OranjTag is an online parking discovery platform to connect parking seekers with parking providers.
Finding a parking spot is a problem that many motorists face on a daily basis. Due to lack of information, motorists are not able to locate parking spots around their destination. It forces them to park their vehicles inappropriately on the road and live with a fear of their vehicle getting towed. Struggle to find a parking spot results in wastage of time and fuel and leads to frustration. Unsystematic parking on roads contributes to congestion, traffic jam and increased commute time for everyone.
OranjTag is a smart solution to all the parking woes. Our team aims to bring in efficiencies in the parking system by linking the parking providers with parking seekers using advanced technology. The parking providers benefit by higher utilization of their parking inventory, increase in revenues and one stop solution to manage multiple customers. The motorists get to locate parking spots around their destination, check real time availability status and make a hassle-free online transaction.
OranjTag strives to make daily commute convenient and Indian cities smart and future-ready.
