Los Angeles-based CurbStand, the app that allows users to seamlessly locate, pay and tip for valet parking from their mobile devices, today unveiled a brand-new consumer app with new on-demand features, such as allowing drivers to ‘Request A Car,’ among other enhancements. In tandem, CurbStand launched a companion app exclusively for valet operators to communicate directly with their customers and deliver the ultimate valet experience across CurbStand’s growing valet parking network.
CurbStand is ushering in a new era for valet parking, combining ‘mobile-first’ innovation, real-time communication of valet parking availability and cashless payment. The introduction of new features and two-way interactivity showcases how it’s pioneering real-time communication between drivers and valet operators across its parking network.
Users can check in to the nearest valet using the app, request their car, and pay. No cash needed.
Currently available in Los Angeles and Miami, CurbStand is expanding both its consumer and valet operator apps’ reach to other major U.S. cities. For example, the Company has already begun initial operations in Dallas, Austin, and Houston, and expects to fully launch in those markets before the close of 2014.
“CurbStand is first-to-market in transforming the valet experience by enabling in-app two-way communication between the driver and the valet attendant,” said Serge Gojkovich, CEO of CurbStand. “We’re allowing consumers to get to the leisurely activities they enjoy – dine, shop, and be entertained – quicker. As for valet operators, we’re giving their businesses an added tech boost and getting them closer to the consumer. Combined with the bolstering of our network, CurbStand is well-positioned to redefine valet parking.”
The new valet app allows valet attendants to create user profiles with the car’s description, including the make, model, and color. As users check in from one location to another within the CurbStand valet network, attendants will have immediate access to the CurbStand user profile to quickly retrieve the user’s vehicle. Most importantly, as long as the venue is in the network, users will be treated as a valued CurbStand customer.
