Fixing Parking By Putting The Customer At The Center Of The Parking Experience

Room 27B



Spot Angels takes you on a tour. Drivers got used to an incredible amount of information when using navigation apps like Google Maps or Waze to go from point A to point B. When it comes to navigation, routing or traffic information, they have it all. Not when it comes to parking, making it one of the most frustrating urban experiences. There is a need to put the customer at the center and offer a comprehensive and seamless parking experience that goes from search to payment.
