Let’s say you daughter is away at college, driving that old car you piloted for years before handing it down. It’s a great car, except for that pull to the right, and the occasional misfires in the starter. No no, it’s a good car. Well, it’s a fine car. It’ll probably never leave your daughter alone on a dark street in a strange town under teeming rain late at night. 

But, what if it does?

We’re no fear-mongers here at Urgent.ly. Just realists. And you’re not a careless parent – you’re just trying to do your best with what you’ve got.

And that’s why we invented FamilyView. 

Built right into the Urgent.ly iPhone app, FamilyView automatically flies into action the moment your loved one (or anyone you designate) makes a request for help though their copy of the app.

Taking your daughter’s scenario above – it’s late, dark and all that – you’re probably sleeping, phone next to your ear on the night stand. Bzzt… Bzzt: Your iPhone comes to life as your daughter, miles away, taps for help with that broken starter motor. Pick up your phone and the magic continues as you’re presented with a map that targets your her location and the location of the tow truck, now moving across the screen to help her. 

Tap to call your daughter or reach the the tow driver, whatever makes you feel sure she’s getting help. But you really don’t need to because the screen tells the whole story, live. Viola - lay back and watch as she goes from stranded to safely towed.

So get the app and protect your family, friends, co-workers… you name it. And maybe get that starter fixed while it’s on your mind, before you need us ;-/
