We are Spotlabs and we are going to transform Malaysia parking into the era of digital solution. We want to build the first digital parking market in Malaysia!
Our solution is simple, we want to build a mobile application that will help you find parking lots to where you’re going. With this app, you will be able to find parking around you in an instant! (subject to availability)
Who we are?
Spotlabs is a newly found startup company that is on a mission to transform Malaysia parking market into the digital era of technological mobility and smart connectivity. Urban mobility in Malaysia, especially for parking, is in need of digital transformation to ensure we are ready and not left behind in the implementation of autonomous cars.
Our mission statement is simple, to provide the best digital solution of parking services to accelerate the growth of smart mobility in Malaysia and potentially in ASEAN.
Our product,Spot+ is a mobile application that enables drivers to search for the nearest parking location, review their rates and detail such as (Car Wash, EV charging station, valet and etc.), and then navigate directly to the entrances of the parking location itself.
Navigation through this app will help you save your time in search for a parking spot instead of using common navigation mobile application such as Waze and Google Map
Further the development, we also plan to introduce an availability function where you could know the parking spot or location availability before coming, which will greatly help you plan your journey.
By downloading SPOT+, you could greatly benefit from comprehensive digital parking information that helps drivers makes a more informed decision.
Where we at right now
As of right now, we are in the stage of developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) / Prototype, and we are testing it now to sort out the bugs before we launch the mobile application.
We expect to be able to complete the development work by October 2019 and launch Spot+ Beta in the same month.
Currently, we have over 350+ parking lots details are in our database right now! and we are aiming to publish around 2000+ parking lots around Klang Valley in our mobile application.
Help us to achieve this and let’s make finding parking in Malaysia hassle free!
What We Need & Use of Fund?
We need MYR120,000 to fund our seed series stage to accelerate our development and release as soon as possible!
The breakdown of funding are primarily:
- Mobile app development (Sustaining cost without advertisement),
- Collection and verification of parking data cost (Klang Valley)
Instead of scrapping data from google or other mappings providers. We believe that we need to verify and collect parking information. Much of these data are not available online and could only be collected on-site.
We also are remapping all the parking location collected.
The reason being is that most of the navigation services are pointing up to the direction to the location of the business and not the location of the parking entrances.
What you will get?
Spot+ application will always be free without advertisement!!! That is our pledge.
