We love it when our customers give us shout outs on Twitter and Facebook, which many have recently (Thanks Robert and Holly). Next to that we’re happy to humblebrag about various media talking about us … This week, for instance, there seems to be a steady trickle of folks in the social/media sphere chatting up Urgent.ly.
We’re really excited about (and appreciative of) the Location Based Marketing Association (LBMA) giving some props to our service, and reminding viewers that the on-demand economy is not just about ride sharing and food delivery.
Episode #222 of LBMA’s video podcast, with hosts Rob Woodbridge and Asif Khan, gets into how we do what we do and an anecdote or two from their own experiences… just watch: (jump to 25:35 if you want to see Urgent.ly, but please watch the whole show for their discussion of other cool startups.)
And stay tuned for more multimedia coverage on Urgent.ly later this 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.
