Who We Are
It didn’t start with an answer, Point Inside started with a series of observations. Location technology was moving indoors. e-commerce was growing up. IoT was emerging. Data platforms were helping companies shape themselves. Point Inside was founded on the principle that these worlds would collide and a new model would be required to capture, organize and make sense of it all. Due to massive disruption from e-commerce, brick and mortar retail was a logical place to start. Since 2009, Point Inside has become the world leading indoor mapping and indoor location based services platform.
In early 2020, we started to think outside the box, looking beyond retail and travel. We identified an opportunity with in-building route optimization for package delivery. The initial business case was promising, but we also uncovered a much bigger opportunity.
It turns out that indoor delivery is extraordinarily problematic. It ties-up valuable resources, trucks and drivers, for long periods of time. A large mall can consume two trucks and two drivers for a whole day. Last mile delivery, which is serviced by these same trucks and drivers, is the narrowest bottleneck for logistics carriers like UPS and FedEX. COVID-19 created chaos for them as well. Delivery demand shifted from a balanced 50/50 commercial and residential to 30/70. They don’t have enough drivers and trucks… or do they?
That’s where we come in...
Bootworks by Point Inside reduces the number of people and trips required for deliveries. It costs delivery companies over $1 Billion per year to deliver packages inside large buildings. A small percentage in savings alone would justify the change, but the true benefit goes well beyond the reduction in expense. Bootworks allows delivery companies to re-allocate thousands of vehicle hours per month representing a sizable increase to their overall shipping capacity without any capital investment.
