Fort McMurray Selected For Initial Launch City By Rooco, A Calgary Based Tech Startup
Rooco, The Traffic Ticket App, Initial Launch To Be In Fort McMurray
Calgary, Alberta: Rooco, a Calgary based tech startup, has chosen Fort McMurray as it’s initial launch city. Rooco, is a web based app that allows you to pay your traffic ticket right from your phone in 90 seconds or less. With Rooco, you’re guaranteed to pay less than the fine amount listed on your ticket. Saving you money, added frustration and hassles.
On why Fort McMurray was chosen as the initial launch city, Rooco’s Co-Founder and COO, Adam Ashton said “Fort McMurray is known to be young and vibrant city filled with awesome people from all over the country and we’re confident they’ll see the advantages Rooco offers over just paying your ticket outright. With Rooco you’re guaranteed to pay less than the fine amount on the ticket and you do it all from your phone with no hassle. Obviously getting a ticket hurts, so why not make it as painless as possible after the fact.”
Adam, who grew up in Fort McMurray, says he may have pushed a little extra hard for it to be the city for the company’s initial launch, “Living in Fort McMurray for a few years as a kid and then with my brother living there during the wildfire, it’s always been a special place for me. I’m glad we chose Fort McMurray, I think it’s the perfect place to start.”
Nowadays, in the on-demand economy, there’s an app for just about everything. In this case, Rooco.ca is a web application so there is no app to download, and the entire process takes less than 90 seconds. Simply upload your ticket, pay the determined amount - which will always be less than the ticket amount - and Rooco handles everything else.
About Rooco: Rooco, is a Calgary, Alberta based tech startup that allows people to pay their traffic tickets right from their phone, for less than the fine amount on the ticket. Rooco uses advanced technology and super-fast automation to help select the tickets that have a high likelihood of either reduced fine amounts or having the ticket withdrawn completely. Rooco takes on this risk and fights the ticket for you. Regardless of what the outcome is in court, all you ever pay is your initial discounted amount.
Rooco initially launched in Fort McMurray and has plans to grow throughout the rest of Alberta by the end of 2018.
