QP QuickPay Parking Payment App Now Available at Parking Concepts Facilities in the Bay Area and Southern California

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Parking Concepts, Inc., has partnered with QuickPay Corp., a premier mobile payment platform provider, to bring new payment options and value-added services to its patrons in the Bay Area and in Southern California. With QuickPay, Parking Concepts customers can pay for parking with their mobile phones using the free QP QuickPay® smartphone app available for iPhone® and Android™, or by SMS text or voice.

Parking Concepts, a parking operator that leases, manages or operates nearly 200 facilities, was founded in 1974 and has since maintained the company's mission to provide high quality, progressive and innovative parking services to meet its clients' needs and financial goals. With QuickPay, Parking Concepts customers will gain the ability to pay for parking by mobile phone, bringing ease and convenience to the parking payment process. Furthermore, the QP QuickPay app allows Parking Concepts parkers to easily find parking facilities that are QP-compatible.

"We're all about providing the best service possible to our clients, and the QP QuickPay solution offers value to our customers through convenience and time-savings," said Jeff Spicker, manager of business development at Parking Concepts, Inc. "As a parking operator and manager, I value QuickPay's ability to deliver increased value and convenience to both Parking Concepts and the parking patron while delivering the "cool" factor to our industry. The QP QuickPay app allows patrons to enter our gated facilities via their own personal smartphone. No more pulling tickets or waiting in line to pay."

QP QuickPay uniquely offers a flexible solution that supports all of Parking Concepts' parking environments, which include advanced parking solutions for hospitals, stadiums, special events, offices and some of the busiest airports in the United States. Now, Parking Concepts has made the QP app available in both surface lots as well as gated garages. Six Parking Concepts locations in the Bay Area are now QP-compatible, including the busy Showplace Square garage in San Francisco's Design District. Parking Concepts now also offers the QP QuickPay service in Los Angeles at its downtown Park Fifth lot. Now available in 14 cities total across California, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado representing almost 15,000 spaces, QuickPay plans to continue its expansion and roll out more locations in both Northern and Southern California with Parking Concepts in the coming months.

"At QuickPay Corp., we identify with Parking Concepts' focus on service. Together, we look forward to not only offering consumers a streamlined system for finding and paying for parking, but a solution that also allows facilities to differentiate and attract customers through the app's discoverability feature," said Barney Pell, QuickPay Corp. chairman and CEO. "This partnership links us to a premier parking provider with a stellar reputation, and gives QuickPay the opportunity to bring our service to even more locations and geographies."

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
