Urgent.ly Takes the Towman Show!
Another American Towman Exposition show is in the books and what a weekend it was! The biggest event of its kind drew thousands of towers and hundreds of our partners to Baltimore for three days, ending Sunday. (We even saw a bit of competition stop by to see how we might work together, but that’s on the down low for now :-)
It was gratifying to speak with so many towing and roadside pros who are successfully using Urgent.ly on a daily basis, and terrific to meet with the scores of interested potential partners (most of whom kicked the signup process off right from our booth).
Take a look at some of the pictures from the whirlwind event. And note the image at bottom where you’ll get the answer to the tease we posted last week.
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.
