Wednesday, 5 July 2017
Inugo Systems, a New Zealand start-up company which makes an innovative parking app 'ecosystem' has appointed Sam Barclay as Chief Executive Officer.
“Sam is going to take Inugo to the next level,” said Inugo COO Andrew Powers. “His experience building and commercialising technology companies in the US and his passion for solving real-world problems will give us the step up we need to bring New Zealand’s unique Inugo parking technology to the world.”
Barclay has spent the last two decades in the US helping build mobile retail systems for consumer goods companies. He has been involved in all aspects of software development – from development and delivery, to sales and executive management.
He has a joint commerce and law honours degree from New Zealand’s Otago University, and an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business. He recently returned to New Zealand with his family.
Barclay says, “Inugo’s solution to the parking problem is unique – everyone has a parking horror story. Inugo aims to fix this. Our vision is for drivers to be able to find a parking space, park and then pay for their parking wherever they are, using a simple app on their smartphone.”
“Inugo will make paying for parking easy, cashless, ticketless and safe. It will improve drivers’ lives while also greatly reducing the cost of customer service for car park operators.”
