SpotHero Partners with Software Provider Oobeo to Simplify Valet Parking Operations Nationwide

SpotHero Partners with Software Provider Oobeo to Simplify Valet Parking Operations Nationwide

SpotHero to expand network of parking facilities and improve user experience for drivers; Oobeo to acquire SpotHero’s ticketless valet clients to expand its client base


CHICAGO and SARASOTA, FL, February 21, 2019 — SpotHero, the leading parking mobility platform in North America, and Oobeo, a cloud-based valet parking software provider, have announced a partnership to improve valet parking for both companies’ customers nationwide. Under the partnership, Oobeo will assume and service SpotHero’s ticketless valet software clients, and SpotHero will gain access to hundreds of additional valet parking locations near restaurants, airports, and hotels currently using Oobeo’s solution.


Through the partnership, Oobeo will expand their cloud-based valet software to SpotHero’s ticketless valet clients. By operating entirely on iOS and Android devices, Oobeo provides valet operators with an integrated platform to receive cars, check the status of vehicles, take credit card payments, and review customer payment status. Eliminating paper tickets enables drivers to pay for valet parking, drop off the car, and request their vehicle all from a mobile device.


SpotHero valet passes will be validated by Oobeo as part of the partnership, opening up hundreds of new valet locations and reservations for SpotHero customers. By expanding its existing network of facilities, SpotHero reinforces its commitment to easing congestion in high traffic areas where valets add significant value to drivers–near restaurants, hotels and other popular destinations.


“As we look to solve for traffic and congestion, seamless valet parking offers an easy solution to our drivers,” said Mark Lawrence, co-founder and CEO of SpotHero. “Oobeo has developed a platform for making the experience more efficient for valet operators and customers alike. This partnership is a great opportunity for both companies, as we help grow Oobeo’s client base while bringing more valet locations to SpotHero drivers nationwide.”


“We are building a highly differentiated solution for valet companies,” said Philip Crutchfield, CEO of Oobeo. “We’re thrilled to partner with SpotHero to service their ticketless valet clients and give our existing clients the opportunity to grow their revenue by opening their valet locations to SpotHero’s network of drivers.”


SpotHero’s client relationships will be transferred to Oobeo’s platform beginning this month. Upon completion of the partnership integration, Oobeo’s valet operations at hundreds of airports, restaurants, hotels and other locations will be available on the SpotHero parking platform.  


This announcement is the latest in a series of deals for SpotHero that enable the company to expand its network of exclusive inventory while building integrations that enable a best-in-class user experience for drivers in need of parking. Last month, SpotHero announced a deal with ParkHub to add hundreds of new event venues and parking locations to its platform. In late 2018, SpotHero announced a partnership with FlashParking to enable one-tap redemption using Bluetooth technology at garages across Austin, Texas.
