Raising any question when it comes to parking always seems to hit a nerve. Well, in this case, Inugo aims to bridge the gap between carpark operators and daily commuters.

It seems like a simple question: Why retailers never paid enough attention to customers’ parking experience?

Cities have been trying to solve the problems of car parking for many years. The amount of time shoppers spend looking for empty spots is one of the main reasons why people hate holiday shopping. Not only will you find yourself stuck at a messy intersection in an already crowded parking lot but you’re already thinking of queuing up for that double shot espresso before you begin your shopping journey.

Shopping malls and local event organizers may have overlooked customers’ parking concerns for a while now, focusing instead on the in-store experience, but a shopper who is able to quickly find a spot in a crowded basement and not have to worry about losing a paper ticket will probably be a happier, less-stressed customer walking into the store. Wouldn’t that be ideal for both parties? Especially with the increase in your holiday spending this time of the year, parking tickets are certainly not something you’d want to blow extra cash on.

Inugo is ONE universal parking solution for drivers – a single app that allows users to find, park and pay anywhere that Inugo, is accepted.
