Avaya helps new app Beyond Park digitalize the parking experience

Developed in Melbourne , Beyond Park was created to eliminate the frustrations drivers experience when visiting carparks in shopping centers , airports , universities and other venues .

Avaya is working with Australian engineering firm , InnerVision Engineering , to digitalize the parking experience .

InnerVision has deployed the Avaya Cloud Office by RingCentralR communications platform to power real-time customer support for Beyond Park , its ticketless and cashless parking app .
“ The average Australian spends three months in their lifetime looking for a parking spot , and countless drivers have endured hefty fees after losing a paper ticket . Beyond Park changes how people enter and exit carparks to eliminate these and the myriad other headaches we ’ ve all experienced ,” said Darren Casha , Founder and Managing Director at InnerVision Engineering .
The mobile app gives consumers instant access to information for every carpark in supported locations , including venues that may not be partnered with Beyond Park . Commercial venues that deploy Beyond Park gain access to an all-in-one parking solution , including on-site software and hardware plus Avaya-powered web portal and help desk services .
InnerVision selected the Avaya Cloud Office communications platform to support every exit terminal and pay-on-foot facility where Beyond Park is installed . The secure , cloud-based software allows drivers who need assistance to use any intercom facility to instantly connect with the Beyond Park help desk .
