In December, fast-growing toy and consumer products company ZURU moved to a new head office in Auckland - and brought Parkable along for the ride.
The new office has 95 parking spots, providing ample space for their flexible-working team of over 140 employees. However, ZURU wanted to make sure that their new car parks were easy for staff to use, and that the company would optimize their investment.
Using Parkable, staff can either pay for a long-term car park, or book one of the ‘casual’ parking spots in advance for an easy commute in the morning.
Plus, staff who pay for a long-term park can easily share it with coworkers whenever they’re working from home or on leave, so their car park doesn’t sit empty. They even get a discount on next week’s parking fee to incentivise and reward sharing.
“Parkable has been great! It’s wonderful to provide staff parking that can be fairly shared amongst the team, and the app makes it super easy for people to reserve and pay. It’s been a big bonus for our new office!”
- Toyah Thomson, Office Manager
Parkable also integrates with ZURU’s car park access gate, so employees can open the gate through the app whenever they arrive and leave the parking area. That makes for a touch-free, seamless experience, and does away with the hassle of swipe cards.
“For myself, Parkable’s access gate integration and the intuitive admin panel makes it much quicker and easier to manage the staff car park.”

When they returned to the office, CHFA wanted fair, equitable parking. They chose to remove parking allocations and make most parking available to any employees coming into the office. To manage this transition, CHFA implemented Parkable.
In in June 2021, Datacom lost 100 staff parking spots, leaving them in a tricky situation: they needed to accommodate the same number of employees with half the parking space. To ease the transition, they implemented Parkable.
The Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) Brisbane campus moved offices, transitioning from 28 staff parking spots to just ten, with nine allocated to specific employees. To share parking fairly among the team, AIF implemented Parkable.
Using the Parkable app, humm group employees with an allocated park share their spot with colleagues when they’re away from the office. This ensures that parks won’t sit empty, and other staff can check the app and book a park in advance.
