LocoMobi Announces Rollout of New Innovative Apps for Users and Merchants ParkingPaid and RideRefund

March 14, 2017 – Toronto, Ontario

LocoMobi, Inc., the leading technology company specializing in cloud-based parking, transit and tolling solutions, is pleased to announce the introduction  of ParkingPaid and RideRefund mobile Apps that connect customers “ready to buy” with local merchants.

Using these new apps, merchants can offer new or prospective customers that are not within walking distance, to travel to their business by mass transit, shared ride or private car and the merchant will pay for all or a portion of the cost of travel.  The merchant specifies the minimum purchase requirement, product or service special or the hours when the ParkingPaid or RideRefund is applied.

To the user, it’s as easy as visiting the merchant, buying the product or service, opening the app and the merchant, through the app, will refund the promised portion of their cost of transit or parking which will be added to the user’s account or directly to their transit card.  

“It is estimated that there are over 50 billion annual trips on mass transit, shared ride or private vehicles today in North America” said President and CEO Grant Furlane, who added, “because ParkingPaid and RideRefund is a real-time connection between people who are ready to purchase now and merchants immediate value will be created for participating merchants”.

The application’s “merchant interface” allows businesses to easily and continually design and change their offerings based on supply and demand. Because the interaction is through the app there is no need for coupons.

“The growth in online commerce and city populations and the use of all forms of transportation to move about a city will continue to accelerate” adds Grant.  “Additionally, business travelers and tourists are visiting cities in increasing numbers so the opportunity for a local merchant to extend their reach by connecting directly to tourists such as the over 50 million visitors to Chicago each year is immense.”

These applications further LocoMobi Smart City offering to manage all facets of urban mobility and transportation. Please take a moment to view our demo videos below or download them from your preferred app store.

LocoMobi Announces “Game Changing” Cloud-Based Access Control Reader for Permit and Mobile Systems – RFID, Bluetooth, GPRS and WiFi, all in one.

April 21, 2015 – Toronto, Canada

LocoMobi is pleased to announce the most advanced innovation in reader technology to date. The innovation is an extension of our proven patent pending technology, Bluetooth Gate Kit, whereby the Bluetooth device capabilities have been expanded to work with multiple technologies. This means the Gate Kit controller will have “onboard” processing and functional capabilities to read; RFID , Bluetooth devices and GPRS. This will allow users to utilize the LocoMobi Cloud Portal to manage permit and transient users.

Wireless means no expensive wiring…

Each lane is powered by a LocoMobi Gate Kit unit at the lot entry point. The system is entirely wireless, enabling account management of all linked lanes through a cloud admin portal, providing users ease of accessibility to real-time data and true mobility.

Lost link to Internet … No PROBLEM

The Gate Kit controller stores all the card databases at the lane so the system can operate in offline mode.

“What we did is take the complication of entry and exit permit management systems and simplified it”, says Grant Furlane, CEO and Co-Founder of LocoMobi. He further adds: “Utilizing a Cloud based system as a global gate controller allows all different technologies to coexist in unison. They can operate as one or as a group as needed. This management approach provides an efficient accessibility point for managing not one, but hundreds of facilities at a time. Using a simple lane controller at the foundation of the infrastructure will effectively maintain a quick and seamless flow of movement in the lot.”

The newest version of Gate Kit is in transit and is ready for implementation. The second version to be released in 90 days will have Licence Plate Storage included.

About LocoMobi, Inc.

LocoMobi, Inc. is reinventing parking and transportation technology in the era of cloud, mobile, low-cost hardware and Internet of Things. LocoMobi was the very first to offer a cloud-based license plate recognition (LPR) system with a complete revenue engine that also provided a management system for virtual permitting systems, violation and citation management. The company also designed and implemented the first LPR-based system incorporating payment stations and barrier gates, which was integrated into a single cloud-based system.  A garage using a LocoMobi LPR system knows every vehicle that enters and exits and links all payments to the vehicle’s license plate.  For parking owners and operators, this is of immense value as they have full knowledge of and receive payment from every single parker. The revenue gains after deploying a LocoMobi system can significantly increase the value of the parking asset.  The company also designs and implements a complete suite of traditional parking systems including the conventional machine readable ticket systems and can combine them with license plate recognition as one single solution for places like airports.

LocoMobi’s Mobile payment application, LocoMobi Quickpay™, also complements any parking facility as an alternative to the payment station utilizing the same rate engine and cloud portal.

QuickPay can be used standalone, integrated with legacy hardware at low cost, or as part of a fully integrated LocoMobi system to deliver new value for drivers as well as parking owners and operators.

For drivers, the combination of LocoMobi’s QuickPay mobile technology and gate kit with LPR and product set leads to an ideal parking experience: a driver registers one time with the QuickPay app and enters his or her license plate and credit card. The driver then drives into a garage, LPR cameras recognize the vehicle and the gate opens automatically.  When the driver is ready to leave, he or she drives to the exit gate, the LPR cameras recognize the car again, bill the credit card saved to the QuickPay account, the gates open and the driver exits–all in a matter of seconds.  A similar system works in non-gated scenarios as well. For owners and operators, LPR transactions can now be linked to registered drivers, enabling customer knowledge and communications.

LocoMobi has also recently introduced a full system for in-garage guidance, significantly helping drivers find open spaces and minimizing time spent driving around looking for spaces. The system even helps users locate their car upon return to the facility.

LocoMobi’s product offerings are unique in their level of comprehensiveness, innovation, and price: installations typically have twice the functionality at approximately half the price of competitive systems. LocoMobi’s innovations have recently garnered worldwide attention when the Company was a winner of the award for 2014 TiE50 best new technology in the world, where over 2800 companies from 27 countries were considered. The awards were presented at the Annual TiE50 conference held in the Silicon Valley.

LocoMobi has partnerships with most of the major parking operators in the U.S. and Canada, and is deployed in parking garages and lots, hotels, malls and theme parks and on-street in major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

A Week In Rewind: LocoMobi Goes Green For St. Patrick’s Day

locomobi-st-patricks-day-550px
March 20, 2015 – Toronto, Canada

This week at LocoMobi we celebrated a day of green! St. Patrick’s Day was this past Tuesday and many members of the LocoMobi team came out in their shamrock best to partake in the Irish festivities. This included some of the newest team members, Avijit Bandyopadhyay, Jefferson To and Cathy-Ann Shim, our new Senior Programmer, Junior Drupal/ Website Developer, and Senior Accountant, respectively.

The team may have dressed in green to celebrate St. Patty’s Day but at LocoMobi we are proud to say we are green everyday! All of our products and processes are about being sustainable any way we can.

Our QP QuickPay app allows users paperless parking by making payments directly from their phones. By paying through the app their parking can be confirmed by parking enforcement through their license plate. LocoMobi’s License Plate Recognition (LPR) software also ensures a hassle-free, paperless option to gated lots! Again, by simply entering their license plate number into the pay station the smart system will provide an accurate length of stay. The cameras capture the plate upon entry so that when the parker leaves the lot there are no discrepancies over the amount owing! The system then processes the payment of the plate number in question so that when the car leaves the lot the cameras capture it again and understand that the plate has no remaining balance. The gate then instantly lifts allowing the parker to leave without ever having to worry about losing a ticket. LocoMobi also offers all of their payment machines with a solar power option!

We hope you all enjoyed being Irish for a day, and challenge you to stay green the rest of the year too!

Until next time, this is the Conversation signing out!

Boston Mayor Says No to Space Savers!

locomobi-bear-630px
March 13, 2015 – Toronto, Canada

In case you didn’t know, there is a bit of an unofficial tradition that happens in Boston (and many other American cities) every winter. With each heavy snow fall residents shovel parking spots outside their homes in order to keep a spot clear for themselves.

Well, this year, Mayor Marty Walsh of Boston says no to space savers. He has implemented a ban on placing items on cleared spots preventing the shovellers from saving them. Bostonians have come up with some pretty interesting revenge tactics for people who take spots that aren’t theirs!

The Mayor asks that instead, residents respect each other’s spots and to be patient while the city works to get the snow cleared as quickly as possible.

Here at LocoMobi, we know that parking can cause a lot of stress no matter what time of year; whether it’s finding a space or finding enough change to pay at the meter.

QuickPay is LocoMobi’s mobile parking payment app! By using the app parkers can pay by for parking straight from their mobile device. Payment can be made at the parkers’ convenience, from their office or the warmth of the car.  Even extend parking time straight from your phone so no more having to run back to feed the meter!

We know there are lots of stresses involved in parking- especially space saving, QuickPay is a start to helping make the parking a hassle free experience.

LocoMobi At Springdale Medical Centre

locomobi-default-new-image-600px

February 13, 2015 – Toronto, Canada

Obtaining LocoMobi’s first management location was an exciting addition to our system, and an attest to what LocoMobi parking solutions could really offer. Springdale Medical Centre was having a problem keeping their parking lot available for staff and clients due to the fact that it is directly across from the Brampton Civic Hospital. Hospital visitors were taking advantage of the nearby free parking, and filling it to the point that there was no room left for the business that owned it!

The solution seemed simple: enforce paid parking and provide the Springdale tenants with a validation system for their patients or clients. But changing a free parking lot to enforced paid parking was never going to be an easy task.

Initially LocoMobi installed LPR cameras and gated entries with a free entrance and a paid exit. The LPR cameras ensured that the logged duration spent in the parking lot was extremely accurate, so no one overpaid for parking. After seeing this system in action LocoMobi decided Springdale required a more streamlined solution. Now clients will be able to choose their duration time and pay upfront before exiting the lot, effectively removing any congestion and preventing line ups from occurring upon leaving the lot!

Springdale Medical Building has taken a little more time and planning than initially anticipated, but it has done nothing but demonstrate the true flexibility of LocoMobi’s solution and the way it can be easily implemented into any situation.

We spoke with Kristen Furlane, Operations Manager for LocoMobi and one of the team members who are overseeing the transition of the system at Springdale, to see what she had to say about the new changes.

So Kristen, LocoMobi has made a few changes at Springdale, what were the common issues you saw with the initial system integration?

I’d say the biggest hurdle we faced was explaining that the system did not require the use of tickets and that payment was calculated from a photo taken of your license plate or entering the digits of your license plate into one of the payment meters. This is still a very new concept that people are adapting to so we were on site every week helping tenants of the building with any questions or concerns they had for us. Having to deal face to face with customers allowed us to enhance our system because we saw the daily operations of the lot. This helped us better understand the customers of the lot, which helped us give them a fully customized system that fit their needs.

How will the new changes make parking even easier for the clients of Springdale?

The new system is very simple, now being switched to a Prepaid Parking solution. Parkers will drive into the lot, similar to our parking system at Cinema Towers in Toronto, and will pay on foot before going into the building. Also, by changing the system over to prepaid parking will be a great opportunity to offer our QuickPay app on another lot. This will give parkers an extra payment option creating an even more streamlined experience. For example, if a parker is stuck in an appointment longer than they anticipated they will now have the option to add time to their parking from the convenience of their cell phone, not having to go find a machine to pay at before their time expires.

Why do you think LocoMobi is still the best solution for this location?

Unlike other companies LocoMobi is able to provide a full streamlined solution. No one else has a system like ours; we are not only the parking equipment manufacturer, but also the parking management company. We are pioneers in our industry and always striving to provide the best parking experience for our clients and customers. Readapting our system is a much easier task than that of a company who offers a conventional parking system because our whole system is cloud based. This allows us to continuously add and change features to the system to fit each of our clients.

So there you have it! With the help of LocoMobi, Springdale Medical Centre will be able to ensure their clients have parking whenever they need to visit.

Hall of Famer Darryl Sittler Joins LocoMobi Advisory Board

locomobi-darryl-sittler-walk-of-fame
December 22, 2014 – Toronto, Canada

LocoMobi Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Darryl Sittler, a Canadian hockey icon and successful businessman, to LocoMobi’s advisory board.

Born in Kitchener, Ontario on September 18, 1950, one of eight children in the Sittler family, Darryl became a star player of the Ontario Hockey Association’s London Knights.

There are very few players in Toronto Maple Leaf history, that captured both the imagination of hockey fans and a place in their hearts, like number 27, Darryl Sittler. He was selected as the Leafs’ first pick and eighth overall in the 1970 Entry Draft. Sittler’s continuous offensive exploits began to shine during his third-season in the league when he scored 77 points. At the age of 24, he became the second youngest captain in team history.

In 1976, Sittler would achieve legendary status, both in Toronto, and across the Canadian  hockey world. It began at Maple Leaf Gardens on February 7, 1976, in a game against the Boston Bruins. While centering a line with Lanny McDonald and Errol Thompson, Sittler scored six goals and added four assists to set an NHL record – one that still stands today – for most points in a game with 10. That record-breaking moment helped Sittler become the first ever Maple Leaf to reach 100 points in a single season.

Two months later in April, Sittler’s sensational scoring streak would continue in the Stanley Cup playoffs, when he scored five goals in one game against the Philadelphia Flyers, tying a playoff record.

Nearly five months later at the Montreal Forum, on September 15, 1976 during the Canada Cup, Sittler cemented his standing in Canadian hockey lore. Taking a pass from teammate Marcel Dionne in overtime, he beat Czech goalie Vladimir Dzurilla on a partial breakaway, scoring the tournament winning goal for Canada and securing his place as a national hockey hero.

In 1989, Sittler was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.  He was honoured prior to a home game against the Montreal Canadiens on February 8th, 2003, at the Air Canada Centre.  It was an unforgettable, touching tribute to an illustrious Maple Leaf career.  The entire organization proudly raised a banner to the rafters with his number 27 and his name!

On September 6, 2014 the Toronto Maple Leafs honoured Darryl again, with the unveiling of his bronze statue outside the Air Canada Centre. He is one of the first three Leaf players to become a member of “Legends Row”.

Today, Darryl spends time working with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Inc in areas of Corporate Partners and in community relations. He is an active Member of the Board of Directors of several publicly listed mining companies and is also very supportive of a number of charities. These charities include the Special Olympics Canada, Screen Colons Canada and Colon Cancer Canada in honor of his late wife Wendy who died from colon cancer in 2001.

“LocoMobi is honored to have such a successful individual both on and off the ice,” says LocoMobi President and Co-Founder Grant Furlane. “Darryl will be instrumental in assisting LocoMobi connecting with sports industry, where parking and transportation are key challenges and opportunities and generating awareness of our brand, and giving back to the community.”

“I believe in the company’s vision and technology to transform parking and transportation and I am delighted to join LocoMobi as an advisor,” says Darryl Sittler. “I am excited to help this promising Toronto-based start-up gain visibility in the sports and business communities that I support.”

LocoMobi Once Again Brings Home The Win From Self-Storage Show

locomobi-default-new-image-600px

November 21, 2014 – Toronto, Canada

Locomobi Inc. is pleased to announce their latest victory this week while attending the Canadian Self Storage Association Conference! LocoMobi won best booth at the show in their newest venture into The Self Storage business!

LocoMobi, the top new technology company in the world kicked off their commitment in Ontario, Canada yesterday while attending and captivating the attendees of The Canadian Self Storage Association Show which is currently the largest self storage show in Canada, with record attendance this year.  LocoMobi’s latest addition to global markets continues to grow, just as the Company’s award winning cloud-based technology solutions.  “Each new additional market that we emerge into is a strategic, long term decision for the company and its shareholders.”  said Grant Furlane, Co-Founder and CEO of LocoMobi.  “We are aligning our technology amongst the most influential business industries.”

The company will continue to expand into many new diverse enterprises.  LocoMobi Inc has patented a gate-kit application which is perfectly suited for many different gated business solutions, not just parking.  The license plate recognition system was developed for several business models, including self storage.

“We are thrilled to have LocoMobi involved in our organization and excited to see how the LocoMobi products can compliment our industry” says Sue Margeson, Director of The CSSA.

This user friendly technology and software will change the game for self storage.  It can be quickly integrated with existing gates, keeping it affordable. Applications with no gates already exist!   Now, at the touch of a button and LocoMobi’s Quick Pay mobile app and portable kiosk, the customer experience will be seamless.  When the self storage unit is reserved, the license plate will be stored for a more efficient and secure way to enter the facility.  This is beneficial for facility owners, property managers, customers, and the ecosystem.  The solutions and applications are tailored to each specific need.

The cloud-portal reporting system, also ties to the license plate and benefits the owners and operators to manage revenues more effectively, while increasing security.

LocoMobi, Inc. is reinventing parking and transportation technology in the era of cloud, mobile, low-cost hardware and internet of things. LocoMobi was the very first to offer a cloud-based license plate recognition (LPR) system with a complete revenue engine that also provided a management system for virtual permitting systems, violation and citation management. The company also designed and implemented the first LPR-based system incorporating payment stations and barrier gates, which was integrated into a single cloud-based system.  A garage using a LocoMobi LPR system knows every vehicle that enters and exits and links all payments to the vehicle’s license plate.  For parking owners and operators, this is of immense value as they have full knowledge of and receive payment from every single parker. The revenue gains after deploying a LocoMobi system can significantly increase the value of the parking asset.  The company also designs and implements a complete suite of traditional parking systems including the conventional machine readable ticket systems and can combine them with license plate recognition as one single solution for places like airports.

LocoMobi’s Mobile payment application, QP Quickpay™, also complements any parking facility as an alternative to the payment station utilizing the same rate engine and cloud portal. QP QuickPay can be used standalone, integrated with legacy hardware at low cost, or as part of a fully integrated LocoMobi system to deliver new value for drivers as well as parking owners and operators.

For drivers, the combination of LocoMobi’s QuickPay mobile technology and gate kit with LPR and product set leads to an ideal parking experience: a driver registers one time with the QP QuickPay app and enters his or her license plate and credit card. The driver then drives into a garage, LPR cameras recognize the vehicle and the gate opens automatically.  When the driver is ready to leave, he or she drives to the exit gate, the LPR cameras recognize the car again, bill the credit card saved to the QP QuickPay account, the gates open and the driver exits–all in a matter of seconds.  A similar system works in non-gated scenarios as well. For owners and operators, LPR transactions can now be linked to registered drivers, enabling customer knowledge and communications.

LocoMobi’s product offerings are unique in their level of comprehensiveness, innovation, and price: installations typically have twice the functionality at approximately half the price of competitive systems. LocoMobi’s innovations have recently garnered worldwide attention when the Company was a winner of the award for 2014 TiE50 best new technology in the world, where over 2800 companies from 27 countries were considered. The awards were presented at the Annual TiE50 conference held in the Silicon Valley.

LocoMobi has partnerships with most of the major parking operators in the U.S. and Canada, and is deployed in parking garages and lots, hotels, malls and theme parks and on-street in major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
