Urgnt.ly For When Next Day Service is a Day Late

So your whirlpool tub is leaking all over your master bathroom floor, the water is dripping through the lights in your kitchen and continues its path to the bottom of the house until it pools in the basement.  Your mother-in-law just moved out of the in-law suite in the basement, or this would have been a blessing. Your boss is coming over this evening for dinner and your promotion is on the line, so what would have been a blessing has turned to utter disaster.

You need help and tomorrow won’t do.  In fact, now is too late.  You need faster than now. What do you do?

That’s where Urgnt.ly comes in.  Contractors carry a GPS-enabled smartphone or tablet running the Urgnt.ly app, so they can immediately respond to a potential customer with an urgent need, maybe for a tow truck, plumber, or electrician.  In short, Urgnt.ly


Urgntly is a new DC-area startup founded by 4 local serial entrepreneurs, including ex-AOL, Revolution Health and VerisSign executive Surendra Goel and former Reliacast co-founder Ric Fleisher.
