Miami-Based Technology Company Launches Their App-Based, On-Demand Parking Service at The Falls Shopping Center
(Miami, FL) – MyPark, the Miami-based parking solutions provider used by malls, private and public garages and property management companies, today announced the continued expansion of their partnership with Simon Property Group to launch their on-demand, mobile, premium self-parking service at The Falls shopping center in Kendall. The launch comes just in time for the holiday shopping rush, and will feature a total of 8 new spaces at two key locations at the mall. The MyPark app provides guests with the ability to choose where and when they want to park at the mall with the simple touch of a button.
MyPark has installed 8 reserved, numbered spaces at The Falls in two locations, which include:
- Entrance by BJ’s & TGI Fridays (Section A) – 4 spaces
- Main Entrance (Section B) – 4 spaces
Spaces can be reserved, or requested on-demand,through the app for $3 for up to two hours and $3 each additional hour. MyPark-trained attendants are on-site until the end of November to help customers download and navigate the app, and assist with any parking questions.
“Our initial launch at Dadeland Mall was met with such enthusiasm, we knew we had to continue to expand our partnership and bring the convenience of MyPark to The Falls,” said Luis Mayendia, President & CEO of MyPark. “With its sprawling and open-air design, The Falls is a really special place and we wanted to make sure that visitors could further enjoy their time by greatly enhancing the parking experience. The Simon Mall team believes in innovation and the addition of MyPark is another step in making shopping at The Falls even more enjoyable.”
The Falls is the second Simon Property in Florida to implement the emerging technology, in which shoppers can reserve a prime parking spot both when and where they need it, directly from their smartphones. MyPark’s app and intelligent connected reservation unit allows consumers to locate and reserve a prime parking spot in the best locations close to where they want to be at the mall. The solution eliminates the time and effort exerted driving up and down the parking aisles in search of an ideal spot near a desired store entrance.
Users can go to the usemypark.com website and click on the links to their respective app stores or download the app directly from the Android or iOS stores, register and tell the app where and when they would like to park. Then they choose the section they want (the best spot is selected automatically by default) and confirm their reservation. Once users arrive at their reserved space, they simply tap “Let Me In” on their iOS or Android device and the unique MyPark reservation unit will lower to give them access.
“Simon Properties understands that innovation is the key to customer satisfaction. At The Falls, we embrace this philosophy and continually evolve to offer our customers more choices and enhance their shopping experience.” said Dailen Rodriguez, General Manager. “MyPark offers convenience, affordable parking choices, and ease of access, which we believe will be a win for both guests and retailers.”
NEW VALIDATION FEATURE!
Currently available at select malls throughout the country, MyPark will further enhance guest parking ease and satisfaction for mall shoppers with its new in-app validation feature. Retailers and restaurants can now offer their guests MyPark’s premium parking validations to drive more customers into their locations.
Guests simply park in a MyPark designated spot and visit a participating merchant. The retailer or restaurant enters a one-time validation code and either pays for the parking session. The system gives shoppers an incentive to visit a specific retailer and provides retailers a new way to reward their customers.
FREE TRIAL OFFER
To celebrate MyPark’s debut at The Falls, the company is offering a free trial of the program for first time users through the use of promo code “MYPARK1” which can be entered upon downloading the app and registering.
