It’s Windshieldink’s goal to improve everyone’s experience on the road by continuing to expand our license plate messaging platform for the public good. Our new online service is called Alerter and it’s designed to help with amber alerts and help locate missing vehicles. For example, it allows you to check on that strange vehicle parked in your back alley. The Alerter services works inside our mobile app so you don’t need to do anything different when using the app in order to access the Alerter databases.
What is Windshieldink? Windshieldink is a free mobile vehicle messaging platform launched in late 2016 that allows anyone to make themselves reachable via their license plate number should an issue arise with their vehicle. With Windshieldink there is no excuse why you cannot be contacted if your car is going to be towed or if your car alarm is going off. Though our app is designed for license plate messaging, the integration of Windshieldink Alerter provides added benefits to our users and the general public.
You are a police department looking for a stolen vehicle or you are a trucking company wondering where that missing trailer is. Perhaps the public can help you find that vehicle. Our Alerter database will allow you to post the license plate and a vehicle description, and a user instruction message. Any member of the public wondering about a suspicious vehicle that seems out of place can use our app to verify the license plate, which automatically checks the Alerter database to see if an authority in any location happens to be looking for that vehicle.
If that license plate is posted in our Alerter system, an in-app pop-up message will verify the vehicle description and display information identifying the authority looking for it. Using the app, the person can then easily send a direct message to that authority. The message can be sent anonymously and can include a GPS location for the vehicle. Even if the vehicle is from a different jurisdiction, the app will flag the vehicle as an alert vehicle if it is registered with Alerter.
Our goal is to give the public a simple way of helping the authorities find missing vehicles. We will continue to move forward to expand with even more great services built upon our platform. We’re driven by our objective to be one of the most useful apps for vehicle owners and we’re committed to bringing innovative solutions to drivers everywhere.
