in Company History

 

 

SAN DIEGO, May 03, 2022  — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, announced the highest number of system deliveries in the first quarter of any year in the company’s history. Q1 was also the second biggest quarter for deliveries in Beam’s history following the record fourth quarter 2021.

“Q1 has historically been a slower quarter for us but not this year. The momentum we built in 2021 continues with a first quarter record start in deliveries for Beam Global,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global. “The 2021 historic highs in new orders set the pace for record revenue and deliveries in 2021 but also, importantly, enabled us to continue that pace and deliver record results in the first quarter of 2022 as our investments in sales, operations and manufacturing deliver returns. With pipeline also at a new high, we see no sign of this abating, boding well for continued momentum and growth for the year.”

Net Zero Emission Initiatives continue to expand at the federal, state and local levels and with private enterprise. President Biden signed Executive Order 14008 and subsequent Executive Order 14057 with its accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan which calls for 100% Zero-Emission Vehicle Acquisitions by 2035, including 100% light-duty acquisitions by 2027. California Governor Gavin Newsom presented a $286.4 billion budget proposal, dubbed the “California Blueprint,” in January. The plan suggests spending $22.5 billion to address the burgeoning climate crisis in the state, allocating $6.1 billion to electric vehicle related initiatives. California also became the first state to commit to effectively banning sales of new, internal combustion engine or gas-powered vehicles by 2035. Beam is experiencing increased order activity from Federal, State and local governments as well as enterprise customers.

INRIX Parking Delivers New, Innovative Solutions for Automakers, Businesses and Urban City Planners to Understand Parking Demand

INRIX Parking Delivers New, Innovative Solutions for Automakers, Businesses and Urban City Planners to Understand Parking Demand

 

 

Leveraging accurate and up-to-date on-street and off-street parking data and driving behaviors,
Parking Demand helps predict parking usage, reduce last-mile congestion, and cut emissions

 

 

KIRKLAND, Wash., May 2, 2022  — Today, INRIX, Inc., a world leader in mobility analytics and connected car services, announced INRIX Parking Demand, a first-of-its-kind innovation to identify exact areas in each city experiencing high parking demand and predict future needs. By combining up-to-date parking and vehicle data, automakers, businesses, and cities now have access to accurate parking predictions to help reduce congestion, stress, and tail pipe emissions.

INRIX Parking Demand combines insights from INRIX Parking and INRIX Trips to better understand driving behavior by incorporating historical, real-time, and predictive parking availability information along with trip insights to provide a complete picture of the local parking demand. Automakers, public sector, and businesses can integrate Parking Demand into existing systems and easily scale to meet evolving needs, unlike alternative solutions that require hardware and are expensive to purchase, install, and maintain.

“Parking is a complex equation and historically it’s challenging to provide drivers with an accurate prediction of parking availability at their destination,” said Greg Corley, senior vice president of automotive at INRIX. “INRIX Parking Demand improves the driver experience by identifying the parking hot spots near their destination. We help our customers tap into reliable, high-quality data to optimize parking operations from end-to-end without new costly hardware.”

Automakers, businesses, and cities can tap into Parking Demand to identify parking hot spots, improve product experience and address parking pain for customers, for example:

  • Automakers can now direct drivers to the most appropriate parking lots, even in high-demand areas
  • Urban planners can accurately predict parking demand in congested areas to manage availability, improve traffic flow, and make routing decisions
  • Curbside management solutions can create data-driven models to predict parking trends and understand patterns and behaviors that enable effective decision making

“The unique combination of our Trips and Parking data allows us to more accurately predict demand and deliver the best experience for drivers,” added Corley. “It’s not just being able to list a number of parking spots in a city but it’s about leveraging real intelligence to know where the highest parking need is in order to ensure the best coverage and guide the driver to the right location.”

INRIX leverages big data and innovative technologies to provide a future-proof parking management solution, with customers having access to both on-street and off-street parking data that covers over 312,000 locations, in nearly 20,000 cities and over 150 countries.

City of Columbus Announces a New Way to Pay for Parking

City of Columbus Announces a New Way to Pay for Parking

Implementation of kiosks begins in early May

 

 

Starting in May, the City of Columbus will begin replacing parking meters with new pay-by-plate kiosks to modernize and streamline the payment process for customers. Mobile payment using the ParkColumbus app will continue to be a convenient option.

The Division of Parking Services will begin meter removal on May 3 in the Brewery District, then move north through downtown Columbus, the Short North Arts District and the University District as kiosks are installed. By the end of May, mobile payment and the new pay-by-plate kiosks will completely replace meter payment, except for a limited number of handicapped-accessible meters and 30-minute meters to support brief parking for use such as pickup and drop-off.

“The City of Columbus continues to enhance the customer experience for on-street parking by adding greater convenience with better technology tools,” said Jennifer L. Gallagher, Director of the Department of Public Service. “A modernized system supports equitable access and turnover as our city—and curb lane demand—keep growing.”

ParkColumbus will provide functionality updates to the app for smartphone users as well as additional mobile payment methods for those without a smartphone, including scan-to-pay, text-to-pay and call-to-pay options.

When customers don’t have a phone handy, the new kiosks from Flowbird Urban Intelligence offer a simpler way to pay than meters. After parking, customers can identify their mobile pay zone using street signs where they parked, walk to the nearest kiosk, enter their license plate number and pay using a credit or debit card or coins. They may even add time to their parking spot when using the new kiosks in the Downtown, Brewery, Short North and University Districts.

The new parking system makes customers’ lives easier by opening up more parking spaces and simplifying parking zone numbers. Existing zones will be consolidated into fewer larger parking zones, making it easier to identify zone numbers.

“For the City of Columbus, streamlining parking payment will require less maintenance, greater efficiency, and enable quick and accurate license plate recognition (LRP) enforcement to encourage access and turnover,” said Robert Ferrin, Assistant Director of Parking Services.

“Flowbird is proud to have been selected to launch our smart parking system in a city that truly embraces smart technology,” said Sean Renn, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Flowbird. “We look forward to a long partnership that benefits everyone who lives, works and visits the City of Columbus.”

For the 30-minute meters remaining in the city’s parking districts, the Short North rate will change to $1.50 per hour (75 cents for 30 minutes), to align with all other districts’ 30-minute rate. With the kiosks, no changes are occurring in parking rates, time limits or hours of enforcement.

To help transition to the new parking system, Parking Services will deploy street teams at events like the Pearl Market downtown, the Short North Gallery Hop and more to assist with parking and guiding customers through the new payment process. Residents are also encouraged to follow the Department of Public Service on social media for updates on what’s happening in their district and for relevant parking tips.

View a video here for a demonstration on how to use the new kiosks.

For those who have not yet downloaded the ParkColumbus app, there has never been a better time to go mobile. To learn how to use the app, click here.

Meeting the Needs of a Hybrid Work Schedule

Allpro Parking LLC announces availability of Flex Parking in Downtown Buffalo

 

 

Buffalo, NY —Today in Buffalo NY, Allpro Parking announced the immediate launch of Allpro Flex Parking, a program created to meet the needs of the modern, hybrid worker. “The Allpro Flex Parking program will serve the many employees that have worked remotely and will now return to their offices part-time. This is surely an economical parking option until staffers return to their downtown offices full-time.  We hope to launch this in the other markets we serve in 30 days.” said Richard A. Serra, President, Partner, and CEO, at Allpro Parking.

 

Positive Customer Impact

Many people are returning to the office in a post-COVID world as the workforce quickly adapts to a changed environment. Many companies are following the trend of a hybrid work schedule. With this new schedule, employees are only working in the office, on average, 2-3 days a week. This schedule change has in turn changed the needs of the downtown parker. It is because of this that Allpro Parking LLC has recently committed to deploying Flex Parking, in 13 downtown locations. Flex Parking will allow parkers to purchase packs of 12 “all day passes” to use within 60 days of purchase, instead of paying for parking by the month.

 

Flex Parking Availability

Flex Parking is an update driven by customer feedback and is part of Allpro Parking’s commitment to providing the best parking experience possible. Flex Parking is immediately available and simple to use. Visit honkmobile.com via desktop or mobile app, click find parking, enter in your office location, select one of the participating lots and “book now.” You will then select the long-term parking “multipacks.” Once you create your free account and complete your purchase, your 12 parking passes will be saved to your profile and are able to be used immediately. Flex Parking is the optimum blend of discounted rates with minimal commitment.
