Car sharing platform Liftshare has announced a new partnership with smart parking and intelligent mobility pioneers AppyWay. The two businesses will develop new technology solutions that will enable large employers to both better manage their corporate car parking assets and deliver sustainable travel outcomes by driving the greater adoption of car-sharing by employees for their daily commute.
Liftshare says that it saves its 700 clients more than £20m per year in parking costs by reducing the amount of spaces and land required to be leased. Through a new integration with AppyWay’s smart car park solution, companies are now able to adopt car sharing through the greater visibility and real-time availability of parking bays and by allocating premium parking spaces, like those nearest to the office, exclusively for users of Liftshare.
Smart bay sensors, provided as part of AppyWay’s car park solutions suite, enable real-time availability of spaces to be visualised via the AppyParking mobile app, helping employees save time and reduce the miles driven finding parking on site.
Using AppyWay’s Insights analytics tool, facilities teams are presented with the full demand lifecycle for parking, which will enable data-driven decisions for how to optimise their assets. The integration between Liftshare and AppyWay provides full visibility of bay usage for companies and enables real-time management of car-sharing only spaces, with verified Liftshare users pairing with the sensors in each bay.
Liftshare for Work is designed to give firms with a bespoke, branded car sharing platform. The dashboard records all of the data, so reports can be generated on real-time figures for CO2 reduction, number of miles saved, and monetary savings by staff who cut their costs by 50%, by sharing with colleagues.
Liftshare chief executive Ali Clabburn said: “Innovation is in our DNA here at Liftshare and we’re constantly striving to offer our clients the best possible solution to encourage people to travel more sustainably. The opportunity to collaborate with companies like AppyWay means that clients get a well thought through, integrated solution that supports their goals and objectives when it comes to managing their car parks.”
Dan Hubert, founder and chief executive officer of AppyWay said: “As cities and towns look for the means to tackle congestion and lower emissions, it’s important not to forget large companies and their workforce contribute to the challenge. Through our collaboration with Liftshare, we can support companies with their sustainable transport goals and drive greater adoption of car sharing, in addition to helping them optimise their parking assets and offer better experiences for their employees.”
