FrenchWeb: What needs does your service meet?
During rush hour, one in four users looks for a space and will take an average of 30 minutes to park in saturated areas. At the same time, many private parking spaces are underused or never occupied. Faced with the problems encountered in parking a car and in the search for profitability, finding a place for some and optimizing its place for others, ParkMatch meets a dual need that reconciles supply and demand.
What is your value proposition?
ParkMatch offers a car park rental service between private individuals without handing over a beep and without installing or modifying the existing opening system.
Through a mobile application and a connected remote control, ParkMatch connects holders of private parking spaces with motorists looking for space in city centers.
ParkMatch therefore offers very short-term parking rentals (from one hour) and aims to relieve traffic congestion in city centers while optimizing underutilized private parking spaces.On the one hand, ParkMatch is aimed at holders of private parking spaces in the city center who may leave their space empty for part of the day, or even free 24 hours a day. ParkMatch offers them a solution that allows them to rent their space and make it profitable even for a few hours. For example, when you drive to work, your parking lot remains free all day and could be optimized.
