SPOT has eclipsed 20,000 downloads in Boston alone and has introduced “SPOT 2.0.” SPOT was founded in Boston in July 2014 as a sharing economy solution to the parking industry.
The dramatically enhanced version features a new look and feel with instant SPOT search, fine-tuned management and streamlined booking.
Among the numerous improvements in SPOT 2.0:
Find and reserve a spot with three taps in less than 20 seconds-
Secure a spot for as little as 30 minutes or for up to months in advance
Earn supplemental income for individuals or businesses with minimal hassle
Receive real-time pricing analysis from SPOT’s expert team
Use predictive search based on popular and recent locations
The SPOT app allows users to reserve a space that is guaranteed to be available when they arrive. A cashless payment component eliminates the need for money to change hands. Owners receive a useful source of supplementary income without requiring any active management, while renters gain access to more affordable parking paired with certainty and peace of mind.
After a short beta testing period, SPOT officially launched in December of 2014. The company’s next focus is expansion, with plans to launch SPOT in Chicago and Philadelphia later this summer. Longer term, SPOT expects to roll out in Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.
