ABM (NYSE:ABM) , a leading provider of facility solutions, today announced ABM Parking Services (formerly Ampco System Parking) is introducing several innovative parking solutions to enhance the ABM parking experience. The technological upgrades include a customized mobile app for smartphones and tablets, along with a new client website for ease of service across all 2,000 ABM-operated parking locations in the United States. ABM Customized Mobile Parking App ABM Parking Services has partnered with ParkMe to create a customized mobile application, which gives clients access to ABM’s comprehensive parking database, providing real-time parking availability based on location, price, vehicle type and garage occupancy. Available to download free on iTunes, the mobile app also estimates costs, gives door-to-door route guidance, recommends preferred parking spots based on venue and provides drivers with a photo of the building’s entrance so they have a visual to help get them to their parking destination. Additionally, ABM has designed a QR code way finding system that is being deployed throughout its portfolio. By scanning an on-site QR code with a mobile device, drivers are guided back to the building and floor where their vehicles are located. ABM, in partnership with QuickPay, has also introduced pay by phone capabilities to enable drivers to quickly, conveniently and securely use mobile phones to pay for parking at ABM-operated facilities. Drivers can receive text message alerts when their pre-paid time is running out, and they can also add time remotely, without having to return to their vehicle. Parking receipts and history are also available online. ABM Parking Consumer Website ABM’s new consumer website allows drivers to research ABM-operated parking locations and make reservations and transactions from their computers. The recently launched website, which can be found at abm.com/parkinglocator (select the ‘Parking Locator’ icon), includes every ABM-operated parking location in the country. Through the website, each ABM parking facility has its own page with location, photos, rates, operating hours, entrance points, payment types, coupons, special event rates and amenities. Drivers can easily find parking locations, make reservations, download coupons and sign up for monthly parking and e-invoicing.
“The mobile app and website provide solutions to fulfill virtually any ABM parking need for clients and drivers with just a few clicks on a computer or mobile device,” said ABM Parking Services President Mark Muglich. “ABM is committed to offering first-class service, and cutting edge technology is a key component of making sure we’re delivering on that goal.”ABOUT ABM ABM ( NYSE: ABM) is a leading provider of facility solutions with revenues exceeding $4 billion and 100,000 employees in over 350 offices deployed throughout the United States and various international locations.
