Car sharing is the future. According to experts, in the near future we will no longer have our own car, and will choose a means of transport that suits the needs of the moment.
This not only contributes to a better environment, but it is also much cheaper than owning your own car.
This trend is also gaining ground among businesses. In the past, every employee had their own car, while now vehicles are increasingly shared within departments. Employees can use a booking system to get access to a vehicle when they need it for work.
Using intelligent software, the cars’ use can be optimised and companies benefit from major savings due to the reduction in the number of vehicles in their fleet.
By keeping good records, the driver of each vehicle can be tracked at any given time. As a result, traffic violations and damage can be recovered from the driver fairly easily. But how to deal with the other costs of a shared car?
Amsterdam-based Waternet is an example of an organisation where employees regularly use a pool car. This has some of the advantages mentioned above, but in practice also leads to parking headaches.
Employees had access to a parking app, but they had to change the number plate used in the app when switching to another vehicle.
This took time and there was a high risk of mistakes. Sometimes people entered the wrong number plate or even forgot to start a parking session. And who monitors the number plates added by staff and the associated costs?
Now Parkd provides a comprehensive parking solution for fleets with pool cars.
The Parkd app enables pool car users to select a number plate that is part of the fleet.
Drivers then select the vehicle they want to use without risking mistakes or typos.
As the innovative app can also terminate parking sessions automatically, pool car drivers will enjoy worry-free parking.
Thanks to Parkd’s automatic sign-out feature, pool cars users save time, costs and unnecessary administration.
