Frogparking

Sound parking management plays a key role in the economic health of any city. Well thought out parking strategies improve access to shops and businesses, and crowded areas of the city. As a city grows, parking operations become increasingly complex. For city managers to make sound decisions about parking, they need reliable information.

Currently parking information is obtained from analyzing parking revenues, and manually counting cars.

The use of technology can greatly enhance city manager’s ability to make well-informed decisions on policy, capacity and operations with confidence.

Frogparking lets you know the true status of every parking space in real time.

Frogparking sensors deliver the quality information that parking managers require for planning and decision-making. The use of the Frogparking solution also changes parking behavior by encouraging more people to comply with parking regulations, thereby providing a fairer system for all users – honest people are less likely to be subsidizing those that don’t pay for parking.
