|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 620 000|
|Project duration||September 2022 - March 2023|
|Venture||Strategic Innovation Program Drive Sweden|
Purpose and goal
The goal of the Parkcess feasibility study was to develop a digital prototype for parking purchases and to test functions and business models with participating property owners and municipalities. Because of insights gained from the project, the team has succeeded in creating a prototype that consists of both a calculator and marketplace. Various functions and business models have been tested and the project has also created two business models that may be suitable for further development in future projects.
Expected results and effects
The result of this project is a digital prototype that consists of a marketplace for parking purchases that helps to shift resources from new construction of parking spaces to promoting the sharing of existing resources and sustainable mobility. The prototype also contains a calculator for more efficient, transparent, standardized calculation of the required parking norms in the early stages of a building permit process. It further contributes to better agreement between municipality and property developers as well as a more efficient use of resources.
Planned approach and implementation
The feasibility study has been carried out in sprint form and workshop series. The project started with a technical study and a mapping of "pains and gains" for property owners and municipalities. Selected projects were used as reference cases for development of the prototype and business models. The prototype was created and continuously updated in close collaboration with the digital agency, property developers and the municipalities within the project. Knowledge dissemination has taken place between several municipalities and property owners via physical and digital meetings
