Project requirements and

Client's needs

A single place to manage all your trucking operations.

The founder of zPatch Technologies has over 10 years of experience in the trucking and logistics industry. As he switched to Hospitality and Start-up arena, his passion for all things trucking remained the same. He wanted to develop a platform which would enhance and improve unique internal process of trucking and logistics companies that have been unchanged for decades.

The existing systems for trucking companies are too complex, expensive and created without the end user in mind. These are usually enterprise systems with overly compound design, where a smaller company pays for the entire package, while being unable to select the functionalities that cater to their needs the best, without incurring big costs.

The vision of zPatch Technologies was to create a unique dashboard solution that would enable small and medium trucking companies in the USA (with the total addressable market amounting to over 400k companies) to streamline their processes, both in terms of tracking, communicating with their clients transparently, and simplifying the complex administration behind the billing process.

Solving industry's current problems and

Main challenges

Through ultimate managment system that will improve workflow for drivers, shippers and carriers.

One of the main challenges was disrupting the traditional communication channels of the trucking industry which mostly included phone and fax communication. We've established multiway communication with drivers on the move, where every employee should be able communicate with the same driver in real time, and manage the whole shipment.

That being said, the first task in order was to introduce them to the new system and digitalize their usual processes, by taking the greatest care of the UX and producing a visually appealing solution which is also highly user-friendly.
