With seamless integration and maximum compatibility with third party parking applications, TICKETECH's Ultra Suite will give operators who've implemented ParkWhiz an all-in-one flexible software program for rapid remote support making it effortless for management to track incoming online bookings, and drivers to redeem their pre-paid parking passes.
"The parking industry has changed significantly, especially in the past few years," said TICKETECH COO Mauricio Cotto. "Our focus on technology as a means to connect all pieces of the parking pie is the reason we have thrived for so long. Partnering with ParkWhiz, a company that is also heavily customer-centric, will ensure that we both continue to drive innovation and evolution of the industry for years to come."
