Parkable Founders' Story

A 41 points to 13 drubbing in this case at Eden Park, Auckland, in the second of the annual Bledisloe Cup clashes between the two nations on a clear cool night in August, 2015.

This month the Software-as-a-service industry (SAAS) met for it’s annual get-together in San Francisco at the Saastr conference and Parkable was in attendance in the form of two of the Founders and a shareholder.  The three-day event bills itself as “the largest collection of people who like enterprise software — on the planet”.  We were taken there courtesy of Callaghan Innovation (‘thanks’ guys) who sponsored the attendance of some of New Zealand’s best SaaS start-ups and we learned a lot and were inspired by so much of what we saw.

Parkable for Business—How does it work?

Parkable for Business—How does it work?

Parkable has been solving problems for businesses in Auckland for two years. Parkable is an app that dynamically matches your parking real estate and public parking near you with the real-time needs of your employees and customers. Parks that are assigned to senior staff can be made available to others when they're away from the office; staff know in advance whether there is an office park available for them, making it easy to organise alternative transport if need be; and soon, car pooling between staff will be facilitated as well.
