Parking-Spotter is the first winner of Milestone Community Kickstarter Contest.
The jury members were quite impressed with the passion and enthusiasm of the Parking Spotter developers. One member stated, “This is a brilliant way to showcase how a fairly simple integration can prove great value.” Another highlighted the app as a great idea and complemented its effective use of the XProtect software to handle camera integration.
Now that Parking Spotter has been selected as the winner, they will get development help from Milestone to complete their solution. Once the solution is completed, the next step will be assistance in formulating a messaging platform and a go-to-market strategy for the application. Preliminary work on this phase of the process is already underway, as Parking Spotter representatives had an exclusive one-hour session at MIPS with Milestone Vice President of Marketing, Kirsten Højland. The winners will also get a workshop at the Milestone corporate office, covering everything from pricing and licensing to final development and certification, and enter a mentor program to work with an existing Milestone Solution Partner. In other words, everything a burgeoning company needs to make a solid debut in the market.
When reflecting on the win and the opportunities it presents, Ciurte commented, “Besides a lot of joy, this award also means to us a great responsibility to those who voted for us and have shown their trust in our product. We will definitely go on and make this product a real success.”
