INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY

Where High-Tech Meets Human Connection

We’ve been there on the road with drivers over millions of miles and counting. Along the way, we have been at the forefront of new technologies, and have implemented a number of leading‐edge solutions that are paving the way for smoother roads ahead and happier, safer drivers wherever their destinations may take them.

Technology is providing us the tools and the flexibility to offer more convenience, transparency and efficiencies to Customers, Clients and Providers. Our tools allows for:

  1. Simple, intuitive end‐to‐end digital solutions for requesting services, tracking progress, getting real‐time updates, changing service details, providing feedback regarding services received, etc.
  2. Instant communication with a qualified representative that can “short cut” the time needed to find a solution, or bring trained, level‐headed thinking to emergency situations an app can’t answer.
  3. Full transparency for Clients ‐ from billing to complaints to real‐time dashboards and analysis (ETAs, ATAS, NPS, etc.). They’re also looking for the added value and satisfaction of knowing their customers are in expert hands that positively reflect their brands with every interaction.

Our goal is to be able to offer a Fully Automated Roadside Assistance System combined with the availability of very experienced agents whenever required. To us, technology is the tool, but it’s experienced people who make a difference when it comes to meeting, exceeding and, anticipating drivers’ needs.
