Parkable's app takes the pain out of parking for Kiwi's who want to choose from thousands of Kiwi carparks not usually available and reserve a bay in seconds. Parkable software is used by building owners to lease out the carparks on a short or long term basis and by businesses who want to make carpark sharing simple amongst employees and managers.
Who uses Parkable?
Some big New Zealand companies have also joined up to better allocate carpark resources amongst their locations, cities and people.
Parkable chose to code their software in New Zealand because they wanted to access the deep level of skill that exist to create NZ Coded software. "From the start, all three Parkable founders had huge confidence in the talent and skill in New Zealand's tech industry. We believe that New Zealand is developing some of the best software anywhere and can successfully export it to the rest of the world, so we had no doubts about developing Parkable right here at home.'" Toby Litten - Founder Parkable.
Parking doesn't have to suck and thankfully with NZCoded Parkable software, the world is now better utilising the carparks we already have. That's technology solving environmental problems reducing our need to create more parks by better utilising the carparks we already have.
