AUSTIN - August 14, 2014 – A new, better way to pay, Parqer is an exciting new app enabling consumers to pay their valet through their mobile app. Simple, safe, and fast—no cash necessary. Founded by a University of Texas alum, Parqer launched in Dallas in May and has quickly expanded across the city and to locations in Arlington, Houston, and now - Austin.
Parqer has partnered with Next Level Valet and Concourse Valet to bring the app to Central Texas. Uchi, Uchiko, parkside, olive & june, and the backspace are among the first Austin locations utilizing Parqer's smart and convenient cashless service, and Vince Young's Steakhouse, Fogo de Chao, and The Belmont will be coming online soon.
Parqer is available now for free download through the iTunes® Store for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. After setting up an account with a link to a credit or debit card, users can then check in when visiting Parqer’s participating locations and make easy secure in-app payments eliminating the need to carry cash or make those last minute stops at the ATM.
Trends show consumers are utilizing technology more and more to pay in ways that best fit their lifestyles. They are looking for shortcuts that provide speed, convenience and a user friendly experience. With Parqer, consumers get just this. They can leave the cash at home and with a few taps, be on their way.
Parqer is expanding throughout the country and will release its Android app later this summer.
