Start-up secures first client
Launchpad start-up FindParkPay, which is working to become the go-to parking payment solution in the county, has just seen its first partnership go live.
Founded by Tim Macknelly and Matthew Ratsey FindParkPay provides a simple no sign-up platform, making paying for parking quick, easy and efficient for both customers and car park operators.
Their solution has just been adopted by St Austell Town Council.
Tim explained: "St Austell Town Council has been having issues with people using the current app they have in place, including complaints about download and set up time. Our Pay2Park system is an online payment system with no app required. The user simply scans a QR code and is taken directly to the payment options for that car park. You can also go straight to the website and the carpark can be selected.
"It's a simple payment process which aims to give users a better parking experience."
The town council are undertaking a six-month trial with FindParkPay, which Tim is hoping will be extended.
David Pooley, Town Clerk at St Austell Town Council, said: "The uptake of people using Pay2Park has surpassed all expectations which is a clear indication of how easy it is to use."
Tim added: "This trial will give us some real feedback and data into how we can continue to improve the software. We're really pleased to be working with St Austell Town Council and looking to the future we'd like to make this the go to parking system for as many people as we can."
