Switcher Button

The switcher button is used when you are ready to exchange your parking spot for a certain reward either in cash or credits. Once you tap the switcher button you see your current location and an option to fill up the landmark so as to disclose your current location to the finder that you choose to exchange your parking spot with. It also requires you to fill up the duration for which you are going to use the parking spot, i.e.; you will be asked to give specific timings at which you have parked and at the time at which you plan on exiting the parking area, therefore making it available for the finder.

Once you pick a certain finder your device’s Wi-Fi hotspot will be enabled to direct the finder towards you.

Finder Button

The finder button is used when you are looking for a parking spot, once tapped your current GPS location is automatically picked up and you are asked to hit the search button which automatically finds the switchers around you. Once you choose the specific switcher you would like to switch with, a window automatically opens showing you the minimum and maximum rewards, you as a finder have the option to pay either through credit or cash to the switcher and are asked to choose any amount between the minimum and maximum reward shown by the app.

Once the reward is agreed upon by the switcher, his/her mobile will turn on a Wi-Fi hot spot which will be detected by your phone, once paired the switcher’s current location will be accessible by you. In case your phone is not in range with the switcher’s Wi-Fi, the app. will automatically show you the distance and cardinal direction of the switcher’s Wi- Fi; once within 200 meters range your device will connect to the switcher’s hotspot and hence show you his location. All transactions will be done once you have availed your parking spot either through online confirmation or QR confirmation, as discussed above.

Switcher Parking History

This window shows the switcher his history of transactions showing all the information of his previous switches and also shows him the current switch that he is trying to complete. This window has two tabs one for regular users and another for agents who have private parking lots.

Switcher Parking History (for Agents)

This feature is available only for agents who own their own private parking and want to allow pre-booking of their slots, in this case the agent acts as a switcher and he himself sets the minimum and maximum reward limits for the finders. The switcher (agent) gets to decide to whom he would like to save the parking slots for. Each finder in this case is given his own unique identity code after he pre-books. The agent’s parking history saves all the identity codes for each individual finder and has a search bar which finds the unique QR code before the finder avails his pre-booked parking space.

Finder Parking History

This window keeps track of the history of rewards offered by you as a finder and allows you to review your current reward offers as well.

Reviews

A review is given by the finder to the switcher and vice versa. This review will be seen by finder and switchers you communicate with in the future.

Settings and Help

Settings allow you to change the basic functions of your app and allows you to mute notifications, choose silent mode, change your display picture and name.

The help bar allows the user to better understand how to use the application and also better understand it.

  • Operation Mode

    There are two different operation modes in the application which are named B2B and B2C:

  • 1
    B2B

    B2B is an abbreviation for business to business, in this case the application is used between an agent (switcher) and a finder, here the minimum and maximum reward is set by an agent for a certain slot that can be availed by a finder. In this case the agent has to have private parking that he can offer to a finder; once the switcher chooses a reward the finder receives a unique QR code and this QR code will be used to identify him by the agent before he avails his parking slots that were pre-booked.

  • 2
    B2C

    B2C is an abbreviation for business to client, this is the way the app is generally used between a person who is about to switch parking spots (switcher) and the person looking for parking (finder). While using the app in this way there is no private parking lot involved and the reward is given directly to the switcher as he leaves the temporary parking spot and makes it available for the finder.
