Mobile payment brings new convenience to the city

MobileNOW!, the global technology innovator with the world’s most flexible and friendly mobile parking payment, has successfully launched  in New Bedford, Massachusetts with metered on-street spaces.

Residents and commuters can park and pay quickly and easily using the free MobileNOW! app or IVR system. Customers manage their parking sessions remotely with MobileNOW! app.

“Using MobileNOW! means faster parking, secure payment and total convenience,” said John Oglesby, MobileNOW! President and CEO. “It’s a great way for customers to enjoy a smooth and effortless parking experience with the added benefit of avoiding a parking ticket when a parking session is about to expire—one simple click is all it takes to extend your session. Perhaps best of all, the extension has no fee, just parking.”

MobileNOW! provides real time integration with New Bedford’s enforcement system. Payment and transaction data is available in real time to New Bedford enforcement officers using Complus provided handheld devices. Parking personnel will now view up-to-the-minute information on their handheld ticket writer, thus reducing human error and inadvertent citation issuance.

Oglesby added, “We applaud New Bedford for leveraging new technologies to better serve their community — and, we know citizens will love the convenience and  the city will grow revenues, thus generating more services to the citizens.”
