Nanoprecise, Amigo Labs, AiBorne and NRV DesignX were the other winners among the 8 startups that had been shortlisted for the final round of Cohort 5.

It validates our team’s vision and hard work, illustrating how great things can be achieved via co-creation partnerships between successful corporations and startups.”

 

The MAIL program was launched in January 2019 by Maruti Suzuki in collaboration with GHV Accelerator, an Indo-Japanese early stage seed fund. The program is designed to identify early stage startups who have come up with game changing solutions in the field of mobility and transport, so that the OEM can provide them with an opportunity to scale their PoCs. This program is aligned with the Government’s Startup India initiative. Any start up offering technological solutions and services in this field are eligible to apply for the program. MAIL has already enabled 19 PoCs and engaged with 33 startups of which 8 were on-boarded as Maruti Suzuki’s official business partners.

 

Get My Parking, as an award-winning provider of IoT-based smart parking solutions, has digitized access and payment in over 2700 parking lots across 20 countries with its interoperable parking management software. GMP’s IoT module upgrades existing barrier gates to have online access, integrating various multi-vendor equipment in the car park onto a single, easy-to-control platform. GMP’s retrofit technology allows operators to take their parking business online in a short period of time without having to purchase expensive new equipment.

 

Having facilitated over 60 million parking transactions, Get My Parking makes parking access and payment easier for both the operator and the parker, regardless of the location and condition of the parking lot. From QR-based payment solutions that require next to no installation time to lightning-fast LPR or RFID enabled access, GMP’s range of products can streamline parking operations for smart cities, governments, corporates and urban hubs. All the consumer data is safely encrypted in the cloud-based software, while supporting offline functionality to operators.

 

Get My Parking also offers a white-labeled consumer app so that traditional car parks can bring back customers who prefer touchless, cashless, pre-booked parking and Value Added Services. These apps allow parkers to keep track of their sessions, parking permits and extend their sessions without returning to the parking lot.

With each solution customized according to the customer’s business requirements, Get My Parking clearly fits the bill to be on Cohort 5’s list of innovative startups. The winners have been awarded paid PoCs by Maruti Suzuki. Team GMP is looking forward to breaking new ground with the new resources and connections acquired through the MAIL program.

With Jordan joining the team, Get My Parking has the backing of a seasoned sales professional who believes in its vision of making parking a better experience for people around the world.

Get My Parking Raises $6M Funding from IvyCap and IAN Fund to Digitize Parking Industry Globally

Get My Parking Raises $6M Funding from IvyCap and IAN Fund to Digitize Parking Industry Globally

 

 

 

Bangalore –  Mobility startup and smart parking pioneer ‘Get My Parking’ (GMP) announced a fundraise of INR 43 crores led by IvyCap Ventures. Existing investor IAN Fund also participated in the round. Masterkey Holdings served as the investment banker.

 

Founded in 2015 by Chirag Jain and Rasik Pansare, GMP has digitized over 3000 parking lots across Europe, the US, and India. It will use the new funds to scale its IoT platform and extend its footprint in the US, LATAM, and Australia markets. The startup also plans to use the capital for hiring and expanding its team, with a focus on engineering and product teams.

 

Chirag Jain, CEO, Get My Parking, commented on the fund raise, “We are very excited for what lies ahead of us. Parking is an under-utilized real estate that is uniquely positioned to serve the changing urban needs. Our technology enables a seamless use of parking for shared mobility, storage and deliveries for e-commerce, EV charging, and on-the-fly automotive services. With our modular, affordable yet cutting-edge technology, we are confident of transforming parking lots into mobility hubs worldwide.”

 

 

Get My Parking’s open IoT platform is an end-to-end digital enabler for parking operators and facility managers around the world. It empowers them to offer their end consumers online discovery and transaction capability. The company’s technology upgrades physical parking lots into digital mobility hubs with contactless access and cashless payments. Operators can also launch their consumer app and loyalty programs in just two weeks with customizations. Behind the scenes, its IoT gate kit GMP Access can integrate any legacy parking equipment with any app or cloud software. This allows a host of multi vendor sensors to work in tandem with plug-n-play API integrations. This makes it possible for connected cars and autonomous vehicles to conduct machine-to-machine interactions with parking gates for automated entry and payments. Get My Parking offers its tech as a white-label Software-as-a-Service model.

 

Rasik Pansare, Co-Founder, Get My Parking, commented, “Parking infrastructure needs dozens of equipment and tech vendors. Most of these offer discrete pieces of functionalities that work in silos, typically offline. We provide operators with the technology they need to launch innovative digital offerings relevant to modern consumers. We have drastically improved their time to market, user experience, loyalty, revenue, and business diversification.”

 

Parking equipment collects a tremendous amount of data which is rarely tapped properly. Get My Parking’s solutions such as ‘GMP IQ’ and ‘GMP AI’ help make sense of that data through a configurable admin dashboard and other creative applications like dynamic pricing, occupancy predictions, intelligent enforcement, and so on. The smart parking startup’s latest product, ‘GMP Permit’ enables operators to digitally manage long-term parking permits and issue them to contract parkers online.

 

Commenting on the funding, Vikram Gupta, Founder and Managing Partner, IvyCap Ventures Advisors Pvt Ltd, said, “We are impressed by the Get My Parking team and what it has achieved in an underserved sector. We believe in the combination of their talent, technology, and strategy to truly transform the parking and mobility industry globally. Our investment in the company is aimed at helping them in their expansion and growth.”

 

Get My Parking has started working closely with automotive and logistics companies to solve the parking piece of the mobility puzzle. Recently, it announced a collaboration with Mercedes-Benz to assist end-users in discovering and navigating to a relevant parking lot.

 

Commenting on the funding, Saurabh Srivastava, Co-Founder of IAN, Past Chairman NASSCOM, said, “We are proud to have been part of Get My Parking’s journey in the past and are excited for its future. With several customers onboard globally, Get My Parking is perfectly poised to leverage this untapped opportunity with its sharp focus on execution.”

 

Get My Parking has deployed its solution for some of the largest parking operators in the world such as APCOA Parking, which operates across 9000+ locations in 13 countries. GMP has also performed deployments for early customers in Brazil, UAE, Australia, and Taiwan. It began its foray in the USA market last year by establishing a sales partnership with industry veteran ParkTrans and signing up two large parking operators. It will further invest in building a US office and team. With the latest fund raise, Get My Parking is prepared to grow its global footprint with newer products and markets.

Get My Parking Announces Launch of the US Partnership

 

 

 

 

 

Philadelphia, PA – The leading smart parking startup, Get My Parking (GMP), has announced the launch of a partnership in the US as it continues to grow its global footprint aggressively. With their newly established representatives near Philadelphia, the India-based startup is positioned to serve even more parking operators in the North American market.

 

 

Get My Parking’s latest expansion move is supported by its partnership with ParkTrans, an American smart city solution provider that brings the latest technology to its American clients. As part of this partnership, Christopher Perry and Kevin Woznicki, the Principal Partners of ParkTrans, will be representing Get My Parking.

 

Traditional local-server-based parking hardware operates in silos and is not compatible with third party apps or software. In today’s new-age mobility landscape, parking operators need an ecosystem of integrated hardware and software, to deliver contactless, safe, digital consumer experience. Get My Parking provides all that with it’s white-label software-as-a-service to integrate operator’s existing hardware with any third-party mobile app. If the operator wants their own custom-branded app then the GMP platform can provide that in just 2 weeks.

 

The GMP platform upgrades physical parking lots into digital mobility hubs with contactless access and cashless payments for commuters and shared mobility fleets. The Cloud GateKit, a new IOT product by Get My Parking, retrofits and integrates all existing access control equipment. It thus enables any parking to go touchless without requiring operators to invest in new access gates.

 

Chirag Jain, CEO, Get My Parking, commented on the expansion, “We are very excited about this expansion in the US. We’d always received huge interest from American parking operators, and we will now be able to serve them more closely. To date, we have empowered more than 2000 parking lots around the world to go digital and contactless. With the support of Christopher and Kevin from ParkTrans, we are confident of making huge strides in the American parking market.”

 

Get My Parking has performed extensive deployments in Europe and Asia for some of the largest parking operators such as APCOA Parking, that operates across 9000+ locations in 13 countries. With this expansion, American operators can now transform their parking infrastructure into a coherent, interoperable ecosystem with Get My Parking’s plug-n-play and customizable suite of parking solutions.

Hugo Rohner, former Global CEO, SKIDATA, has joined the board of Get My Parking as an Advisor and Minority Investor. SKIDATA is the world’s largest provider of parking access control systems. With expertise in digitization and mobility, Hugo holds a strong track record of leading tech-enabled change at a global scale. During his 7 years as CEO, Hugo grew SKIDATA from a small, focused company to a global market leader in access and revenue management, with 10,000+ installations in over 100 countries.

About joining the Get My Parking team, Hugo Rohner commented, “Get My Parking has shaped the parking industry with its world class products and a continuous push towards a fully digital parking experience. I am excited to support its mission and future growth”.

 

Get My Parking works on connecting parking and mobility for parking operators and facility managers, with its proprietary open IOT platform. It upgrades physical parking lots into digital mobility hubs with contactless access and cashless payments. The smart parking startup also helps parking operators integrate their existing hardware with any third-party mobile app or cloud software.

APCOA PARKING Enters Strategic Partnership with Indian Startup GET MY PARKING to Enhance Smart Parking Portfolio

May 30, 2018

 

 

 

APCOA PARKING Enters Strategic Partnership with Indian Startup GET MY PARKING to Enhance Smart Parking Portfolio

 

 

  • Collaboration leads to digital customer solutions for connecting parking with consumer mobility
  • Technology to integrate parking equipment with cloud based IoT to bring all APCOA parking lots across 13 countries onto a standard, interoperable platform
  • Open platform will enable new partnerships and business models across smart city and connected mobility ecosystem
  • Recently launched APCOA FLOW app in Germany is the first of the many outputs to be powered by this platform

 

Stuttgart/Delhi, 30 May 2018 – APCOA PARKING, Europe’s leading parking operator, has entered into a strategic partnership with GET MY PARKING (GMP), India’s principal smart parking startup, to customize and deploy an open IoT platform that provides a seamless mobility experience across all parking touchpoints. This digital platform will be scaled to all 13 countries in which APCOA operates more than 1.4 million car spaces at over 9000 locations. It is an interoperable platform, integrating varied parking equipment and connecting parking spaces to cars to create an overall mobility experience. This enables APCOA to provide the latest consumer solutions such as their recently launched mobile app APCOA FLOW (www.apcoa.de/flow), which includes ticketless automated access and cashless exit and will soon be enhanced by pre-booking options and on-street parking payment functions.

 

“This strategic partnership enables us to develop our digital platform and new products very quickly and cost-effectively. We are therefore in a position to offer our customers additional value:The GMP technology works with existing barrier technologies in older car parks, eliminating the need to purchase a new parking system.And the digital platform’s enhanced compatibility means that we can launch many new services and partnerships in the near future,” said Philippe Op de Beeck, CEO of APCOA PARKING Group.

 

“We are very excited about this collaboration, as it gives us a huge start in growing our international footprint. APCOA is the undisputed European market leader and we could not have asked for a better partner to enter the western parking market,” said Chirag Jain, CEO GET MY PARKING. Co-founder CMO Rasik Pansare added, “APCOA’s scale and size is the dream opportunity for testing our technology expertise. It is an ambitious project and our team is ready for the responsibility to assist millions of European motorists.”

 

This partnership is a marriage of operations and technology expertise, with APCOA’s experience and scale complimenting GMP’s innovation and agility. With such synergies, both expect to grow markedly in their own domains. GMP envisages learning a great deal from the advanced parking market of Europe and implementing that in the early-stage parking industry of India, thereby accelerating the smart parking ecosystem of India.Based on the new technology, APCOA will offer more customer-focused services while at the same time contributing to the smart city ecosystem with innovative solutions to help meet the many challenges facing modern cities.

 

The proprietary open platform is modular and future-proof, meaning it can be used in various capacities as per requirements and new capabilities can be integrated without affecting existing services. Offers from providers of other services like car sharing services, car rental companies, e-charging stations or parcel delivery services can be easily integrated into the platform, making the parking experience even more convenient. The first platform driven cooperation was entered into with Sunhill Technologies GmbH, a subsidiary of Volkswagen Financial Services AG (VWFS): Together with APCOA, they now offer customers of all VW Group brands contactless entry and exit, as well as automated billing of parking processes in the background.
