This week brings two more terrific partnerships to Urgent.ly! Say hello to C2G, LLC’s Cost2Drive service and Tollsmart, LLC’s Tollsmart calculator app, two products that allow consumers to more cost-effectively plan trips. And now with Urgent.ly embedded they’ll be able to add peace of mind to those treks.
So what are Cost2Drive and Tollsmart? Just as they imply, these products give anyone planning a route deep insights into what that path is going to cost, from gas prices to toll fees. And they even offer cheaper options along the way, including alternate routes around those tolls. It’s a great way to save time and money this summer.
Urgent.ly roadside services are all available with a click inside the Tollsmart app (iOS and Android) and the Cost2Drive Website. (See the announcement from C2D.)
“Intuitively we’ve always felt that roadside assistance would be of interest to our users as they’re about to take long-distance car trips” said Jim Kovarik, President of C2G. "Now that we’ve validated the interest we’re excited to move ahead with this relationship given that the summer travel season underway.“
Yep, we agree. And we’re excited for Jim’s consumers to try us out! Why not check them out right now:
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.
