ParkWhiz Launches New Amazon Alexa Skill
ParkWhiz announced the launch of a new parking skill for the Amazon Alexa service that allows customers to use voice-activated commands to find, reserve, and pay for parking.
The ParkWhiz skill for Alexa offers a hands-free method to find a parking space near an address, calculate the walking time to their destination, and book parking on ParkWhiz.com. Once booked, drivers receive an email notification with their parking pass, which they can display on their smartphones for validation. The ParkWhiz Skill for Alexa is free to enable and available on any device that supports Amazon Alexa in English in the U.S.
The company believes that incorporating voice-activated technology into its transactions will increase both safety and convenience for drivers when this capability is available in cars. This integration is “the first step in that journey to shape the future of transportation,” according to the company.
