The partnership will see GoGet and Divvy integrate their respective platforms in Sydney at first, with a national roll out following later this year.
The two companies will use their platforms to connect GoGet’s fleet of 2000 cars to parking spaces in Divvy’s growing commercial portfolio, following the rollout of the parking platform’s “industry changing” access technology.
GoGet will leverage Divvy’s extensive network to connect with commercial parking space owners and managers (e.g. in CBD office towers) - who the two companies say are eager to improve the yield on underutilised spaces - with the aim of securing a wider variety of GoGet reserved spots for users in Sydney.
The partnership follows last month’s announcement of Divvy’s partnerships with major commercial property groups including DEXUS Property Group, GPT Group and Knight Frank, and the recent securing of $2.5 million in Series A funding to accelerate implementation of technology that will transform how people access short and long term parking in the CBD.
Nick Austin, founder and CEO of Divvy Parking said that GoGet shared his company’s “passion for innovative technology that makes our lives easier, and our cities smarter.”
“At Divvy, we have long admired GoGet’s smart solution for people in need of accessible, sustainable and affordable transport options. We’re excited to be working together to improve transport and parking services for Australians and opening up more spaces for GoGet customers in city centres.
“GoGet understands that people lead different lifestyles today that demand flexible options and this is something that also guides everything we do at Divvy. Whether you’re picking up your kids from school, commuting from home two days a week, or having dinner in the CBD after work, people need affordable and convenient options that fit in with their changing schedules."
Business Development Manager at GoGet, Chris Vanneste, said, "GoGet is all about convenience. Our members want vehicles near where they work and live, so they can quickly and easily access them when they need to.
“By partnering with Divvy, we hope to scale our smart city solutions more rapidly, opening up further opportunities to help commercial property developers, owners and governments make our cities more connected and efficient for all residents and businesses."
