Solution

Proposed Solution to fix operational process

The client wanted an all-inclusive solution for a parking map platform to offer real-time information to the user. We developed mobile applications for both Android and iOS for a wider reach in the UK. For marketing and information, we developed a website to educate users about the features and functionalities of the app.

Why we chose this solution: Our developers consult with the clients and assess their requirements for parking space platforms. Based on this assessment, they came up with a solution that helps users with maximum features and ease.

1

We chose Koltin to develop both Android and iOS apps as it offers cross-platform development and integrates maps and navigation.

2

For website development, we utilize ASP.NET as it has a robust framework, cross-platform capabilities, and offers scalability.

3

We integrated various payment gateways so that users can easily pay for parking spaces.

4

We implemented sensor detections and notification features in the app to provide real-time data on parking space availability.
