Australian parking technology is gaining interest overseas

The largest parking organisations operating in Australia today are foreign-owned entities. In contrast, DIVVY is 100% Australian owned.

As an Australian business, DIVVY is making a positive contribution to Australia’s urban communities by providing smarter parking solutions, and to the country’s economic development and prosperity too.

Most of DIVVY employees are based in Australia, which means Australian jobs, but it also has another very significant implication – the development of Australian-owned world first technology. DIVVY is unique in the Australian parking landscape in its focus on the in-house development and creation of new technology and is constantly developing innovative new technologies. These include the award-winning DIVVY access control devices, the DIVVY payment solution and the new parking aggregator – Justbooked.

The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) is lending support to DIVVY’s vision to export its market -leading technology to the world. Austrade is Australia’s lead government agency for international trade promotion and investment attraction and their Smart Cities initiative is behind DIVVY as it takes its technology to the global marketplace.

DIVVY is receiving interest in European markets, with parking technology companies looking to DIVVY to offer an alternative Smart Cities focused solution for their parking needs. DIVVY access control equipment is an inexpensive solution with little impact on capital works budgets and easy for any electrical contractor to install. DIVVY’s parking solution is attractive to the leaders in the parking and property industry, not just in Australia but globally.

DIVVY is actively engaged in partnership discussions with parking equipment suppliers and parking operators in several European cities including Prague, Vilnius, Cluj and Riga. Of special interest is the work that DIVVY is doing in the IoT space, which to date, has had little impact on the parking industry but is critical to the integration of bookable assets in the Smart Cities environment.

The contribution of Australian owned and operated DIVVY to both smarter cities and local economic growth is clear, both now and into the future. Watch this space!
