As a result of Amakin signing a strategic partnership with the Kuwait-based company PASS, Bahrain has implemented smart parking, starting with the terminal in Adliya. The agreement will enable Amakin to exchange knowledge and benefit from parking innovations developed by PASS.
The first smart parking management system in the Middle East employs automated number plate recognition (ANPR) technology to improve parking. According to a statement from the company, PASS customers will be able to access all Amakin locations and use the PASS mobile application to manage their parking and make payments in a seamless digital experience.
Amakin CEO Tariq Al Jowder said in a statement: “By establishing digital partnerships with leading ecosystem players, Amakin strives to meet its customers’ expectations and objectives by delivering the most innovative services and up-to-date technology tied with our ambition to deliver an absolute parking experience.
“We are consistently striving to find new ways to enrich our clients’ experiences and provide them with unrivalled mobility offerings as the region’s leading mobility integrator.” Al Jowder said the inclusion of this service intends to extend Amakin’s service portfolio, expand its user-friendly approach, and provide the local community with cutting-edge solutions within parking structures.
It follows in the footsteps of Amakin’s multiple digital initiatives to provide a streamlined mobility journey for Bahrain’s company, including its partnership with SADAD, the adoption of Apple Pay, and the adoption of BenefitPay to pay for parking.
