Sustainable travel and carsharing marketplace, Liftshare, has formed new partnership with innovative smart parking and intelligent mobility pioneers AppyWay.
The pair 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 greater adoption of car-sharing by employees for their daily commute.
For companies struggling with managing the demand for car parking spaces, a car-sharing scheme for employees to share the journey to and from work can deliver significant results. According to the company, Liftshare saves it’s 700 clients over £20 million ($24.7 million) per year in parking costs, 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 supercharge adoption of car-sharing through greater visibility and real-time availability 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 in their award-winning AppyParking mobile app, helping employees save time and reduce the miles driven finding parking on site. Through its analytics tool, Insights, facilities teams are presented with the full demand lifecycle for parking, enabling 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 carsharing only spaces, with verified Liftshare users pairing with the sensors in each bay.
Liftshare for Work provides companies with a bespoke, branded carsharing platform for their staff to use to enable sharing. 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.
