Parkmobile Introduces Parking Reservations into the Parkmobile App, Delivering the Industry’s First Complete App-Based Parking Solution

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 24, 2017

Parkmobile, the leading provider of mobile parking solutions in North America, announced today that it has launched parking reservations capabilities into the Parkmobile App. Parkmobile currently enables consumers to pay on-demand for on-street and off-street parking in over 2,000 locations and 250 cities across the US and Canada. With this enhanced functionality, available to owners and operators, Parkmobile will instantly enable its more than 6 million users to also find, reserve, and pay for parking in off-street parking facilities, delivering the only complete solution for all parking types through a single application. This release represents the next phase in Parkmobile’s mission to leverage technology and innovation to eliminate friction and maximize convenience and efficiency in parking for the owner, operator, and consumer.

Initially available in iOS, Parkmobile’s latest release is the first of its kind to offer an innovative and comprehensive app for all parking types. Markets launching today include Washington, D.C., the San Francisco Bay Area and Kansas City, MO, with many more scheduled to launch in the coming months.

“This is a tremendous step forward in realizing Parkmobile’s vision of consolidating all parking inventory and options through a single user interface,” said Jon Ziglar CEO of Parkmobile. “No longer does a consumer have to switch from one parking app to another to pay for parking on-street, reserve a space in advance, or find where they can go for the big game or concert. With Parkmobile, it is all there in one place. Connecting our user base of over 6 million consumers to our unparalleled network of on-street parking inventory and now the ability to see and reserve parking in advance for off-street facilities as well, we are delivering a complete, seamless parking experience to consumers. Further, this comprehensive app expands the options and visibility available to our clients to maximize the value of their parking and mobility related assets.”

Key features of the update include:

  • Reservation of spaces at gated facilities and major event venues across the country.
  • Completely redesigned, modern, intuitive user experience
  • Map-based view to see and quickly navigate to on and off-street parking as well as view nearby retail, restaurants and transit options
  • Nearby zones automatically populate in the screen to enable 1 tap zone number entry
  • Improved sign-up flow including camera capture for credit cards

“The industry is moving rapidly and technologies are converging as consumers increasingly expect real-time access to information and options in one place. We saw long ago that separating on-demand from reservations, events or permits created a disjointed experience for the consumer, not to mention requiring owners and operators to go to multiple vendors for various parking types. With the advanced Parkmobile App, we have built the foundation to usher in the next evolution in mobility.”

Users can now download the new consolidated app for iOS, with reservations coming to Android and mobile web in the coming weeks.

Terma Software Sees Over 100% Growth in Services for Workload Optimization

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 24, 2017

Terma Software introduced its Workload Service Model for optimization of Workload Automation environments over a year ago, in order to address the growing challenges organizations are facing with their workload solutions as complexity continues to grow. Since the introduction of this service offering, Terma has experienced significant growth and interest in the services that help to optimize batch workload environments as well as manage their inherent complexity. These services take a process based approach and employ both operational and statistical analyses to address inefficiencies and lack of insight into the management of the highly complex interdependent processes used to support critical business activities.

Shane Hade, CEO of Terma comments, “Many of our customers and prospects are challenged by not only time constraints, but also the lack of resources needed to analyze and develop service models for workload automation. Our service models help identify inefficient practices used within workload scheduling solutions such as AutoSys, CA 7, and Tidal. Once these models are applied and aligned with redesigned operational practices, a more reliable and efficient service can leveraged.”

Jim Anderson, VP, Product Strategy, Sales & Marketing says, “Our professional service business has grown significantly due to a need in the workload automation customer base to drive more efficiency within IT operations. The capabilities inherent in our analytics solution, combined with the knowledge and experience of our consultants, helps customers develop a more efficient and reliable approach, insuring that the implemented processes meet their desired expectations. The Terma Workload Service Model is what drives this.”

New Info from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Provides Insight Into the Reasons for Plastic Surgery’s Continued Growth, Says Dr. J Plastic Surgery

Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) May 24, 2017

A May 22 article on Business Insider reveals new information from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) showing continued growth for the practice of plastic surgery. In the new study, nose shaping rhinoplasty led procedures in terms of dollars, with a mindboggling $1.1 billion spent in the United States during 2016; closely following was breast augmentation with $1.08 billion. Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon, Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., known more casually to his patients simply as Dr. J, says that the new data reflect many important societal factors, including the growing use of plastic surgery by male patients and the increased social acceptance of all procedures by all genders. Dr. J notes that, increasingly, people view plastic surgery and other procedures as simply another way to make the most of their appearance.

Among the more intriguing statistics included in the article, Dr. J notes that American men obtained 55,024 rhinoplasties and 30,958 blepharoplasty (eyelid) procedures last year as well as numerous liposuctions, facelifts, and tummy tucks. Dr. J notes that U.S. males in particular have historically been somewhat resistant to the notion of appearance-improving procedures, largely based on outmoded notions of masculinity. Dr. J notes, however, that it’s not only millennial men who are more open-minded about plastic surgery, as many of the men he sees are middle-aged and older. He notes that many of them say they are concerned with remaining relevant both professionally and socially – a growing issue for both genders as more and more people are remaining healthy and active well into their later years.

Dr. J notes, however, that what’s really going on is an overall growing public acceptance of plastic surgery. He adds that, while gossip web sites still sometimes stoke the fires of controversy around procedures with headlines about celebrities “confessing” to “accusations” of plastic surgery, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the general public believes there’s nothing to confess or accuse about. Dr. J says that more and more people are coming around to the view that plastic surgery is, at heart, not that much different from altering an individual’s wardrobe or hairstyle. He notes that, while any procedure is serious business and requires the skills of a board certified plastic surgeon, it’s a procedure that should remain open to anyone who’s ready to take a big step towards looking and feeling their very best.

Readers who are interested in learning more about Dr. J’s qualifications are welcomed to call his office at 310-683-0200. They can also learn more via his web site.
