LANGLEY, B.C. — Trucking-software provider Maddocks Systems is marking twenty years in business — a great achievement, if you consider the meltdown of many tech. companies lately.
Maddocks is based in Langley, B.C., and was founded in 1981. Since the beginning it has worked exclusively in the transportation industry.
The company’s flagship product TruckMate for Windows, is an enterprise-wide client server product that allows users to use AS400, RS6000 and Windows NT platforms. With over 400 installed systems, Maddocks lays claim to being the leading trucking software provider in North America.
“I think the stability of our company has been the key to our sustained growth through the years,” explains Bob Maddocks, chief executive officer. “The relationship we form with clients could be described as a partnership. A commitment is made, with the goal being that both parties grow stronger.”
Examples of this continued commitment have been apparent since the company’s beginning, Maddocks points out. Alice Swinney of Shadow Lines, who became the first Maddocks client twenty years ago, has witnessed this first hand.
“I think the excellent customer support provided is what has made Maddocks successful. That’s number one to me and that’s what counts to trucking companies that depend on trucking software,” explains Swinney. “Our company wouldn’t have been able to grow to where it is today without our relationship with Maddocks.”
