2016 Was A Great Year At Parking Panda!

As 2016 comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the great things that we've accomplished as a team this year! We've had a ton of fun making parking as painless as possible for our customers, and we hope that we've saved our great customers a few headaches along the way! 

Here are some highlights from a fabulous year at Parking Panda:

  • 2,500,000+ transactions were completed through our service. That's 2.5 million times that we were able to provide painless parking experiences for our customers!
  • 200+ parking garages or lots now feature our "PandaScan" technology! The easiest way to do parking, "PandaScan" allows you to lift the gate for entry or exit at a parking location simply by scanning a QR code on your phone. 
  • 369 features were added to our app and website. Our engineering team lives and breathes ease and simplicity. They're constantly working to improve our product so that you can get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible, no matter where that might be. 
  • We gave away 3 years and 9 months worth of free parking this year! We teamed up with Apple Pay to give away free parking all summer long in 2016. Three lucky customers each won a FREE YEAR OF PARKING! Checkout with Apple Pay on our iOS app for the smoothest payment procedure possible, or learn more right here
  • 6 dogs regularly made appearances in the Parking Panda office. Nothing is better than taking a quick break from work to say hello to Isabelle, Biscuit, Chewie, Apollo, Zim, or Duncan! These friendly canines make each day at PP Headquarters even brighter, and we're always down to fill them with yummy treats. 
  • We expanded our service to the city of Edmonton in Canada! Edmonton is the second major city in Canada that we now operate in, along with Toronto. Construction of a gorgeous new arena, Rogers Place, was completed this fall in downtown Edmonton! A world-class arena deserves a world class parking experience, so we partnered with Rogers Place to offer guaranteed parking reservations at lots and garages nearby.
  • Our customers saved $2,163,447 by taking advantage of online discounts offered on our website. That's a lot of dough! Keep your eye out for the green "online discount" banner when you book your parking reservation. At these locations, the amount that you pay on our website is guaranteed to be lower than what you would pay directly at the garage. 
  • 1,160 ping pong games were played in the Parking Panda office this year. We Pandas love decompressing with a good game of doubles on the office ping pong table. It provides us with a quick opportunity to blow off some steam and interact with teammates from different departments. 
We're excited to build off of this momentum in the coming year. We can't wait to add even more fabulous customers and provide them with an effortless parking experience!
