Parkopedia, has launched a new Amazon Alexa Skill for voice-enabled parking assistance, supporting Americans who plan to travel by car this summer.
Parkopedia’s Alexa Skill enables drivers to seamlessly find, reserve and pay for a parking spot, either from home with Alexa-enabled smart home devices or on-the-go.
Thus, when a driver needs help finding the most convenient parking space, they can just say ”Alexa, find parking nearby” or use locations, such as ”Alexa, find parking in Seattle”.
Parkopedia Skill is providing users with information such as accurate parking location, pricing and facility opening hours, as well as confirming the required parking duration and total cost prior to booking.
If a location has multiple parking options, drivers can ask Alexa to skip suggestions until they find a parking spot which best suits their needs.
Using Amazon’s cloud-based voice service, drivers will have access to the Parkopedia database of almost 75,000 off-street parking locations across America.
This include more than 6,000 reservable locations – allowing drivers to find the nearest parking spot either to a given address, their current location, or at their final destination.
Drivers are also able to ask the Parkopedia Skill to verbally confirm reservations, make payments via Amazon Pay, or request for an e-receipt to be sent.
Parkopedia is a car services provider that helps drivers find and pay for parking, EV charging, fuel and tolls in 15,000 cities across 89 countries.
