Honk Technologies Testing Towbook Integration

Honk Technologies, a digital roadside assistance and vehicle transport company, announced that it is currently exploring integration options with Towbook, the leader in cloud-based towing software for dispatching, impounds and reporting. The initial integration enables partners to receive, accept and manage Honk towing and roadside assistance jobs from within their Towbook system and get paid instantly after job completion. Testing is taking place in specific cities for a limited time with select Honk Partners. “When we ask our partners what they’d like to see from Honk, one of the top requests has long been the ability to send Honk jobs through their Towbook dispatching software,” said Corey Brundage, CEO at Honk. “We’ve been working closely with Towbook to ensure that this integration provides the ease-of-use, visibility and powerful functionality that Honk partners have come to expect, all from within the platform they use to manage day-to-day operations.” Source: Honk Press Release
