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. This collaboration aims to reshape electric vehicle charging and parking solutions, enhancing convenience and accessibility for EV drivers, whilst helping the local governments unlock the insights, they need to meet their net-zero targets.

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. This innovation addresses the “range anxiety” EV drivers find they experience when searching for charging facilities during their journey or at their destination.

For local governments, the solution empowers them with the tools they need to make, monitor and monitise EV charging bays, and provides them with the real-time insights and historical data needed to scale charging infrastructure rollout effectively and seamlessly.

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. The integrated solution is already being used by the likes of Coventry City Council and is set to roll out further, ushering in a new era of efficient, convenient, and eco-friendly electric vehicle charging and monitoring.

ABM Advances Simplified and Customized EV Charging Infrastructure Through Exclusive Charging Network



Leading EV charging solutions provider ABM has deployed a cloud-based network, enabling an optimized charging experience with real-time system monitoring



NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2023  — ABM (NYSE: ABM), a leading provider of facility services, infrastructure solutions, parking management and electric vehicle (“EV”) charging solutions, has completed the rollout of its proprietary ABM EV Charging Network, powered by its cloud-based ABM EV OS software in collaboration with Noodoe. Further elevating ABM’s comprehensive single-source EV infrastructure solutions, this network will unlock personalized customer experiences while improving EV charger uptime.

Amid a recent nationwide decline in driver satisfaction with public Level 2 charging, facility owners and operators across industries have been challenged to provide new solutions that recognize the importance of service, maintenance, and driver experience when installing and maintaining public EV chargers.

A recent report by J.D. Power indicated roughly one in five public charging attempts fail, leading to driver frustration and dissatisfaction.

To combat this trend, ABM is proud to announce the nationwide roll out of its EV Charging Network to pair with its other customized turnkey solutions for virtually every commercial application, allowing for the design and implementation of the right EV strategy. This comprehensive approach encompasses charger equipment, installation, maintenance, and upgrades, ensuring a seamless and reliable EV charging experience for both facility owners and drivers.

“As America continues its path toward an electric future, intelligently connected infrastructure will be a critical enabler to keep up with the demands of a rapidly growing user-base,” said Mark Hawkinson, President of Technical Solutions, ABM. “As one of the nation’s largest providers of custom EV solutions, including installation, management, and maintenance, we provide a unique perspective on how the EV ecosystem needs to function to better serve customers and enhance value to owners and operators.”

Facility owners and operators leveraging the ABM EV Charging Network will be able customize the features offered through their chargers with integrations such as customer loyalty programs, entry badges, and parking systems. This software enables clients such as hotels or retail stores to directly connect their parking lot chargers to rewards programs, and private operators to ensure that only authorized drivers are using their chargers. The software also supports various digital payment processing options, including card, QR code, or ABM app, optimizing revenue and customer experience.

To promote improved charger uptime, chargers on the network receive 24/7 charging service delivery, monitoring, diagnostics, and recovery. Combining the network services with ABM’s expert maintenance services provides owners and operators with real-time diagnosis and rapid repair for any issues that occur over a charger’s lifetime.

The ABM EV Charging Network allows for real-time updates and enhancements to its charging stations, granting them continuous access to the latest features.

With over 30,000 chargers installed to date, ABM is expanding its solutions through this network, which can be paired with its Level 2 and 3 charging stations and hardware to meet the needs of today’s drivers. ABM’s experts provide integrated turnkey solutions, including facility review, project mapping, financing, charging equipment, installation, ongoing support, and continuous guidance. Additionally, through ABM RavenVolt’s turnkey microgrid solutions, ABM can provide energy and power resiliency.

While the majority of ABM’s installations to date have been in private commercial settings, as ABM’s public EV charging network grows across the U.S., drivers will be able to find charger locations and seamlessly charge, pay, and monitor all through the ABM EV OS app, which is now available for download on iOS and Android devices. In addition to the app, all public ABM chargers offer the straightforward “Scan, Pay, and Charge” option for an effortless user experience.

Organisation of the Year – EasyPark wins top Australian Industry Parking Award

October 18, 2023





Organisation of the Year – EasyPark wins top Australian Industry Parking Award




EasyPark has been recognized by the Australian Parking Industry as the 2023 Organisation of the Year.

The Award is recognition for EasyPark’s rapid growth during an incredibly busy 18 months in which the Cities of Melbourne, Canberra and Perth andmany others, adopted the EasyPark Digital Parking Solutions including the award winning Pay via Phone for parking App as an alternative to parkingmeters and also the introduction of ticketless digital permits.

Over the last 8 years more than 70 Councils and Parking Operators across the country have introduced EasyPark Pay via Phone for parking and Digital Permit Solutions.

More than 3.1 Million Australians have downloaded the EasyPark App to dateand there are close to 100 000 new downloads each month. EasyPark was the38th* most downloaded app on the app store in September 2023!

EasyPark CEO Eli Grossinger Binshtok said receiving the industry’s top accolade at the prestigious Parking Industry Awards event, inSydney was reward for the team’s determination to make the parking experience easier for clients (councils and parking operators) and ourcustomers (end users).

“The best compliment that we get is that EasyPark is – Easy.

“People say it is easy to use and we are easy to do business with. But, as we all know, it’s not that easy to make it easy. We worked very hardbehind the scenes to achieve this outcome for our clients and customers and for this I thank our wonderful team who show great effort andcommitment every day to build this amazing organisation to make it easy for everyone else.

“We strive to go above and beyond and deliver WOW in everything we do, both internally and externally. Now for us this is a WOW moment in the history of our company.”

The EasyPark Pay via Phone App is the most used in Australia (in fact it is the most used service of its kind globally). EasyPark was established inAustralia in 2012 and has grown to become the leading Pay via Phone/App for parking service. Our 3.1 Million customers are able to use theEasyPark service in almost every State and Territory in Australia.

Beyond our shores the wider EasyPark Group has a similar growth trajectory with rapid expansion in Europe and the US. Collectively thereare now more than 80 million EasyPark App customers in over 25 countries and nearing 4,000 cities. And these numbers continue to grow rapidly asEasyPark expands.

The EasyPark App enables drivers to control their parking. Vehicle owners set their start and end time from their mobile device, and if their meeting,appointment or catch up finishes early or overruns, they simply change the timings from their phone, without having to return to the car. Unlikesome apps which are pre-loaded with money, EasyPark users only pay for the exact time they use and on the day that they use the service.

EasyPark General Manager Craig Logan said more and more Councils and Commercial Parking Operators are adopting the EasyPark digital parking services to reduce and replace physical parking meters and old outdated parking permit systems.

“Increasingly, digital options for parking are being adopted. Cloud based technology-led solutions are always the latest and most up to date, and are easily integrated with other cloud-based solutions.

“The 3G network, which many physical parking meters still utilise for communications and payment processing, will be cut off next year, and as a result, Councils and Parking Operators are considering additional digital payment options, including EasyPark as a viable alternative to upgrading their entire fleet of aging on-street parking meters.

“This Award not only reflects the amazing work from our team over the last 12 to 18 months, but it also reinforces our goal of growing the companyand consolidating our position as the market leader in digital parking solutions,” Mr Logan said.

EasyPark was also the Finalist for Outstanding Customer Service and Arjun Nambiar was named Finalist for the Young Achiever Award.

“The Australian Parking Industry is full of very dedicated hard working people and as a result is a very competitive but genial industry. This year’sAwards event was well attended and a great opportunity to come together, mix and discuss potential integrations, collaborations and partnerships allgeared toward providing great choice for clients.

“We would like to thank the CEO and the entire board of Parking Australia and all the sponsors for a well organised event and we also thank members of the Australia Parking Industry for voting EasyPark Organisation of the Year 2023,” Mr Grossinger Binshtok said.

EasyPark Group makes history with first parking apps in space

EasyPark Group makes history with first parking apps in space




STOCKHOLM, Oct. 11, 2023  — EasyPark Group, a pioneering global force in the parking technology sector, is embarking on a unique mission to welcome extraterrestrial visitors to Earth. With a history of more than 20 years of pushing innovation, EasyPark Group raises an intriguing thought: with all the UFO sightings, why haven’t we made contact yet? Could it be that aliens simply haven’t found a parking spot?

In a historic first-of-its-kind effort, EasyPark Group joins forces with the Grimeton Radio station World Heritage Site to search for extraterrestrial life. The company announces that the parking apps EasyPark, ParkMobile and RingGo have been sent to space. Marking a significant milestone in human technology. For more than two decades, EasyPark Group has led the transformation of traditional parking systems to modern and convenient solutions, consistently introducing innovations to make cities more livable. EasyPark Group has now broadened its scope, making not only cities, but Earth more livable.

“At EasyPark Group, we are driven by innovation and challenges, finding unique and practical solutions to make life easier for drivers, and cities more livable. We wanted to illustrate our innovative work of the past 20 years in a bold and attentive manner. What started as a fun thought ended up in two questions: can we send our apps into space? Could it help make our cities and Earth more livable? A challenge we wanted to explore”, says Cameron Clayton, CEO at EasyPark Group.

Topping off the ‘World Space Week’, EasyPark Group is paying tribute to its rich legacy for over two decades of innovation by becoming the first parking company in history to have launched its apps into space. This unalike initiative also seeks to unravel the mystery behind the more than 170,000 reported UFO sightings since 1905*, yet the absence of tangible contact with extraterrestrial beings.

In collaboration with Grimeton Radio station, an UNESCO World Heritage site located southwest in Sweden, EasyPark Group and Grimeton have transmitted the full code of EasyPark Group’s apps into space by transforming them into a broadcastable data signals. The apps have embarked on an interstellar journey, traveling at a speed of light.

“We are helping EasyPark Group enable its initiative through our facility and our years of experience in wireless communication. With radio technology, we have sent the apps into space. Radio is still mainstream and it’s exciting that radio continues to contribute to innovation in the field of technology and opens up for new possibilities”, says Camilla Lugnet, CEO at The World Heritage of Grimeton.
