Well Almost Everything. . .
Our phones have become a necessary and irreplaceable part of our day-to-day life. This has only accelerated in the last few years, where we all became accustomed to order our coffee through an app, check in at the grocery so our order can be brought to our car, or take a second to ensure the bus dropped our child off at home okay through our front door camera. We routinely use apps to order food, buy tickets, and monitor our home. It is a habit during our commute or traveling beyond our local area to not utilize an app to show us the current traffic or construction, ensuring the best route to take as much stress out of the process. In many ways it would be rare for us not to use an app for a trip, yet many still save time and stress during the drive only to drive around, block after block desperately seeking a parking spot, a deck that is not full, or a lot that allows for longer than 2 hours. Then you find the spot, demonstrate what is a beautiful example of parallel parking, even if you do say so yourself, only to find that this spot still holds the ancient and frustrating coin operated meter. When was the last time you ensured you had quarters in the car?
Roker Inc. gives users GPS directions to available parking and allows them to directly pay right from the comfort of their car. Roker works with private businesses as well as municipalities to track availability of space and to allow for mobile payment, ensuring that you have a spot that is waiting for you at the end of your drive. Having the whole trip planned ensures you make it to the show, dinner, meeting in time and without the stress. Well, without the stress of looking for parking anyway, the presentation might still be on your mind. . .
