Today we’re excited to announce a giant step forward in driver safety and on-demand auto services for anyone using the latest version of the Urgent.ly iOS application. Our latest rev of the app is now packaged with free Accident Detection and Accident Alerts.

“Through our partnership with Zendrive, the driver-centric analytics company, Urgent.ly consumers will have the security of knowing that if they are in an accident we’re there for them, asking if they need assistance and alerting loved ones,” said Chris Spanos, Urgent.ly CEO and co-founder. “We’re eager to extend this added peace of mind to the thousands of existing Urgent.ly on-demand roadside service customers, and those to come.“

In the event of an accident (detected by the Zendrive technology above 30 mph), sensors in the Urgent.ly app will be able to pinpoint the location of the incident and allow the customer to request roadside help and auto-alert – via text  message – a predefined contact.

“We are thrilled to work with Urgent.ly to offer the first ever product of its kind,” said Jonathan Matus, Zendrive’s CEO. “We’ve done extensive testing and are pleased to finally offer the services for free to Urgent.ly consumers.”

The combination of the visibility of seeing and tracking trucks on a map, plus our unmatched FamilyView feature (family members automatically notified in the event someone requests assistance), and now Zendrive’s accident detection technology, gives Urgent.ly the most advanced roadside assistance service in the market and continues to lead the industry in innovation.  

Setup is simple, from Setting (above) or part of the sign-up process.
