People around the world are looking for ways to increase physical distance with each other and reduce contact with shared surfaces to slow and ultimately stop the spread of COVID-19. Businesses, cities, and households are making changes in this new world that we live in. 

With the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic around the world, people have become more and more aware of common surfaces they interact with on a day-to-day basis. With a heightened awareness of how diseases spread, society’s attitude towards shared or common surfaces is changing.

Already, over 75,000 people worldwide are using the Frogparking Mobile App to pay for parking at cities such as City of Laguna Beach and Palmerston North City Council, to name two. These cities have replaced fumbling with loose change and cash and replace it with a completely contactless experience, with Frogparking’s mobile app, meaning drivers never have to touch the meter again.

Here are three easy ways Frogparking’s technology can help with your post-COVID-19 strategy. Frogparking’s mobile app is a proven solution, with a number of cities, universities, medical facilities, and shopping centres making the app available to their customers to display parking availability, find my car functionality, and contactless parking payment.

Firstly, reduce unnecessary contact your visitors have with a shared surface such as a payment or ticket machine than with a piece of hardware the vast majority of people carry around in their pocket, their Apple or Android device. Both are more than capable of processing the same payment, eliminating this contact. Reduce your hardware costs, by simply using your visitor’s personal hardware.

A contactless experience for your users, while also reducing the time your employees spend sanitising or cleaning shared spaces.

Secondly, attract your customers back after lockdown by making them feel valued with a premium experience. Accurate parking guidance reduces time to park and increases the customer experience by getting your visitors parked faster and enjoying their day sooner.

The app can offer rewards and premium offers for regular visitors to your business. The App is white labelled, so our app team can put your branding on it and really make it your own. Create an alternative revenue stream, by selling advertising space on the App to retailers or other organisations.

Finally, Frogparking’s system is completely modular. While the budget may be tight and the full system out of your price range, get your foot in the door with the mobile app and add more as your budget allows. Sensors to add the benefits of space-by-space data and parking guidance, signage, contactless enforcement, cloud-based analytics, dynamic pricing and much more.

Is your city, airport, retail property, university, or health facility next? Can Frogparking be part of your response to COVID-19, with a contactless payment solution that also makes the parking experience a breeze? Let’s talk!
