What? ~ Spatula is a delivery tracking app. When used, a live tracking link is sent via SMS that the customer opens in one click to track the oncoming driver.

They can also call or message the driver directly. The website allows businesses to track job status and staff location in real time, while an iOS and Android app allows drivers to grab jobs, navigate to tasks, capture photos and signatures and send tracking links and communicate with the customer.

Where? ~ Website at spatula.io and search ‘Spatula Go’ on Apple or Google Play app stores.

Who? ~ Spatula is developed by Fleet Engineering’s founder Andrew Walker and tech team Damien O’Hara, Izaak Sultan and Henry Greville.

Quotation ~ “We wanted to fix the experience of waiting for things. We wanted to create a new level of live mobile interactive service to the delivery of every product and service, no matter how small the business,” Andrew Walker said.

$/News ~ The company has invested $250,000 to date, and is raising a follow-up $500,000 seed round now (with $100,000 already committed). Fleet Engineering has completed a successful first year of its partnership with the University of Western Australia, and was a finalist in the recent KPMG Energise 2.0 accelerator program.

The potential market includes 20 billion e-commerce-driven deliveries and the $10 billion home services sector. The priority is to carve out market segments and achieve sustainable growth. Fleet has paying Spatula customers in restaurant-managed food deliveries and small-medium home services in Australia, US, Canada and Germany.
