T-minus 6 hours until the strike commences for the London Underground! It is expected to start around 9.00pm tonight – you have been warned!

ParkJockey is now a member of the British Parking Association!

The time has finally arrived! After the initial launch of ParkJockey London where the team worked endless hours to get the show on the road, we proud to announce that we have now become an official member of the British Parking Association (BPA).

The 720 members of the BPA embrace manufacturers, car park operators, local authorities, health authorities, airports, railways, shopping centres, bailiffs and consultants – to that we can now add Mobile App Technology to the list – with ParkJockey becoming one of the first!

british-parking-parkjockeySo what does becoming a member of the BPA mean? It is denoted that the BPA are the largest professional association in Europe and the recognised authority on parking. Their main aim is to represent and promote the best interests of the parking profession, and also influence those who are involved within this growing industry. Therefore, it can only mean ParkJockey is soon to be the word on the lips of many drivers, especially as they tire endlessly searching for parking – ParkJockey is going to be their first option and revolutionise the way you park, complimenting our business innovation award.

Strive for greatness, this is only the beginning . . . Watch this space!

Mayor Boris Johnson Welcomes ParkJockey to London!

Boris Johnson ParkJockey

Today was an extremely exciting day! Not only was the sun out in London but at a high-profile event held in the heart of the London TechHub, Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled his until now secretly-kept plans for the first ever London Technology Week. The Mayor was optimistic and confident that it will contend on a similar global scale to London Fashion Week, which was, of course, “music to the ears” of the London’s Tech City.

Our London Heads of Operations, Kamal Rajput and Stefan Friederichs, along with our Managing Partner attended the event. A host of leading figures in tech, such as Michael Acton Smith of MindCandy, Facebook VP-EMEA Nicola Mendelsohn and Oscar-winning CEO of Framestore, Sir William Sargent, were present.

The announcement has already stirred up interest in the press and reflects the Mayor’s ambition to make London the “tech capital of the world.”

As importantly, Mr. Johnson welcomed three new firms to the capital, one of which is (drumroll)  –  PARKJOCKEY !!!

In an instant, we were tweeted about and also made it into the London Evening Standard, along with several blogs and London24. Channel 9 of Australia also interviewed our Heads of Operations for a quick ParkJockey demo. They seemed pretty impressed!
