ALD explores possibility of global digital parking app
ALD is piloting a new digital parking app that could become part of its ‘My ALD’ global fleet app if trials in Austria prove successful.
Developed in collaboration with Austrian startup Parkbob – which won ALD Automotive’s ALD Startup Challenge last June for its parking app solution proposal – the app finds available parking spaces in Vienna, Graz, Salzburg, Innsbruck and Linz and provides automatic alerts if drivers park in an invalid parking space to help avoid parking fines. ALD is also providing its customers with guidance on parking regulations in their cities to show where and for how long they are allowed to park and what the parking fees are if the parking space is not free.
The pilot is being run for three months and could see the solution integrated in the ‘My ALD’ global fleet app.
