Embed Real Time Parking Information to Any Website With the ParkerMap™

New web self service tool from Streetline allows restaurants, shops, universities and cities to add local parking information to their website via a free, embeddable map widget

FOSTER CITY, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Streetline, Inc., the leading provider of smart parking solutions and real time parking data, announced today the introduction of ParkerMap™, an embeddable widget that allows merchants, universities, cities, and parking providers to easily showcase nearby parking options via any website.

ParkerMap is available for free at www.theparkerapp.com/parkermap. To generate a custom ParkerMap, users simply enter an address and the ParkerMap wizard generates unique HTML code that can easily be dropped into any website. Among those already using ParkerMap are City of Fort Lauderdale, Oregon State University, San Mateo Downtown Association and Mandaloun Restaurant in Redwood City, Calif.

"Our goal is to provide parking data via as many channels as possible and the ParkerMap is yet another tool to make parking data broadly available to motorists," said Zia Yusuf, president and CEO of Streetline. "Whether you're a merchant trying to bring customers to your establishment, a university managing an influx of visitors for the big game, or a city looking to reduce congestion downtown, letting motorists know where they can park is key."

ParkerMap: What Customers Are Saying:

  • "The City of Fort Lauderdale is constantly striving to improve the services we provide to our residents, guests and businesses. The ParkerMap helps us leverage even more value from our smart parking deployment by allowing our merchants and restaurants to take advantage of this new source of information. The more ways we can convey parking information to consumers, the better! And, the ParkerMap is a means to do this that is simple to use and effective."
    - Brian McKelligett, Parking Services Manager, Department of Transportation and Mobility, City of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
    http://www.fortlauderdale.gov/parking/default.htm
  • "By introducing the ParkerMap to Oregon State University our students, faculty, staff, and visitors without smartphones can now access parking locations, policies, and check the real-time availability of disability parking in the core of campus. I was able to add ParkerMap to our website in less than two minutes. Streetline has created a very user-friendly interface to create and add a parking map any website. Streetline has welcomed us into the world of parking 2.0!"
    - Jennifer E. Gossett, Disability Access Services, Oregon State University
    http://oregonstate.edu/parking/
  • "As a restaurant owner, providing the highest quality service is always a top concern. Since finding parking can be a challenge in downtown Redwood City, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the area, any tips we can provide to customers is the type top-notch service we pride ourselves on. Adding the ParkerMap to our website allows us to inform guests of the parking options near our building and how much they cost. It is a clear way to show where parking is available in relation to our location and it was simple to add to our website."
    - Basim Nimri, owner, Mandaloun Restaurant (Redwood City, Calif.)
    http://www.mandaloun.biz/joomla/contact-us
  • "Parking is the first thing and the last thing a consumer experiences when visiting our downtown. Showing them where to find adequate parking is essential to a thriving downtown. The ParkerMap helps our businesses inform visitors where they can park, how much it costs, and the availability of on street parking in real time for key blocks in the heart of downtown."
    - Jessica Evans, Executive Director, Downtown San Mateo Association

Parking Reinvented

Streetline's patented smart parking platform detects the presence of a car through a network of ultra-low power wireless sensors located in individual parking spaces. Data from these sensors, or from counting equipment installed in parking garages and lots, is then made available in real time via ParkerMap, various cloud-based applications, such as Parker™, the leading consumer guidance app for smartphones, tablets, personal computers and – soon – in-car navigation systems, as well as other applications geared toward city planners and parking facility operators. In addition to real-time data, Streetline also integrates garage data for over 23,000 locations.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
