Stuttgart, 7 March 2019 – APCOA PARKING will again participate at this year’s leading global real estate fair MIPIM which will take place from 12 to 15 March 2019 in the French city of Cannes. The company presents itself with a new booth at a new location (P4.C1).

At the fair, APCOA PARKING will inform, among other things, about the many innovations that the company has launched onto the market since 2018. At its forefront is the open, scalable digital platform APCOA FLOW – a central element on the way to the digitalization of APCOA. The transformation from a business-centric car park operator to a consumer-oriented provider of mobility services and digital services has thus made decisive progress.

The introduction of the APCOA FLOW platform, which also includes a smartphone app for consumers, which allows ticketless access and automatic payment was another important milestone. The API based platform is compatible, open and scalable and enables APCOA to enter into new collaborations. Already today, 1.4 million Volkswagen leasing customers in Germany can use APCOA FLOW. In Denmark APCOA closely collaborates with Brobizz, the leading payment provider for road and bridge tolls and ferries. Further discussions are underway with potential partners in the automotive industry, with carsharing and car rental providers, as well as with fuel card, fleet management and e-charging companies.

Visit us from March 12 to 15 at our new booth P4.C1 at MIPIM in Cannes to find more about the solutions of APCOA and to discuss opportunities to partner.
