Netsells have worked with YourParkingSpace since 2014 to build, maintain and enhance their shared-economy platform.
Shared-Economy marketplace YourParkingSpace is the online parking marketplace where you'll find parking spaces, driveways and garages for rent throughout the UK
Working closely with the YourParkingSpace team, Netsells built and manage the back office system used by over 40 london based staff, designed and developed the mobile applications for Android & iOS. We continue to work closely with YourParkingSpace as they strive towards their next round of multi-million-pound investment.
“At the close of 2014 when we first contacted Netsells we were simply looking for a web development company. What we ended up finding in Netsells surpassed any of our expectations. Not only do you gain access to an incredibly talented web development team, you also get invaluable advice to help guide all aspects of the business’s technology and strategy, all accompanied with an attitude and work ethic that would surpass even the best in-house teams. Netsells have been central to our growth over these past few years, they would be my go-to company for any web development requirements.”
Charles Cridland, CTO, YourParkingSpace
After experiencing substantial initial 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. This required a development agency who were technically proficient in the underlying infrastructure requirements, system architecture best practices and used to working with complex database structures.
Crafting an amazing user experience and onboarding flow for both tenants and landlords was also of central concern. YourParkingSpace tasked Netsells with providing a feature set deliberately designed to drive growth and stickiness in the user base from both the supply and demand sides
YourParkingSpace had also built up a number of third party partnerships, including third-party car park operators and referring platforms such as confused.com. Each of these partnerships required the development of a custom API and secure public-facing API surface in order to securely process and provide data.
We worked alongside the YourParkingSpace team to re-develop their existing platform and take it to a wider market with a vastly increased feature set. Alongside providing a stable and fully functional platform, we built and implemented a number of features to drive revenue and profitability.
YourParkingSpace currently hosts over 200 users per minute on average across iOS and Android, with 100% crash-free sessions on the latest release (3.8.4). The app currently has over 100,000 downloads and processes around 85,000 bookings per month. The platform has also gathered over 75,000 TrustPilot “excellent” rated reviews.
