Pay-by-mobile parking meters may be coming to Minneapolis early in the New Year, according to the Star Tribune.
Several months ago the city requested proposals from companies willing to provide the service and the city staff have returned to recommend Parkmobile USA. Other companies who submitted bids include CALE, IQA, MobileNow, Pango, Passport, and Software for Good.
If approved by City Council, the technology would be made available in 2015, following a limited field test. The system is expected to have “minimal to no cost” according to the report.

Mobile devices have become so ingrained in our daily lives that they are used just as frequently at home — if not more — than when on the go. Even while unwinding in front of the TV, most individuals have their smartphone or tablet nearby to play games, check social media and email, or browse the web.
It is for this reason that many forms of cross-platform marketing have been developed in hopes of creating a cohesive marketing and branding message across all channels. In a recent announcement, Xaxis shared the expanded launch of Xaxis Sync throughout the Asia-Pacific market.
Xaxis is currently the largest programmatic media and technology platform in the world, and their innovative Xaxis Sync technology offers programmatic advertising that is coordinated with the TV commercials the consumer is watching at home.
