COPENHAGEN, Denmark, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Simpli-City, a Copenhagen-based tech start-up announced today that Simply-Park, an intelligent parking reminder solution is now available on Kickstarter for crowdfunding. The project pledges for KR70,000 (USD10,563) by Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 8:40 AM EDT.
Simply-Park aims to improve parking experience by reducing the possibility of expired parking and consequently avoiding the economic loss. This hits the pain points of lots of car owners, who almost all have eaten tickets of expired parking.
The solution consists of a Bluetooth 4.0 token and a smartphone app. Users need to install the app and place the token anywhere in the car, then the app will:
- Remember WHEN the car was parked – a countdown automatically starts when drivers leave the car
- Locates WHERE the car was parked – it's easier and time-saving to find and get back to the car
- ALERT users before the parking time expires – it's automatic, you don't need to manually set the reminder
The idea of Simply-Park came from Dawei, co-founder of Simpli-City and an experienced project manager. He received several tickets due to expired parking and decided not to lose more money in that way, because "it's unnecessary to remember when and where we park and how much time is left before we must move the car to avoid a ticket. We should be free from parking concerns and other travails because we have more important things to do!"
30 days is set on Kickstarter.com for this fundraising campaign to reach a total of KR70,000. If the target is met, all funds will be transferred to the project owner to bring the product to the world; otherwise, the project receives nothing. Simpli-City has provided a selection of rewards to different levels of backers, including early bird products with appealing prices, special color with backer's name, logo t-shirt and more. The project will use the funds mainly for app development on Android/iOS and mass manufacturing of the token.
The team aims to finish the app development on iOS in September and to deliver the final product to backers in early December. Once the funds raised reaches more than 180% of the original target, the Android version will be developed. To learn more about the project, visit www.simplypark.dk or
