The client is a Startup that building service that allows private homeowners share parking spaces like driveways or garages with car owners. The idea is to develop the Mobile application which significantly simplifies searching of available parking spaces on a specific area/district in a city and booking it in one click. Besides that, the application should create an optimal route to that place and provide the ability to pay by credit/debit cards.
There is a huge problem finding an available parking in metropolis. In areas with high business activity usually, state parking is occupied from the morning till midnight and car owner should spend at least 10-30 minutes for the searching of available place and quite often that place is far from required destination. At the same time, these searching activities increase the traffic in the area, where already overloaded streets. But many parking at private houses available during the day. In this case, we need a system which is able to connect car owners and house owners to rent the parking for a specific period of time.
Axon has developed solution which contains Backend and mobile application for iOS and Android that allow in real-time mode quickly and easily finding available parking anywhere in the city. The mobile app has built-in Google Maps which brings visualization of streets with available parking. As well as check their availability at a specific time, book it, and pay in one click.
