Judges from 18 companies including Twitter, Foursquare, Yahoo, MapQuest, and xAd recently came together to select 20 companies in 10 categories as finalists in the Local Search Insider Ad to Action Awards. And nominated in “Verticals and Marketplaces”? Urgent.ly ;-)

LSA noted that “entries were evaluated on ability to facilitate consumer actions (calls, clicks, store visits, etc.), innovation, ROI potential, ease of implementation and more.”

“I was very impressed by the breadth and quality of entries LSA received,” said Anne Mercogliano, head of SMB marketing at Twitter. “Being named a finalist in this competition means being part of a high caliber and innovative group.” 

Next up? Winners will be announced at the 2015 LSA Conference in LA, April 20-22. For more on that visit: http://bit.ly/LSA_15

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
