VANCOUVER, Oct. 11, 2017 /CNW/ - Imperial Parking Canada Corporation (Impark) announced today the deployment at parking facilities in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland of hangTagTM; a new parking app. HangTag allows parkers to conveniently locate parking facilities on a map, view lot details, get driving directions, and pay for parking without going to the meter. The app also provides an early notification when a session is about to expire, allowing parkers to extend time right from their phone.
"Impark is excited to deliver this innovative and improved digital experience for our customers. We conducted extensive consumer research into what parking app users would find most valuable, and HangTag precisely matches those results." Commented Gordon Craig, Impark's President of Canadian Operations. "We're confident that parkers in Vancouver are going to appreciate the new search features, and with the ability to easily add more time as needed, they can park with the peace of mind that they won't overstay. In addition, we know that being able to access parking receipts from the app is an easy and secure way to track those business expenses."
hangTag was first launched in August at Advanced Parking and Metro Parking facilities in Vancouver and Whistler, BC, and with the current deployment of the app throughout many of Impark's lots, hangTag will offer users a wide variety of parking choices in the Lower Mainland.
Impark is also deploying the hangTag app in London, Ontario, in October, and plans include further expansion through Impark's operations in Canada and the United States.
