Thrower describes BUMP.com as the solution to the final communication roadblock, “On average, we spend five years of our lives in a car, and 70+ years in a relationship with a vehicle parked somewhere. Motorists have been stuck in the communication stone age, limited to a horn or a paper note for far too long. BUMP.com is breaking down this final barrier in the world of communication.”
BUMP.com is a communications platform that allows users to connect online and offline via unique identifiers including license plates, mobile phones and online profiles.
Offering web and mobile messaging tools for consumer and commercial markets, it provides lifestyle and location-based benefits.
