We used the popular PHP framework when developing the YourParkingSpace web platform due to its robustness, scalability and intuitive UX opportunities.
Netsells have been partners with YourParkingSpace for many years now, working to build, maintain and enhance their shared economy platform.
We built and continue to manage the back office system used by over 40 London based staff, alongside designing and developing the website and mobile applications for both Android and iOS.
In 2018 we undertook a series of major improvement projects for both native apps focused on improving user experience and acquisition, alongside developing a number of third-party data integrations to allow the platform to work seamlessly.
In 2019/20, after experiencing substantial growth, YourParkingSpace wanted to ensure that they had the infrastructure required to service a rapidly growing user base of landlords and tenants across multiple endpoints, devices and locations.
Alongside working seamlessly across web, iOS and Android, the platform also needed to resiliently deal with fluctuating traffic levels, varied booking schedules and real-time inventory updates.
YourParkingSpace also wanted to integrate a number of third party partnerships, including third-party car park operators and referring platforms such as confused.com. Each of these partnerships required a secure API integration in order to consistently process and provide data.
Our Delivery Process
We worked closely with YourParkingSpace internal stakeholders to gain a full understanding of their problems. We were then able to determine their core business KPIs and the best ways to improve them.
After deciding on a mobile application and web platform, we mapped what the solution would like, outlining a feature roadmap, UI/UX wireframes and conducting cost-benefit analysis.
We worked with YourParkingSpace to integrate their new products, embedding them within their existing process flow and putting mechanisms in place to quantify impact.
As part of an on-going partnership we continue to closely support YourParkingSpace, with a dedicated internal team iteratively delivering updates and improvements to ensure that their solution continues to prove successful.
