SILICON SLOPES, Utah, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Omadi, Inc., the custom mobile technology leader of towing software, teams up with the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum (ITRHFM) to help with fundraising activities and to raise awareness for the Survivor Fund.
The Survivor Fund was established in 2005 "to provide immediate financial support to the families of these men and women who lose their lives in the line of service in our industry." In recent years, the dangers of towing and roadside assistance have been made very clear. On average, the towing industry loses 60 operators annually making it one of the most dangerous professions in the world. That means, on average, every six days a tow operator leaves home for the last time.
Since entering the towing industry in 2013, Omadi has been disheartened by these figures. "Being a custom software, we often spend time with our clients on site helping to implement our product. We've gotten to know these wonderful individuals not simply as clients but friends. It pains us anytime we hear that one of these dedicated professionals loses their life while in the line of duty," said Charles Lukens, CEO of Omadi. "Omadi's mission is to provide uncommon, disruptive, cutting edge technology to the towing industry. This mission also includes any uncommon effort on how we can extend a helpful hand to the industry. Upon learning of the Survivor Fund, we became anxiously engaged in seeking ways to contribute to and promote the fund."
Omadi acts as an operating system for towing companies. Millions of tows or jobs are run through the platform annually. Omadi has committed to donating a percentage of each job to the Survivor Fund. This contribution alone will be able to provide assistance to multiple families.
Omadi is also working to actively promote the fund through other industry partners, email campaigns, and general awareness of the issue at large. They are also in the process of putting together a contribution match program for their clients making it easier for many more donations to be possible.
"We are thrilled about Omadi's involvement with the Survivor Fund," said Lee Roberts, Board Member of the ITRHFM and Co-Chair of the Survivor Fund. "We all wish for the day when there are no more deaths in our profession; however, the reality is that more lives will be lost and more families will be in need. Fortunately, though, with partnerships like this, we will be able to maintain our goal for the Survivor Fund to create a strong and secure perpetual offering to the families of those in the industry when tragedies occur."
The Survivor Fund is managed alongside the ITRHFM's industry memorial wall, The Wall of the Fallen. Unveiled in 2006 at the towing museum in Chattanooga, TN, the Wall of the Fallen has already had to add over 400 names to the Wall reinforcing the value and need for the Survivor Fund in the towing industry.
