Low-Code App Delivers Digital Transportation Solution to Logistics Coordinator

Logistics app development has become a lot simpler in recent years, owing mostly to the advancement of new technologies that make software development faster and cheaper.

ZMac stands out from its competitors as a company that uses technology to try new things to great success. Since its establishment in 2009, the Wisconsin-based transportation broker has been working with businesses to ship their products around North America, specializing in oversized cargo services.

“We want to revolutionize the transportation industry—and we want to do it through technology and integrity” – Matt Ziegler, President, ZMac Transportation Solutions

Finding considerable success in its orders, ZMac wanted to fully digitize its order process by creating an app that could provide a streamlined and more effective way for customers to find exactly what they need for their freight transportation.

There was an issue, however; ZMac’s initial efforts to create a dedicated app through a third-party software developer fell short of expectations and left a lot to be desired. At this point, they turned to Impact.

Instead of traditional logistics app development, which can often last years and go over budget, Impact develops custom apps using the low-code platform, allowing our programmers to code software applications in a fraction of the time and cost as would be typically expected.

The low-code platform is intuitive and less unruly than traditional development, without sacrificing any of the complexity needed to make a sophisticated modern app.

Take a look at this video to watch Matt Ziegler, ZMac President, and Jon Evans, Impact Director of Solutions Architecture, discuss the ins and outs of the process and the collaboration between Impact and ZMac that led to success.
