TruckIT, a construction technology startup specializing in the innovation of on-demand hauling and fleet/dispatch management, was awarded first runner-up by the Technology Association of Georgia's Southeastern Software Association 2019 Impact Awards (TAG SSA Impact Awards) in the Independent Software Vendor category.
TAG's SSA Impact Awards recognize companies and their teams that have demonstrated outstanding leadership in bringing new technology solutions to the market. The official awards page notes the SSA Impact Award winners "have built outstanding software solutions that deliver a significantly positive impact on both their customers and business community."
The TruckIT team attended the SSA 2019 Impact Awards reception at the Georgia Aquarium on June 27. TAG's President, Larry Williams, and TAG SSA Board Chairman, Brian Benn, were present to congratulate TruckIT as the first runner-up, beating out 13 other applicants and three awards finalists within the Independent Software Vendor category. TAG's SSA board members personally nominated a total of 40 Georgia-based tech businesses — all of which varied in offering, size and annual revenue — to apply for the 2019 Impact Awards.
"We strive to hire team members who have an innate moral compass and who are passionate about applying it to their work in order to build the best products available," said Pace Davis, CEO of TruckIT. "Because of that, the entire TruckIT Team feels both rewarded and motivated knowing our technology is actually improving industry workflows. And we're beyond privileged to see those results first-hand from a granular, human level as well as from an enterprise-business level. When we were nominated for the Impact Awards, we knew this was the story we wanted to tell the world."
