Building the best tools for lot operators to get actionable intelligence is a top priority, and we will continue to expand and improve these systems with new features and easier to use components and interfaces.
  • Infrastructure – We’re completely cloud-based with systems for automatically deploying and provisioning new servers. Even though we’re small, we recognize that the rest of the engineering team are ultimately the customers of the individuals responsible for deployment and infrastructure. Therefore, the goal with our infrastructure is to maximize developer productivity and happiness.
  • Data Science – Data science at ParkMe satisfies the needs to several different customers. For the end user it allows us to guide them to the locations where they’re most likely to find parking. For lot operators, it allows us to provide actionable intelligence about the status of their business. Internally, it allows us to process large volumes of data semi-automatically and to win contracts by constantly having our thumb on the pulse of our data.
