Revolutionary New Parking Service Launches in UK

Following the phenomenally successful ParkMagic public pilot and live launch in Ireland during 2005 ParkMagic announces the immediate availability of the service to Parking Operators and Local Authorities across the United Kingdom. From April, in conjunction with PageOne, the UK’s premier business wireless messaging provider, ParkMagic will be available, enabling the deployment of real-time in car “pay and display” style parking payment without the need for meters, IT infrastructure or other capital costs. “We’re delighted be working with ParkMagic to bring this dynamic service to the UK”, said Chris Jones, Managing Director, PageOne. “Utilising our highly robust, nationwide network, ParkMagic can now offer councils and parking operators across the UK a highly cost effective parking control system. Best of all, ParkMagic requires the minimum of up front infrastructure investment.” As revolutionary as ParkMagic’s in-car display system is, motorists still find it child’s play to use. No hassles looking for change! No running to the pay and display machine in the rain! A simple phone call will credit the display unit with the amount of time needed, saving motorists both time and effort. “ParkMagic is about simplicity and usability for all”, added Paul Fitzgerald, Chief Executive ParkMagic. “It is about accessibility and making mobile payment a real and usable payment mechanism for millions. As for how it works – it’s just magic!” adding that the company ethos was to deliver only the best of proven technology but to keep the complexity well hidden.
