RAPITOW, "Uber for tow trucks" outpacing growth expectations

TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Less than 90 days after launching in the Canadian marketplace, roadside assistance app Rapitow is outpacing growth expectations.

"We are thrilled to report that over 40% of tow truck companies have jumped on board," says Rapitow CEO Waheed Subhani. "We quickly covered Ontario, and we're hearing from companies across the country wanting to sign up. They are currently on a waitlist, but it won't be long before we are rescuing stranded motorists from coast to coast!"

With the tap of your smartphone, Rapitow dispatches the closest tow truck in minutes, and lets you track your tow truck's location in real-time. The result: better, faster, affordable and smarter roadside assistance.

Rapitow is solution-based technology, eliminating the inefficiencies and costs associated with the outdated call-centre dispatch model used by traditional roadside assistance companies.

"We are in the business of emergency response, and it is not acceptable to be waiting on the side of the road for a call-center to answer the phone. We have moved passed that," says Subhani. "We can have you safe at home before the 'old guys' even answer your call."

Subhani, an IT software consultant, joined forces to create Rapitow with his brother-in-law Joe Borg, a tow truck operator for over 20 years.

At $9 per month, Rapitow offers piece of mind and costs less than the average single tow. Priced per car, rather than driver, membership is affordable for all, especially the large demographic of young drivers.

Rapitow will announce its expansion in the USA in coming weeks.

Rapitow Founders Waheed Subhani and Joe Borg are available for media interviews.
