Urgent.ly Roadside Assistance, the leading global, digital roadside assistance platform, today announced a partnership with Tredit Tire and Wheel Company, the leading distributor of tires to RV and trailer OEMs across North America. Urgent.ly will provide a full suite of roadside assistance services for Tredit’s end-user customers. Protected customers have the convenience of digital dispatch, real-time status updates and live-tracking.

The new Tredit Advantage program, powered by Urgent.ly, provides digitally connected services not only for flat-tire change, but also towing, car-lockout, and jump start, covering both the tow vehicle and the trailer. Meeting customers in their preferred channel, Urgent.ly offers the ability to request service via a traditional dedicated phone line as well as a Tredit-branded native mobile application, available on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Urgent.ly provides the fastest, safest and most reliable roadside assistance service in North America by digitally connecting motorists in need with nearby, available, and qualified service providers. With the largest digitally connected service network of over 45,000 roadside assistance service vehicles, a 24/7/365 customer support team, live-tracking, and real-time status updates, Urgent.ly delivers an innovative and market-leading solution that drives customer loyalty and operational efficiency.

“What we are most excited about is the partnership with Urgent.ly to exclusively deliver their simple and intuitive application with web-integration to the towable industry - the experience is really as simple as using an UBER for roadside assistance and such an exciting departure from the traditional roadside programs offered to our industry,” said Andrew Wuescher, VP of Sales and Marketing of Tredit. “Along with the extensive product warranties already supported by Tredit, this program allows us to reach the end-user customers and help them with their roadside events in the most comprehensive method ever offered in the RV and trailer industry.”  We are always trying to find ways to give the end user a good travel experience and minimize the downtime, when they “just want to get there”, said Missy Rogers, National Accounts Manager of Tredit.

“A founding objective of our mission - to reinvent the global roadside assistance industry - includes providing innovative products and service across a wide range of automotive vehicles and customer channels” said Urgent.ly CEO and Co-Founder Chris Spanos. “We’re excited to bring Urgent.ly’s innovative roadside assistance platform and service to recreational vehicles, trailers, and other medium- and heavy-duty vehicles in partnership with Tredit as the market leader.”

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.
