Drivemode, the mobile-based automotive technology company, has announced a new integration with roadside assistance technology provider Urgent.ly. Through this integration, Drivemode’s active users will have in-app access to Urgent.ly’s fast and safe roadside assistance.
This convergence of the automotive and high-tech sectors grants drivers access to connectivity features, the latest apps, and all of the technology in their phones as though it is embedded in the car, allowing their focus to remain on the road.
This is Drivemode’s first partnership since it announced its $6.5 million series A funding round, led by Panasonic corporation. Urgent.ly, which provides roadside assistance technology through both branded and white label products, will be featured within Drivemode’s app, alongside other partners such as Spotify, WhatsApp, and Waze.
Based in Silicon Valley, Drivemode is an Android app created by former Zipcar and Tesla innovators. Designed to change the way consumers interact with their cars, Drivemode’s “no-look” interface allows users to focus on the road ahead, not their phone, while easily accessing music, navigation, calls, texts and now roadside assistance.
Urgent.ly delivers roadside assistance service, products, and technology through direct-to-consumer, on-demand service to drivers at their moment of need – all without subscription or membership fee. Urgent.ly lets drivers track their service provider’s progress and ETA in real-time on their smartphone.
