StecPoint offers innovative parking solution via mobile app, shared economy

Permanent or longer-term users of the spaces can register their parking spots with StecPoint, and rent timed access to it when they are not using it themselves. The model works very similarly to car-sharing, which has been a successful way for people to navigate busy urban centers while also earning a supplemental income on the side. StecPoint utilizes the same concept, and gives users the ability to rent spaces for a few hours or up to three months.

“Urban space is utilized so inefficiently, especially in major population centers,” Vladislav Mokrousov, CEO at StecPoint, says. “We see this especially in parking areas. Downtown areas, residential buildings, and shopping and business centers. For busy people needing to find a parking spot quickly, the task can be a nightmare. Our app brings order to an otherwise very chaotic and stressful experience.”

The process of renting a space with StecPoint’s app is simple. A user lists their space, and a tenant agrees to rent it according to the listing user’s terms, including an allotted time frame, monitor compliance, and other rental conditions. Depending on the level of interest in a particular spot, a listing user can rent a space to several other users throughout the day, minimizing the amount of time the space is left empty.

In addition to allowing the listing user to earn income, the renting user can save a lot of money by having to rent their own space at full market value, and potentially in a very unfavored location. Additionally, owners of parking lots near shopping and business centers will see an influx of new foot traffic, and the service also has the potential to alleviate the burden on public transportation.

The app’s UI is built from the ground up with users in mind, and is more than easy to explore a city map, choose a spot, and make a purchase. Users shopping for a space receive an electronic access key for spots requiring entry through a gate or other barrier. The app’s integrated payment system and customer support services are readily available for users in need of assistance.

Mokrousov has stated a few updates for the app are already in the works. First up is the OurParking feature, which serves as a recommendation service.

To date, StecPoint has received great interest from customers in the UK and US as its use continues to grow in popularity across Russia. The Russian-based firm was founded in 2009 and employs more than 70 experienced mid-level and senior-level specialists, including developers, designers, and QA engineers. To date, StecPoint has served in the custom software automation sector, working primarily with government agencies. Additionally, StecPoint has delivered highly-loaded SaaS platforms, marketplaces, ERP and CRM systems, as well as electronic and corporate portal solutions.

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 1, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 1, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Oct 1, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
