Pimlico Plumbers is a London-based plumbing firm established in 1979. It is London’s largest independent plumbing company.
Pimlico Plumbers were wasting between 20-30 minutes looking for a parking space. They would receive 4-5 parking tickets a day due to lack of availability and would guess the length of time required for a job, sometimes paying for 4-5 hours when the job only took 1. This unnecessary time and cost put stress on the drivers and the company finances.
In July 2015 AppyWay teamed up with Vodafone drivexone to create the world’s first “One Click Parking” solution. Using a combination of M2M dongles and our mobile app we enabled drivers to find available spaces quickly and easily, start a parking session with one click and only pay for the minutes parked.
One-Click parking from AppyParking app
We installed dongles into the diagnostics ports across the fleet, enabling the vehicles to become connected to the internet. The drivers use our app to start the session with one click. Once the drivers have completed their jobs, they simply hop in the car and drive away. The vehicles detect a key in the ignition and a certain distance travelled and the session ends automatically. Drivers then receive a notification with the details of their stay.
