Popular Parkmobile App Adds Allstate Roadside Services Functionality

November 20, 2012

Parkmobile took the hassle out of parking by allowing users to pay for parking at designated stalls through an app and even receive notifications when their time is about to expire, and has just made their service even better. 

The company has now announced the latest version of its app will have the Allstate Roadside Services functionality.

Laurens Eckelboom, EVP of Parkmobile USA Inc., is enthusiastic about the partnership with Allstate Roadside Services. With more than four million dispatches each year, they are the leading United States roadside service provider. 

In a recent statement, he said this will offer their member an “added safety benefit and peace of mind when they need roadside assistance.” Eckelboom says Parkmobile is continuously looking for ways to add more value for their members and that Allstate Roadside Services does just that; “By including Allstate Roadside Services into our app, we are providing our members the very best roadside service available.”

Anthony Royer, president of Allstate Roadside Services, sees the partnership with Parkmobile USA as another example of their support of emerging technologies; "Allstate Roadside Services is Reinventing RoadsideSM through continuous innovation and first-to-market technologies.”

Eckelboom says there is more to come in the future for Parkmobile USA. One feature that is already in the works is the ability to pay for roadside service through the mobile app, offering users greater convenience.

The Parkmobile app is free, and it is available for Android (News - Alert), Apple, Blackberry and Windows. There is also a mobile Web version available. Their services are available in 350 cities. 

The app has received 4.5 stars in the Google Play store; out of 3,957 ratings, 2,640 of the ratings give it five stars and 1,007 of the ratings give it four stars.
