Tiqqed Launch Seen as Disruptive Technology

In the technology age, new releases and programming improvements are commonplace, but every so often, a new release changes the way businesses operate. Social media changed the way we market. Sustainability changed the way we manage product lifecycles. Tiqqed is in line to change the way we communicate. From inception, Tiqqed was destined to be different. It was designed to solve all the issues businesses and end consumers face using traditional email: a lack of security, difficult design and poor interface, and perhaps most importantly, a complete lack of reliability.

Central Israeli city rolls out high-tech parking patrol - National

Central Israeli city rolls out high-tech parking patrol - National | RE.WORK Technology | Scoop.it
Cruiser cameras do everything but buy the doughnuts.
Pip Curtis's insight:

Parking enforcement officers have heard it all before. “I only stopped for a second,” “I didn’t notice,” “I thought it was allowed,"...

But at least in the central Israeli city of Rishon Letzion, the rules are about to change. Instead of walking her turf, the municipal officer will tour it in comfort, in a gadget-filled cruiser. Instead of parking tickets tucked underneath the front windshield wiper, drivers will receive them in the mail, and they’ll include pictures documenting the violation as well as a link to a website with the pictures. In many cases, drivers won’t know they’ve been issued a citation until it arrives in the mail, even if they were in the car when it happened.
