Who We Are:

Point Inside was founded in 2009 with a goal of becoming the world leading indoor mapping and indoor location based services platform. In 2020, looking to move beyond our core business of retail and travel, we identified an opportunity with last-mile package delivery inside of buildings. We are building up our team and technologies in preparation to launch Bootworks by Pointinsde as a start-up venture to capitalize on this opportunity. 

It turns out that indoor package delivery is VERY problematic. It consumes 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 biggest choke point for logistics carriers like UPS and FedEx. COVID-19 has 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.
