India, 4th November 2022: KARLOSi Technologies, a leading innovator in the field of parking management, has come up with PARKOSi App, which is a mobile application that allows users to find parking spaces digitally and track their vehicles at any point. Recently, during the occasion of Chhath Puja, PARKOSi in support of the local administration and the Chhath Puja Samiti successfully managed public parking zones. PARKOSi Team helped organize crowded parking spots and more than 2000 vehicles were parked at Patna College Ground, Patna.
Provisions for easy entry and exit were made for public convenience. The App has been designed to be user-friendly and easy to use, with features like adding multiple locations and viewing parking sites by city. PARKOSi also added a feature allowing users to book their parking spots in advance to avoid availability hassle.
PARKOSi identifies unoccupied parking spots and converts them into ‘homely parking’ spots due to its GAAP (Geo-tagged, assured, Accessible Parking & Other Services) feature. It is a mobile application that provides a quick go-to closest parking to the user’s geolocation. Another feature in the app is the Host feature, where home or commercial space owners can let out their parking spaces when their car isn’t occupying that space, and earn money with zero investments. Using the Guest feature, users can search for parking spaces as per their choice of Host and location, book an accessible parking spot for the desired time and pay online. The app also ensures complete transparency between the Host and the Guest, with all the information provided from both ends before the booking.
