Traditional roadside business can be a pain…and a drain on your towing or roadside assistance business. But now, Urgent.ly is taking the industry by storm, combining great rates, fast digital payments and easy-to-use apps that make it easy for roadside businesses to be profitable.
As consumers live more and more through their mobile devices, the industry is ripe for pay-as-you go, instant access, on-demand roadside assistance solution. Consumers are no longer willing to pay membership or club fees based on antiquated insurance models. When they need help, they want to instantly connect with service providers; a virtual guarantee that “help is on the way;” and a cashless, flat-rate and straightforward pricing and payment system.
Urgent.ly delivers all that and more, using technology that is free to the towing or roadside provider and amazingly cost-effective for the customer. Consumers using Urgent.ly’s iOS mobile or web apps take advantage of the company’s proprietary real-time dispatch platform to connect to nearby, available help. They have access to more providers in their immediate area, with visibility into their provider’s movements via GPS tracking, instead of waiting blindly for a service provider contracted by an insurance company that may have two to three jobs to complete first.
Urgent.ly allows the consumer to see the provider on a map moving in their direction, and allows them to talk directly to the driver through the Urgent.ly application.
The iOS consumer application is free and can be downloaded directly from the Apple iTunes store or via web app.
With Urgent.ly, a six mile tow costs the consumer a mere $99, and a roadside repair just $75 — far less than the $150 annual fee traditionally paid for an insurance program that may never be used. And the benefits aren’t for consumers alone. The towing providers are seeing large benefits, as well. Urgent.ly is paying providers $50 for a road side repair and $75 for a 6 mile tow with $3 per mile over.
If you are tired of the low fees you are paid from traditional roadside companies that often don’t cover the cost of doing business, give Urgent.ly a try. Urgent.ly is simplifying the process and making roadside assistance more profitable for service providers. It simply matches the closest provider with a customer in need via their driver application or dispatch portal, and charges the consumer a fair market rate for on-demand service from quality providers. And all of these
technologies are free to the towing or roadside assistance provider.
