Will a more direct route to vacant parking spaces have a positive effect on the CO2 accounts?
COMINATOR Parking module uses sensor data from existing parking board systems. The data are used to indicate the number of vacant spaces in a city's car parks.
With a location-based service, it is possible for users to see the location of the nearest car park with vacant spaces in relation to the user's own location. If the sensor data are not available, users will only be able to see the location of the nearest car park.
In combination with COMINATOR Shopping, Events and Tourism, users will also be able to select a shop and see the nearest car parks in relation to the chosen shop.
Sensor based parking are used by:
- - Viborg Handel
- - Herning City

With the latest version of Apple's software for iPhone, users can get a "purse" in which to collect coupons - Apple Passbook. There are several different types of coupon, for example gift voucher, discount and special offer coupons and concert tickets.
The coupons can be distributed in several different ways, for example via COMINATOR's shopping platform (super specials), other COMINATOR apps or QR barcodes (signs, placards, advertisements, advertising papers and social networks) and e-mail. The coupons show information on ordinary specials.
If users have added a coupon to their Passbooks, it can be shown to users when they are actually in the vicinity of the shop. Users can delete their coupons, but it's an advantage to keep them because loyalty can be built up in this way.
COMINATOR's products come with an administrative app for iPhone which makes it possible to register redeemed coupons in the shop and gain a quick and easy overview of how many coupons have been issued, and how many have been redeemed in the shop.
We're currently working on supporting the same discount and special offers for Android smartphones to one degree or another.
The product can be supplied to shops in towns which use COMINATOR's shopping platform, and it will also be attractive to, for example, chain shops at national level.
City Kolding was first... but your city can also join
COMINATOR has just developed and delivered an entirely new shopping platform for City Kolding: using a smartphone can make shopping in Kolding a lot more interesting.
The shopping platform ensures that users have the required information at hand when they move around the city. It's possible to find shops, cafes, discos, restaurants, cultural activities, accommodation and more. Users can also locate the nearest ATM, carpark and toilets or check train schedules within seconds.
A brand new functionality has been added to the shopping platform: full-screen ads which are activated by shaking the smartphone. The user can then browse through numerous offers in full-screen mode with space for a good message which is easy to read.
The app can be continuously expanded to include even more value-creating functions, including use of the social media, so that a visit to the city's shopping environment can always be seasoned with current specials and exciting experiences.
Contact your local city centre manager/chamber of commerce president if you would like the shopping platform in your city.
