Smart Parking has created a new technology hub in the South Auckland district of Penrose, New Zealand to provide the company’s fourteen-strong research and development team with dedicated facilities. The move will facilitate the evolution of the company’s next generation of parking solutions, and will also help Smart Parking to ensure that its technology is future-ready.
The team will focus on developing innovations in the speed, efficiency and functionality of Smart Parking’s applications. It will also ensure that the way in which the hardware that is deployed within a Smart Parking contract is fully integrated into the software to provide a seamless service.
Roly Rogers, Smart Parking’s Chief Technology Officer, says that the new Penrose facility will ensure that the team is able to continue to achieve innovations efficiently and effectively.
“There’s no doubt that our clients – and their customers – want our industry to deliver new services that enhance the parking experience, are intuitive to use and offer step changes in value for money. That’s a level of challenge that we’re hugely enthusiastic to meet, which is why Penrose is an important part of our story. By bringing Smart Parking’s R&D experts together in a single place, we can network, share ideas, and drive innovation forward at an accelerated rate. Our current and future clients, and their customers, will benefit from the developments that the team is able to create in the months and years ahead.”
