Enabling Real-Time Emergency Support for Car Owners



A global provider of emergency assistance services turned to Altoros to implement a 24/7 support system for car owners.

Brief results of the collaboration:

  • Processing 150+ emergency requests daily, the delivered system helped to resolve around 116,000 road incidents.
  • As the developed solution got recognized by end users, the customer managed to attract a number of insurance providers as partners.
  • The company was able to automate manual workflows and enable 24/7 customer support.

The customer

The company is a global provider of emergency assistance services for the automotive, travel, insurance, and healthcare industries. Founded in 1992 in New Zealand, the organization also operates in Australia and the United Kingdom.

The need

When the company turned to Altoros, it had a legacy system—for handling emergency requests—built on top of the outdated technology stack. The product was hard to maintain, it was impossible to extend the functionality, and lacked web interface. As a result, employees were not able to process emergency requests timely.

Cooperating with Altoros, the company wanted to create a cloud-native solution that would ensure 24/7 request processing in real time and let work from any place.

The challenges

Under the project, the team at Altoros had to address the following issues: To process emergency requests immediately, it was important to enable GPS tracking and visualize incidents on a map in real time. A vehicle location needed to be identified even if a user’s mobile phone is in the sleeping mode.

The solution

By integrating with the PubNub API, developers at Altoros made it possible to monitor user vehicles and incident location in real time. Our engineers also enabled the delivered solution to visualize incidents, maintenance points, and tow trucks in Google Maps. By implementing a custom background service, the team at Altoros ensured that a vehicle location could still be tracked when a user mobile phone is in the sleeping mode. To foster processing of emergency requests, our developers built a survey functionality, so that employees could efficiently provide car owners with the required assistance.
