Spotizen is a Facebook chatbot that will help you find parking spots throughout Singapore. All you need to do is send your current location to the chatbot for it to do its job. According to the developers, the chatbot uses predictive analytics to go through more than 2,000 parking lots. Will the chatbot live up to our expectations when we test out its main features? Let’s try it out!
As the chatbot uses Facebook Messenger as its main platform, you will need to activate it manually. As soon as you launch the chatbot, you will need to click on “Get Started” at the bottom of the screen. As soon as you give the chatbot permission, it will introduce itself and give you a brief description of its services. Before you can start using the chatbot, you must send your location.
Also, keep in mind that you cannot use the chat box to converse with Spotizen. You can only use the options displayed on the screen. The chatbot will ask you to select from the following options:
Let’s say that you pick “alerts” from all the options given by the chatbot. Under this option, the chatbot will ask you if you want to know about parking. If you continue, the chatbot will ask you to send your current location to it through Facebook Messenger. Based on what you send, the chatbot will show you parking spots near your location. The chatbot will give you the price of the parking spot. It will tell you the exact location on Google Maps. Also, the chatbot gives additional information such as the percentage of vacancy in the parking location.
When you select “services,” the chatbot will display the following menu:
- 2W Servicing
- Roadside Assistance
- Car Servicing
- Servicing Offers
If you go for “2W Servicing,” the chatbot will show you the best providers that are around your area. For example, if the location is Bukit Panjang, the chatbot suggests places such as SCOOT Veloci Research & Development, Set Werkz, and Unique Motorsports at Serangoon Road. The chatbot gives you the ratings, number of likes, and the distance from your current location for every provider. If you select the “view” option under the name of the provider, the chatbot will redirect you to its official Facebook page. If you hit “call” the chatbot will ask you to pick an application so that it can contact the provider.
Similarly, when you select roadside assistance and car servicing, the chatbot will suggest providers that are around your location. When you click on “Servicing Offers,” the chatbot will suggest a variety of discounts that will help you cut maintenance costs. When you click on any of the offers suggested by the chatbot, you will get redirected to the official website. For example, Volkswagen offers a package for just $59. If you want to avail this offer, you have to get in touch with Volkswagen directly.
When you choose “Specials” from the main menu, the chatbot will display the following:
- Great SG Sale
- Bank Card
- New Car
For “Great SG Sale,” the chatbot shows a plethora of interesting offers. For example, the chatbot gives you a great discount on a convertible car seat. If you are interested in buying any of the products, the chatbot will redirect you to a website where you can complete the purchase. When you select “Insurance,” the chatbot will give you a variety of offers from different companies such as HSBC, American Express, Citibank, and Aviva.
Upon clicking “Indulge,” the chatbot shows you different types of experiences that money can buy. For example, you can get the experience of riding a superbike by taking the Harley Davidson Street 750 for 60 minutes. You can also get an adventure bag by Touratech to carry your luggage around as you travel.
“New Car” allows you to book appointments with various dealerships so that you can test drive the vehicles before purchasing them. Also, they give you offers if you are willing to go the extra mile. For example, Mini will give you $700 if you are willing to refer one of your friends to the company. “Fuel” gives you discounts so that you can save money while filling up your vehicle in Singapore.
Spotizen is a great parking chatbot that comes with a plethora of features. For starters, you can get to know which parking spots are free and the price, near your location. You can get to know about excellent providers who are well-known for their high-quality services. Also, the chatbot gives you great offers and discounts which will help you save money.
