CPA launches MyParking, a free app for the iPhone

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/19/12 -- The Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) is launching MyParking, a free iPhone app designed to make parking in downtown Calgary faster and easier. The app includes features for the ParkPlus system and many of CPA's other services. It can be downloaded for free by searching "MyParking" in the App store or on iTunes.

"The MyParking app provides our customers with key parking information right at their fingertips," said General Manager Troy McLeod. "We encourage Calgarians to download the app for free to make their parking trip more convenient."

Top features of the app include:

--  Start and Stop a Parking Session: ParkPlus cell phone account customers
    can start and stop a parking session with the touch of a button through
    the app. Don't have a ParkPlus account? Create one from within the app.
--  Parking Availability: help locate a parking spot in Calgary before you
    plan your trip downtown. 
    --  Access the number of parking stalls available in CPA parkades in
        real time and view which streets are typically the busiest. 
    --  The estimated on-street availability feature uses historical data
        from the ParkPlus system to provide a general guideline of on-street
        parking availability. This information is also available on the CPA
        website at
        http://www.calgaryparking.com/web/guest/onstreetoccupancy. 
--  Find My Vehicle: mark your vehicle on a map, take a photo or write a
    note to help you find your vehicle after you've parked.

The app also provides a direct link to CPA's ParkAid service, comprehensive contact information and access to the latest updates from CPA's Twitter account @CalgaryParking.

"The City of Calgary's Customer Service & Communications team was pleased to have the opportunity to work alongside our colleagues at the Calgary Parking Authority," said Jacob George, Acting Director of Customer Service & Communication. "We believe this product is an excellent example of our organizations' ongoing commitment to providing new, convenient and citizen-centric services to Calgarians in the channel of their choice."

The CPA will be releasing the MyParking app on other platforms such as Android in future.

This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.

A service mesh like Istio addr...
