Plantation, Fla. October 2010 – A crowded booth is always a good sign and Automated Valet leadership is happy with the reception of its latest product on display last week at the National Parking Association tradeshow. The Parking Show of Shows, the NPA's 59th Annual Convention and Exposition, was held Oct. 11-14 at the Seaport Hotel and Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, Mass. Hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of guests participated in the show where Automated Valet unveiled its new website www.valetparkingapps.com.
The website serves the market for Automated Valet’s new parking apps available for valet operators and valet customers as well. Operators can download apps which offer the full power of Automated Valet’s operating system, AVPM, for use on a smart phone. For valet customers, the website offers apps where reservations can be created easily and rewards can also be tracked for frequent patronage.
The apps simplify the process of parking for staff and customers and provide a powerful tool for revenue control. Automated Valet apps are Apple approved and free and can be downloaded from the iPhone app store.
“The theme of the show was “Connecting People” and that is one of the great things this new technology can do,” says Ken Gulec, CEO and Founder of Automated Valet. “Like so many other apps out there, it gives everyone more options, more time and more connectivity to the rest of the world.”
Automated Valet has created several customized valet apps for its clients, in addition to the two that are available to the public. The company can customize an app for any operation regardless of size or set up.
Gulec says the convention was a success for everyone in attendance and he appreciates the NPA for the efforts it makes each year on behalf of the parking industry.
“We are proud of our showing at the convention,” Gulec says. “We went there to share with the industry this groundbreaking new approach to valet parking and we did it. Our expectations were met and exceeded.”
