Reading Time: 3 minutes

We are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Parking Concepts Inc. (PCI), an established name in the world of parking, with the launch of Breeze by PCI, a mobile platform that lets users find, use and pay for parking services. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in revolutionizing the parking experience for PCI’s customers by making digitized parking more accessible, cost-effective, and easy to set up.

The partnership brings together Get My Parking’s state-of-the-art white-labeled parking solutions and PCI’s innovative and high-quality services across an extensive portfolio of parking locations. The result is a tailor-made parking ecosystem called Breeze, seamlessly integrated with PCI’s brand. It provides a user-friendly platform for consumers to find and navigate to their locations within the network.

It’s an exciting time for parking operators looking to future-proof their traditional parking lots without spending excessive capital on new equipment. The Breeze ecosystem is perfect for asset owners looking for a quick, pocket-friendly upgrade as the platform retrofits seamlessly with existing hardware to create a lightning-fast parking experience enhanced with AI-powered license plate matching.

Breeze aims to provide a hands-on parking experience where parkers may drive in and out without pulling a ticket. Advanced LPR cameras read the license plates from afar, opening the gates instantly. With AI-assisted license plate matching, the session starts on its own upon entry and ends at departure. Breeze also has locations where you may tap a credit card at the entry to start a session and tap the card on the way out to pay instantly.

Walk-ins can scan a QR code inside the location to add a card to the session – registered users can skip this step altogether. The payment is deducted automatically from the card on file – ticketless, cashless, and simple.

In addition to parking services, the platform offers a suite of value-added features such as EV charging. You can also purchase flexible parking permits from the Breeze platform – these digital monthlies can be customized down to the minute, letting you park faster and flexibly across all of PCI’s Breeze-enabled locations.

Breeze also provides validations that are distributed at retail partner outlets around their locations. Parkers can scan a QR code at the retail branch to get an instant discount on their parking session.

In just 4 months of going live, online reservations for event parking increased exponentially by 600%. It also made things much more convenient for PCI parkers.

The partnership between PCI and Get My Parking accelerates and enhances the customer experience across a network of parking locations, making parking simpler, faster, and smarter. It’s a significant step towards making smart parking accessible and affordable for everyone in the country.
