Leading London Business-Class Car Service Combines the Latest Technologies with
Traditional Customer Service Values

BETHESDA, Md. and LONDON — June 3, 2015 — Smart watches are quickly becoming the hottest category leader in the wearable device market. Analyst firm BI Intelligence estimates that smart watches will account for 50 percent of total wearable device shipments in 2015 and will expand to over 70 percent in 2019. This exponential growth rate is also generating the necessity for enterprises to incorporate compatible apps into their mobile marketing efforts. DMI and London-based, business-class car service Addison Lee announced today the launch of an Apple Watch app to better serve its London-based clientele with plans to extend the service to New York City by the end of the year.
