Business Description: Pop-A-Lock is a national
franchise that provides road side assistance to
stranded motorists. Services available include
car-door unlocking, tire changing, fuel delivery
and jump starts.
White Papers: Pop-A-Lock
uses PageGate in conjunction with their proprietary
software. The proprietary application is Internet
based so PageGate provides redundancy for notification
in the event that the Internet is down. Due to
PageGate's logging capabilities, messages can
be retrieved and entered into the database when
access is regained.
In addition Pop-A-Lock uses the
Commandline/ASCII Interface to provide dialup
dispatch to paging devices, and mobile phones.
This has proven to be more reliable than the email
delivery provided by the existing Pop-A-Lock paging
carriers. This has provided additional flexibility
and reliability so that Pop-A-Lock can be more
responsive to their customers needs.
