Do you have business experience and are you a software company?

We have our own parking business which we have been running since 2014 with over 1000 parking spaces near Helsinki airport.  Our business model focuses on offering large variety of ancillary services to the customer as well as transporting customers to the terminal and back in a shuttle bus. From the beginning, we have had self-designed software to support our operations.

Also since the start, our customers have booked and paid for parking and ancillary services 90% of the time online.

Based on our experience with our business model, we developed Glops with leading Finnish technology experts and wish to share it with you.

Glops is a unique solution in the parking industry and you can´t find anything comparable anywhere else in the world with such an extensive and comprehensive features as Glops. We started marketing our solution in Summer 2021. We are certain that in one year’s time our solution will be in place in multiple locations and our customers’ business will grow.

Our main philosophy is that all good ideas should benefit all our customers, for free.

Our system is an end-to-end solution and we can integrate your current system into it. We can discuss what sort of system you have right now and what kind of extra benefits our software can bring to you. Could we perhaps increase your utilization rate and your profits? And how could we boost your ancillary sales?

We have a process where we transport customers in a big bus to the airport. What benefits could we get?

Lets discuss together about your current system and business. We believe we can find new ways to work more efficiently and improve parking area´s utilization rate. Could for example dynamic pricing improve your profits? 

We have a process where we transport customers in a shuttle bus to the airport and back.

Our solution is a great tool to minimize unuseful driving and improve customer satisfaction. And what´s best, customers order transportation from you directly via the solution and you communicate with the customer with just one click.

For example, in our business, we only employ 1-3 cars (and people) at the same time, depending on demand. And we do not have separate customer service representatives as we handle customer service and communication through the system, but still in person.

Our customers have been satisfied. Our own
customer satisfaction rate is 4.9/5.0, Facebook feedback rate is 4.8 (out of 5.0) (234 reviews and 9,700 fans) and Google feedback rate is 4.5 (377 reviews).
