FOSTER CITY, CA - Back in March of this year, the National Automobile Club (NAC) introduced a new emergency roadside assistance smartphone web application called "NAC RoadSvc". The service allowed people across the country to download the free web application onto their smartphones and access service when they need it - regardless of club affiliation. When their vehicle breaks down, they simply touch the NAC RoadSvc icon on their phone, and they are connected to the company's round-the-clock call center. NAC identifies the nature of the breakdown, the vehicle location, and dispatches a local roadside service provider to assist. Payment for the service is all arranged, via major credit card, while still on the line.  

The NAC RoadSvc web app is now available to BlackBerry users and can be downloaded from the BlackBerry App World site (under the "Travel - Planning" category). This addition to the existing iPhone availability expands program accessibility to millions more potential users. Versions for the other smartphones are presently under development

NAC has been providing praiseworthy roadside assistance and towing services since 1924. Along with membership programs, NAC serves a diverse group of clients including private and public fleets, fleet management companies, insurance companies, and fuel card providers.
