T2 MobilePay can be white labeled in the TEXT2PARK® transaction and digital receipt screens to promote individual locations, brands, and parking programs. The system can also be used to send real-time, geotargeted public messages and digital banner ads to end users, creating a brand-new monetization opportunity for operators and a more personalized guest experience for customers.
“The contactless revolution continues. Today’s dynamic business landscape demands flexibility, ease of use and multiple payment options. Imagine a pay station in your customer’s hand,” said Steve Resnick, Chief Revenue Officer at TEZ. “We did, and we believe we have created an unsurpassed data-driven value-proposition for operators, clients and customers alike.

TEXT2PARK reinvents parking in Mexico
With COVID-19 Concerns, Residents and Visitors Will Have the Option to Pay for Parking online—without downloading a parking app
Plano, TX — Software developer TEZ announced TEXT2PARK, the cloud-based, app-free platform used to manage garage and lot parking, is now available in Mexico. Designed to effortlessly manage parking operations, operators get unprecedented control of their data. End users have a contactless experience: they text a code from the posted sign and pay online using their smartphones. Credit card information is tokenized, so parkers enter a card number only once the first time they park in any lot using TEXT2PARK. Adding time can be done remotely, which speeds up parking. Best of all, parkers don’t have to download another battery-hogging app.
This breakthrough parking platform was designed to work independently or in combination with SMS Valet, the popular software platform used by valet operators across the US, Mexico and Australia. Managers and owners can easily manage multiple lots remotely from a single dashboard, and get actionable, real-time data to develop business strategies. TEXT2PARK includes embedded enforcement tools and audit trail to track revenue and streamline operations.
“TEZ transformed valet parking operations in 2011, and we’re now reinventing how parkers pay for daily or monthly parking,” said Lily Barron, International Director, Latin America. “TEXT2PARK packs powerful tools into an elegant, easy-to-use system that scales to meet the needs of any parking operation in Mexico, whether it’s a managed lot, garage or street parking.”
TEXT2PARK represents years of software innovation:
Faster, enhanced customer service
- Two-way texting for enhanced communications
- Car and payment info tokenized
- e-Validations and digital receipts
- Auto notification that parking is about to expire
Advertising and Enforcement Tools
- Lot Full Mapping & Wayfinding to only that operator’s locations
- Embedded enforcement solution
- Citation payments off the windshield (Bluetooth printers optional)
- Customer Survey Tool delivering surveys as parkers are using the service
Easy Reporting and Tracking
- Data-driven reports that can be exported or shared
- Customer data generated and tracked by TEXT2PARK is owned by client, not TEZ
TEXT2PARK is only one of several cloud-based platforms that efficiently manage operations in parking and hospitality industries. Follow TEZ Mexico on LinkedIn: https://lnkd.in/e2zP6wg
