Drivemode and Urgent.ly to enhance connected car services via smartphone
Drivemode, a mobile-based automotive technology company, has announced new integration with roadside assistance technology provider Urgent.ly. Drivemode stated that its active users will now have in-app access to Urgent.ly’s services. Through this integration, Drivemode's active users across 180 countries will have in-app access to Urgent.ly's fast and safe roadside assistance. The goal of this is to keep drivers focused on the road by enabling mobile device features in such a way to make it seem like they are embedded in the car.
"We're thrilled to now be able to offer our users the very best in roadside assistance," said Yo Koga, Co-founder and CEO of Drivemode. "With Urgent.ly we're expanding the level of services drivers can access within our product, furthering our mission to provide a safe and distraction-free way to enjoy full connectivity while behind the wheel."

"Drivemode customers will now have instant access to the most advanced roadside assistance solution in the market. Urgent.ly and Drivemode are giving everyone with a smartphone access to a premium driving experience."
