The founders felt that the Industry had begun to recognize the value that Mobile Technologies could deliver, so set about identifying and developing the Logmate Drivers Logbook system.

"I am a keen user, and admirer, of New Zealand's burgeoning Software-as-a-Service sector, in particular the likes of Xero & Vend. They have proven beyond any shadow of a doubt, that New Zealanders have what it takes to build Market-leading technology businesses.
When the opportunity to get involved & build something that will deliver a genuine benefit to Drivers AND make our roads safer for all, I jumped at the chance."
Greg is now focused on building the business and establishing a great team to take Logmate to the next level.
The Logmate platform is comprised a number of technology components. Primarily users will be aware, and interact with, Smart-phone Applications and a Cloud-based Administration panel.
We launched with 2 applications; covering the most popular Mobile Operating Systems; being iOS (iPhones) and Android (Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc)
The Smart-phone Applications are developed using Open Source Software; specifically Backbone, Marionette & Cordova.
The Back-end service provides storage, management and security services to the Logmate platform.
It has been developed in Ruby with Postgres SQL.
