Title
(EN) System and method for parking vehicles using a mobile computing device
Abstract
(EN)

A system and method for parking vehicles using a mobile computing device in which a network of garages and a network of valets are created so that a user can search a given geographical location for a set of parking options including self parking destinations and prices and valet destinations and prices, the user can select an option, upon arrival at the location the user scans an In-App QR code which checks the balance in a user's credit account, the credit account is replenished if necessary, the estimated parking charge is automatically deducted from the user's account and distributed to the garage and the management accounts, and when the user departs the parking location or is picked up by the valet at time desired by the user, the system closes the parking session, calculates the total charges due, deducts the additional charges from the user account and distributes the payment to the garage and the management service provider.
