Parkopedia, the market leader in connected vehicle services, is now working with OPnGO, the digital subsidiary of INDIGO Group, one of Europe’s largest parking operators, and a world leader in parking and individual mobility services, to provide seamless in-car parking reservation and payment services across France, Spain and Belgium.
OPnGO is a universal digital parking service that aims to transform the driver experience in urban areas by aggregating a complete off-street parking offer. With a location-based service that automatically detects parking areas, OPnGO allows drivers to find parking spaces, compare prices, prepay and obtain unique discounts.
With number plate recognition technology, drivers will be able to seamlessly enter and exit car parks without requiring a ticket or needing to stop at a pay station. Drivers will also no longer need to worry about additional stay costs, as the solution allows digital payments for the total time of the stay, without requiring any further action from the driver.
Parkopedia has integrated OPnGO parking reservations in its consumer apps and in-car solutions for 220 car parks in France, Spain and Belgium, with services to be rolled out across the entire INDIGO portfolio shortly.
Pascale Bonnard, MD of OPnGO, said: “This partnership with Parkopedia will allow numerous drivers to benefit from our license plate recognition technology. They will have an easier and seamless parking experience while having access to all our parking services through in-car display, which guarantees a safer and easier experience.”
