What's CRS Road Assist?

Due to the increasing number of vehicles with modern vehicle technology and alternative propulsion systems, not only the rescue workers but also road assistance and towing services benefit from specific vehicle information that will allow them to assist quickly and safely. 

The Solution: Vehicle database for the Roadside Assistance 
To response to this challenge, Moditech Rescue Solutions BV started with the construction of a special database for the Roadside Assistance and towing services in 2012: the Crash Recovery System Road Assist Edition. This edition incorporates:

  • All relevant information for roadside assisters, including the latest technology (electric and hybrid vehicles)
  • The database contains all passenger cars and vans introduced since 2007
  • The interactive top and side view show all relevant items such as the battery, tow hook, (electrical) parking brake and locations such as the fuse box in one overview
  • In case of a hybrid or electric vehicle, the roadside assister is notified immediately with deactivation procedures after selection of the vehicle
  • Additional information can be easily accessed by clicking on the various components in the diagram

The CRS Road Assist Edition is available in 19 languages equipped with our European database. With this development, digital vehicle information has become available for an important other member of the emergency services besides the rescue workers: the roadside assisters.
