SITA Airport IT GmbH has been operating its Parkvogel® (parkvogel.de) brand car park at the Carlsplatz in Düsseldorf's Old Town since the beginning of 2015. The very innovation-oriented company is now taking the next step with evopark as its cooperation partner to make parking in the city centre more comfortable for motorists. Starting 16/11/2015, the Parkvogel car park at the Carlsplatz will augment the evopark network.
Motorists receive their personal “evotag” by mail from evopark (evopark.de) – a card with an RFID chip that automatically opens the gates of participating car parks with the help of wireless technology. No need to awkwardly approach the gate and take a parking ticket. Cashless payment eliminates the need to go to the pay station.
Dr. Christian Jahncke, Managing Director of SITA Airport IT GmbH, is delighted with the partnership:
“Parking connects. The innovative ideas of evopark and the know-how of SITA Airport IT with its Parkvogel® brand connect the two companies to form an attractive concept at the Carlsplatz car park. This is how we want to contribute to making the parking experience as convenient as possible for all visitors to the car park and this beautiful quarter and its shops”.
“Our collaboration with Parkvogel® and SITA Airport IT represents a very important step forward for us. On the one hand, the Carlsplatz car park will be a very centrally located property in Düsseldorf for us. On the other hand, SITA Airport IT is a very valuable partner for the continued development of our service” says Tobias Weiper, Co-Founder and Managing Director of evopark GmbH.

evopark GmbH was founded in the summer of 2014 as a start-up by a young and ambitious team and was already being financed by several well-known business angels. With the aim of reinventing parking and thus solving an everyday problem for many people, a market-ready product was developed within a very short time. The rapidly growing car park network already offers several parking facilities in Düsseldorf and offers numerous customers a new parking experience there. This market entry was made possible by close collaboration with powerful partners such as SITA Airport IT GmbH and Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH.
