Valtech Mobility and Parkopedia Team Up to Offer Comprehensive Parking, Charging, and In-Car Commerce Solutions

Last Updated on: 22nd November 2023, 02:15 am

Parkopedia and Valtech Mobility have announced their collaboration to enable automakers to support drivers with integrated parking and electric vehicle (EV) charging services within vehicle infotainment systems.

The partnership brings together Parkopedia’s data and payment processing platform with Valtech Mobility’s connected car software expertise to offer an end-to-end service for automakers that covers the complete in-car transaction process, from individual point of interest data, to user registration and payment processing.

Markus Dohl, Parkopedia’s VP of Sales & Business Development Europe, said: “Parkopedia prides itself on simplifying everyday vehicle-based tasks for both automakers and their drivers. This partnership with Valtech Mobility enables us to provide an integrated end-to-end parking, charging and payment solution to an even greater audience.”

Norman Palmhof, Business Director Valtech Mobility, added: “Already during the first workshop we could see that our teams and portfolios complement each other very well. We are very pleased to have found a partner in Parkopedia that has similar ambitions to ours and the ability to deliver consistently excellent data quality even at such scales.”

Thanks to this partnership, auto manufacturers can benefit from a quicker and easier process of supplying parking and charging data together with in-vehicle payments for services such as fuelling and road tolls. This will offer a deeper integration with in-vehicle systems and sensors superior to a detached white-label app-only offering, and enable automakers to tailor the user experience to suit their individual drivers.

The standard format enables the Parkopedia and Valtech services to be accessed within Google Automotive Services (GAS) – with other environments to be added in the near future – which can be accessed through voice commands to ensure the greatest ease of use for drivers. Parkopedia and Valtech Mobility both have global reach, operating across Europe, North America, China and Japan, among other markets.
